SCRIPTURE: Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. Habakkuk 3:17-18.

It has been confirmed that depression is an attack on life and destiny. Extreme depression is a mental ill health condition. But joy is medicinal; joy is therapeutic.

When you squeeze your face in depression, you freeze your life, and when you freeze your life, you freeze your destiny. Depression is a major platform for the destruction of life, health and system (1 Corinthians 10:10). That will not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.

Sometime ago, I was talking with one of my children. The moment we started talking, she started laughing. She laughed and laughed and laughed.

Then my wife said, “Ah! You children, tell me what Daddy does to you that you keep laughing all the time.”

My wife has the gift of smiling and I have the gift of making people laugh. So, I keep my home filled with excitement and joy instead of tension or depression.

In the course of a study I did some years ago, I came across an American writer called Zig Ziglar.

He said there was a study done about octogenarians, that is, people who lived up to eighty years and above. The study was to reveal the secret of their longevity. And one of the core secrets of those people was a healthy sense of humour. It was observed that those octogenarians lived long because they knew how to laugh and be happy. They also knew how to make other people happy.

By living in the realm of happiness, they lived up to eighty years and above.

Beloved, by all means, reject depression. Choose the pathway of joy and you will find a healthy long life.

REMEMBER THIS: Depression is a major platform for the destruction for life, health and system.


  1. By all means, refuse to be depressed.
  2. Make the choice for joy and happiness. Determine your environment and do not allow your environment to determine your behaviour.

PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You deliver me from the spell of depression. I receive the grace to make the choice for joy, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.


QUOTE: When you are not thankful and excited, you lack joy. If you lack joy, you lack strength, and when you lack strength, you end in defeat. Culled from the book “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: Joel 2-Amos 1.

AMAZING FACT: Acacia trees in Africa communicate with each other. They emit gasses to alert other trees to produce the toxin tannin, which protects them from hungry animals.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Every spirit or spell of depression be destroyed off your life today in the Name of Jesus’ Name.
