In economics, depression is a stage of the business cycle in which all economics activities are down. A prolong recession equals depression. That is, when recession persists for a long period of time, depression appears. Any government who doesn’t implement the right policies, will soon collapse with no time. So also, in the individuality type of depression, the victim is responsible to implement the right scriptural measures or else the individual will soon crumble with no time. Praise is the antidote to all human depressions.
In depression period, capitalists enjoy little or no profits and productivity becomes low. Unemployment and redundancy appear on the scene. Standard of living depreciates. Per capita income reduced. Poverty explodes. Frustration and confusion become the order of the day. Appreciation equals multiplication, or better still, appreciation is the pathway to recovery and boom.
However, as children of God, the economics situations of our countries have non-effect on us. We are not operating on our countries’ economics system but rather, we are operating on heavenly economics system. When you depend absolutely on God, the condition of the economics of your country becomes null and void against you.
As a matter of fact there Is no dry season in serving God. The realm of boom is our realm. The realm where things work. This is the stage which GOD has planned for us.
In God’s agenda we are not permitted to live as paupers. Abject poverty is a work of the enemy. It comes from the devil and not from God. “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in good health, even as thy soul prospereth.” 3.Jn.12
As a matter of fact, poverty is a sign of disobedience. Hear this: the gospel of Christ has zero tolerance for poverty. “The spirit of Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach to the poor.” Lk.4:18. First, to preach to the poor. If you are poor, you are a disappointment to Jesus.
You are not permitted to be depressed. Lack of obedience is the root of all depressions. As it affects the country at large likewise it affects an individual.
Take a look at most countries where they are not calling the name of the Lord. Their lands are in turmoils. All manners of unrests are taking place there. From terrorists attacks, to raping and kidnapping.
A peaceful nation is a “Godful’ nation. A peaceful individual is ‘Godful’ individual. A ‘Godful’ individual Is a wonderful fellow.
Commit yourself to the things of God and you will never be in a state of depression again. Let God employs you and unemployment will vanished in your life.
“Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat from the fruits of his doings.” Is 3:10. You are looking for a job, God will surprise you this week. You will be granted the divine ideas to become an employer of labour.
You can’t have access to the table and struggle for the crumbs. “But he answered and said, it is not meet to take children’s bread, and cast it to the dogs.” Mat.15:26. Earthly employers can use you and dump you, but God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Whether depression or recession, none of these stages is desirable. God does not bless group, You alone can walk out of depression without any political backing or a support from any government.“Behold I come quickly my rewards are with me to give every man according to his works shall be.” Rev.22:12.
Things might be bad in the country, things can’t be bad for you. Be joyful and don’t be fretful. You are not sad because things are bad, things are bad because you are sad. Praise is not a gift neither a talent, praise is a commandment. “Let everything that hath breath praise the lord.” PS 150:6. If you don’t appreciate God , you will depreciate with time. Praise is where God live. Appreciation provokes the manifestation of God’s presence. “But thou art holy, O thou that in inhabitest the praise of Israel.” PS.22:3
