“… And the Lord said, It is not good for man (Or person) to be alone; I will make a helpmate for him…” Gen. 2:18
The secret of dealing with and overcoming loneliness is keeping the warm love and Presence of God in your heart at all times. Look at Luke 24:13. Two Disciples who had physically walked with Jesus for 3 years were now on their way back home to Emmaus. Walking alone and feeling sorry for themselves, when a stranger joined them. This stranger was Jesus Himself. Here is the major problem with loneliness. You get so wrapped up in self-pity you don’t see help when help is walking right by your side. Like grandma used to say, “It’s so close if it were a snake, it would have bit you.”
Here are some steps to take: Don’t isolate yourself. Reach out to others and make new friends. Find something useful and productive to do. There are millions of exciting, wonderful believers ready and anxious to meet someone just like you. God can connect you to the “right people” who can take away your loneliness…
“… Why sit here until we die?…” 2 Kings 7:3
The one thing that gives every person the power to rise above their circumstances is our unshakable faith in God. Sometimes just saying “no” to a person or problem can save a dying situation. When others try to hold you back or down, look them in the face lovingly, smile, and say “No thank you… I’m moving on… nice knowing you…”
“… All the days of my appointed time I will wait ’til my change comes…” Heb. 11:6
Nowhere in the Bible can we study the heart and soul of man like we can with Job. Here is what we learn in studying the life of Job. Patience, perseverance, and an uncompromising faith in God. We learn how to Praise God with our feet in the fire… And how to rejoice in the face of ruin. Also we learn to “get up” when seemingly everyone has given up on us! Glory!
“… Without faith it is impossible to please God…” Heb. 11:6
My friend, just believing something will happen and sitting and waiting for it to happen is not faith. “Bible Faith” first believes then takes whatever actions are necessary to make things happen. I’m afraid sometimes we give people the wrong definition of faith. Good example: God said, “with the heart (or mind) man believes in salvation… but, until he opens his mouth and literally confesses it, it doesn’t happen!” Many times in my letters The Holy Spirit will instruct me to give people little simple steps of obedience to activate their faith. Faith is not only believing, but doing!
