Depression: State of Mind
You are what you…BELIEVE
Daily Devotional for Depression ~Day 3~
The way you believe will either keep you bound or set you free. If you are a superstitious person and you believe that you will have 7 years of bad luck if you break a mirror, then bad things will probably start happening in your life if you break a mirror. There is no such thing as ‘luck’. We are blessed. We are not lucky.
When Jesus healed the blind men in Matthew 9:28 NIV says, “Jesus asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” and they replied, “yes, Lord.” And they were healed. They were healed because they believed they would be healed if Jesus was willing to heal them. They didn’t doubt it and they didn’t waver in their belief.
I have struggled with why some people get healed and some don’t. I believe that Jesus is our healer and that He can heal us. I guess my question is ‘will He’? This is something that I have been dealing with most of my life. God showed me this verse in Matthew 8: 2-3 NIV says, “A man with leprosy came and knelt before Jesus and said, “Lord if you are willing, you can make me clean.” Jesus reached out His hand and touched him, “I am willing,” He said, “Be clean.” “Immediately he was cured of his leprosy.” I believe that Jesus is willing and He is able.
What do you believe?
