WAY OUT OF DESTRUCTIVE THOUGHTS
1 Peter 5:7
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. (NIV)
The first action to curb thoughts of suicide and low self-esteem is to understand that God gives life, and made all things perfectly beautiful (Revelation 4:11). Secondly, maintain a prayer-wired life to silence evil imaginations (2 Corinthians 10:1-5). Although there are people whose problems are ancestral—depression, oppression, death, delays in marriage (good things); yet, prayer is essential to their deliverance (Psalms 107:6).
Further, having prayed, some destructive habits may require practical corrective measures. For example, if you are battling with addiction (drug abuse, masturbation, pornography) or poor self-management, you should undertake rehabilitation (Speak to an expert). Similarly, if you find yourself always moody, pray for the baptism of the Holy Spirit who gives joy (Romans 15:13), and engage more in Godly activities, such as studying the word, evangelism, singing, and sports, among others.
Finally, some individuals suffer distress because they were let down by their spouse-to-be (or friends). Such people must move on—if it was meant to be, God would perfect all things. Therefore, we must learn to trust in the Lord and be sensitive (Proverbs 3:5-6). Above all, if need be, accept Christ today (2 Corinthians 5:17) and cast your burdens at His feet as our Bible text says. He is a sure fortress! (Proverbs 18:10).
Hymn: All Things Bright and Beautiful — Cecil F. Alexander (1848)
- Arrows of depression and multiple afflictions fired against me. Backfire!
- Ancestral traits of suicide, poverty, and failure (mention). I erase you by the blood of Jesus!
- Satanic magnets, merging me with bad luck and wrong choices for marriage, scatter to pieces!
- Holy Spirit! Take over and cancel every rage against my sanity and progress.
- The fire of deliverance! Enter my life, nation, and the church, to deliver us.
