What you say is true. Depression is not of God. Demons are out to destroy us any way they can....disease, vanity, sin, crime....and to distract us from the only thing that really matters....Jesus.
If I use an opiate drug once in a while to rescue myself from what I call a crisis day, I'm ok with that. If I use cannabis sometimes to feel better, eat better, or sleep better, I'm ok with that. Because they allow me the opportunity to stay focused on the bigger picture.
On the other hand, I do have reservations about using most psych meds on a continuous basis....that is unless they truly renew a person's life....because of the usual emotional numbing. See, a person can get rid of their depression with an SSRI, yet enter that numbed flat state SSRIs do so well, and as far as the demons are concerned that is just fine....because in that numbed emotional state it will be impossible to have a relationship with God and Jesus. Therefore I believe it is important to seek methods of healing that are not emotionally numbing. Yet at the same time, if we are going to be Godly about it, it has to be legal and issues such as addiction have to be avoided.
