Depression in the Bible Job,
Jeremiah all had incredible, miraculous relationships with the Lord, but when what they expected to happen after their obedience to Him didn't happen-each expressed in mourning that they'd be better off dead or never born. WOW.
What about JESUS? Isaiah says that Jesus was a man familiar with grief too, but the difference is that Jesus trusted in the Father's plan. He had pure HOPE that God's goodness would prevail. And as we all know Jesus was restored to GLORY and redemption won over grief as a result of Him trusting and walking through God's purpose for the pain. If you suffer with depression, you need to know that God's word calls that a spirit of heaviness. It's a demon. When grief comes we all have a choice to either trust in the God of Hope, or partner with a spirit of heaviness. Maybe you were going along just fine and something unexpected happened that caused you suffering when you expected only happiness. Or maybe your life just hasn't turned out as expected and you feel like a failure as a result. Enter disappointment, that led to grief, that gave way to deferred hope that made your heart sick with a spirit of heaviness. Whatever the case-biblically, your depression is born out of a wrongful reaction to unmet expecations and/or life's disappointments. Here is how to get free... FREEDOM... It's time to rewind and undo that partnership you made with that evil spirit of heaviness and get back on the path to God's full glory and redemption for your life. Ask Holy Spirit to show you where you first partnered with that demonic spirit. What disappointent in your life gave way to this? When He brings it to mind first forgive everyone involved. Just say it outloud, "I choose to forgive so and so for...." Don't forget to include yourself if this forgivenss. Forgive yourself for past sin, bad choices, etc. Once all fogiveness has been released before the Father in Jesus, it is time to repent. Repent for the idolotry of making yourself your own god by hanging onto what you wanted for your life instead of trusting in God and His plan and purpose for you. As well as for not trusting in His redemption of what the enemy did to you if that pertains. Now break your agreement with all demonic spirits of heaviness and cast them out and off of your life. "I repent for partnering with satan in my grief instead of trusting in you Yaweh! And I break all agreements, spoken and unspoken, that I made with him and his unholy spirits in my life! I command all spirits of heaviness and their partners off and out of me, my life and my generations right now and forever in Jesus's Holy name! Go to where Jesus tells you to go." Filling up with GOOD
Now it's time to FILL UP! Ask Holy Spirit to fill you up with His fruits of JOY and PEACE to overflowing in Jesus's name. Surrender to the Lord in every way! Lift your hands and let Him fill you. Breathe Him in and just enjoy the moment in His presence as long as you can. Then rise up renewed and forever FREE! The next time grief or disappointment comes you will be armed with a trust and HOPE for God's plan for your life. Amen.
