John 16:33 says ‘I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.’
1 Corinthians 10:13 also says No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation, he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
Mental health is an important issue in today’s world. There are a lot of people who have been overwhelmed by the pressures and stresses of this life that we live. When the worries of this life become so much for our physical bodies to bear we may eventually break down.
Our brains have been made special by the almighty to be able to handle any challenge that we may face. He says in his word that he will never allow anything to come our way that will be too much for us to handle. Our relationships and interactions in this life can cause us to break down if we are not careful. Also, the financial struggles that we face can also cause our mentalities to be overwhelmed.
As Christians, God has given us the power to withstand any challenge that we face on earth. We need to build ourselves to be mentally strong by fixating and meditating on his word day and night so that we will not break down when things get hard for us.
No matter how many times we fall we are strengthened by the Lord to rise again and enjoy better glories in our latter years than the former years. Do not allow the issues and worries of this world to overwhelm you because he has already overcome the world on our behalf.
Whenever we face distressing and depressing situations it is important for us to remember that we are already victorious and need not drive ourselves crazy thinking about it.
As Jesus said, the birds in the sky do not think about where their next meal is coming from but even they live happily how much more we who have been called by name. We are already victorious and need not let worldly issues get us down.

As Christians, we have to draw closer to people. We must hug and talk to them especially when they are going through mental challenges. God expects us to be our brother’s keeper which means our neighbor’s problems should be our problem. This is the only way people will do the same for us.
We should foster loving and warm relationships with people we meet and live with. Pray for those with mental issues. Give them a shoulder to cry on and a listening ear. Help them back on their feet with encouragement, love, and warmth.
Psalm 94:19 says when the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.
John 16:33 also says ‘I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world, you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.’
