Are you having suicidal thoughts?

suicidal

I was listening to a testimony recently where a sister in Christ testified that her friend burst into her house and she tried to stab herself with a kitchen knife. She alerted her neighbour and both of them succeeded in taking the knife from her. When asked why she wanted to kill herself, her friend confessed a voice told her to go and kill herself and she acted on it. She just felt frustrated with life and she wanted to die and go away.

I am thus asking in this post today whether you are having suicidal thoughts or whether such thoughts ever cross you mind? Today is the day to start questioning those thoughts. Are they really from God? Can God tell someone to take his or her own life?

The bible is clear in John 10:10, where it states that Jesus came to give life while the devil comes to steal, to kill and to destroy. It is,therefore, impossible for God to tell you to kill yourself. Only the devil and his host of demons can do this.

How can you fight against these thoughts? Your thoughts shape your life and so you should be careful the way you think for as a man thinketh so is he. Whatever action you take comes from a thought. The bible advices us to think on whatever things are pure, true, honest, just, lovely and that are of good report or virtue. (Philippians. 4:8). If you read and meditate on the word of God, the devil would have no place to put in junk ideas in your mind.

I personally like to walk around town meditating on a scripture. You can only think the bible if you read the bible. So, get busy and start reading and meditating on the word of God. I wish you all a nice day.
