In this Ministry Minute video by Kenneth Copeland Ministries, respected minister and teacher Keith Moore tackles the question: Why is Depression Dangerous for Christians?
Perhaps you’ve experienced sadness and/or disappointment in your life. That’s to be expected. Everyone endures times when loved ones die, relationships end, jobs change, markets fluctuate or unfairness happens. The danger comes in when you allow that sadness or disappointment to simmer and evolve into depression, to take root in your heart and mind so that you can’t remember how blessed you are. If you are a Christian believer, you already have the answer to disappointment—Jesus. Watch this Ministry Minute video with Keith Moore, as he explains why depression is so dangerous.
Isaiah 53:4-5 says, “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”
Jesus paid the price for you to overcome every sorrow when He died on the cross and rose again. That doesn’t mean you won’t face sadness and disappointment, but it does mean that He made it so that you don’t have to succumb to them. You can stand strong in faith.
Why is depression dangerous for the Christian? It’s dangerous because it takes your eyes off of Jesus, His Word, and His promises and puts them onto your problems. Depression magnifies the difficulties in your life and diminishes God’s wonder working power in your mind. Watch this Ministry Minute video by Keith Moore and get the right perspective on depression. And if you need someone to stand in prayer with you for your healing from depression, call 1-817-852-6000 to speak with a KCM prayer minister or you can submit a prayer request online.
