Topic: The Dangers of Depression [Tuesday March 21, 2017]
Scripture: Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance. Psalm 42:5
Thought For The Day: If the devil wants you to cry; laugh. If he wants you to mourn; dance.
The spirit of depression is one of the deadliest enemies of destiny; it sponsors oppression and opens the door for satan to wreak havoc on a person’s life. Depression frustrates discretion and reasoning. Whenever a man is depressed, he cannot reason properly.
Depression almost destroyed the life of Elijah. After he successfully executed the prophets of Baal with fire from heaven, Jezebel threatened to take his life. Elijah became discouraged, depressed and even preferred to die (1 Kings 19:4).
Depression also decreases momentum. A depressed person is always tired; he sleeps tired and wakes up tired.
Medically, depression is a psychiatric condition. When a person agrees to sink into depression, he has surrendered his life for destruction.
Beloved, fight depression. Disengage yourself from every negative association that tends to depress you. If the devil wants you to cry; laugh. If he wants you to mourn; dance. Make up your mind to be joyous at all times because an enthusiastic man is energetically vibrant. He is a man who sees possibilities and believes that God is up to something positive in his life.
I decree your freedom from every form of depression in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: If the devil wants you to cry; laugh. If he wants you to mourn; dance.
1. Avoid the lifestyle of strife and competitive jealousy.
2. Pray for those who hurt you as you would pray for yourself.
Prayer: O LORD, I reject every spirit of depression. I live in the Joy of the Lord at all times in Jesus’ Name.
