Praise Report: Delivered From 10 Months Of Severe Depression

I just read your book, Destined To Reign, and words can’t describe how much I’ve been set
I was severely depressed for almost 10 months and my condition was worsening by the month. I would get very introspective and self-conscious to the point that I would have anxiety attacks. Sometimes, I would be so worn out from the anxiety that I just wanted to sleep and do nothing.

I was unmotivated and felt dejected, purposeless and worthless. It just seemed as if there was no way I could get out of the depressive state. I kept looking at all my actions and just allowed my thoughts to define my identity. My school grades began to suffer and I even had thoughts of suicide.

During this time, I was hungry and desperate for answers from the Lord. I read the Bible, searched out questions and sermons online and read many books. I’d learned so much during this period—about our identity as sons of God, how we are already forgiven, how our thought life is where the battle is, and the power of grace. Yet, each time I tried to apply all this knowledge in my life, it just didn’t work. I still felt depressed.

It was not until I bought and read your book, Destined To Reign, that the huge boulder that was on my shoulders for almost a decade was finally lifted off! I was already a Christian but was only set free after I discovered through your book the true meaning of grace and being saved.

It was such a simple shift in perspective that I can’t believe I didn’t know this before! It’s not our ability to obey in our thoughts, but it’s Christ’s obedience. Because my new identity is in Christ, I have no more fears as my focus is now on HIM and not me!

Thank you again for your preaching on grace. I am now even more confident and joyful then I was before the depression had even started!

    Hi, my name is Siyabulela I’m a South African. I have been born again since 1994 but I don’t have anything to show for it. I have nothing and I’m turning 40 in September. I only started listening to Ps Prince this year, I need help, I read the Bible every day and I pray almost every chance I get. I need to see God move in my life, what can I do? I last had a job in 2011, I don’t even have friends anymore. Please pray with me.

    Today is a day where I have wanted to end my life. Simply because I hate myself and what I do..I fail him in the worst ways possible. Even though I am aware of the grace word. I am diagnosed with bipolar disorder. My husband divorced me because I was uncontolable..I hav five sons and I have put them through so much misery. That will all end when I leave this world.

  • Josh K. says:

    Am so encouraged by the above testimony on deliverance from 10 months of Depression. Thanks for giving me hope and courage to trust, rest and look to Jesus even as am currently facing challenges. I have battled depression for more than 20 years now due the abuse l went through after the death of my dad when l was 9.

    Much of the adulthood l have fought and struggled with low self esteem, shame, loss, stagnancy, delayment, self pity, set backs in my career, finances, relationships and other areas of my life, which are some how affecting me now at 40 years old. But after hearing and reading materials from Joseph Prince for some time now, and 2015 being the year of His Restoration, am belivieving God to heal and restore the years l have lost in my both my childhood and adulthood.

    I have started to re-read Destiny To Reign, after which I will re-read unmerited Favour and Right Believing by Joseph Prince. Please pray for me as l belive God for healing in these areas of my life. Thank you Bro. Steven for sharing your testimony as l relate to the struggles you faced and for giving me much hope to keep believing and looking to Jesus for healing and deliverance.

    God Bless you,
    Josh K.
