“Dear Holy Spirit, shine your light into the places of darkness in my life. Show me my sins, everything that blocks me from encountering God. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
"Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for our sins and being victorious over death and sin. I confess my sin to you(pause, to tell Jesus what the Holy Spirit has shown you). Forgive my sins by your blood and help me follow you. Holy Spirit, fill me that I may be able to receive your gift to love God and His people. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."
Today's main passage:
Today is the second part of yesterday's message.
Yesterday's Psalm 143:1-6 describes how we would fall into darkness and depression when we are being attacked by our enemies. Actually we use the term "anxiety attack" quite often and of course "depression" is a bigger attack. The situation of Psalm 143:1-7 is exactly the reverse of Psalm 23:1-3.
Today's Psalm 143:8-12 is totally different. After Psalm 143:8"Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you", there is a major paradigm shift from the previous seven verses.
Because of the waking up in the morning to have a time with Abba, depression out and Psalm 23:4-6 becomes a reality.
Please read below of those similarities that I have found to help you to know that once you have a time with Abba(the best time is in the morning as describe in today's Psalm), depression can be turned right side up to become a wonderful experience of God with us rather than depression with us:
Send an angel to kick out all the army of depression for us so that we can walk joyfully in your presence each day. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
