DO YOURSELF NO HARM from Mike Odeh's blog



" But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, “Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.” Acts 16:28


The Jailer wanted to take his own life when he realized he was in a precarious situation. He felt alone, he felt like a failure.  In an instant he was a dependable and responsible guy and in an instant all his confidence was gone, his honor was gone when he felt he had failed in keeping safe those who were committed to him for safe keeping!

But what he felt were in sharp contrast to the reality!

Regardless, he was ready to commit suicide based on the way he felt!


DO NOT TAKE YOUR OWN LIFE! THE REALITY IS DIFFERENT FROM THE WAY YOU FEEL RIGHT NOW! THE DEVIL IS TELLING YOU LIES THAT YOU ARE A FAILURE, THAT YOU ARE HOPELESS AND LIFE IS NOT WORTH LIVING FOR ANOTHER MINUTE!

That feeling of hopelessness and aloneness is a mirage! YOU ARE NOT ALONE! That was what made the Jailer change the course of his action. 

And we would soon realize, that this man who wanted to commit suicide had so much to live for!

He had a family to lead! He had a God to serve and a purpose to live for.

DO NOT TAKE YOUR OWN LIFE, THERE'S SO MUCH TO LIVE FOR!

YOU ARE NOT ALONE! THERE'S A DIVINE PURPOSE ATTACHED TO YOUR LIFE! You are loved! JESUS LOVES YOU!

The Way out of the hopelessness you feel right now is JESUS! Turn your life over to Jesus and be saved and be baptized into newness of life!

Do you feel alone, do you feel unloved, are you heartbroken, been bullied, feel worthless and like a failure? 

You are not alone! JESUS can turn your life around for good even right now!

"...Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" Acts 16:30


"So they said, " Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household." Acts 16:31


"...And immediately he and all his family were baptized...and he rejoiced, having believed in God with all his household." Acts 16:33-34


This too can be your experience, right now!
