Loneliness is defined as standing apart or isolated. Other words to describe loneliness include detachment, emptiness, and isolation.
Does this describe your life?
Romans 8:37- 39 says: “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Do you believe the cure for your loneliness is found in communion with God? That’s it. If you don’t feel it and God feels far, remember the truth is true whether you believe it or not. There is comfort in Scripture. There is comfort in prayer. And in the daily communion with God, we find a way to fight through the loneliness. Notice I said “fight” and Paul uses the term “conquerors” – it is a battle we face. Don’t forget we are waging war against an enemy who would like to do anything he can to separate you from Christ.
Don’t let him. Fight the loneliness with truth.
When loneliness lingers, lift your eyes to see who is already in your life. If you feel as if no one is in your life. Christ is there. I know that seems like a platitude. But let me tell you something: when God strips everything away – it is He who remains. Seek Him. In the pages of His word He is there.
This Bible reading plan will help you with finding a way through the Scripture to keep that loneliness at bay.
For today, this is my prayer. Maybe it can be yours too:
Lord, fill me with you, all the empty, lonely pieces. Amen.I will look forward to your comments and questions below!
