Suicidal thoughts are from the devil. He knows that once you kill yourself, you are going to meet him in hell. I know that there are lots of pressures around you and voices in your head to end it all but by the power in the Name of Jesus Christ, whom I serve and whose I am, as you read this blog post, those voices are silenced for life! Can I hear a resounding AMEN? AMEN!
Okay, so now, especially in Nigeria, recently we see on the news, people taking their lives due to their circumstances. One that struck me was that of a teenager in one of our universities. She took her life because her boyfriend broke up with her. Such a beautiful young lady but she wrote in her suicidal note that she didn’t see the purpose of her life.
See that? PURPOSE! Suicidal thoughts are all stemmed up from a feeling of lack of purpose to one’s life. It might be not having enough money or getting over a heartbreak. The devil uses that opportunity to tell you that lie that your life does not have any worth and it is finished. Dear reader, this is not true. The truth is that you are on this earth for a specific purpose and nothing around you has the ability to remove that purpose from you.
And you too, you have no right to take your life or think suicidal thoughts because you didn’t make you.
Imagine iPhone attempting suicide because it feels it has gone through a lot or it has no use to anyone again or it does not see the point of being used any more. Would that not be an insult to the apple company? God had amazing plans while creating you. He is your manufacturer. And it is His delight to see His product function well. But to go through life, you have to read your manual to understand you. He won’t give up on you so do not give up on yourself.
ACTION PLAN: Meditate on Jeremiah 1:5 Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of the day, I had holy plans for you: A prophet to the nations--that is what I had in mind for you.
