I’m standing in agreement with those who are seeking deliverance in their minds. What we need to always remember during a mental attack is that we have a choice. Never think that your without choice. When I went through depression after suffering from a miscarriage in 2009, I completely gave up on hope. My heart was heavy, I felt broken, and I had no peace. Every thought that came to mind was negative, the enemy wanted me to stay in that low place. Depression is nothing to play around with.
The longer I stayed there the worse I became. Satan began to have a field day in my mind, planting lies. There’s something wrong with me, it’s my fault, that I’d never be happy again, I don’t deserve to have what I’ve asked God for and that I would not be able to conceive again. I really started to believe this, I shed A LOT of tears because of my mental state. I hated that feeling , it was so dark and sad. I couldn’t function properly as a wife or a mother, my daughter was 4 years old at the time. Everyone was suffering around me because I wasn’t in the right place.
I want you to ask yourself, “What mental state am I in today”? Everyones trial is different, it could be a sickness your facing, doors closed in your face, broken relationships, loss of loved ones, condemnation, financial burdens, etc. For some it’s an everyday attack, for others it comes in waves. The most powerful thing you can do either way is to start asking God for help. Stop right now and just simply say, “LORD HELP ME”!! I didn’t always feel like praying, the misery didn’t leave immediately but I chose to go after God because I didn’t want to lose any more time. Everyday I got on my face and asked God for help and day by day I started to feel a release from that heaviness. A fresh and new start.
My cloudy vision began to clear and I saw where those dark thoughts were coming from, I was finally gaining spiritual strength to fight back. Taking the word literally for what it says, whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Anything that was opposite of the word of God concerning me is from the deceiver, PERIOD! I started Psalming Outloud, declaring what the word says concerning me and my future. I stopped asking why and started saying yes Lord, I trust You. All that I have and will every be is in His hands.
When I changed my confession, my mind started to change too and my faith was elevated. This is the first step toward true freedom in God. But you have to make a choice to fight and do it. I even started to ask God for a baby again. And God gave me double for my trouble. My cup is running over, and I spend more time laughing now than ever. Only God was able to come in and defeat depression. I couldn’t do it alone. If you realize at this moment that you have been suffering mentally and want to be free, let’s go to the Father and Psalm Outloud.
Father I realize that my help is in you. That my dominion is in the spirit. Forgive me for all the times I spent thinking defeat. I realize now that every low place is meant only for Satan. I am created to rise in You. So by your Holy Spirit I break every satanic attack that is designed to distract, torment, and steal my focus. That assassin that was sent to steal my peace, joy, and serenity, I see now…it’s all a lie. I decree and declare that my mind is anointed to think on things that are above and not below. I break and disarm all darkness related to condemnation, defeat, depression, sickness, sadness, brokenness and heaviness. I am walking in Your divine love and in heavenly places. Your goodness is meant to overwhelm me. Your patience is performing her perfect work in me. I am stable in every area of my life, there are no limitations on me. This is my era of acceleration, elevation, promotion, new doors, new keys, and enlightenment both spiritually and naturally. Every dream that was conceived in my heart I speak it into existence NOW! I wait on You and Your timing in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
