Seeds of Destiny 10th August 2018: The Cure for Depression by Dr. Paul Enenche

(FROM AUGUST 2018 SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)

FRIDAY 10TH AUGUST, 2018

TOPIC: The Cure for Depression

SCRIPTURE: To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified. Isaiah 61:3

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Living in one room apartment with joy is better than living in a duplex with depression.

MESSAGE: Depression is a long-term state of mind characterised with extreme unhappiness and inability to visualize a happy future. It is a powerfully negative mood that interferes with daily life. Depression is more than sadness. Depressed people feel sad, empty, despondent, disinterested and lethargic. That shall never be your portion in Jesus’ Name.

Depression is a major destroyer of life and destiny. It is a major sponsor of oppression. Depression opens the door for oppression because satan is at work where depression is. Depression is doorway to the destruction of destiny. People commit suicide not when they are excited but when they are depressed.

Depression also frustrates discretion; it affects reasoning. Whenever a man is depressed, his reasoning pathways are blocked. He lacks the capacity to find solution; he is too depressed to think about a way out because depression blocks the mind.

Having seen the dangers of depression, what then is the cure for depression?

1. Fight depression
Fight the spirit of heaviness; fight depression (Isaiah 61:3).Refuse to be depressed despite the prevailing circumstance. Let God’s Word fuel your joy – Jeremiah 15:16.

2. Rejoice in the Lord
Rejoice when the devil wants you to cry; sing when he wants you to mourn and dance when he wants you to lie down. Do the opposite of what the devil wants from you, and he will run mad (Philippians 4:4).

3. Watch your environment
If you do not want to be depressed, watch your environment. There are depression-provoking pictures you should avoid and houses you may have to move out from in order to maintain your joy in the Lord. Living in a room apartment with joy is better than living in a duplex with depression.

Beloved, you must guard your joy with jealousy; avoid depression.

Remember this: Living in one room apartment with joy is better than living in a duplex with depression.
