Suicide – The Devil’s Alternative

This generation seems to have a special tag on it. Suicide – that odd thing people do to end a life – ranks as the second leading cause of death for young people between the ages of 15 and 19. Every day, 11 people between the ages of 15 and 24 commit suicide. the fastest growing age group for suicide is between 10 and 14 years old. the majority of adolescents who die by suicide use a firearm. more young men take their lives than young women.

However, for every male suicide, three females will attempt to take their lives. despite these alarming statistics, God is more than capable of changing them. Satan is out to destroy this generation. he is deceiving young people into thinking that suicide is the answer to their problems. It’s not the solution; it’s only a way to lure you to an early grave. the answer to any situation comes from the Word, and it’s up to you to arm yourself with scriptures to beat the Devil at his game. It’s the only way that you can live your life to the fullest.

The Devil doesn’t want you to impact anyone’s life. he hates you because he hates who you represent: Jesus. As a result, he will always try to trick you into doing something that will ultimately harm you. he clouds your thinking so that you end up making bad choices. that way, he can destroy your witness as well as your self-esteem.

Satan knows that you were created in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 1:26-27). he also knows that if you would stand in the authority that has been given to you in Christ, you could dominate your circumstances and rule and reign in every area of your life. Because of your godly identity and potential, he wants to stop you at all costs.

The word, dominate, means to influence, control or rule by superior power or authority; to have dominion, supreme authority or control. God gave you the ability to control your own destiny by giving you the power to choose. Life is choice-driven (Deuteronomy 30:19); you live and die by the choices that you make. that means you have the ability to succeed, live out loud and dominate Satan by taking full authority over all of his wicked works, including depression, suicide, loneliness, negative words and feelings of worthlessness.

The Bible says that you will reap a harvest from the words that you speak. You have the ability to speak life over yourself. There are rimes when you will have to counteract what the enemy is saying to or about you by speaking what God says in His Word about you. You will also have to remind yourself that you are beautiful, capable and able to do anything, because you have God’s ability within you. You will have to remind Satan that you are not a failure. It’s up to you to release life from your lips by declaring God’s Word in faith.

Death and life are in the power of your tongue, and you’ll eat the fruit of your lips any day. Similarly, you are a dominator, not a victim. You must live out loud so that the world can see the outer manifestation of the fruit of God’s greatness inside of you.

Jesus, the greatest man to live on planet earth, chose to live out loud and make an impact on all those who were around him. As a result, there are millions of people around the world today living out loud because of the example he set.

Imagine where the world would be today if Jesus had given up after all of the things that he had faced. I don’t know about you, but I don’t even want to imagine it Because of Christ, you have been redeemed from the curse of death – it has no power over you. Choose today to walk in your redemption and don’t allow the enemy to trick you any longer.

Happiness is not an accident; nor is it something you wish for. Happiness is something you design and create. So make a decision to live your life out loud
