Depression: State of Mind
You are what you…SEE
Daily Devotional for Depression ~Day 5~
According to merriam-webster.com, when we SEE something we: have experience of; we come to know; we visualize; we understand; we are aware of; we recognize and imagine as a possibility. Proverbs 29:18 KJV says, “Where there is no vision the people perish; but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” When we have no vision for our lives, we’re like zombies wondering around aimlessly with no direction. We’re only existing, but not living. God wants us to live a good and abundant life, not a life of lack and sickness.
We need to see our lives in a positive light. Satan takes so much from us. We need to stop letting him steal our vision and our time. Time is short. We need to keep our eyes on God. Job 7:7 NIV says, “Remember, O’ God, that my life is but a breath; my eyes will never see happiness again.” Even though Job went through so much heartache, he never cursed God like his wife wanted him to. God ended up giving him back everything he lost, with interest. He got double for his trouble. Everybody has bad days and good days. If your focus is only on the bad, then you will never be able to see the good.
