Mental Health and the Battle with the Evil One

Mental health illness does not disappear like a light switch being turned off anymore than it was clicked on one day. It’s a combination of genetics and environment.

Don’t get me wrong – GOD CAN AND HAS AND WILL HEAL PEOPLE 100% of those who deal with mental health issues.

So far, I’m not one. My “yes” answer could come anytime as God often doesn’t say NO but instead it’s wait…

The verses below talk about living in the Light with the Light being Jesus. The commandment is to love your neighbors as yourself…

1 John 2:8–14 (NLT): Jesus lived the truth of this commandment, and you also are living it.

For the darkness is disappearing, and the true light is already shining.

If anyone claims, “I am living in the light,” but hates a fellow believer, that person is still living in darkness.

Anyone who loves a fellow believer is living in the light and does not cause others to stumble. But anyone who hates a fellow believer is still living and walking in darkness. Such a person does not know the way to go, having been blinded by the darkness.

I am writing to you who are God’s children because your sins have been forgiven through Jesus.

I am writing to you who are mature in the faith because you know Christ, who existed from the beginning.

I am writing to you who are young in the faith because you have won your battle with the evil one.

I have written to you who are God’s children because you know the Father.

I have written to you who are mature in the faith because you know Christ, who existed from the beginning.

I have written to you who are young in the faith because you are strong.

God’s word lives in your hearts,
and you have won your battle with the evil one.

John, if memory is correct, is a Mary and Joseph brother of Jesus.

I would hope I’m now mostly living in the Light… When I first had my melt down, I wasn’t… Instead I was in a deep darkness… Isolated – self isolated… I was blinded by the darkness, because I hated myself…

I had forgotten that the WAR of death and darkness had already been won!

When I turned back to God the darkness was already disappearing…

So is life all candy drops and rainbows? No.

Regardless of mental health issues, every Christan has a daily battle with their walk…

There are days, sometimes a few in a row… Sometimes a week or…

With mental health, I think at least for me, the results are more pronounced when it comes… it can be hard to notice the shadow that grows…

And other times, it isn’t the shadow, it can be medication… Which will lead to the shadow as Satan will use anything he can…

Don’t forget, we have physical changes to our brain!

Bottom line… Remember Jesus already whipped Satan when He died on the cross… Keep this truth in mind especially in the shadow days and look for His light…
