Hope for the depressed | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

While some people think that the depression faced by many can only be taken care of in the clinic, I think that they need to check the source of hope that I bring to you today. The one who can take away all the depression of anyone in a second and restore all that has been lost which brought the depression in the first place.

The Bible in the book of Isaiah 61:1 says, ‘The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound.’

Those were words from the prophet Isaiah and he was speaking forth the purpose of Jesus. It does show here that Depression is something that you cannot take care of with world things or even knowledge. He declares that the Spirit of God is upon him and has anointed him to preach good tidings. The Spirit of the Lord also anointed Him to heal the broken hearted (depressed). He’s also anointed to proclaim liberty to the captives (either held physically or by one bond or those held captive by depression.)

It therefore means that the solution to depression is not farfetched! We are clearly told that The Spirit of the Lord can pour anointing on you and once that happens, depression is taken away. Why is that? The Spirit of God is the Spirit of Joy. You can’t have the Holy Spirit working with you, anointing you and pouring power on you and still be depressed.

There may reasons for you to want to be depressed but then you remember that the joy of the Lord is your strength. Even the Bible says that righteousness, peace and JOY in the HOLY GHOST, that’s the Kingdom of God.

I have said repeatedly that I found my purpose in the book of Isaiah 50:4 which says, ‘The Lord GOD has given Me The tongue of the learned, That I should know how to speak A word in season to him who is weary (depressed, broken down, rejected, cast out, disqualified, discredited). He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear To hear as the learned.’

Can you see that? He deliberately gave me the tongue of the learned through His Holy Spirit just so that I can know what to say to the weary. While this may make sense to some people, it may not make sense to some others and that is understood.

The reason healing for depression from the word of God will be understood by some people is because they have come to the real light of the word of God. Some others cannot understand it because they have not come to the light.

You will recall the Bible says, ‘deep calleth unto the deep…’ in Psalm 42:7. So in times of depression, if you have the Spirit of God in you then the Holy Spirit has the deep in you that He can call unto. But when you don’t have God’s depth in you, there is no deep that the Holy Spirit of God will call unto.

It’s like having a cell phone and trying to reach out to someone who has a phone but has not SIM or number that you can call. There is no way you can reach such a person. I call on you today to put the SIM of life into yourself. You need to accept the Lord Jesus as your Lord and personal saviour. If you do, then He can pretty much help you through depression and also keep you away from it. He offers more joy than you can ever imagine.

Say ‘Lord Jesus, I am sorry for all the wrongs I have done. Pardon me for all the sins I have committed. I now believe that you are my saviour because you died for me on the cross of calvary. I also declare you as Lord because I will follow your leading from today. Please accept me into your fold. Help me never to turn back and let me per take of your everlasting joy. Please send your Holy Spirit to me now. Thank you because I am now Born Again. No more oppression from the devil and no more depression from wherever!’

If you sincerely said that short prayer I believe you got born again but you need to back that up with action. Look for a Bible believing church where the undiluted word of God is taught around you and join. Let me also tell you ahead that in your Christian race, LOOK ONLY unto Jesus, not unto man, the author and the finisher of your faith. See you in heaven, dear sister or brother when Jesus comes back for us (you and I), the saints.
