Dejection. What is it? It is depression. Grief. Sadness. Sorrow. When we try to find the source of depression, we realize it’s all about lust. You have either satisfied a lust or haven’t. Lust essentially means you must have it at once and you’re willing to do what it takes to get it.
When we’re talking about spiritual lust, we turn to God to answer our problems instantly. We’re now demanding things from our Provider. As a result, we begin to get dejected and depressed. This is wrong in His eyes. It took me a while to grasp this concept and this daily devotional passage.
And maybe I’m wrong.
But we must not find an issue in our lives, almost unconquerable or life-changing events to turn to Him. He lives in everyday things, people, and family. We must be faithful and happy each day He’s gifted us on this Earth. It’s so hard to dwell on the past, for all the mistakes and regrets, but we must always turn to Him. No loneliness, no emptiness. If you put all your effort into having a relationship with God, He will provide for you whatever is missing in your life.
We must take that leap of faith and trust in Him. I promise you won’t regret it!
