Jesus is our Healer
Jesus – our healer! That means that also can set you free from depression. The Bible tells us that Jesus went about doing good things everywhere!
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him. (Act 10:38 KJV)
Jesus did not care just for psychical sicknesses. Jesus cared about everything that concerns our life.
Jesus – our Healer – He is the one who restores us. Every kind of damage that the devil has done in our life, Jesus came to change. The Bible actually tells us that the reason Jesus came to this earth, was to destroy the works of the devil!
……For this purpose, the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. (1Jn 3:8 KJV) That’s why we know that we can be free from depression because depression is really something coming from the devil!
Jesus heals the broken hearted
Jesus heals broken hearted people and when you struggle with dark thoughts Jesus is there to help you, to show you the way out.
He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds. Psalm 147:3
God is a merciful God. Maybe you have met a lot of evil; maybe people who have harmed you, condemned you and hurt you. It can sometimes be hard then to think that there is someone who really cares and that can heal from those wounds. But our God He heals the brokenhearted and He wants to help you.
In beginning, when Jesus started His ministry He declared some bible verses from Isaiah. When people heard that they became very angry with Him. But Jesus knew who He was and He knew why He was here on earth. The people did not understand that Jesus was the Messiah. They were just thinking of Him as the Son of Joseph! He read:
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. (Luk 4:18-21 KJV)
Jesus declared that He was sent to this earth to heal the brokenhearted, and preach deliverance for the captives. That includes, of course, them who long to be free from depression and anxiety. Jesus came to help you!
Can you be free from depression instantly? Yes, I think you can. I have heard many wonderful stories about how depression left after prayer and intercession. For God nothing is impossible!
But one way of deliverance is by renewing our mind. That’s how I got free. We are talking about changing our way of thinking. It is not an instant change, but a process that takes a while. But during the time we are renewing our mind by the word of God starts a healing process in our lives. The word of God is powerful! Some people experience a relief quite soon after the start focus on the word of God. That’s how powerful the word is!
Jesus Himself Went Through Pain and Agony
Jesus himself went through pain and agony in order to save us and set us free from depression, fear, anxiety or any things that keep us in bondage. He knows pain, but not just that, what He went through gave us a way out; to freedom!
Listen to those bible verses:
These children are people with physical bodies. So Jesus himself became like them and had the same experiences they have. Jesus did this so that, by dying, he could destroy the one who has the power of death–the devil. Jesus became like these people and died so that he could free them. They were like slaves all their lives because of their fear of death.
(Heb 2:14-15 ERV)
Jesus became like us, so we could be free from fear of death and of course also all kinds of fear and anxiety. (Some psychological experts say that all fear and worry has its roots in our fear of death).
Can you see now, why is it possible for you to be free? Free from depression, sickness or whatever. Sometimes people think that Jesus can heal sickness, but not a mental problem. He can set you free from stomach pain but not set you free from depression. Is that right? No, of course not. He has gone through all and can deliver you from all.
In Gethsemane and on Calvary He took all your pain. He himself did not deserve this – He was without sin, but He did it for you.
He knows how it feels to stand there with all this emotional pain and feel that there I no way out. Everything ahead is darkness. Jesus knew before what He had to go through, torture, despise hatred, mockery, and finally a painful death. He knows the absolute horror that can strike a man or woman’s life. The Bible describes Jesus being in real agony:
And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
(Luk 22:44 KJV)
Jesus did sweat blood. That’s the kind of agony He had. He has gone through the worst of all pain! But He did this so you and I could be free! Free from sin, free from depression, free from sickness, anxiety, and all evil work!
This video is a little bit hard to watch. But it is the reality of what Jesus has gone through. He knows pain! We have a wonderful, wonderful God who did not think of Himself but that are thinking of you and me!
Jesus won the victory! Nothing is too hard for Him! He has already won! If you ever think that it is not possible for you to be free – let me tell you that Jesus can deliver you totally and set you free from depression, negativity, and a dark mind!
