10 Days of Biblical Declarations to Overcome Depression

It is World Mental health week and I am reminded of the supernatural help I received during a difficult period of depression in my life. Although I have no recollection of the moment when life went spiralling downward, I remember some of the symptoms I suffered. Constant crying, mood swings, being irritable and just feeling deeply saddened with life. I was ready to defend myself when criticized, feeling condemned or judged by anybody.

Every day was a struggle and I felt the closest people to me were not emotionally available to help me deal with difficult situations. The only thing that helped me was the Bible. I managed to read it every day, cover to cover.  Even though I didn’t understand a lot of it, I called on the same God who gave many people victory in the Bible. I made several biblical declarations over myself to recover my mindset, using scriptures such as “for God has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).

Overcome Anxiety, Fear, and Panic Attack with Biblical declarations

I had a panic attack recently and it gave me an insight into what most people who suffer from anxiety, fear of the future and Monday blues go through. I didn’t know what was happening to me at the time but it felt like my mind was going to pop right out of my chest. My chest was tight and I had very little strength in my body. My mind was numb and my brain was hurting badly. I thought I was going to run mad. I wanted to get through to the people around me but nobody picked up their calls.

Get Back Your Self-Worth Biblical Declarations

This is for the Christian who sometimes feel less self-worth. This is for you who the society oftentimes make you feel a little less of who you are. It is for you who the community, friends, family or loved ones make you feel less of who the Lord created you to be. This is for you who sometimes get hurt as a result of people’s judgemental opinion of your behaviour, you who suffer from constant criticisms of your choices or disapproval of your decisions in life and making you feel less confident of your self-worth.

Protect Yourself From Stress with Biblical Declarations

For the first time in my adult life I experienced a chronic stress. I didn’t know what hit me without warning until the Lord delivered me from it. I could have protected myself from it had I been aware of its tactics and so I wasn’t prepared for it. You know what they say, “what you don’t know cannot kill you”, but what you do know you can protect yourself from it. Had I been exposed to a level of stress one way or the other, perhaps I would have been prepared and I would have protected myself from it.

I am not sharing this to make you feel afraid but to expose to you that this is one of the way the devil steals, kills and destroy lives, and you can learn from my personal experience so you don’t have to go through the same attack that I went through and you can protect yourself from becoming a stress victim. You know what they say, “prevention is better than cure” but a better way to prevent a thing is to protect yourself from it.

Thankfully we have the right armor to protect ourselves from stress and it is the word of God. It will guard and protect your mind against stress attack when you wear it with all diligence; “Guard your heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23). It will

Overcome Low-Self Esteem

I have seen teenagers battling low self-esteem by trying so hard to become who they are not and I have seen adults pretend they can hold it together whilst dying from this low self-esteem plague. Men cover up with control, manipulation and outburst of anger because they feel inadequate yet unable to admit their weaknesses. Women sleep around because they lack a sense of self-worth. Young adults dress up like grown-ups just to feel accepted. Both male and female succumb to peer pressure just to feel some sense of belonging. This is what low self-esteem does to you; it holds its victims captive, clouds your judgement and fills up your heart with lies. Lies such as you are not worth it, it’s your fault that bad things happen to you, you can never amount to something good, you have to do something wrong before somebody can take notice of you and so on.

21 Biblical Declarations that Boosts Your Self-Confidence

You don’t always feel self confident. Nobody does, not everyday nor all day long anyway, but it’s okay, because life isn’t always rosy. It has its ups and downs, it throws it’s curve balls at you all day long, and it will continue to knock you down until your dying breath. That’s just life and, there’s just no escaping from it.

However, those life challenges aren’t meant to keep you down for life. They may break you but they’re also meant to mould and remould you so that you can learn to build your confidence, stand on your own two feet and grow into maturity.

It is through those life lessons that you can become who God created you to be and it’s through those life challenges that you can step into a better future or into your greatness. So therefore, the only thing that can stop you from moving forward or from living your best life is you.

If you don’t try reaching out to God for help in this seasonal era, life will keep you down, and the only person who can give you long lasting confidence is Christ. Through his words, you can renew your mind, transform your life and create the world you’ve always wanted for yourself and the people around you.

So, whenever you need to prepare yourself for days of trials or when going through life’s difficulties and in need of a confidence boost, why not reach out for these biblical declarations and prayers? They’ll help remind you of God’s promises to you, realign your focus on God and help you achieve a confidence level in Christ that is long lasting, and can withstand any challenges that come your way.

Anybody who wants to succeed always need to talk to themselves first, because in the talking you examine yourself and affirm your capabilities. It is in the talking that you establish your knowledge, accept your desires and build up your hope for the best.

Afterall, there isn’t anyone who goes for an interview without having first prepared themselves? Such a person is either a genius, being exposed to that line of work or is just ready for failure. For anyone who prepares themselves ahead of a test is the person who tend to succeed during trials.

Therefore, if you were to go for an interview, you will need to prepare yourself so that you can speak confidently before your interviewer. You either speak to yourself in the mirror or talk to your friends  about possible questions and scenarios to boost your confidence.

The same principle applies when walking into a room full of strangers; life coaches will tell you, speak to yourself before you get to the venue, walk tall, make eye contact with somebody in the room and smile so that you may appear confident. In the kingdom of God, however, you do not need to fake it till you make it, you can simply claim the truth God has said about you and believe that your confidence will shoot through the roof Continue reading “21 Biblical Declarations that Boosts Your Self-Confidence”

Overcome Feelings of Regret, Guilt and Shame

I couldn’t be friends with most people my age as a young adult because I was ladened with so much shame, guilt and sorrow. This darkness engulfed my childhood and my adolescent life and  I couldn’t live a normal life like many young adults. I couldn’t go to parties for fear of getting caught up in the wrong crowd and ending up with an unwanted pregnancy. I couldn’t have a close friend or a best friend for the fear of being betrayed. My regrets mounted up as I climbed up in years and in stature. Many people thought I was a loner but I was drowning in regrets. Most people my age group were moving forward in life but my shame was holding me back.
