Many of us are living in a different season of our lives. Perhaps we are divorced or widowed and no longer have a constant companion with us. Yet, some of us are married, but we struggle with being spiritually, emotionally, or physically separated from our spouses. Or we are empty nesters without the busyness of raising children or we are in a time of retirement without the daily interaction with coworkers. Some of us struggle with loneliness because of our life situation which puts us in isolation and separate from other people. Regardless of where you are in life—you are never, never alone in Christ Jesus.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ sealed us with the presence of the Holy Spirit when we trusted in the Lord. Although Satan will tempt us to believe that we are alone, he is the father of all lies and we must strive towards the truth that God is always with us. In Joseph’s dream, he was told of the virgin birth of Jesus and that He would be called Emmanuel, meaning “God with us.” (Matthew 1:23)
For those who follow after Christ, we can be physically alone—but not lonely. Our Father in heaven will never leave nor forsake us at any time—good or bad. He is with us until the day we take our last breath on earth. The Lord will be an everlasting presence throughout eternity. We will never be alone.
Many times in the darkest of nights we will feel like we are alone. It’s in those times we can call on Emmanuel to fill our hearts with assurance of His presence. We can rest in His promise because “God is not man, that he should lie…” (Numbers 23:11) Because He lives, we are never alone!
Dear Lord, sometimes I feel very alone and yet I know that You are with me all the time. Fill my heart with the joy of Your presence so that I can find the strength to move forward. In Jesus’ name, amen.
In His Service,
