Depressed?

In our depression, we tend to over think and dwell on the negatives in our lives. We replay past hurts and run them over again in our minds on a loop that just keeps refreshing our pain and anguish. Philippians 4:8-9 tells us to think on the good things. Fill your mind with the positives and let go of the bad thoughts.

Keep a written list of all you have to be thankful for. While in the depressed state, you may find it hard to focus on the good amongst all your bad; but there are many blessings that you can be grateful for and they are what you should focus on. There are many who have verbal arguments with their spouse, but they can be thankful that their spouse is not physically violent, for example. 

We have not been abandoned by God, even when we feel like we are alone and without blessing. God is always there whether we feel him or not. Take heart in these scriptures and know that God is with you, beside you, whatever your trial or circumstance. You have only to meditate on these scriptures to know that you are never without Gods presence and protection. 

In closing, today’s church age that we live in seemingly is a “name it and claim it age” yet all of these people that are “naming it and claiming it” have no power with God. Since you the blessed believer have the Holy Ghost residing on the inside of you, you have the authority to “name it and claim it”. Depression must flee at the Name of Jesus. Claim victory over your problem and watch God continue to bless you with joy unspeakable. 

…….now clap your hands and give God a great hand clap of praise!
