Christian Depression Bible Study Questions
Where does depression come from? That is just on of the things we discussed in our free 3 part study of how to overcome depression. Here are Krysti's answers to the Christian depression Bible Study questions (lesson 2)...
1. Do you believe that depression is more of a spiritual battle, or a medical battle? Why?
Spiritual battle..2. Have you ever had times when it felt like it would physically hurt to praise the Lord?
Yes, the past 2 days it was impossible for me to go to God, read his word or even praise him. Today when I got up I said enough is enough, I started worshiping and the tears kept coming and I could feel the release, but at the same time I could hear my mind recapping the things that got me depressed. It was a battle, but I know I already have the victory...even if I don't feel it at times..my job is to cling to God's promises and know who I am in Christ.3. What parts of your spiritual armor are a bit rusty? How can you strengthen them for your battle with Satan for your healing for depression?
My belt of truth needs some work. Sometimes I allow what people say about me to override what God says about me It plays on my self esteem. If I write scriptures that say who I am in Christ and keep them on hand to read, it would help big time. God's opinion is the only one that matters.
The fact that it's my mind that's being attacked, shows that my helmet is not on properly. If I spend more time reading the bible, focus more on God's promises and what he has in store for me, the role of the Holy Spirit in my life and the fact that I have the victory.
I really need to keep scripture on hand or start a journal.
That would help.
