You are Never Alone
He will never leave you or forsake you.Deuteronomy 31:6
Have you ever felt alone? We can be alone even though we are in a crowd of people and they don’t make us feel accepted. Life can have lonely moments for many different reasons, but what does God say about his people feeling alone?
God tells us that we are never alone and he doesn’t want us to feel alone. Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them, (John 14:23). We are never alone because the Father and Son are with us, and the Holy Spirit lives in us. The more we commune with the Lord and read his Word, and obey his will, the more we will experience his presences with us.
We need the presence of God with us, but we also need relationships. The Lord God said, “it is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him,” (Genesis 2:18). God created Eve as a wife for Adam, and they started the first family. We are created for relationships with family and outside of family, and that is why Christ established his church and calls us to fellowship. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts, (Colossians 3:16). Strong relationships occur within our earthly Christian family and with close friends in the church. God’s people are connected by the Holy Spirit who destroys all worldly barriers that Satan uses to separate people.
There is a difference between being alone and being lonely. The Lord recognizes we need time alone so we can clear our mind of worldly problems, and be with him and his Word. The more alone time we spend with the Lord, the less time we will feel lonely.
If we are aware of our divine purpose, it will help us avoid feeling alone. We are created to be guided by the Spirit who leads us in ministering to the world, and fills our life with opportunities to minister to others. We can attend church Bible studies, teach a Bible class, mission trips, send cards, praying for others, and many more ministries, if we pray for the Lord to open a door. When we minister to others, reflecting Gods love, our heart opens to receive more of God’s love. God created us to be light in this world and that is why serving the Lord we feel more fulfilled, more confident, more loved, more satisfied, and we tend to have better health. Serving the Lord also helps to overcome anger, depression, anxiety and loneliness.
Don’t try to overcome loneliness by staying busy, or depending on someone else, because loneliness comes from our heart and only God can fill our empty heart. Loneliness comes from feeling unloved and to truly overcome being loneliness; seek the Lord, obey his Word, be a light in this world, and be filled with God’s perfect love. This love from God also comes from close Christian friends and from your Christian family. However without the love of God in your heart, there will always be an emptiness in your soul leading you on a lifetime search in the world for love, and never finding. The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you–they are full of the Spirit and life. (Luke 6:63) The temporary things of the world can never satisfy your eternal soul.
Today be aware that the Lord loves you more than you can imagine, and he wants to bless you and lead you through a fulfilling life. Reflect Christ today by God’s love, confidence, and wisdom. Don’t entertain fear or loneliness from Satan, but chose to walk filled with peace and joy.
Prayer: Lord, keep me from ever being lonely, and to always be sustained by your love and the divine purpose for my life. Help me to remain close to you and to feel your presence today. I will walk today with your Words in my heart and on my lips. In Jesus name, Amen
