“Sir, things are getting out of hand, how do I get rid of this depression?”. You don’t get rid of depression, you simply press towards something else, something not depressing. The devil does not have the power to impose anything on us. However, our choices usually determine our mental and emotional state. The bible says “I will press towards the mark for the prize of the high calling of God, through Christ Jesus”. In other words, you cannot get the prize or blessing without reaching the set mark, and you cannot reach the set mark without pressing. If you are not pressing towards the set mark, then you would cheaply get oppressed by the devil. And the devil’s oppression is what leads to depression.
To press means to continue doing everything prescribed in order to get the blessings prepared. Continue in studying, praying, fasting, and “faithing”, until you receive the blessing or prize you need. Depression blames an external force for its condition. It is like when an athlete decides to sit on a race track because the other competitors took off before him. Who told you that your parents are the reason why you’ve not paid your school fees? After all, many young scholars sponsor themselves to school. Who told you the government is the reason why you don’t have a job? You really need to choose; because you are either in a pressing state or a depressing state. The moment you stop pressing, then you’d start depressing.
That’s how far we’d go on today’s Timely Note. But take these last words; NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS, KEEP PRESSING. THE PACE MAY BE SLOW, BUT YOU’D SOON REACH THE MARK, AND THEN THE PRIZE WILL BE RELEASED TO YOU. Have a most fruitful weekend, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don’t forget to “like” it. And if you really like it, please share it!
