When we are oppressed, we feel crushed, as though we are under a truck, stuck, unable to move and incapacitated by its overpowering presence. Under such weight, we might not recognize what we are dealing with. We wonder, “what is wrong with me? Why is it so difficult to function? Why am I not walking in love and peace but experiencing this sudden depression?” 

Many things happen in our lives that may cause us to be depressed or fearful, but our state of mind improves as soon as we handle the situation. When we are oppressed, our mindset does not go away but becomes constant and affects every area of our lives. We cannot pinpoint the cause of our turmoil or explain it to others. Nothing specific happened. We just know it did.    

The moment we become aware we are under spiritual oppression; we reach out for the Lord’s deliverance. We lay hold of His Saving Word and cry out for His Spirit to set us free! We call upon others we trust to pray for us, in Jesus’ name! When we are weak, God remains strong. We can trust His power and reclaim our freedom, from glory to glory!   

1 Kings 19:9 “And there he went into a cave and spent the night in that place; and behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and He said to him, ‘What are you doing here, Elijah?’”
