Matt. 22:37-39, Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’”
When we LOVE God first and foremost, then we know who we are in Christ!
When we KNOW who we are in Christ, then we understand that we are not weak, but we are strong. We are children of the MOST HIGH GOD! We are CONQUERERS, VICTORS, BLESSED, PURPOSED, HEALED IN OUR SPIRITS, SOUL, AND BODIES!
When we KNOW who we are in Christ, then we will LOVE OTHERS! When we know we are loved by our Father, and the more we spend time with Him, the more we become like Him. GOD IS LOVE – 1 John 4:8.
DEPRESSION IS SO DIABOLICAL BECAUSE IT DETACHES US FROM OUR CALLING AND DESTINY BY GETTING US TO LOATHE OURSELVES, THEREFORE WE DO NOT, AND WILL NOT LOVE OTHERS!
If you do not love yourself, you cannot love others!
HERE IS THE PROOF THAT DEPRESSION IS NEVER FROM GOD. THE BY-PRODUCT OF DEPRESSION DISENGAGES PEOPLE FROM LOVING OTHERS.
- Social withdrawal is common
- Emotional sadness and frequent crying spells are common
- Self-esteem and self-confidence are low
- Loss of personality – a sense that our sense of humor has left
- Over-sensitive emotionally
- Desire to GIVE UP
- Sense that nothing is worth it
- NO HOPE
ALL OF THESE MANIFESTIONS OF DEPRESSION STOP YOU FROM REACHING OUT WITH THE LOVE OF JESUS.
THEY ENTOMB YOU!
Ps. 42:5, Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him For the help of His countenance.
SHOUT – Depression is NEVER from God the Father and I will not allow it in my life, in Jesus’ name!!
