THEME : DEPRESSION IS DEADLY!
A merry heart maketh a cheerful
countenance: but by sorrow of the
heart the spirit is broken.
Read: Philippians 4:4-7
4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and
again I say, Rejoice.
5 Let your moderation be known
unto all men. The Lord is at hand.
6 Be careful for nothing; but in
every thing by prayer and
supplication with thanksgiving let
your requests be made known
7 And the peace of God, which
passeth all understanding, shall
keep your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR : JOSHUA
23-24 and JOB 38:25-28
Many people have lost contact with
Heaven because of depression.
There is no way you can carry out
the divine commission of the Lord
with a depressed spirit. It is the
joy of the Lord that should rule
your heart. There is a pit you must
avoid in life; it is the pit of
depression. You must avoid this pit
because it kills the spirit-man
gradually. If you are sorrowful and
depressed for too long over the
problems of life, you will destroy
yourself. Depression can deaden
your marrow, and when this
happens, death is at the corner.
Every day and in every way, let the
joy of the Lord continue to be your
strength. With the joy of God, you
can always confront the problems
of life, giving thanks to the Lord in
every situation and at all times.
Always take your problems to the
Lord in prayer and leave
everything at the feet of Jesus. Tell
the Lord your heartaches and all
your sorrows; you can be sure He
will meet you at the very point of
your needs. Don’t bottle up your
issues, this will lead to depression.
God is your Creator and He has
the right solutions to all the
problems of life. Just pray and
never panic. There are many
people who are hypertensive
today, and are in a very poor state
of health because of depression
and sorrows. Always learn how to
be joyful; never give room for
anyone to sentence you to the
prison of sorrow. There are people
who experience happiness, but
God wants you to continue to draw
your joy from Him. Happiness
comes when something good
happens to people. Joy however is
like a well of water that springs
forth naturally even when nothing
has happened. Rejoice in the Lord
because you are a new creature
and because of the hope you have
in Christ Jesus.
The Lord can turn your captivity to
freedom and break every limitation
on your way. Come out of your
sorrow and proclaim the joy of the
Lord. The Lord can put an end to
poverty and stagnation in your life.
It does not matter the years you
have spent under the grip of the
enemy. What matters is that the
Lord is set to do wonderful things
in your life. Everything that has
been responsible for sorrow,
shame and reproach in your life is
being turned to a testimony.
Through the power of God, every
shame can be turned to glory and
every sorrow can be turned to joy.
Notwithstanding the arrows shot
by the enemy, the Lord will save,
deliver and totally set free all
those who are under the affliction
of depression. Receive your
deliverance today in Jesus’ Name.
Father, deliver me from every
satanic depression in Jesus’ Name.
