“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”Psalm 139:13-16
Peace and good to all.
If my share my insights on the above passage from the Book of Psalm.
We are God’s creation. We are the works of God, and, we are created in God’s image and likeness. From our conception, to the day we are born, to our manhood and till our death, God know’s everything because He created us.
God is the originator of our life. From the moment we were secretly and passionately produced by our parents, when we were still a little life in our mother’s womb, God knows who we are and what we will be when we are born. God owns every human being’s right over human life, from the moment of conception until they are born. It is so unfortunate, however, that many times man wants to play God and determines for himself/herself what to do with the life of the unborn child. Hence, the abortion – the inward parts of a little life formed by our Lord and wove within his/her mother’s womb, is killed by a man thru abortion, putting no value on the life of the unborn, showing no reverence and respect to God, his creator. Man has forgotten that it is not he who creates but God.
God has the ownership rights over every human life, thus, who are we to take our own life. Even before we were conceived, God has a purpose for us. He decided to create us for a purpose and that is definitely not to take our own life. It is God who creates not us, hence, we do not have anyright to take it back. God gave this life to us, therefore, only God has the right to take it away from us.
Suicide is almost always due to depression. This demon of depression kills our mind, kills our heart, kills our body, then kills our soul. Let it be not forgotten that we have God, the creator of life, we have Jesus, whom we can turn to, to help us fight this demon in our heads and hearts who want us to take our own life.
Let it be not forgotten that God’s mercy and understanding are so great, so vast and beyond human understanding that no matter how sinful we are, that our enemy would taunt us and would want us to take our own life ‘to atone” for it, we should not yield for it, we should not listen to the taunt of the enemy. Remember that nothing can separate us from the love of God which is beyond measure, we just have to call HIM, call Jesus, ask for His mercy and compassion and He will help you out from the pit where you are at present. And, in Jesus, you will have new life, a peaceful life, without you taking your own life. That is God’s mercy and compassion. God is the author of life, the author of your life, of my life and of eternal life. Be with Jesus who gives light and life.
