The District Superintendent of Christ Apostolic Church, Peaceland District, Pastor F. A. Oke has urged everyone not to feel left alone in the midst of depression, trouble or challenges of life.

He noted that the presence of trouble does not mean the absence of God; stressing that God works when things look dark and even when the enemy is fighting.

Pastor Oke who stated this on his verified Facebook page in a post, titled "In times like these: Cheer up", said God works - in all things and at all times for your good.

In his words; "Have you gone through depression before ? Have you ever been at the shore of no hope? A man of God had earlier witnessed it in the Bible and cried out, 'take away my life for I'm no better than my fathers.' He uttered this statement because he was depressed. Depression is a condition of prolonged sadness, marked by feelings of hopelessness and inability to think clearly. It is a period of low spirit, gloomy, dejection, sadness, decrease in force or activity."

"Robert H. Schuller once said; 'when the roads get though, the though people get going, when the roads are though, the though rises to the occasion.' They win, they survive, they come out on top. Though people can weather the worst storm. They can rough out the roughest times/weather. Friends, here is a lesson for you to take after the courageous people of God by saying; 'I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me.' God is working on every ugly predicament of your life."
