SUICIDE IS NOT AN OPTION!
Psalm 34:18 – The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (NIV)
The act of suicide could be traced to issues with which the perpetrators could not cope so that they thought killing themselves would end their miseries. But, the truth is that the journey to damnation has just begun (Exodus 20:13).
Whatever situation makes you feel worthless and suicidal, must be tackled. Anything causing the mind to faint and believe that death or self-harm would bring lasting peace must be defeated. Studying the account of Job, he had every reason to kill himself, especially after his wife advised him; yet, he waited on God (Job 2:9-10). Similarly, when David became very distressed, having lost everything, he never considered suicide. Instead, he encouraged himself in the Lord and recovered all (1 Samuel 30:1-31).
Beloved, are you a sufferer of emotional imbalance and self-destructive thoughts? That is, you are overwhelmed by life. Perhaps, you got jilted or experiencing heartbreaks and hardships. Today! As read in our Bible reading, the Lord does not forsake the weak and depressed. He welcomes everyone—especially those in desperate circumstances, to hold fast to Him and find peace (John 14:27). Because earthly things and pleasure never give ultimate satisfaction except when we make God’s vision, our reality! Accept Jesus’ invitation and tell Him everything— He cares!
Hymn: I Must Tell Jesus — Elisha A. Hoffman (1893)
1. Holy Ghost! Baptise and direct me into the joy of salvation.
2. Blood of Jesus! Silence ancestral suicidal voices, saying, it is my turn.
1. Father, stabilise my emotions (thoughts) and give me peace!
2. I decree! Affliction shall never rise again in my life.
3. Father, as a family, nation, and the church, please move us into our rest.
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS THE ANTIDOTE TO SUICIDE!
