Dazzling Secrets for Despondent Saints
Dazzling Secrets for Despondent Saints is written with those in mind who may well cry out every morning when they awake and groan, “Oh, if only it were evening!” and in the evening you will cry, “Oh, if only it were morning!” (De 28:66-67)
Does that describe you, or perhaps someone you know? Recent surveys suggest that 1 in 6 people will suffer a major depression in their lifetime. Fifty years ago the average age of people suffering from depression was 40; now it has fallen to the mid-20s. Among teenagers, suicide is one of the most common causes of death; in some areas, it is the second most common cause.
About This Course
What is the best remedy for depression? How can Christians maintain a life of continual victory? These pages will present some key ideas that can lift people out of the gloomy pit and keep them living in the sunshine of God’s love. You may not need help for yourself; yet there are probably people around you who are hurting. With these keys in your hand, you may be able to help them escape from darkness and come to light.
You may notice the absence of any section in this book dealing with the devil. That is not because I do not recognise his power to destroy human life. I understand full well that he comes, as Jesus said, only “to steal, kill, and destroy” (Jn 10:10). But despite common opinion, Satan is seldom the immediate cause of depression, and I felt he could be safely left out of these pages (apart from an occasional reference here and there.)
