We have seen nowadays, that a lot of people are killing themselves. Suicide is actually the second leading cause of death for people aged 10-34yrs old. But why are so many people giving up and taking their own lives? 

The Word of God says, 

Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression,
But a good word makes it glad. Proverbs 12:25

Let me explain to you how it goes. First, satan causes the problem in your life. Next, he brings the anxiety because of the problem. Then, you become so desperate to fix and solve the problem that you feel anxious and when it is taking long to be solved, you began to feel depressed. 

But Jesus healed depression. There was a man that used to be in the tomb (though nowadays it’s a dark room instead of the tomb). He used to take stones (though nowadays people use knives) and cut himself. They would try to bind him, but he would break the chains. These days people put a person in the mental hospital and pump meds into their system. And the man used to be in the mountains. But when he came to Jesus, the demon was cast out and everyone saw the change. He was no longer naked, cutting himself or screaming. Everyone saw him eating and speaking as normal.

Through this, we see that the power is in the Word of God. And the power of God is the only power that can set a person free from depression. He has done it in many lives and wants to do it in yours and your families. So stop thinking you or your family is a lost cause, and start to fight this problem through faith and dependency on the Word of God. 

May the God of the Bible Bless You
