Scriptures Against Suicide

my_head_dark_space_300-webTAKE HOPE! You have options that you cannot see right now! It is not that you do not have options, it is just that you cannot see them. Evil forces cloud our minds from seeing the hope of a better day. Only the word of God can strip away the darkness so that we can see the brightness. You are in the dark simply because you cannot see the light. Hurt and hopelessness work together to block the light. The light is actually all around you. MAKE YOURSELF to read the following scriptures, even if you feel absolutely nothing. The deadness will leave. Hope and light will seep into your heart. Do it!

Anyone who is among the living has hope. Ecclesiastes 9:4

Suicidal thoughts only survive within an outlook of complete hopelessness. Hope, true Bible hope, is the best antidote for hopelessness. Take the hope that is resident in the promises of God and put it into your heart. Your outlook will change. God has a wonderful habit of raising individuals out of impossible situations. He enjoys doing it, and it brings Him glory. The Bible is full of stories of people, just like you, that were delivered out of extremely dangerous and potentially embarrassing situations – including His own son, Jesus. You are no different. Reject the guilt and shame, and absorb His love, forgiveness, and hope. You will make it out of this situation! The darkness will not last. That is the real truth, but for it to work, you must see it as truth and believe it. This is where reading, speaking, and meditating God’s promises comes in. They will grow hope and belief in your heart. ALSO, PLEASE READ THIS – Helping Others Is God’s Prescription for Depression.

Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down (depression), but a good word cheers it up. Proverbs 12:25 Holman Christian Standard Bible

Allow God’s good word to cheer you up. God’s word is the only true source of hope because it shows the will of Him who can help. Allow the hope of a good result to seep back into your heart. Suicide is the extreme dead-end of hopelessness. Allowing thoughts of hopelessness to control your thinking narrows and darkens your path till suicide appears to be the only option, BUT IT IS NOT. There are plenty of other solutions; you just can’t see them now because hopelessness has blinded you to them. The hope that is resident in the promises of God will open the eyes of your heart, and you will be able to see again. It will get brighter.

Suicide only appears like an option when the devil has hidden all your other options. Allow the Bible to open your eyes.

You will have to work at it. You will not feel like it. Do it anyway, your life depends on it, and contrary to what you are feeling, YOUR LIFE IS WORTH IT. Suicide is a permanent solution to an intense but short term problem. Don’t do it!

“Do not be a fool–why die before your time?” Ecclesiastes 7:17b

This may sound harsh but the hard truth is this – the thought to end one’s life is foolish – and once you step back and see it for what it really is, you will understand. Do not despair; it will get better. The power to deliver is resident in His word. Put it to work for you. Relax and make yourself read these scriptures and let God’s word do the rest:

You are my lamp O Lord; the Lord turns my darkness into light. 2 Samuel 22:29

But you will not need to fight! Take your places; stand quietly and see the incredible rescue operation God will perform for you, Oh people of Judah and Jerusalem! Don’t be afraid or discouraged! Go out there tomorrow, for the Lord is with you! 2 Chronicles 20:17

You have granted me life and favor, and Your care has preserved my spirit. Job 10:12

I will lie down in peace and sleep, for though I am alone, Oh Lord, you will keep me safe. Psalms 4:8

For You, O Lord, will bless the righteous; with favor You will surround him as with a shield. Psalm 5:12

No one whose hope is in you will ever be put to shame. Psalm 25:3

You are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Psalm 25:5

You are my hiding place from every storm of life; You even keep me from getting into trouble! You surround me with songs of victory. I will instruct you (says the Lord) and guide you along the best pathway for your life; I will advise you and watch your progress. Don’t be like a senseless horse or mule that has to have a bit in its mouth to keep it in line! Psalms 32:7-9

The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. A righteous man may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all. Psalm 34:18, 19

If the Lord delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm; though he stumbles, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand. Psalm 37:23, 24

Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. Psalm 42:5

Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall. Psalm 55:22

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. Psalm 62:5

You answer us with awesome deeds of righteousness, O God our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas. Psalm 65:5

For you have been my hope, O Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth. Psalm 71:5

But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more. Psalm 71:14

I have put my hope in your word. Psalm 119:74

Sustain me according to your promise, and I will live…. Psalm 119:116a

The LORD upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down. Psalm 145:14

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3

Surely, there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off. Proverbs 23:18

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusts in Thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength. (Perfect means complete. If I keep my part of the promise by staying steadfastly focused on the Lord Jesus Christ, He will keep His promise to give me His perfect peace. Isaiah 26:3-4 See also Philippians 4:6-7 below)

And the ransomed of the Lord will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away. Isaiah 35:10

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

No, I will not abandon you or leave you as orphans in the storm – I will come to you. John 14:18

I am leaving you with a gift – peace of mind and heart! And the peace I give isn’t fragile like the peace the world gives. So don’t be troubled or afraid. John 14:27

We are saved by trusting. And trusting means looking forward to getting something we don’t yet have – for a man who already has something doesn’t need to hope and trust that he will get it. But if we must keep trusting God for something that hasn’t happened yet, it teaches us to wait patiently and confidently. Romans 8:24-25

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Romans 15:4

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold. 2 Corinthians 3:12

Nevertheless God, that comforts, those that are depressed, comforted us by the coming of Titus; And not by his coming only, but by the consolation wherewith he was comforted in you, when he told us your earnest desire, your mourning, your fervent mind toward me; so that I rejoiced the more. II Corinthians 7:6-7

I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. Ephesians 1:18-19

There is one body and one Spirit – just as you were called to one hope when you were called–one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:4-6

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17

But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:4–7

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. James 4:10

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 2 Peter 1:2–3

The Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials. 2 Peter 2:9

  • Queacha

    I’m reading this book by Robert S. McGee as I read your entry, it’s titled THE SEARCH FOR SIGNIFICANCE, SEEING YOUR TRUE WORTH THROUGH GOD’S EYES. The first chapter will provide insight on what you’re currently experiencing

  • Roci

    My name is Roci, im 25 years old and ive been battling with deppression and GAD (general anxiety disorder) ever since I can remember im not gonna tell my whole life story and every detail of it but I came here bc I have a son who is turning 5 this year and he is the only reason I consider fighting the desire to just end my life…. I come from a very loving family and a lot of strong religious influence that I am grateful for but…growing up I was bullied just about everyday ive always felt like an outcast, I am extremely talented in performing arts almost made it big but was robbed bc of financial reasons, my tenage years were awful bc of a stepfather I saw and experianced more than any teenager should, my family has always struggled w money so I learned at a young age how to work hard ive had about a hundred jobs since I was 15! I have a lot of goals to help myself and others but I feel like I work myself to death and get nowhere. I feel completely alone I have been dating my first real boyfriend for about a year we should not be together bc we just dont get along too well but neither of us want to let go for our own reasons…. I just lost my home almost my car racked up about 10,000 in debt my credit keeps me from getting a lot of decent jobs I have just fallen into this black whole and I dont know how to get out…. Im a fighter I donr give up easily but im so tired…. I have attempted suicide twice before…. for various reasons the first time I was 15 and I just took a whole bottle of pain reliever ( had no education behind how to take ones life at all) it just knocked me out for a while….the 2nd time was after my child was born I again attempted to overdose but stopped myself bc of my child. …. Again I am battling with just ending everything I have lost so many in my life I feel like I have no one and no one who would understand me but God , but bc of what ive been going through quit honestly lately God has not been a priority. How can I get my relationship back , God will not keep forgiving someone who strands away for a little while and then wants to mend things how can God still love me when ive been ignoring him ….I WANT HELP….. I dont want to end like this..but im so lost I have no idea what to do or where to start!

    My friend’s teenage son just tried to commit suicide. He’s been in the hospital for 3 days as a result, mental health hospital, but he still wishes he were dead. He doesn’t believe in God, but my friend does and she/ we are constantly praying for him and that the spirits would be removed from him.

    Are there any good resources to share with a teen or teen parent on suicide that are biblically based? Even though he doesn’t want to hear any scriptures.

  • Carlin

    As I read all of these verses I wonder why my life seems to prove them all wrong. I’m a christian, and have been trying to seek God for a while now. I was blessed with an incredible, Godly relationship with a wonderful loving person, my life was coming together. Then God took it all away. Her decision to leave me was based on lots of prayer and mentorship (she had good reason too) I’ve been struggling with porn, and failing to put God first in my life. But now I’ve lost all that I cared about, I was so close to putting a ring on her finger. In this tough time, my other “christian” friends have pretty much completely abandoned me, I don’t blame them, I’m a very selfish person. Now I realize that those scriptures aren’t true of life on this earth. God will greatly bless us in the end, but there is nothing for me in this life. It is nothing but ups and downs, and the higher the up, the harder the crash when it goes back down. All I want is to feel love, intimate and complete love. I want to love back as well, but I guess I don’t do so well at that because I’m so selfish. So what do I do? I contemplate suicide, because this life sucks, and even if/when it gets better, it will just crash again, always harder than before. I’m just ready to die, I’m ready for heaven. Yes I could just believe that there really is hope on this earth for a good life, but that’s just fooling myself, I’ve done it several times before, and at every crash, I realize more and more that nothing changes, no matter how much I hope and believe that this life could be better in the long run. Why am I posting this on here? Because maybe I’m missing something, maybe there is something that I’ve not tried before that would actually give me a full, abundant life on this earth. You tell me.

    • Carlin – No, you are actually proving that all the verses are true. God did not take it all away. You said it yourself. It was your own selfishness that drove the blessings away. Do you think you can be an extravagantly selfish person and still receive the blessings of God, and have loving people around you? It does not work like that. There are consequences to sin and selfishness. God is truly merciful but He is not an enabler.

      The Gospel is more than just changing things around you for the better. Of course, it is that, but it is mostly about the change inside of you that makes you better for those around you. You have to care enough about that loving girl to not act selfish, and if you don’t, she leaves. And if she does, it is not God’s fault or doing.

      God can put it all back together, but not with you doing the same things as before – you undoing all of His doing. People living primarily for themselves are going to have the ups and downs and the unsatisfying misery that you mention. It does not have to be that way, but it will take a change of heart and a change of mind. God can do that too.

      And don’t think that suicide is the answer. I don’t know where you are spiritually and you might not like where you end up. You cannot just hope and believe (it is actually not true believing) and then do whatever selfish thing you want and have Heaven on earth. And then blame it on God.

      You need to really give your life to Jesus Christ, and let Him change you on the inside. You also need to ask and allow the Holy Spirit to fill your heart. Otherwise, you will be the same, feel the same, and end up the same as you are now. You are not a victim. You are simply receiving the result of your choices and lifestyle. I know this is tough but it is all true. I mean no disrespect. I am telling you the truth because I do respect you. No bull. This is not a game. God’s grace is sufficient but you have to want it and walk in it.

    • rick

      Carlin, I read your cry for help. I believe I can help you. So lets go over each issue. First you said that you read all the verses about how God promises to help you, but that you do not see Him doing anything in this life for you, especially since you have been a christian for a while. It all seems futile to you. But Carlin, where else can you go, but to the Lord ? He has the words of eternal life ! He promises to help in this life, we must keep believing Him , no matter how dire the situation looks. If there was another way to life, you could take that route. But Jesus died to bring you life, no one else ever has done this for Carlin. You said that you had a very special relationship with a wonderful girl, but that she left you because you were struggling with porn. And you really did not blame her for leaving you, because of it. Listen. whether it is porn, hate, gluttony, lying, whatever; it is all sin. And God promises to help us in dealing with our sins. He promises to work in us both to WILL and to DO of His good pleasure. He is the one who changes our heart. If we could do it ourselves, then Jesus did not need to die on the cross, and we would not need the Holy Spirit to help us along. Trust God’s word to help you overcome porn and every other sin in your life . Remember, He promises to help us, and even though it seems He is not doing anything for us in this life. We must keep confessing His word, and believe that He is helping us , even now ! It is our duty to love the Lord with all our heart, mind and strength. Keep confessing His word , no matter what, and we will reap a harvest in due time , if we do not faint. This life is a test to see if we will believe and continue to believe God’s word. As for your friends leaving you ; I do believe it is their job to keep praying for you, because your life is at stake. Also, I do not know for sure, but maybe they did not leave you , but maybe you left them. As for your selfishness. You are not a selfish person in the name of Jesus. That person , the selfish Carlin was crucified on the cross with Jesus. Now you are a new person. washed in the blood of the Lamb. Confess what He says about you , agree with what He did for you . And He will help you along , you will find selfishness begin to being less and less a part of you . Apply every sin in your life, in this way , to the cross , and God will make your way successful. Once again, we must believe that God IS ! and that He IS a rewarder to those that seek Him. Don’t give up Carlin. God is your only hope in this life, what else do you have ??? Don’t give up your only hope ! Well , I have taken up a lot of space on this site, so if you need a friend that will stick with you in your challenges, you can email me at [email protected] , or I will respond along with others standing with you on the faith mechanics site.

  • Christopher de Vidal

    I know someone tempted with suicide. I thought about telling him Revelation 21:4: “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:4 ESV)

    But the more I thought about it, I saw it was unwise. It might accidentally tempt him to go to that place. Just something to keep in mind.

  • Brian

    I myself just recently fell into deep depression all caused by my action,s or thought pattern,s which are alway,s negative.It is so true if you let the mind travel to ugly destination,s that,s were you end up.It,s a pattern of an addict to want instant gratification now that I’ve destroyed my feel good receptor,s I seek the same gratification from God to relieve me off all negative thought,s!!! I know suicide is not the answer and that Christ died for our sin,s!!! Life truly is a gift and I,m not alone in my sadistic thinking,as for me I shall wait on The Lord and continue to pray daily!!!

    • Yoli

      Brian keep praying. I encourage you to get into a bible group study. Try to get involve in a Christian church where you can volunteer in church activities.The more you keep yourself active in church or help people that are in need. God will meet your need. The Spirit of God says:
      No, I will not abandon you Brian or leave you as orphan in the storm – I will come to you. John 14:18
      God bless you Brian.

  • K.Green

    Good morning brother Derek christopher ,just wanted you to know GOD LOVES YOU .Have a blessed and prosperous year.Keep up the great work you are doing MIGHTY MEN and WOMEN of GOD.THIS IS MINISTRY!!!!

  • derek christopher

    I think God may not love me anymore through my sins..
    So I feel no hope

    • The Bible says that “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (I John 1:9 KJV)

      That voice of guilt and condemnation is not God speaking, but rather it is the devil continuing to steal your hope. With no hope comes no vision of the future. It is a lying spirit. You must work to replace that ‘voice’ with another, from the Bible. The voice of acceptance, support, and a bright future.

      Be bold to lean on His mercy (Hebrews 4:15, 16). Look at this article – Mercy – Bending the Rules of God. And read this book – Receiving God’s Mercy – A Testimony of Healing. It is by my Pastor, and it is about mercy and healing. He was given 90 days to live and that was about 15 years ago.

      You will make it. You are not alone and God has NOT forsaken you! God is faithful and good. He always desires to choose reconciliation over justice. God bless, Rex

  • deb

    thank you for remembering me FaithMechanic. I am still struggling but trying to get through it. I have read and reread bible verses to give me strength. My mind is all over the place. mostly bad but some good. I have called the suicide hot line and they gave me some good resources. found a christian chat room and talk with them which is helpful. keep me in your thoughts and prayers, thank you…deb

    • Yoli

      :) Deb :) we are praying for you. We believe Father God will heal you. He knows you are hurting. Keep praying declaring God’s Word and watch what will happen. You will start feeling better. Laugh is good for the soul. I love to sing so I get on YouTube and worship the Lord through a song of Praise. Here is one song that is one of my favorites.
      God bless you this is only a season you will get over this depression.Declare His Word!
      Love Yoli :) Jesus Is My Life!!!

      • deb

        Thank you for your concern. I am still here. Trying the best I can. I have found a couple of bible study cat rooms and visit them daily for hours. I dont know how im going to pay my bills, that scares me the most. Its what drives me to still surf suicide sites. My life has no purpose even though I know GOD has one for me. I keep repeating that over and over in my head. My chest pounds and I sometimes wish just to have a heart attack and get it over already. I am so confused and lost, trying to be found. My 25 yr marriage is over we were together 30yrs though, left me for a younger woman. I feel so alone and lost. I have family and they care but they cant help my mind only GOD can do that. Thanks for listening and please pray for me. deb

  • Deborah

    I am very much in the same situation as Deb. Coincidentally, my first name is Deborah. I have been to psychiatrists, individual therapy, group therapy and short-term hospitalization for suicidal thoughts. I am on my third prescribed anti-depressant and yet I still have these thoughts pulling me to suicide even as I continue to try to find comfort from the Bible. I find myself thinking that am unable to be productive member of society as I am unable to find a job to be able to provide for myself making me a burden to my family members. I apply for several jobs weekly (both where I live and out-of-state) for which I am qualified and receive either no response to my applications or am told I am too qualified. At this point, I am giving myself 6 months to find employment. After that, I am not sure what I will do.

    • deb

      Deborah, Yes it seems our life is about the same. I still have not found a job and live on my sisters couch. I have no health insurance so I cant take my meds anymore which only make my thoughts worse. I surf the bible on line and have several people praying for me. But I still have lots of suicidal thoughts and surf the internet on suicide. I then turn to bible verses for more strength. I go back and forth, but i guess its a good thing i am still here. Sometimes my chest pounds so hard i wish it would just explode and end it all that way. Lets pray together. deb

      • Yoli

        Deb and Deborah I have to tell you there was a time I went through depression. But I had a choice to not let those voices of defeat get me down.Those voices come from Satan I refuse to listen to those put downs.Do not stay in bed. Get up and go volunteer at the church. If you see someone in need go and help them. Scripture tells us in Proverbs that when you refresh someone else’s soul.God will refresh your soul. I try to live by this scripture everyday. My life has changed its a practice of thinking positive and aligning God’s Word to your mind and speaking the Word of God out and seeing and feeling revived by God’s Life. You both are focusing on yourselves. Look around you life is what you make of it. If you speak words of defeat or negative thoughts thats what will be the outcome. Start speaking positive get up in the morning with a song of praise to the King of Kings who is Almighty God.Yes!!! Yes!!! Your power is on what you say and think. In the morning and night time kneel and pray start by thanking God for all He has done in your life and all He is going to do.Then say… This is the day the Lord has made I will rejoice and be glad in it. Something good is going to happen to me today. My Lord Jesus is going to bless me with good health, a great job, great friends, I am loved by God. No weapon form against me will prosper. I am blessed with the mind of Christ. Therefore, I will walk in victory. The blood of Jesus protects my mind and my body. God is on my side this is only a season I am going through. I will be victorious and I will serve the Lord. Thank You Lord Jesus for supplying all my needs. I am blessed with your favor. I will get a call from a job soon and this depression is gone back into the Lake of Fire where it belongs. It will not come back into my life again. I am healed from depression. Jesus has a job already lined up for me. It’s coming in Jesus name. Jesus we Praise You!!! To God be the glory, honor, power and authority in the Mighty name of Jesus Amen and Amen!!!
        Do you believe in your heart Deb and Deborah that God’s Word is a Promise to you.Then, get ready shake of those doubts and receive His blessings start thanking Him. Remember watch what comes out of your mouth. Your words have power speak His Word over your life. God bless you with good health and favor.
        Your sister in Christ I love you both.

          yoli i am still struggling please pray for me. i am so messed up

          • Deb – We will and we are praying for you. Do the best you can on controlling what you think about and what comes out of your mouth. Speak the word of God over yourself as much as you can. WE speak deliverance over you in Jesus Name. You will get out of this darkness. You will make!! Don’t ask why it has happened, that will lock you in. Ask and seek for the way out. That is where the answer is. In God’s grace and power. He is there all around you. Just learn how to access Him. You are not alone. God loves you and we love you.

  • Joshua

    These quotes are all well and good, but the fact remains that my prayers go unanswered. I am a failure and no supplication has alleviated this. In the end something in me was simply unable to succeed or live or ever experience happiness. I won’t say God failed me outright, but I’m not going to thank him for a life that wasn’t worth living and more importantly I didn’t ask for. I do not know why man is sentenced to life, but I suppose that is not ours to know. I would like to thank whoever put together this web page though and hope it helps others.

    • Sara

      Josh – I know how you feel. I felt that way for a whole year last year! I felt that God abandoned me as well and wanted to end it all. Thankfully, I thank every God every day, I didn’t. First of all, Satan is telling you so many lies. You are NOT a failure. You are a Beloved son of God and NOTHING can ever change that. NOTHING. You maybe have really messed up, but our God is a God of second chances (I can say that firsthand). I see you are longing to THRIVE. If you do suffer from clinical depression/ suicidality – please seek professional help ASAP. “I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans to give you a future and a hope.” …. It is true! It may not happen over night, but the tunnel/the darkness does end (even if its a VERY LONG tunnel), but suicide is FOREVER. God is still with you – I promise you, even when He seems so far away – you will see this more clearly as time goes by, looking back. Your life is worth living, because you are wanted and needed! The world needs you because it needs Christ, and you belong to Christ!!! You may not want to exist, but God does and He brought you here out of His love and His desire for you to know Him, love Him, and serve Him and to one day be in heaven… but not any time soon… we are not the master of whether we are created/go into nothingness/ live/die “None of us lives as His own, and none of us dies as His own, for while we live we are responsible to God and when we die, we die as His servants”… I pray that you may not see life as such a curse. When you are very depressed, it appears this way, but believe me, you will not always feel this way. Seek help and follow through with it. Tell a trusted family/friend how you feel. And keep on keeping on. I assure you of my thoughts and prayer tonight.

  • deb

    thank you for yours prayers. I am trying to get better with God, but satan takes over my mind. I look up scriptures regarding suicide will god forgive me

  • deb

    My life is in such a turmoil. Help me stop not wanting live any more. I drown myself in bible versus daily to help me get better with God, and for him to put his grace on me. End my pain and fears.

    • Deb – We will pray for you. You will figure out what is happening. Seek God on it and wait quietly before Him. But also, realize that depression and suicide are demon spirits, and for that it does not have to make sense. Read this – Depression Is a Spirit – It Must Be Fought with the Word of God.

      Stay in the Bible. Confess the scriptures. Don’t stop believing God. But seek Him and speak to the issues in Jesus Name. We will too. We love you. Suicide is not an answer. You are not alone and in God you do have viable options. You will have a great life. God has your deliverance and path.

      • deb

        Be careful what you say Deb. if you speak words of discouragement you will be discourage. If you speak positive and speak the word of God over your life. You will see your life start to change. You will get a job and you will be a happy again. God is a God of second, third and many more chances. He never leaves us we leave Him. But He will never forsakes us. NEVER!!! Here are several songs you can worship Jesus. GET INTO HIS PRESENCE.
        Jesus loves you!
        In His Grip of Grace,

        Jesus Is Lord!!!

  • Imtrulyhurt

    Faith mechanic, I tried calling a suicide, I’ve tried talking to God, I mean, I’ve tried it all! Do you think that you can be set up by God, for instance in order for Jesus’s will to be done someone had to betray him. Judas was the one who got picked to betray Jesus. Even if it wasn’t judas it would’ve been someone else. I’m sorta at the point where I feel it’s my purpose to hurt so bad and to have these thoughts. It’s been a long time of being in the wilderness. Others around me don’t even know what’s going on. I hide the pain. A lot if people I knw, want to know your business, just to have something to talk about. My husband has cheated on me countless times, he doesn’t take care of me, he lies to me, and the list goes on. Meanwhile I sit and I encourage other people, it’s almost like I believe for them but not myself. I feel very overwhelmed right now, my thoughts are all over the place and very disorganized (as you can tell from the way I’m writing this

    • God is not setting you up for hurt or to fail. The devil is setting you up, by using situations and people around you, and by tormenting you with oppression on the inside. Deception is meant to deceive, to deceive you into thinking: 1-God is doing it because of whatever reason (he uses many). 2-No one really cares or loves you, 3-It will always be like this, this is your lot in life, 4-Nothing you can do will matter, 5-The depression will sap away all motivation to do anything even if you thought it would matter, and the list goes on.

      God loves you and will intervene, but you must help him with faith and a changed turn around in your thinking. Start slow, but start. Speak the confessions at the bottom on the page on the right – Change your Life. It does not matter if you feel anything or even believe what you are saying, you will, just DO IT. The ship will slowly start to turn, and turn it will. WE LOVE YOU. I sent you an email..

      • Imtrulyhurt

        I have to admit, that the email you sent it to, is not mine. I don’t know who’s it is. My email has my name In it, and I don’t want anyone who knows me knowing I’m having these thoughts, so it’s someone else’s email. My apologies, that is deceitful. I want help, but I don’t want to expose myself as being weak, and if I decide not to end it all, I don’t want it to ruin my profession. I honestly don’t want you to think that I’m just trying to have a pity party…it really is/was a cry for help. So thank you for caring enough to respond…I didn’t see the words I’m to say/repeat.

        • No problem with the email. If you want to chat, send me an email, our address in on our About page. The confession I mentioned has a link to it on one of my other replies.

          Here is the summary: Hope is the answer to depression and suicidal thoughts, and true long term hope only comes from God. People will let you down, you will let you down, and life will let you down, but God will not let you down. But He will let you live your life your way if you want. In Him the downer stuff can be processed and overcome, outside of Him we are on our own. Being In Him is the only way to truly stand up for yourself. God bless you, we love you.

          • Imtrulyhurt

            FaithMechanic, you have no idea of how much you have encouraged me…I feel a slight turn around right now. Even as I’m writing the enemy keeps talking and telling me what I am not. I’ve been dealing w/this spirit for years now. Yesterday, it consumed me. I went to church today…I’m actually a praise and worship leader…I didn’t do praise and worship because I didn’t want to hinder the flow of God. I’m fighting, I’m fighting hard. Thank you, and I love you too! I would love to keep the communication going thru email…give me a few days to give it to you. Thank you again for the nonjudgmental approach, it means a lot!

          • I am so glad. You will make it. The ship is turning. God is moving in your heart, and He will soon move in your situation. Now, I ask you to pray for me. I must to do some hard business things tonight. I need his wisdom and mercy and favor and grace. He is more than enough for all of us. God bless you. We are so so happy for you. There is always someone who cares.

    • Francois

      God loves you all so much! He is the hope that never falters! God bless you all. God is the hope of glory (Col 1:27)! May you be overcome by His love for you and filled with His peace!

  • Imdeeplyhurt

    Somebody help I want to commit suicide right now.

    • Don’t do it. Depression is the feeling of hopelessness. It makes you blind so you cannot see a good possible future. All you can see is the terrible currant or past stuff that it wants you to see. It is a spirit sent to kill you by talking you into killing yourself. He cannot kill you directly so he tries to talk you into it. Don’t, it’s not a good solution. It is not the answer.

      It is a lying spirit sent to destroy you. Don’t let it. Don’t give it the satisfaction. I will send a better note later. I cannot now. God bless you we love you. I care about you and I am not alone. Others care about you and love you but you can not feel that because the spirit of depression will not allow it. Just know that they do. God loves you, stand up and work with Him. Just for know do not do anything. It will get better. You MUST believe that!! Rex

  • Connie Brock

    God forgives sin. Suicide is self-murder. God can forgive that sin as well. I was a widower at age 25. My husband knew God and had Him living in his heart. He was overcome with trials and tribulations and was a new Christian and felt abandoned, hopeless, and that it would be better if he was not a burden on me and his other family members. His parents took it the worse. He shot himself and lived a short time after in a coma state. I believe that God talked to him and reassured him at that time that he was going to be with God very shortly. I went to grief and suicide counseling for two years following his death. I, as well as his family members felt that we could have done something, said something, or anything to help him. But, when the devil gets on your back and does not let up, then it is hard to handle. The Bible says that God will not put on us more than we can bear. God is also the giver and taker of life. It does not matter where you are, who you are with, what you are doing, when God calls your name out of his Book, then you are gone. So, suicide is no different. God is in control, no matter how damaged the body is or how someone tries or did kill him/herself. God allows things to happen everyday to good people. The bottom line is that no matter how we die, GOD TAKES US. Jesus went into the pit and took the keys of life and death from Lucifier. He still has the keys today!

      Your Words Just touched me.. I see God through your words.

      May God bless your Heart

    • dolly

      I really do feel your words, And “empathetic” for your lose. But we cannot honestly believe that suicide is justifiable. Suicide is completely unexceptable in the kingdom of glory. It is in the word. Read Peter, Psalms 112, Ecclesiastes 9. No matter how we justify it, it is wrong in the eyes of our Lord. Especially supposingly knowing and having God in our lives.(it becomes a done deal) Because if you know HIM and believe HIM then you would trust HIM. As Christians we need to stop playing these games with the Father. Because just like any other dad, HE gets a bit annoyed with us and how we try to manipulate things (who do we think we are kidding). Killing yourself is wrong. It is a slap in the face. God sent his ONLY SON to DIE FOR US AND ALL OUR PAIN, TRIALS, TRIBULATIONS, SUFFERING, SINS EVERYTHING. And how do we thank HIM? Taking no value to what he died for us for… LIFE. HE DIED So WE MAY have lifE LIFE. He is a loving and forgiving God, but lets look at this through Gods eyes. Do we REALLY BELIEVE CHRIST WILL ALLOW THAT TYPE OF CHAOS around HIS KINGDOM and Father? His Father is probably saying ‘look at what I gave you up for Son.’ You think Jude is chillin’ in heaven because he was a disciple? There is no easy pass in this matter it is written. This is a verrrrrrrrrrrry delicate subject especially for those who are directly involved, but the word is the word. We as children of God need to stop trying to change the word so we can “feel” better. I should also point out that I have been suicidal for 10 years. So I know the feelings first hand. But i know God IS the GREATEST. Greater is HE who is in me than he who is in the world. This is knowing God…to respect HIM and knowing HE is able no matter what the circumstances. Not to dismiss HIS grace and mercies by doing the worst. I am not sympathetic, but I am empathetic of this by nature.

    I Declare

    Joel Osteen 2012

    Our words have creative power. Any time you speak something, either good or bad; you give life to what you are saying. Scripture says, “We will eat the fruit of our words.” That means you will get exactly what you’ve been saying. You are prophesying your own future. That’s why it’s so important to send your words out in the direction you want your life to go. You can’t talk defeat and expect to have victory. You can’t talk lack and expect to have abundance. You will produce whatever you say.

    Are you declaring the blessing of God over your life? Are you speaking His promises? Have you ever noticed that many of His promises are in the past tense? For example, in Ephesians God says, “I have blessed you with every spiritual blessing.” In Colossians He says, “I have made you worthy.” In Psalms He says, “I have surrounded you with favor as a shield.” These are all past tense, like it’s already happened. In order to activate His blessing, you have to come into agreement with what God has already declared about you. That’s faith!

    Maybe you don’t necessarily feel blessed today. A lot of things may be coming against you in your family, finances or health. But that doesn’t change the Word of God. Circumstances don’t change what God says about you. However, what God says about you can change your circumstances. You are the deciding factor. Instead of talking about your circumstances, be bold and say, “God, if You say I’m blessed, then I believe I’m blessed! My checkbook may not say I’m blessed. The economy may not say I’m blessed. The medical report may not say I’m blessed. But God, I know You are the ultimate authority, and if You say I’m blessed, then I declare that I am blessed!”

    When you get into agreement with God like that in your thoughts, words and actions, it opens supernatural doors and sets the blessing in motion. It allows Him to release the promises that already have your name on them! You can pull it out of the unseen spiritual realm over into the physical, seen realm. That’s what the Bible means when it says, “God speaks of nonexistent things as if they already existed.”

    I want you to live the abundant, blessed, joy-filled life that Jesus came to give you and understand that the power of your words is a major key. That’s why I’ve written my new book, I Declare – 31 Promises to Speak Over Your Life. I want you to bless your future one day at a time, one month at a time. My hope is that you’ll pick up a copy and take just a moment each day to bless your future with one of the faith-filled declarations. I Declare. So order your copy today and begin to declare God’s blessing in every area of your life!

    I’m not surprised people commit suicide. I see the words written in these comments, but all I get out of it is a combination of confusion and frustration. If God wants me, he knows where to find me.

  • @ William great response~ Let me say first that its so easy for others to judge suicide and twist Gods word.. many will say that there is no chance to ask for forgiveness therefore they are doomed to hell so does that mean those who die suddenly without time to ask for forgiveness.. will go to hell?? also no one knows the persons conversation with God during this time and second of all most who are healthy would not take their life God has special love for those with mental Illness~sucide is not a sin it is a disease of the mind it is n ot our job to play God i can tell you from my own personal experience dealing with my son who took his life at 29 Oct 23rd 2011 who suffered from depression PTSD from his time in the war in iraq as well as the bullying that was done by his father & Step mother that stripped his spirit, in which a week after his death God gave me conformation of where my son is.. through a chain of events that took place a week after his passing First off God allowing a visit from my son and my mother who died the year before and their message was to let me know they were ok they are with each other and the biggest message of all was to stay close to God in which there was no time and filled with so much love and peace beyond human expression then later that night out of the blue someone i didnt even know sent me an email explaining where Jesus is when we lose someone to suicide.. i have tried to reply and it wont go through.. then the very next day a guy who knew my son who is a man of God and didnt know where i lived showed up at my door and wanted me to know that a week before his death my son had excepted Jesus into his Heart God has his reasons for things to happen his ways are higher then ours and his thoughts are higher then ours and the gravest thing anyone can do is take out of the bible words that are not led by the Holy Spirit and twist them up remember Satan knows the scripture better then any of us and will use scripture to turn people away from God he pulled this on Jesus in which of course it did not work.. cause why he knew his Father The bible cant even express the magnitude of Gods Love, mercy & Grace.. i will share what was sent to me…

  • Lisa

    We must repent of any type of sin in order to be saved. No one sin is greater or worse than the other. Sin is sin. Repent and you will be saved. If we die “suddenly” we may not have the option to repent. Repentance is the key to be saved.

  • william verdell

    what about Saul the first king of isreal who committed suicide but was told by Samuel ( a true prophet of God )that he and his sons would die and that he and his sons would be with him where he was. we know Samuel certainly wasn’t being tormented, he wasn’t in the flames if Saul who committed suicide was with him ( not being tormented )then how could suicide be a sin that would cause u not to be saved, but Saul was?.
