3-Bible verses on how to overcome depression, according to the Bible
Refuse the lie of the enemy.
Obey God, dwell on good things.
Seek God’s revelation.
1. Refuse the lie
Saying “I am depressed” is agreeing to the enemy’s lies. Satan wants to destroy you; he’s the “father of lies” who whispers it’s hopeless (John 8:44). Jesus says the opposite; He will never forsake you. In fact, Jesus rebuked Satan’s lies, and so should you in His name. (Luke 4)
“… be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.“
→ Speak Life: Powerful words we should declare to our family.
2. Obey God, “Dwell what is good”
God says, “Do not grieve (Nehemiah 8:10),” “Do not be anxious (Philippians 4:6-7), “Do not despise discipline… the Lord disciplines those he loves…” (Provebers 3:11-12). These are not suggestions, but command. Don’t dwell on negativity.
“Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable—if there is any moral excellence and if there is any praise—dwell on these things.”

Jesus prayed several times a day and often went to a quiet place to talk to God — so should we (Joshua 1:8). Faith grows by reading the Bible, and we bear fruit of joy when we abide in Jesus, the true vine. (Read John 15)
“Search me, God, and know my heart; Put me to the test and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there is any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way.“
