“Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression,
But a good word makes it glad.” – Proverbs 12:25

How true it is that anxiety and worrying, cause depression, sadness, and grief. We must fight against such feeling knowing that they are not from God. But how do we fight? We must take in hand the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. The proverb says, “a good word makes it (the heart of man) glad.” The word of God is good and true. It is our surety, and our sword that cuts through the schemes of the devil.

We are to take the promises of God, preach them to ourselves and one another and defeat sins of depression and anxiety. The Word of truth proclaims that our God is Sovereign and Good, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” – Romans 8:28, and “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5. Thus we can say with boldness, “The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” Hebrews 13:6 or, “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31

May the truth strengthen us in our fight against sin. May we gain courage and joy as we trust in His promises. May His “good word” make us glad!

    Wow, what an easy choice: gladness over depression! Related to your proverb, Joey, I like Proverbs 4:23: “Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.” It’s great to understand that we keep our heart by using God’s good words to drive anxiety and every other form of disorder out.
