Rejoice Because of His Word
Prov 12:25 (NKJV) Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, but a good word makes it glad.
Glad: Heb. samah (saw-makh’) to brighten up, to cheer up, be glad, become joyful, be merry, to cause to rejoice.
Note: Negative emotions do to the heart what a heavy burden does to a person who carries it. That is the reason discouragement and depression are spoken of as being heavy burdens. It’s a descriptive term illustrating the condition of our hearts. How do we get rid of the heaviness in our hearts? This verse says a good word will make the heart glad.
The enemy cannot cause me to be depressed! I have God’s Word in my heart, and His word is GOOD! The Bible tells me what Jesus has done for me and it causes me to rejoice and be glad!
God bless you my friend,
