Understand Where Depression Comes From

Posted on Posted in devotions

Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts. Zechariah 4:6 (KJV)

Depression comes as a result of taking on a load that you were not called to carry, and we all have done it. Taking responsibility to save your family, provide for your friends, save your marriage, protect your children, and to save everyone in the world, can create pressure that can damage your quality of life and rob you of your joy and peace. You were not called to be the ultimate provider, protector, way maker, savior, or deliverer of anyone, not even those you love—God is! You are not responsible to do for yourself or for anyone else what only God can do.

God will do the saving, the delivering, the protecting, the healing, the restoring, and the providing.The only thing required of you is to maintain sweet communion and fellowship with Him, and to obey and trust Him. His power handles the rest. Remember, it’s not by your might or by your power that things will happen for you. It’s by His Spirit.

Prayer: Dear Father, You are my God and You are the ultimate Savior, Restorer, Provider, and Protector in my life. I come against depression and anxiety right now in Jesus Name and I release all pressure and every weight that I have placed on myself. Forgive me Lord. Take control of my life. You are responsible for being my Almighty God and I am responsible to simply be Your daughter! That’s all You expect of me. In Jesus Name, Amen.
