Many of you may know that I worked as a Mental Health Clinician, a Godless industry, that I do not believe will cure anyone of any “mental illness” they may have. If you are a believer, you know that satan works to harm us through our minds, primarily.
When you have God on your side, and are a living, breathing, true Christian, you have the Holy Spirit who guides you and gives you things to think about in order to solve your problems. That is not all He does. He is God and will teach you from the Word what you should be thinking.
When you have satan in charge of your life because you do not believe in Jesus Christ, you become under the auspices of the demonic realm. It may take some time to come out if you have not been a Christian earlier in your life, such as those like myself who were raised in atheist families.
If you know what the demonic realm can do to a person, especially striking the mind with demonic thoughts, you know what I mean when I say that Christian counseling is the way out.
Not only will you find a friend in the Lord Jesus, but He will begin to fight your battles for you;
And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed. ~ Deuteronomy 31:8
With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah. ~ 2 Chronicles 32:8
He promised us to have a sound mind;
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. ~ 2 Timothy 1:7
Biblical counseling is best. Where in mental health literature can you find these and other truths of Christ?
I believe mental illness can best be served by Christian counseling. Of course, clients and patients being treated for their mental illnesses must believe Jesus Christ is Lord.
To obtain life with inner peace, no matter what the circumstances, walking in Christ is the better answer.
