Psalm 25:16 & 17
“Turn to me and have mercy, for I am alone and in deep distress.
My problems go from bad to worse. Oh, save me from them all!”
The feeling of being lonely ties back into our self-worth. How I value myself and what value I believe others have assigned or given to me directly affects my relationship to loneliness. In our deepest moments of loneliness and isolation, thoughts come to our mind telling us, “no-one values me,” or, “I am not good enough for them.” When we fail to get by by ourselves, we then get involved in things we know we should not be involved in. In an effort to fit in and not be alone, we do it. After all these fail and the hurt of being alone becomes to painful, we hear a voice saying, “the world will be better off without you”.
Do not let the lie become truth but allow the Truth Be Light!
Jesus Himself faced being alone:
John 16:32 (NLT)
But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when you will be scattered, each one going his own way, leaving me alone. Yet I am not alone because the Father is with me.
Jesus: God’s solution to being alone!
Luke 4:18 & 19
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the Lord’s favor has come.
Holy Spirit: God’s comforter given to us!
John 14:15-18 15
“If you love me, obey my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. No, I will not abandon you as orphans—I will come to you.
Because the Promises of God are Yes and Amen In Christ Jesus!
Because the Promises of God are Yes and Amen In Christ Jesus. We can rest knowing that we are never alone, even though we may feel or maybe we are going through a time of being alone. He has promised us that we are never alone, He is always with us no matter what!
2 Corinthians 1:20
For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a resounding “Yes!” And through Christ, our “Amen” (which means “Yes”) ascends to God for his glory.
We were never meant to be our own source to meet our own needs. We were created to live in a dependent relationship with God, trusting Him to meet our every need.
2 Corinthians 5:17 & 18
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him.
We are first called to be in relationship with God because He alone is the One Who can truly satisfy our needs. God is the One who created us; therefore He knows our deepest needs since He is the One Who gave them to us. Once we see Him as our source that we derive our value from, then and only then will we be equipped to be in good healthy relationships. We will then no longer be looking to find value in people but we can just start enjoying being with them or even being alone for we are never alone, God is always there with us, those of us who belong to Christ Jesus!
The question remains, will be like Jesus and David? They turned to God when everyone else had left them.
We can turn to Jesus and cast our cares on Him because He cares for us?
1 Peter 5:7
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
