Sadly, many are suffering from depression. Fortunately, for them there’s an answer according to a recent pharmaceutical commercial for depression sufferers. During the mini-series commercial, it was advertised depression suffers can suppress their periods of sadness at work or with family and friends with their new prescription drug.
THE MINISERIES COMMERCIALS THAT PROMISE THE MOON
I found the commercial very ironic to the oppression and deception the enemy does to people’s minds. The commercial portrays this twisted concoction of metal lingering over the actor’s heads while depressed. However, after taking the prescription drugs changes begin to occur and the depression sufferer looks better and begins to function back at work or with family. Little does the person know the twisted metal concoction is still there but this time it’s hiding behind their back. The Bible says in Hosea 4:6, “My people perish for lack of knowledge”.
Unfortunately, I was a perishing person because I was not knowledgeable regarding the adversary of my soul. The truth is generational curses affected my family line for generations alcohol, depression, suicide and the like gripped my life and mind. Fear was the main culprit but the symptoms of loneliness, rejection, failure, guilt, shame condemnation, anxieties, etc., kept me in the dark. I was depressed at times on and off most of my life and I got to a point where clinical psychologists attempted to prescribe me drugs to combat my bouts of depression. My greatest fear would be side affects so I opted not to ever take them. For some reason, deep down inside I knew there must have been something else that could help me. I sought to exchange time with counselors that could just listen to my problems and help me in some capacity. Or I could take a mood supplement that could help only temporarily for a season.
MY DIVINE APPOINTMENT
However, one day something would begin to change me from the inside out. Who in the world is the Godhead person of the Holy Spirit and His spiritual baptism? Jesus began to inform the disciples about a mysterious Helper and He explains, “ the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you” John 14:17-18. I was perishing for lack of knowledge, my mind was sick, my body was sick, and my soul was sick. Until Holy Spirit met me during a women’s spiritual conference, He met me right where I was at. It was the most divine experience. Even still, I didn’t know what had happened to me. I was weak in the knees, I received my divine prayer language (speaking in tongues) and I felt a joy come over me like never before.
Shortly afterwards, I developed a hunger like never before for the Word of God, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it” John 1:1-5. What do people not comprehend? The darkness. What is darkness in my definition it’s the stronghold of the mind. Who brings this darkness? One name and one name only, “satan” that serpent of old, “So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” Revelation 12:9. He would deceive the whole world in thinking a mini series commercial promising temporary healing through prescription drugs would solve their mental depression. It would only be a band-aide and according to the image of the commercial they still had the mental concoction on their back. Yes, satan will stay right there and all his demon spirits oppressing you with strongholds which are really just deeply rooted lies.
I’M ONLY A COACH BUT IF I WE’RE A DOCTOR
If I we’re a doctor what would I prescribe to a mentally depressed patient? I would prescribe a double dose of God’s truth, prayer against spiritual blinded eyes and spiritual deaf ears and an incredible bedside manner of Holy Spirit. The one who will come along side you in power and might because the Word of God reveals to us Jesus would bring the life and light into a soul for their salvation. In addition, according to the scriptures angels spoke to the prophet Zechariah and declared, “So he (an angel) answered and said to me (Zechariah): “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: “Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord of hosts” Zechariah 4:6. Holy Spirit is going to come in this manner to help an afflicted soul to be delivered from demonic oppression through power and the anointing. The adversary of our soul would be defeated because the bully would be found out, exposed and cast out forever. He would never return unless the healed patient fails to remain submitted to God in His fullness of glory. We are called to take every thought captive or vain imagination,
“Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ” 2 Corinthians 10:5. There is hope and I address this to every depression sufferer, prescription drugs are just a temporary fix to the real underlying issues, a past trauma or an open door to sin in your life. What do you really need? Truth. If the darkness doesn’t flee than you will continue to stay under the thumb of the enemy. There are answers to your desperate search for the deep darkness and spiritual cloud over your head. I encourage you to reach out to me and I will partner with you and help you seek the truth because where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom and liberty.
