Thanks Cherie for bringing this forward for thought for the saints. Depression can be a tactic of the enemy to take down the saints.
I just read a book called Power of the Blood by Bob Sorge and he spoke about the assault upon David because he loved to be with God in holy place. Here is what Bob said “Satan has three primary strategies to move the saints from the place of holiness: distraction, discouragement (leads to depression) and temptation” David held up to the first two but was taken down by the last. David repented eventually and was restored. The fight is against darkness and the Light will have His victory and restoration comes. The Word fights for us, we need to have it engrained in our heart and mind then Praise His Holy Name, because the enemy has to flee whenever the Lord God is present. Guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus. Depression is real but the Mighty Lord is the Overcomer.
Thanks for shedding a godly perspective on depression. It can be overwhelming at times. I’ve been reading in James how we will encounter trials and we need to consider it all joy that we face these trials. God is with us during these trials and doesn’t let the darkness overcome the light. He goes with us throughout our trials and the depression that we may face. Thanks be to God for this promise!!!!
