Freedom From Depression

"I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me up and set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand."

Psalm 40:1-2

What is depression?

Depression can be clinically diagnosed as a severe mood disorder. This generally affects how one thinks and behaves throughout the day. It doesn't have to necessarily be a long-term thing; depression can last seconds. We must be quick to recognize it.

Some signs and symptoms may include:

  • Hopelessness
  • Irritability
  • Loss of interest or pleasure
  • "Emptiness" feeling
  • Bodily aches and pains/cramps
  • Less energy or fatigue
  • Sleeplessness or oversleeping
  • Appetite-loss or overeating
  • Suicidal thoughts

*This ministry is not clinically licensed to diagnose anyone. Please seek proper diagnosis from a licensed doctor or clinician.*

What does God say about depression?

Place your hope in God.

Whenever you feel depressed, God wants you to put your trust and faith in Him. He will supply you with joy for your sadness, strength for your weekness, and healing for your pain.

The Joy of the Lord is your strength.

Keep your focus on God and He will supply every need. If you need joy, just ask Him. If you still don't feel anything after asking, don't be discouraged. Simply try some "spiritual exercises" to further prepare your heart for the Lord to work in you such as:

  • Just say "Jesus." Repeat the Lord's Name over and over to yourself. There is power in His name and His name always brings joy.
  • Count your blessings. Make a list of every good thing you have in your life. (E.g. Your good health, your family, your home, having a car (maybe two), your marriage, your job, etc.)

We are Spirit, mind and body.

It's so important to remember that our body, mind, and spirit are connected. We function successfully when all three components of our being flourish and are in good health. Sometimes depression sinks into our hearts when our bodies aren't properly nourished. That is an easy fix. Change your diet, exercise more, and think more positive thoughts. God cares about the conditions of our bodies. We serve as the temple for His Holy Spirit.
