Listening to the first lines of Jason Nelson’s song dominion and he goes like “depression, you have to flee, you no longer have dominion over me” and I couldn’t help but think of a lot of people that have had to battle with depression. You probably have gone through the feeling before without even knowing that it’s called “Depression”.

I can’t just help but think that depression has to do with “Deep-pressing-on a person”.  It’s good that English language gave it a name and that it exists in the dictionary, but in my own dictionary of words, I’d like to kick out depression. It doesn’t even exist! I can’t help but think that I have something personal against depression.

I really do have something against depression. Truly first impression matters and depression has never left even a good second impression on me. Depression is a thief of hope and joy and it knows that am not accusing it wrongly. Ask anyone that has ever being depressed and they would tell you. Depression robs you of God’s blessing, because it knows that Joy is the access to God’s blessings.

Isa 12:3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation

Fact about depression is that it is a thing of the mind and it doesn’t rob you without your permission. Asides the fact that depression robs you of your blessings; it also has its effect on your health. Depression has an ageing effect and hinders your spiritual growth.

Pro 17:22 A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

depressedTwo simple ways in which you can fight depression from the word of God;


Rule your spirit! As simple as this may sound if you don’t have a rule over your own spirit, then you can be easily tossed about by circumstances or situations.

Pro 25:28 He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.


Encourage yourself! Depression would always give you reasons to be downcast, but the only way to fight back is to also give it reasons why you shouldn’t be.

1Sa 30:6 And David was greatly distressed for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people were grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encourage himself in the LORD his God.

If you would just take your eyes off the things that seem to weigh you down and fix your eyes on Jesus, then you would realize that it wasn’t so big after all, just like David and Goliath. Even if you are not capable you serve a capable God.

I don’t know if this happens to you…but it happens to me a lot, I read a scripture and then the meaning may not sink in at that moment. I know I have being reading this particular scripture but the reality of this scripture dawned on me after quoting it to my cousin today.
I was feeling so wise after talking with my cousin and decided to add this at the end of my speech, “He that has an ear let him hear”, and then it actually dawned on me that everyone has an ear. Does it mean that the bible did not know what it was saying? Of course not! The bible was very specific about what it was saying!
Here is the truth not all that have ears can actually hear. Why is this? It takes an inner ear to hear what the spirit is saying.
Rev 3:6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
I mean God is Spirit and He says they that must worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. Permit me to paraphrase that “they that must hear him, must hear him in spirit and in truth”.ear
John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
It’s therefore necessary that you hear with your “inner ear” which is enabled by your “spirit man”. In communicating with God who is a spirit, your spirit man must be alive and sensitive to the Spirit of God. The more sensitive you are to the Spirit of God, the more open you are to receive and hear from God. Decide today, to listen to what Spirit has to say! Remember, it is not everyone that has an ear that can hear.
