Concerning people, you may be literally incredibly alone. Or you may not be alone in the least. You may have nobody around you. Or you may be in an enormous crowd. But regardless your circumstances, maybe you feel terribly, awfully, painfully, devastatingly, scarily, grievously, sorrowfully alone.
Regarding people, I am exceedingly alone as I write this message. I have been on the road for Jesus and ministry for years with my special needs ministry dogs and much of that time have been so very far away from family and friends. I am also alone in that I am middle-aged and single. I am further alone because following Jesus in this day and age means I do not do a lot of things this world does because they do not please God. And I FEEL so, so, so alone because I have had an incredibly emotionally painful life.
So if you are FEELING alone for any reason, I very much know the feeling. And if the truth be known, countless times over the years I FELT so alone I did negative and destructive and dangerous and even potentially deadly things to try to get rid of that alone feeling I so very much hate. God has taught me to stop doing that and to turn to Him instead.
Friend, if you are struggling with FEELING ALONE, I HAVE ENCOURAGEMENT FOR YOU. No matter how alone you may FEEL, and no matter how alone you may even BE concerning people, IF YOU BELIEVE IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AND HAVE SURRENDERED YOUR LIFE TO GOD AND HIS WAYS AND HIS WILL FOR YOU, you are NEVER EVER ALONE NOT EVER BECAUSE HE IS ALWAYS WITH YOU! That is right, THE LORD OF LORDS, KING OF KINGS, GOD ALMIGHTY is WITH YOU!
Not only is JESUS ALWAYS WITH YOU when you believe in Him and live in obedience to Him, BUT YOU WILL BE WITH HIM FOREVER! Through faith in Jesus and your life being devoted to Him, you are given a FOREVER RELATIONSHIP with God! Which means you are in truth NEVER ALONE!
Now please do not misunderstand me. God created us to have fellowship and relationships with people, and this is a vital part of our lives. And sometimes we need to make changes and reach out and take risks and be vulnerable and let others know we would like to be in their company etc. This can be really hard especially if we are shy or worried or have been hurt in the past etc. But spending time with others is absolutely critical, and we should desire especially to be in fellowship with other believers in Jesus. And with any and all people God wants us to spend time with. We should NOT isolate and purposely spend all our time alone without other people. God wants us to have relationships with other people!
BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT COMPANY WE CAN EVER BE IN, THE GREATEST FELLOWSHIP WE CAN EVER HAVE, THE MOST WONDERFUL RELATIONSHIP WE CAN EVER EXPERIENCE AND ENGAGE IN, THE MOST AWESOME INTIMACY WE CAN EVER HAVE – IS WITH JESUS! And we should VALUE AND INVEST IN AND ENJOY our PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD more than any other relationship in our lives.
Surrender your life totally to Jesus! Cry out to God in prayer! Pour your heart out to the Lord! Pour your feelings out to Him! Receive His love, comfort, peace, hope, kindness, compassion, fellowship, wisdom, etc.
Oh, friend, spend time in His presence! Read the Bible! Seek Him! Listen for the voice of His Holy Spirit speaking through the Bible to your heart and to you personally in line with the Bible! Sing to God! Praise and worship Him! Honor Him! Serve and obey Him! Glorify Him!
Meditate on Him and on the Bible! Dance for Him if you dance! Write for Him if you write! Create art for Him if you are led to do artwork! Whatever you do, do what makes God happy and offer it up to Him as an act of love and worship as you enjoy an intimate relationship with Him!
Spend time alone with God! Take walks with Him! Go on runs with Him! Watch the ocean as you think of His goodness! Think about Him! Experience Jesus! Enjoy Jesus!
And as a believer in Him, and as His follower, know you are NEVER ALONE because God is with you! Hallelujah, AMEN!
The devil might try to tell you that you are all alone. Do not believe the devil’s lies. BELIEVE THE TRUTH. If your heart and life are surrendered to the Lord Jesus Christ, FOREVER AND EVER YOU WILL NEVER BE ALONE! Do not let your FEELINGS convince you otherwise. THE TRUTH is GOD IS WITH HIS FOLLOWERS FOREVERMORE! Oh, hallelujah, REJOICE! Praise the Lord, AMEN!
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”” Joshua 1:9 NKJV
“”BEHOLD, THE VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD, AND BEAR A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL,” which is translated, “God with us.”” Matthew 1:23 NKJV
“…The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me All the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD Forever.” Psalms 23:1-6 NKJV
