The road leading to Christ can be exciting, joyful, mournful, dim, bursting full of light. There will be times of fellowship, and there will be times where no one dares to go with you. There will be loneliness in the physical realm. Rest assured though that you have a friend that sticks closer to you than a brother. (Proverbs 18:24) That is Jesus; He will never leave nor forsake you. In the days of loneliness or maybe you just “feel” like you have a million people around but you “feel” like you have never been more lonely. Let me tell you that in those moments the enemy of God is twisting the reality of your situation and turning your feelings. I will agree that people are disloyal, untrustworthy, uncaring, they betray. They do this because they are flesh, and we know we do not war against flesh and blood, but principalities and darkness, evil rulers of our time. Our fight is spiritual this is where our struggle is!! (Ephesians Chapter 6)
This chapter is a golden chapter today it allows our insight into understanding that human beings betray, are unloyal, uncaring, hateful, abusive, downright mean at times, but this is not to be our focus! Switch it up on the enemy! You are not in the fight alone! If you have Jesus, you have it all! Might not “feel” like it, but as I have told you all before that the heart is deceptive and lies to us regularly (Jer. 17:9). This is why we need the Word of God to check ourselves against every day! To weed out the weeds of the enemy untruth and deception and even our flesh lies and deception away from our hearts so that the seeds of the harvest can grow and take root in our heart. That seed is the Word of God, and it can only be shown by reading, studying, applying, and speaking the Word over and into your situation.
Don’t allow the deception of your feelings keep you in anger, fear, loneliness, anxiety, most of all a prisoner or slave to your emotions. I am not saying opinions don’t matter; I am saying run to the word of God with your feelings and check them. You struggle with them, and I struggle with them but to grow up in Christ, we must tenderly learn that our feelings are deceptive, and the only thing that we can 100 percent rely on is God. Like all the people in the Bible, Christ must become greater, and I must become less. When this process happens, freedom starts to happen The Freedom of Jesus Christ! Oh that my friends, is the sweetest freedom there is. The only freedom that we have in this dying world. Our hope is in you Jesus! Only in You! Sweet one, reading this with tears down your cheeks don’t be discouraged by loneliness, it is just not true. Jesus is right there wiping the tears of your heart.
Allow Him to whisper to your heart today and fill you up with His love. We all need it, we all were created for it! Just let Him sweep you off your feet! I am posting the scriptures I want you all to remember, no matter what you are loved, favored, and cared for by the hands of the Living God. You are not alone; He goes with you!
Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. The troubles of my heart are enlarged; bring me out of my distresses.
fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in this holy habitation. 6 God settles the solitary in a home; he leads out the prisoners to prosperity, but the rebellious dwell in a parched land.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
A truth that God is with us
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
When you have these feelings and thoughts run to prayer
1 Peter 5:7-8
casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 8 Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9 Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.
I am praying for you and cheering you on today! Do not think that you are alone for one second! “The God that see’s” as Hagar said Is watching you and has his eye on the situation! He is faithful!
I pray and hope that you find Him today!
