In this Part 4 Series of Healing, you will learn about the power of fasting and the freedom, deliverance, and victory that you will receive when you fast. Jesus commands us to fast and pray as Christians. It is part of living a Christian life. Many Christians have never fasted and are losing out on the incredible benefits and rewards of this Christian discipline. There is tremendous power and victory in fasting! If you are depressed or suicidal right now and you have tried everything in your power to help yourself, whether it be medical help, medicine, therapy, nutrition, homeopathic approaches, exercise, and nothing has worked, then this episode could radically change your life for the better! Fasting and praying may be the missing link in your journey to healing and deliverance. Meredith shares her story of fasting, the benefits of individual and corporate fasting, Biblical accounts of fasting, as well as a FREE Fasting and Prayer Guide (25 pages) for you to download at www.makingtheturnaround.com in the free resource center.
Depression is just a symptom of something more profound taking place within a person, within the mind, body, spirit, and soul. In this episode, Meredith talks about the pruning process of depression and the blessings that can come from it. In the Gospel of John, the Lord is referred to as the ‘Gardener’ of our souls. He prunes His children in the act of love to refine us, grow us deeper in His love, and direct us to our God-given call in life. The enemy of God, Satan, wants nothing more than people to give up on life and remain hopeless. The Bible says he comes to kill, steal, and destroy lives. When people fall into such despair during the depression that they contemplate suicide as an option, Satan is achieving his goals of destruction in that person’s life. But, when a person understands the pruning process in the life of a child of God and the power of surrendering to it, they can overcome and win the battle of depression. Meredith also shares the biblical view of suicide, what happens to a person’s soul if one commits suicide, and how to defeat suicidal ideation through Christ. In this episode, you will also hear about three special benefits Charles Spurgeon says you can obtain if you embrace the depression and see it as a blessing in disguise. This episode could change your perspective on depression; you don’t want to miss it!
Meredith continues this healing series on depression in Part Two by sharing the first key to healing: Surrender. She explains how surrendering yourself, feelings, emotions, and Will to God is paramount in moving forward through the dark valley of depression. Depression, if viewed from the eternal perspective, can be a beautiful gift that leads to a renewed and refined life in Christ. What may seem like a curse may be the greatest blessing. Meredith also shares a story that was the first step in her healing of depression, and it’s about a red lizard. Depression, in its many forms, is always connected to our Spirits. When we seek to be healed from depression (mind, body, and Soul), it can be healing in our Spirits. Don’t miss out on this Healing Series on Depression.
