how-to-defeat-anxiety-and-depression

I am sure you already know definition of anxiety and depression. Therefore, there is no point for you to read the definition again. Can you defeat anxiety and depression? Yes, you can! Anxiety and depression are curable 100 percent. You need to change the way of thinking! It is not easy, but it is possible and you have the power to change your life! The first step is to realise that you have the problem and then decide to fight against that problem!!

Anxiety and depression can only be cured when a person constantly works on oneself and when that person accepts the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the peace of God. By going to a psychiatrist you can get a remedy, but you cannot get a full recovery. Remedy can only give you the time that you need to stabilize yourself again. I am against all antidepressants, but if you or your psychiatrist decide that you should take them, you should know one thing. Antidepressant can't heal you! It is a drug which can reduce negative things in your mind, but only as long as you take them. After you stop taking them, the situation in many cases is the same as before taking these drugs. Why? Because antidepressant is not on the market to help you to cope with anxiety and depression. It can solve some problems, but not the main ones. So I emphasize that taking these drugs is not a final solution of your problem. It can help you, but only if you are working on yourself everyday. In my opinion, it is better to avoid them. You need to say to yourself that you are strong enough and you can live without these drugs. Remember that your words have the power and if you are constantly repeating positive words to yourself, you are in the best position to win the fight against this modern disease. You just need to believe in yourself and your abilities. In order to achieve full control over your mind you should practice your mind in the same way you practice your body in a gym. Stop thinking that you are a negative person. You are not! Stop thinking you can't do something! You can do everything! Everything is possible! You need to practise! You need to reprogram your subconscious mind in order to become more positive! In the video below you should watch what Dr. Bruce Lipton said about reprogramming of the subconscious mind.

How to Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind

Furthermore the problem of anxiety and depression remains until you decide to completely surrender your life into God's hands. God has a plan and you have to understand that everything is his will. If you are in a state of anxiety your main enemy is fear and worry and it just means that you are not relying on God, but you are relying on that human side in you. Never rely on your own strength! It is a guaranteed doom. Never rely entirely on other people. It also leads to dissatisfaction of the soul. You must strive to gain trust in God. If you surrender all your worries to him and call him into your heart, he will heal you with his strength. In other words, you will receive grace. It is written in the Bible that God does everything in his right time and therefore do not ask yourself why something is happening to you and when the suffering will stop. You should read the Bible. Every letter and every word in the Bible is inspired by God. The Bible contains living words and every word has its power. Whoever reads the Bible gets permanent protection from evil demons.

In today’s modern society, the world does not rely on faith and God and that is why many evils happen. The word of God has been completely ignored. Due to the lack of the presence of God in people's lives, many diseases of the soul have appeared. Anxiety and depression are diseases of the soul. Their healing requires a God whom no remedy for this state of mind can replace. It is logical that the soul should be healed by God, because the soul is the spirit of God and the spirit of God is present in all of us.

The suffering of the soul ceases the moment you decide to let God into your life. Anxiety and depression lead to the destruction of the soul and you have to understand this to overcome this condition. Satan strives with his lies to deceive you and to trap you in your own body. Satan uses fear to destroy the soul and to remove man from God who can remove every fear.

There are so many techniques to defeat anxiety and depression and sometimes it is hard to choose which one is the best. Although there are so many great techniques, in my opinion the best technique is called prayer. It is not an easy technique, but it can change your life. Pray and you will gain inner peace. You must learn how to pray. Many people do not know that prayer is the strongest medicine and many do not know how to pray. Furthermore, many underestimate the power of words and prayer. In prayer, be humble and show honor and praise to the Lord. My friend once asked me: "Why doesn’t my prayer work? I am praying to God every night and I am praying for the strength to overcome anxiety and depression". I answered him: Do not pray to God only in the evening because it is not a prayer, but a routine. Pray every day and use every free moment of the day for prayer and growth in spirit. Then I asked him: "Do you eat only in the evening or every time you feel the need for food?" The answer was logical and he told me that he eats every time he feels hungry. Hence, you should understand prayer as food for a stable spiritual life. Human food satisfies the body, and prayer nourishes and blesses the soul.

You should realise that psychiatrist doesn't treat the soul! Medications do not soothe the soul! Some people stay on antidepressants because they are scared and do not believe in the power of prayer. Every medicine is useful if used in the right way, but you should know that prayer is a long-term medicine. It has no expiration date. The medicine works faster, but prayer works more effectively. The remedy keeps the state of anxiety and depression in the background, and prayer destroys all anxiety, fear, negative thoughts, and depression. During each day, try to talk to yourself! The more positive words you say out loud to yourself, the more you will feed your soul. Be insatiable in this. There is strength in every word of God and by repeating these positive words every cell changes for the better. If you ask me where is the evidence, I will tell you that I am the evidence. Science has been given to humanity to realise how great is the Lord. Unfortunately, many do not understand this. Many try to look out for the proof for everything. If you don’t have a proof and if you’re not a doctor many people will reject your opinion. Still, I have proof. The proof is the Holy Bible! Open, read, pray and rest your soul! In prayer, Our Father, we pray: Give us this day our daily bread! We are not praying for yesterday or tomorrow. Live for today! This will remove all your worries. Many worries come from over-planning for the future and from irrational fear of the future. Have a little faith in our Lord!

I have singled out some quotes about fear from the Bible so you can use it every time you feel discouraged.

Joshua 1:9 - Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

Matthew 6:34 - Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Psalm 94:19 - When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.

Psalm 27:1 - The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?

Isaiah 41:10 - So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

You should try to understand these words from the Bible and store them in your mind and heart. When you keep these words in your mind and heart, the devil cannot harm you. If you don't have these words in your heart and mind you will be an easy target for evil demons. Hence, accept these words as true words and as a shield against Satan. Do not be afraid of anything. The only fear you may have is the fear of the Lord. All other fears are irrational and they can destroy you and take away your peace of mind. Don’t let the modern world poison you with its settings! Don't let the modern world a chance to make of you a program of its choice. Take a break from the news, from social networks, from meaningless worries and from everything that distances you from God! Believe in miracles and healing. Believe in God!

Our God answers on our prayers - evidence from the Bible

1 John 5:14-15 - This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of him.

1 John 14:13-14 - And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

Mark 11:23 - Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them.

At the very end of this article I want to emphasize again: Anxiety and depression are curable!! Have faith!

Relaxing music for anxiety!

Personally as a previous, teacher, preacher, counselor and Lawyer I would caution you here. It is dangerous territory to advise people regarding whether or not professionals should be employed.
