“It’s not good for man to be alone” saith the Lord at the beginning of time. This truth has never changed in any creed, culture or generation. Being alone is different from being lonely. In fact, it is very possible to be lonely in a crowded place. Therefore, it is not a lack of numbers, but a feeling of abandonment.
We must be very careful how we interpret and accept the feelings we have. Feelings, first of all are easily changed and based on one’s disposition. Thus we can safely say that feelings and reality are not the same thing. For example, I may have felt quite lonely years ago at the passing of my father, yet, remembering that God declared His love for us in a promise that He will never leave nor forsake kept me grounded and comforted.
God’s Word is more proof, fact and truth than this reality itself. We have to elevate the Word of God to be more liberating than the word of a judge, more dependable than the word of a bank and more powerful than the word of a doctor. He uses an absolute word such as ‘never’ then that simply means, NEVER! Through consistent meditation and declaration of this spiritual medicinal truth, all feelings of loneliness shall depart.
I praise God that we doesn’t use words like could, should or maybe. He promises that if you do this He shall do this. At times, He does not even promise – where a conditionality is required; He just gives us pure truth, such as:
♡ I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
(Deut. 31:6, Matt. 28:20b, Heb. 13:5)
♡ The punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5b)
♡ Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. (Joel 2:32, Acts 2:21, Rom. 10:13)
We will continue this study tomorrow, in the meantime, let us meditate on His promises toward us.
