God Our Sustainer – S3-DE5

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Psalm 143:7-9 (NLT), says: 

“Come quickly, LORD, and answer me, for my depression deepens. Don’t turn away from me, or I will die.  

Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you.  

Rescue me from my enemies, LORD; I run to you to hide me.” 

Psalm 143:7-9 (NLT) 


David was like many of us who have experienced a deep depression and begun to lose hope. You realize you need help when those constant drowning thoughts flood your mind of everything hopeless. 

So, David expressed his need for God’s help for direction and protection. He wasn’t ashamed to admit he’d come to the end of his rope. It was at that moment David remembered he had an ever-present HELP in Almighty God. Besides, God had done it before, and surely He could do it again. 

God is a sustainer! 

God had upheld David before, and by reaching out to God again in prayer, David found the HAND of God to lift him up again. 

God is a sustainer! 

God has the power to restructure, redirect, and rescue you from troubling thoughts that would lead you into a deep ocean of depression.  

I know from experience all too well the gasp for that last breath just before you go under. BUT God will reach out HIS hand and bring you high above the watery grave of your thoughts.  

It is HIS Word that reminds you that He is with you in trouble to deliver you. 

In Psalm 46:1-3, there are promises that ‘God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.’ We do not have to fear the greatest earthquakes of life, or the mountain of worry that falls upon us, or the roaring rush of the ocean waters.

As believers in Jesus Christ, we are safe in God. And when we need help, we shouldn’t hesitate to ask.  


Beloved, don’t lose hope, seek God, and trust that no matter where you are, you are not hidden from HIS glorious love and grace. And no enemy can snatch you out of HIS HAND

Thus, be encouraged in the Word of God that saysweeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning. 

Let’s Pray… 

Father God,  

We come to YOU in the name of JESUS. We thank YOU for your love and kindness. We thank YOU for your gift of grace that covers our lives.  

Father God, we thank YOU that your Word promises us that we do not have to fear because YOU are with us. We thank YOU for strengthening us through our difficulties. We thank YOU that helping us is your good pleasure. 

LORD GOD, we are thankful that YOU, God, hold us steady while keeping a firm grip on us. God, YOU won’t let us go. Your love, your grace, your word, and your faithfulness sustain us.  

Father God, I come against the spirit of depression and I bind that spirit of depression by the authority of YOUR WORD in Matthew 18:18, which says “whatever I bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever I loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. So, in the Name of Jesus, I loose your people from the bondage of the spirit of depression in the POWER of Jesus’ Name.  

I bind up those principalities, powers, and rulers of the darkness in high places, in the Name of Jesus. I declare the Mind of Christ be in your people, that our thoughts line up with your Word and our lives reveal the transformation. 

Let this be in Jesus’ GREAT Name—I declare it done today that YOU, Heavenly Father, be glorified in the SON. Amen, Amen, Amen! 

Grace and Peace to You! Have Faith in Jesus!  

And remember Jesus Is LORD!!! 

{Prayer Scriptures: Isaiah 41:10, Matthew 18:18, Philippians 2:5-11, Ephesians 6:12-13}
