Will God Help me not to try Suicide Again?

I’ve just gotten out of the hospital after trying to take my own life. Things are better with me now and I don’t plan to go down that road again, but how can I be sure I won’t? Will God help me?


A:

Yes, God will help you as you turn to Him and discover what it means to walk with Him every day. The Bible says, “No good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless” (Psalm 84:11).

How does God help us? First, He helps us by giving us the strength to do what is right. When we turn to Christ and ask Him to forgive us and help us, He comes to live within us by His Spirit. We are never alone when we know Christ, for God now dwells within us! He is with us every minute of the day, and He helps us as we turn in faith to Him. His Spirit encourages and helps us when discouragement or temptation comes our way. The Bible says, “The Spirit helps us in our weakness” (Romans 8:26).

He also helps us by reminding us that He loves us, and we are His children forever. If you forget everything else I say, I hope you will remember this: God loves you. He knows all about your struggles and failures, but He still loves you–and the proof is that He was willing to send His only Son into the world to die for you. Your life will never be the same once you realize how much God loves you.

Don’t face the future alone, or try to meet it only in your own strength. Instead, by a simple prayer of faith ask Christ to come into your life today–and He will. Then turn to Him every day and thank Him for His love and His constant presence with you.
