Seeds Of Destiny (SOD), 19 October 2020 - Key Thoughts On Depression

A depressed man is a tired person; he sleeps tired and wakes up tired.


But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers. 
1 Kings 19:4.


A depressed man is a tired person; he sleeps tired and wakes up tired.

Earlier, we saw that depression is a deadly enemy of destiny. When you allow depression to take hold of your life, your destiny is jeopardized.

Now, I will like you to take note of the following key thoughts on depression:

1. Depression is a major sponsor of oppression

Depression opens the door for, and sustains oppression because satan is at work where joy is lacking (1 Samuel 1:18-19).

2. Depression frustrates discretion (Isaiah 12:3)

Depression affects reasoning. Whenever people are depressed, their reasoning pathways are blocked. A depressed person lacks the capacity to find solutions to issues. They are too depressed to think about solution. They are too depressed to think about a way out. Their mind is blocked, and so they cannot reason.

3. Depression decreases momentum (Psalm 42:5)

A depressed man is a tired person. He sleeps tired and wakes up tired. Waking up in the morning is a battle for him. When he wakes up in the morning eventually, he asks himself, “I am going to this office today again?” He sees the distance from his house to the office as a challenge. His energy is gone. He has no enthusiasm for work because he is depressed.

Beloved, determine never to give in to depression. Make the choice for joy always.

Remember this: A depressed man is a tired person; he sleeps tired and wakes up tired.


1. By all means, fight the spirit of depression.

2. Refuse for your momentum in life to decrease because of depression.

3. If the devil wants you to be depressed, by all means rejoice (Philippians 4:4).


Thank You Lord for showing me the dangers of depression. Today, I make the choice for joy. I receive the grace to rejoice in You always Lord, in Jesus’ Name.



A vision is what is ahead of you that keeps you going. It is what keeps you from being depressed and discouraged. It is what keeps you from giving up. Culled from, “15 KINGDOM STRATEGIES FOR SURVIVAL” by Dr Paul Enenche.


Mark 11-13


The howler monkey is the loudest land animal. Its calls can be heard from 3 miles (5 km) away. At its peak, the howler monkey can produce sounds that reach 140 decibels. That’s as noisy as a jet engine, on take-off!


Every attack on your joy is cursed today in Jesus’ Name.
