Verse Of The Day : If a man dies, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come. Job 14:14

Thought of The Day : Faith invests in us the strength and grace to outlast challenges and troubles.

LISTEN : Wants to end your life? Relax and have faith in God. It’s going to be fine. “Calm down friend, I’m very sure that all will be fine soon”, says a friend to his ailing friend. Beloved, trouble is part of life. Hence, attempting to end your life because of pressure is a proof that you’re fighting the battles of life all alone. Pressure builds when we ignore God. But when we walk with Him He takes care of our troubles. The Bible says,

“Casting all your cares upon the Lord, for he cares for you.”

1Peter 5:7

God cares about you. So, be strong and courageous. You can’t survive the pressures of this life unless you’re determined to be courageous, patient, hopeful and resilient. Besides, you can’t express all of these virtues if you’re not willing to live by faith in God. No doubt, life will give you pressure, but faith in God will ease your burdens. Jesus said,

Come unto me, all you that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest...”

Matthew 11:28-30

Friend, don’t waste your life worrying about your problems, instead, spend your time in fellowship with the Spirit of God. When you bother yourself unnecessarily about life, you’ll wish to end it before it actually ends. So, don’t kill yourself because of problems. Your condition can’t be as bad as Job’s. Yet he said, “If a man dies, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come.”(Job 14:14). My dear, wait till your change comes. Remember, suicide is not the solution to your problems, God is. Be wise!

What Should We Do With This Message?
1. To survive the pressures of life, determine to be courageous, patient, hopeful and resilient.
2. Don’t kill yourself for what could be possibly fixed by patience and faith in God
3. Stop worrying yourself about what you can’t fix. Rather, trust God to help you.
4. When life gives you pressure, hand over the pressure to God through prayer and thanksgiving.

Prayer : Heavenly Father, you’re the God of comfort and grace. Help me to rely on You in times of troubles. In Jesus’ name, amen!

A Word Of Blessing : Today I speak on your life. Receive divine deliverance over evil and everything that oppresses your life, in Jesus’ name, amen.

Reflection : Pressure builds when we ignore God. But when we walk with Him He takes care of our troubles.

Quote : “Trouble is part of life. Hence, attempting to end your life because of pressure is proof that you’re fighting the battles of life without God.”
