The foundation for depression occurred when guilt was hidden in the soul. We must be careful, though, not to draw the wrong conclusion about our sin. God wants us to notice how bad we feel consequence to recognize that perhaps we have done something that has offended Him. The Spirit's conviction leads us to the cross where healing can be found. There is a second level of confession and repentance. This is where we acknowledge the truth about God and His ways.

In one sense, these two stages are the same. They are different in that one leads to acknowledging sin while the other is recognizing the truth. Notice how he states the powerful truth of God's holiness. True confession must not focus on self but extend itself by confessing what is true, good and holy.

Yes, we must confess our sinfulness, but our thoughts do not remain there. Confession will naturally move into prayer. This is our fourth step of the cycle of deliverance for depression.

Confession has to become prayer. We need to proclaim the truth about our sin, God's forgiveness through Jesus, God's holiness, but we also want to state the person God has made us to be. The Lord lives in us. He is holy and lives out His love and righteousness through our lives. Or just take the fruit of the Holy Spirit, and tell the Lord how you want Him to develop these in your lives. Actively seek God to develop these things in your life especially where you have found failure.

Do you see the different mindset here? Instead of resigning to defeat and self-pity, you are seeking God's grace to do those things which are good and delightful before Him. Dear Lord, I thank you for your love. I don't feel your love but I know you are there constantly caring for me. You care for me even more than I do at this moment. Please forgive me for giving up on caring for my husband. I shouldn't be so mad at him. Even if he did wrong, which he has, you have told me to be quiet of heart and kindly submit to him.

The Cycle of Deliverance for Depression

I was more like a roaring lion. This is so wrong of me. I have given up on our marriage but today I am welcoming your help in my life and our marriage. Things look so bleak, partly through what I have done. But you are a mighty God who does wonders. Forgive me through the blood of Christ. Strengthen me to be that woman you called me to be. Instead of giving into a spirit of defeat, I am stepping into the truth of your light.

May your Name be glorified even in my life and marriage. In Jesus Name I pray, Amen. Although some people stay away from reading prayers, sometimes they can help break us from a self-focused spirit. Use and adapt it!

Depression worsens each time we feel overwhelmed. We feel overwhelmed by being reminded of those things which we have neglected to do or things wrongly done. As long as the laundry pile remains high, you will easily be discouraged. Your solution in part is to simply do one or two loads a day. Get someone to keep you accountable. Ask God for help. If you feel that doing what you have neglected is too much you have neglected much , start somewhere.

It might be that you will brush your hair, get dressed and make breakfast for everyone. Perhaps you feel going to work would be too much, if possible try to go in for several hours. If that does not work out, do some things around home. It helps to talk to someone that will help you schedule what you should do each day. This schedule helps some people live by that schedule rather than their feelings. It presents a goal for each day which they think by God's grace they can do.

Do a bit more each day.

There is no magic here but just start doing what one had stopped can go a long ways in revealing that one's former conclusion was not true. You can do somethings. And if you can do some things, then the evil one is perhaps wrong on other things he whispered into your mind. So step by step you pray the truth of what you should be and walk in that pathway.

There are many things that can be said in summary, perhaps too many. The Cycle of Deliverance for Depression is a summary in and of itself. But let me just list some more general points here to keep you focused. Remember that the Lord has made you an overcomer! He wants you to testify to His greatness. As you learn these truths, God will bring others who have similar needs into your life.

You can share what He has done in your life and how. By first telling about your own life, they know you are not just bragging or emptily speaking about religion. You are telling about the power of the Gospel! This concludes lesson 9 on Overcoming Depression: Since the issues surrounding depression go deep into the heart, we encourage you to take advantage of the exercises supplied with this lesson. They will challenge you to further examine your own life as part of the learning process. Consider going to our resource center to have all the materials and much more in one place including powerpoints.

I deemed myself a failure as a wife, a mother, and a Christian. Now, it seemed, I was a failure as a psychiatric patient, as well. Refractory depression felt like a death sentence. My doctor had given me excellent medical treatment over the years, but I began to realize that while those in the mental health profession had done all they could to treat my body and mind by treating my brain chemistry and emotions , a key element of my being had never really been considered: Berys was unlike any counselor or therapist I had ever spoken to.

He revealed much to me.

Deliverance from Depression by David P Vandagriff, G G Vandagriff and Greg Vandagriff

I learned that the roots of my depression were not biochemical or emotional, as I had assumed, but spiritual. I discovered many lies I had believed my entire life, which greatly affected my personality and influenced the way I had chosen to live. One of the most destructive untruths was that I was not good enough.

As a young child I began to feel that I was somehow flawed, substandard, inferior.

I lived my life trying to prevent others from discovering how worthless I really was. Lacking a healthy sense of my own value, I became dependent on the approval of those around me to make me feel good about myself, earning their praise through performing, people pleasing, and perfectionism. It became a costly addiction.

He told me that I was not the worthless person I had always believed I was. Sharon Fawcett was the handiwork of the Creator of the universe, made in His image. My work was of no consequence. My achievements did not matter. What I did or who I was did not determine my worth— whose I was did. I was a beloved child of the King! Believing this truth would transform me. No longer would I have to strive for the approval of others. I was free to discover His purpose for my life.

Prior to beginning Christian counseling, I had lost almost all hope of ever getting well and believed that my days on earth were nearing an end. God fulfilled His promise. Within three months of my initial meeting with the Christian counselor, my depression was gone. I never returned to the psychiatric ward, never had another electroconvulsive treatment, and I no longer needed medication, or the care of a psychiatrist.

Six years have passed and I remain free! At one time I believed depression was the end of life for me; I now see that it was the beginning of a new, glorious life. My despondency caused me to withdraw from the world around me and offered a rare opportunity to become intimately acquainted with myself. Desperation provided the motivation required to delve into areas of my being that had never been explored, and to make some vital changes within.

Although depression is not something that I would have chosen for myself, I am now grateful for the blessings I reaped because of it: Through depression, I was rescued from a life lived for the wrong purpose, an exhausting existence in a dry, harsh territory and delivered to a new land, blooming with joy and watered by peace. My perspective on suffering has changed.

While unpleasant, I know that pain serves a purpose in the life of a Christian. I am also keenly aware that while our difficulties may seem insurmountable at times, there is nothing that God cannot do, and nothing He cannot use for our good.
