FIGHT depression with the Word of God! Depression is a spirit, and spirits only respond to and are affected by things of the spirit.
The Word of God is spirit. Jesus said the words he speaks are spirit and they are life, according to John 6:63.
God is a spirit according to John 4:24. In John 1:1 it says: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” If the Word was God and God is a spirit and he is his Word, then it is crystal clear that the Word is the spirit of God.
Now you must retrieve from the spirit of God which is his Word and begin to speak to the spirits of depression with the Word of God.
For example, the spirit of depression likes to highlight your flaws and shortcomings. This of course would be those voices in your head always distributing negative thoughts and giving you every reason to be depressed.
It is time for you to relinquish the victim role and begin speaking the Word of God. God has given me dominion over the works of His hands and has placed all things under my feet, including you spirit of depression, according to Psalm 8:6.
I speak the Word of God over me which is the spirit of God that says: “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trust in thee.” (Isaiah 26:3)
I receive this Word, I bind my mind, body and soul to this Word in the name of Jesus Christ!
I shall overcome depression, simply because the Word of God clearly says that I can do all things through Christ that strengthen me according to the precious spirit of the Lord which is his Word according to Philippians 4:13.
Finally, I am in covenant with the Word of God that says to me that God has given me beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. (Isaiah 61:3)
To those suffering from depression who are reading this, I pray that God reinforces the angels whom He has given charge over you and that they will continue to keep you fighting against the spirit of depression. (Psalm 91:11-12)
Finally Father, because your Word cannot return unto you without accomplishing what it was sent out to do, we therefore wait in great expectation on the manifestation of the promises of your Holy Word, in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen!
