S4, Ep. 2: Why Was Elijah Depressed?




In life, we face storms; we may face depression. But take heart; God is your ever-present help in times of trouble. He will be your strength. In this episode of Coffee With Jesus, we talk about how God intervenes when we are facing depression. 

Our host clarifies that just because someone is seeking help through a healthcare professional or taking medication to fight depression doesn’t mean God is not involved. Then, our host takes us to 1 Kings 19—a blunt account of the prophet Elijah overwhelmed by a deep depression.

What happens in that chapter is a clear example of how God helps us when facing depression. God didn’t rebuke Elijah. God listened to him, provided him comfort, sustenance, and rest, and then gave him a job. Listen to this episode to hear our host sharing how God helped him in a similar way. 

Our host also shares an impactful testimony from a couple who went through a dire situation, one of them spending 42 days in the hospital (in and out of comas), and how they both experienced miraculous strength, healing, and the lifting power of God through the ordeal. Listen to this episode and be encouraged.
