“I️ will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I️ will cleanse you from all impurities and from all your idols.” – Ezekiel 36:25″ I️ bathed you with water and washed the blood from you and put ointments on you.” – Ezekiel 16:9 I️ was journaling earlier and several things came up that brought me to these verses; 1 Jesus can silence the demons and 2 he’s washing me clean. The second one came up in my therapy session as a visual and journaling reminded me of the verse where my therapist said it’s located. I’ve been battling depression, which is something I’ve battled with since I️ was a kid. I’ve recently accepted and admitted it to myself and others but the question still lingers, what do I️ do after I️ accept and admit it. Do I️ just sit and allow it to continue or do I️ ask God for help and fight it somehow. I️ wrote in my journal that I️ feel as though the enemy is holding onto my joy and he doesn’t want to let it go and what exactly am I️ suppose to do about that? I️ don’t really know but I️ did what I️ thought I️ should in the moment. I️ went to scripture and saw sections where Jesus drove demons out of people and commanded them to be quiet and so I️ did what Jesus did. I️ commanded them to leave and I️ commanded them to be quiet. I️ didn’t command the depression to leave but I️ commanded the one holding onto my joy to leave. He leaves and my joy will return. I️n my therapy session I️ saw Jesus washing me clean in a vision, sprinkling water over me; even while I️ had no joy or hope that things would change I️ saw him washing me. He healed so many people and he continues to heal people, I️ pray he is healing me now even when I️ can’t feel/see it.
