Isaiah 20 (NIV)A Prophecy Against Egypt and CushSo, the question.. ok demand... of my heart is, "I want everything to end." What I am referring to is the depression, worries, and such.
1 In the year that the supreme commander, sent by Sargon king of Assyria, came to Ashdod and attacked and captured it- 2 at that time the LORD spoke through Isaiah son of Amoz. He said to him, "Take off the sackcloth from your body and the sandals from your feet." And he did so, going around stripped and barefoot.
3 Then the LORD said, "Just as my servant Isaiah has gone stripped and barefoot for three years, as a sign and portent against Egypt and Cush, [a] 4 so the king of Assyria will lead away stripped and barefoot the Egyptian captives and Cushite exiles, young and old, with buttocks bared—to Egypt's shame. 5 Those who trusted in Cush and boasted in Egypt will be afraid and put to shame. 6 In that day the people who live on this coast will say, 'See what has happened to those we relied on, those we fled to for help and deliverance from the king of Assyria! How then can we escape?' "
Colossians 1:13-14 (NKJV)13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14 in whom we have redemption through His blood,[a] the forgiveness of sins.
God has given me deliverance already? Through the Kingdom of the Son of His Love. So, if I live according to the world's economy, then I will be depressed and suicidal for as long as my body says. But when I am seeking a much needed mental healing, then as far as God is concerned, I have it already, as long as I have my salvation. So, the minute I accepted Jesus, I had my salvation. Perhaps, I need to remember this again.
