Proverbs 15:13

Almost everyone at one time or another experiences a period of sadness. Most people get over it with a little time. But for some people, the sadness continues. One of the signs that accompany depression is having distrust of God, resentment of others, finding it difficult in making decisions, guilt, inactivity, sleeplessness or oversleeping, not eating or overeating, doubting, complaining, worrying, and hopelessness, as though you are in an inescapable pit. However, there is hope for depression because you have the ability to conquer and overcome depression through God’s love.

Dwelling on an offense for too long can cause bitterness, which in turn can lead to depression. The moment you permit anger to linger when someone offends you, you are on your way into depression. Depression is a mental health disorder characterised by persistently depressed mood or loss of interest in activities, causing significant impairment in daily life. It  is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. Depression is an extreme degree of sadness and it is unhealthy; it could open the door of your life to devils and all kinds of diseases. It quenches the Spirit, creates heaviness of the heart, destabilises and slows spiritual growth, and eventually causes you to work out of the will of God. However, it is not God’s will for you to be depressed and walk in bitterness. There is no way you can carry out the divine commission of the Lord with a depressed spirit. It is the joy of the Lord that should rule your heart. If you are sorrowful and depressed for too long over the problems of life, you will destroy yourself. Depression can deaden your marrow, and when this happens, death is at the corner. Every day and in every way, let the joy of the Lord continue to be your strength. With the joy of the Lord, you can confront the problems of life, giving thanks to the Lord in every situation and at all times. Always take your problems to the Lord in prayer and leave everything at the feet of Jesus. God is your creator and He has the right solutions to all the problems of life.
