People are divided now, how can a believer of Jesus stand firm in their faith? Pastor Michael Jakes talks about satan can oppress you and how to use songs and psalms to change your focus to praising God, saying Depression keeps you down so you can’t see the top or way out, which gives satan a foothold in your life, resulting in oppression.
