With all the uncertainty in the world right now, I felt it would be a great time to talk about loneliness and inadequacy. God reminds His people that in their times of loneliness- they should not fear or worry.
Why? Because God is near to the broken hearted and He is with each of us every step of the way, ‘holding us up in His righteous right hand’.
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’Isaiah 41:10 NKJV
Loneliness is something that everyone experiences at some time or another. However, extreme cases can lead to being fearful- causing us to take our eyes off of God. When we are going through periods of loneliness we must remember what God tells us in His word, ‘I will NEVER leave you, nor forsake you.’ (Hebrews 13:5 NKJV)
Those that are feeling lonely need to remember that God is our friend- our comforter, and our peace. We are never truly alone- Jesus is always with us. Loneliness, inadequacy, fear, and worry can all be helped through the Holy Spirit. (John 14:26 NKJV)
It is hard to keep our eyes focused on Jesus when we feel like He is not listening, but we must remember that there is a season for everything (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8) and God has our best interest at heart.
So when it seems like your world is falling apart- just allow God to hold you- you are not falling apart- you are falling into place. We need to release the control we are trying to keep over our life and our feelings and hand each over to God.
Allow God to just ‘hold you’ while you are struggling. Let Him do the work while you focus on trusting in Him and holding on to His promises.
