Now that I am saved and have been delivered from demonic forces, I still feel depressed. Is this normal?
A person who sees the light of God will have their eyes opened to the truth. They may look at the past with sadness and regret for time wasted. But, in the Bible it says God will make up for the time we wasted. He is THAT good!
Here is a verse to find comfort in when those thoughts of regret start creeping in:
“Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a NEW CREATURE; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Cor. 5:17
I feel so alone in my demonic experience. How do I deal with that?
Because of the nature of the problem, many people do not admit they have had trouble or issues with demons. This shroud of secrecy is what keeps people from getting help and this isolation stops the growth of a person who has been delivered.
I think that it is important to remember that you are not alone in your mistakes—everyone (no matter if their mistakes are demonic in nature or not) has regrets and sins. Sin does not discriminate. All social classes, sexes and races feel the pain it causes.
“For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” Rom. 3:23
When negative thoughts start creeping in, what do I do?
Do not beat yourself up over the things that Christ died on the cross to forgive you of. You are forgiven. You were set free the minute you ask Christ to come into your heart and to cleanse you with the blood He shed on Calvary. Your sins were nailed to the cross with Him. He suffered so you did NOT have to.
This verse is proof of that:
“There is therefore no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk after the flesh, but after the spirit.” Rom. 8:1
I feel like I am constantly dealing with depression and sad thoughts since my deliverance. Why is this happening to me, should I question if I was completely delivered?
If you continue to get negative emotions that are sweeping you in an undertow, it would be safe to assume that the devil and his demons are trying to pull you back into the pit of depression, because even though they no longer hold up residence in your physical body—they can effect your mind and where your mind goes, your heart follows.
The goal of the demonic world is if they cannot take you to hell with them, they want you to be ineffective in taking other souls with you to heaven. If you are depressed and focused on yourself, you will have no power to help others and your testimony does not mean very much. You are not a victor if you are swimming in depression.
That it is why it is SO important to soak your mind in the Word of God. There is power in the Word to heal YOU.
“And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.” Rom. 12:2
