God promises to be close to the brokenhearted and to be our source of power, courage and wisdom. You may feel like your situation is hopeless. You may go dragging into Church on Sunday morning saying, “Dear God, you don’t know the trouble I have seen. I have been through the fire Oh, dear God, did the devil visit our house this week!” But you are still here. You made it. And now it is recovery time! Recovery means you get everything back that was stolen from you. It means you lay hold upon; retake, regain; and obtain possession of everything that rightfully belongs to you. It is recovery time.
The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue every time.”~Psalms 34:19
Throughout the Word of God, after God’s people have experienced a season of refreshing, then comes their recovery, next comes their restoration, then comes the harvest for which they had been believing God.
Ask yourself right now, “How badly do I want recovery in my life? How badly do I want freedom from depression and oppression?” If you want it badly enough, then get your spiritual life right. Determine right now that you are going to press into God. Devote more time to fellowship, prayer and in His Word. Completely surrender your will to His. Don’t sit back and watch it happen to everyone else. Get in on it. Get out of your boat of depression, and get out on the water of refreshing.
Arise from this depression that has kept you back and kept you down. It is time to arise to new life. It is refreshing time in your life. It is restoration time. It is reviving time. It is recovery time. God does not want you to miss out on what He has planned for you. Be determined in Jesus’ name that you are going to get right in the midst of it.
