The man of God (David) asked this question in the book of Psalms, "Why are you disquieted within yourself, hope and trust in your God." For David himself had experienced many adversities and sorrows in his life time. He, like Joseph and Job and many others in the pages of scripture, had lived with and through numerous unbearable heartbreaks and losses; losses that would have been emotionally and mentally devastating to any human being. Such hurt and disappointment, some would consider foolishly of course, worthy of suicide. Yet, they anchored their soul to a rock: a rock higher than the storm, higher than the pain, higher than the disappointment and hurt, even greater than the enemy himself. They had a made up mind, 'I'll bless Him at all times, His praises shall continually be in my mouth," "though He slay me, yet will I trust Him," "what was meant for evil, God has turned for good."
If you're reading this and you're a believer in Christ Jesus, and it seems that maybe you thought that the circumstances you're facing are so unbearable, larger than life itself, please stop and consider these men who faced overwhelming odds, loss of loved ones, possessions, body riddled with pain, even betrayal by the closest of friends. Yet they refused to die, but chose to live. It doesn't matter what we're facing, God is greater. In spite of what many false teachers and preachers are espousing that suicide is acceptable with God, it is absolutely false and a lie from the enemy of your soul. I repeat, suicide is not the answer! The very meaning of the word 'Suicide' means the murder of oneself. And yes, contrary to popular belief it is a sinful and a selfish act, which doesn't bring glory to God in anyway. A close study of scripture shows that those in the bible that committed suicide ( King Saul, Ahithophel, Zimri, Judas Iscariot,) had actually lost trust and faith in God. They failed to magnify God bigger than the problem, bigger than disappointment, bigger than their sin, bigger than the circumstances they were facing. My brother and sister, hope in God! It was the Psalmist that wrote with the utmost confidence, "I will hope continually, and praise Him more and more." Psa 71:14
