How to destroy depression through Praise. This is how you will conquer depression with Praise!
Are you suffering from depression?
How has it affected your life today?
Is your life being driven downhill to a feeling of zero balance ? And did you know that you were following a path of destruction?
Nothing was meaningful to you in this world anymore, is that so?
There is nothing interesting in this world that motivates your life, is it true? Do you have any taste for anything in your life and about life?
How do you see yourself? How do you see your family? How do you see your marriage? How do you feel towards your family and those around you?
Are you covering your head in shame, in pain and in hopelessness? Or are you guilty?
Are you physically sick or spiritually sick? Are you losing your appetite and losing weight?
Are you becoming angrier than before or are you becoming lonelier and have become irritable?
Are you physically dead? Are you still breathing? Yes you are!
You should thank God that you are still breathing, like any normal and successful person on earth. And that is a miracle !
So why are you depressed? Did you check with your doctor and he scrambled everywhere for a possible treatment only to discover you are mentally sick not physically but in your soul? And this has affected the way you think and behave and live a life that is miserable to yourself?
Did you have the guts to ask yourself the root of all your depressions? the root of all your pain and misery? And how to overcome it?
You seem to think that everything has turned its way against you? You seem to think that everything has crippled your motivations from living a normal life? A life of success and prosperity?
Today, tell yourself, I maybe down but not out! I am not dead. I am still a living soul.
Let me ask you a question. In misery and depression, did you ever utter a word of thanksgiving to God in order to uplift your soul? If not then let me give an antidote for your soul. Something that is a killer blow to the root of all your depression, and that is PRAISE !
What is Praise?
Praise is simply commending and glorifying God. To glorify is to bestow honour, praise or admiration unto Him alone. Psalm 106:1
Praise the Lord, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever. Hebrews 13:15
By Him, therefore, let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His Name. Praise becomes a sacrifice when you offer your praise to God because He deserves it. In the midst of your depression, just open your mouth and start praising God, not because of who you are but because of who He is.The promises of God are powerful when you embrace them in your praise and worship. The shackles of depression will fall off, when you begin to open your mouth and start praising God in the midst of your depression.
When Are We To Praise God?
God is worthy of all our praises all day, everyday. Psalm 34:1 I will extol the Lord at all times, His praise will always be on my lips. No matter what you do or where you are, when you are down or happy and regardless of your circumstances, praise Adonai at all times and you will be delivered and blessed. Rise up and experience the power of praise and worship. Depression would not have gripped you if you had received salvation in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) and if you had known the power of praise and worship. As depression is demonic in nature, the word of God says, we are to praise God at all times. Depression will not have its way into your life if you are offering yourself as a living sacrifice by praising God.
How are we to praise God?
God desires that we must worship Him in truth and in spirit.The instruments we play combined with our voices are all but an expression of thanksgiving, honour and reverence for Yah Elohim. And our spirit beings when being burned by the Holy Spirit and fire, are transformed outwards through the power of praise and worship and they burn all the desires of the flesh in us. Our spirits are invisible hence, God is Spirit and requires us to worship Him in truth and in spirit.
Your mouth is the key weapon to attack the enemy through praise and worship. Your tongue holds the power of death and life so express the power of God in you as what comes from the mouth comes from the heart. Praises and worship are the word of God and by unleashing the word of God, you are tormenting the devil.
Why Are We To Praise God?
God Adonai is the Creator of music for His glory. He is the source of life. He created us in His image and likeness. He deserves to be praised. For so long being in depression, you overlooked this fact about yourself as someone bearing the image of the Father. Instead you bowed yourself through your own selfish desires and submitted yourself to the thief who stole your authority and concealed it with your own excuses of blaming yourself, your own family and those around you as day by day you were tormented by all these lies which Satan disguised upon your life. But the fact of the matter is that God was and is and will still be God forever and ever. Therefore, you as a created being, you must praise and worship Him alone and all those oppressors of your life will flee when you rise up from the midst of your depressions and start praising God
