The Cure for Depression


One of the biggest problems facing humanity is depression. When depression set in, inertia comes to play. Inertia is a period of lack of activity. Meaning that people facing depression lose interest in what they used to do enjoyably. Behind depression, there is a spirit of heaviness. How can you overcome the Spirit of heaviness?

Depression is a stealer of joy. The thief (the devil) comes to steal, kill and destroy. If you are not depressed, you cannot be oppressed. It’s a wicked strategy to first depress people to oppress them.

The cure for depression is praise. There are no frustrated praise warriors – there are frustrated prayer warriors.

There is divine visitation in praise. Abraham was giving God glory when God visited Sarah. I do not know what is believing in God for, probably you have waited for a long without any result. You’ve prayed and been to several mountains and yet there is nothing to show for it. It’s time to change your approach by adding praise to your efforts.

“He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God,”  (Romans.4:20).

Hannah fretted and worried. She blamed God. She blamed her husband but nothing happened. But when she stopped weeping and changed her sad countenance to joy. The miraculous exploded. If you think that your weeping will move God, that is another lie from the pit of hell. God is only moved by your faith. When Jesus cried, nothing happened (there was no miracle). For all those who came to Jesus with a cry, the first thing He did was to comfort them. Then followed a miracle.

Praising God in the midst of a hopeless situation is a sign of strong faith. Paul and Silas demonstrated strong faith by recourse to praise in the prison and God showed up (See Acts.16:25-34).

Multiplication is a product of appreciation. Nothing dies in the hands of a praise warrior (whether business or career). Praise expands people. The reason many people are small in life is a lack of praise (See Jeremiah.30:19).

“Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.”

“Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.” – Psalm.67:5-6

I will leave you with this scripture:

Awake, awake, Zion, clothe yourself with strength! Put on your garments of splendor, Jerusalem, the holy city. The uncircumcised and defiled will not enter you again.

Shake off your dust; rise up, sit enthroned, Jerusalem. Free yourself from the chains on your neck, Daughter Zion, now a captive.

For this is what the LORD says: “You were sold for nothing, and without money, you will be redeemed.Isaiah.52:1-3

This Will Take God


This will take God

When men got to their wits end you would heard them say, this will take God (what will take God will take praise). You’ve done all you could, now let God do what you couldn’t (what is impossible by men, is possible with God). With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible (Mathew.19:26).

Praise is what to do when you don’t know what to do. Praise is the spiritual medium through which you transfer your battle to God (when God take over, your battle is over). This battle is not yours, hold your peace and stand still. The children of Israel didn’t had to shoot an arrow before God stepped into their case (I can see God steeping into your case today).

And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab and mount seir which were come against Judah and they were smitten (2.Chro.20:22).

The night preceding the execution of Paul and Silas, they set up a platform of praise and a strange thing invaded the prison house; the foundation of the prison shook and their chain fell off (I can see every chain of darkness over your lives falling off this week in the mighty name of Jesus).

In the temple that Solomon built, as singers were singing and then suddenly, a cloud filled temple and the messenger could not preach. High praise will always provoke the release of God’s presence (A ‘Godful‘ atmosphere is a wonderful atmosphere).

Strange acts like the sick receiving their healings, the blind receiving their sights, the lame walking still happen in the middle of praise warfares.

We were all taught about prayer as a spiritual weapon but we were taught about praise as a subsidiary (praise is major in any major conflict).

In Nigeria where I live, a barren woman sang and danced in a church service; she danced herself to a set of twins. Exactly 9 months after the same month she danced the dance, she delivered double children.

Wait a minute, there was somebody who had a domestic fire accident but as he was singing and dancing in a typical praiseful service, there came an invincible guest who embraced him and all the scars of the accident was wiped clean.

Who is like unto thee O LORD, among the gods? Who is like unto thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders (Exodus.15:11).

Praise is where God lives. If you want to see God practically in action, get into praise.

God inhabits the praise of His people

Friend, loose yourself from the shackles of depression, shake your feet from the dust, put on the garment of praise and make the devil commits suicide.

As the Israelites were singing and celebrating the wall of Jericho had no choice than to come down flat and levelled up (I decree every barrier standing on your way to place of destiny will be levelled up in the name of Jesus).

When Pharaoh pursued the Israelites, he was perished in the red sea (The Pharaoh that won’t let you go will perish in the red sea).

Thou shall decree a thing and it shall he established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways (Job.22:28).


Words Of Prosperity

It is what you think that makes you rich

Your destiny has its root in your mind. Until your mind is renewed your life can’t be transformed. It’s not what you have that make you rich, it’s what you think. What you have begins with what you think.

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and have good success (Joshua.1:8).

Wait a minute, first, it’s coming from your thoughts, then your mouth (because out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks) and then your acts. Your acts will be of no effects when your thoughts are contrary.

Take for instance, in the school of giving, you may be taking prosperity acts but thinking poverty thoughts. What you think and say are what determine who becomes of you. It’s breakthrough thoughts that make breakthrough, while it’s defeatist thoughts that make failure (you can’t think failure and arrive at success).
