Depression or Something Spiritual

Daniel 10

If I was going through what Daniel was going through, somebody would try get me scheduled for mental health treatments. Especially if they knew that I had been mourning for 3 weeks without eating, without drinking, and without freshening up. Maybe a couple family members would try to get me to cheer up by taking me out for dinner, a couple drinks, and to talk to some girls. Instead of psychological treatment and a quick “pick me up”, Daniel got a message from the Lord, “At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over.” Daniel 3:3

It was the messenger sent from God that gave Daniel a lift, “A hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees. He said, “Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you.” And when he said this to me, I stood up trembling.” Daniel 10:10-11

The very important words that Daniel would receive is about the contents in the scripture of truth, “So, he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? Soon I will return to fight against the prince of Persia, and when I go, the prince of Greece will come; but first I will tell you what is written in the Book of Truth. No one supports me against them except Michael, your prince.” Daniel 10:20-21

“The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.” and “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” Psalm 19:7 and John 1:14
