[Seeds of Destiny 28 February 2019 Devotional]
You have what it takes to deal with the battles of your life.
SCRIPTURE: And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beer-sheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there. 1 Kings 19:3
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You have what it takes to deal with the battles of your life.
Depression is a period of chronic unhappiness usually associated with low morale and inability to visualize a happy future.
It has been established that depression is the enemy of destiny; depression has killed many people. Whenever depression is at work in your life, its major assignment is to terminate your destiny and make you miserable and irrelevant in life.
This was a challenge in the life of Elijah. He called down fire from Heaven to devour the prophets of Baal, but became depressed because Jezebel threatened to kill him. This made Elijah to run away for his life.
The spirit of depression is a melancholic spirit that weighs a man down. Elijah had what it took to kill Jezebel but depression made him to run away. It was Elijah who anointed Elisha; Elisha in turn anointed Jehu, and Jehu killed Jezebel. So, the anointing to kill Jezebel originated from Elijah but he ran away from the same enemy he was anointed to slay.
God brought you into this world to tackle the very things you are running away from. If you allow yourself to be depressed and discouraged, you will begin to think that there is no need to live let alone confronting those things.
Beloved, stop running! Refuse to be depressed in life. You have what it takes to deal with the battles of your life. You have been anointed to slay what is pursuing you and you shall prevail in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: You have what it takes to deal with the battles of your life.
1.Do not allow depression to settle in your life.
2.Take note of the challenges you have been running away from and tackle them with the Word of God.
PRAYER: O Lord, I receive the grace to rise above every depressing situation in my life today, in Jesus’ Name.
