LONELINESS

Loneliness is not a pleasant emotion; yet there are millions who experience loneliness. Loneliness comes from a person alienating or withdrawing oneself from God. If you don’t consider this, all remedies will only give that person temporary and superficial (shallow, insignificant) relief.

Loneliness can be the very beginning of a new life of spiritual maturity. The lack of intimacy with the Lord can be most painful, for God never intended for mankind to estrange himself (or herself) from his Creator. Quite the contrary, God made man so that He could have fellowship with him. Loneliness is a great trouble and affliction to people of all ages.

Psalm 102:1-7 A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed, and poureth out his complaint before the Lord. Hear my prayer, O Lord, and let my cry come unto thee. [2] Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily. [3] For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth. [4] My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread. [5] By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin. [6] I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert. [7] I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top. [KJV]

This is a prayer of one overwhelmed with trouble, pouring out problems before the Lord, a prayer of someone afflicted with loneliness. It is our duty and privilege to pray to the Lord, and it is a tremendous comfort to an afflicted spirit to unburden itself, simply by humbly stating your griefs.

Loneliness is probably the most desolate word in the English language. Loneliness causes a sense of complete emptiness and uselessness. It is not a sin to be lonely, for even our Lord was lonely; but it is a sin to turn away from God. People were created to have fellowship with God and other people. But is we have a good relationship with God, it seems that He makes arrangements for us to find comfort and friendship in people.

Solitude is NOT loneliness. Being ‘alone’ is not the same as loneliness. Jesus was often alone (by choice), especially when He prayed. Some people like to be alone, away from the hussle-bussle of the world. Loneliness is the absence of a personal, close relationship with God and can be a negative experience. Solitude is being by oneself, many times by preference, and can have a positive and renewing effect on a person. Solitude grants us the much needed opportunity of gaining (or regaining) God’s viewpoint on life.

All desolate, lonely souls should take comfort in the fact that God is with His lonely children today, just as He was with His lonely Son when Jesus walked the Earth. To be lonely without God is a foretaste of Hell; but to be alone with God is a foretaste of Heaven!

We can claim one of three attitudes, in relation to what God promises:

  • (1) We can ‘come up short’ by not counting their value. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; [KJV]

  • (2) We can ‘stagger’ around like a drunk man because of our unbelief. Romans 4:20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; [KJV] James 1:7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. [KJV]

  • (3) We can have ‘full assurance’ because we know God can be trusted and will keep His Promises. Romans 4:21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. [KJV]

If there is ANY gap between God’s Promises to us and their fulfillment, it is OUR fault, simply because we have NOT claimed them! Trust God today, He is so good!

John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. [KJV] Our heart need not be troubled by loneliness or anything else. Jesus is there for us, day or night!

John 14:18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. [KJV] When Jesus left the Earth to return to Heaven, He made arrangements for us to have continual comfort, that being through His Holy Spirit, who lives within each and every child of God.

Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. [KJV] True children of God are not controlled by their sinful nature. They are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in them. Anyone who does NOT have the Spirit of Christ living in them are not Christians at all. The Holy Spirit helps us live the life we should live.

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. [KJV] The temporary peace that the world offers CANNOT compare to the constant inward peace and joy only Jesus can give us.

Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? [36] As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. [37] Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. [38] For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, [39] 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. [KJV] These are tremendous verses! They are awesome and comforting!

NOTHING in this universe can ever separate us from the love of God which is available to us only through Christ Jesus our Lord!

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. [KJV] Take ALL your troubles to the Lord, and leave them there!

Colossians 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: [KJV] Only Jesus can make us COMPLETE, and give us peace within!

Isaiah 54:10 For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee. [KJV] One day the mountains and hills as we know them will definitely be gone; but God's love for His people is here to stay for eternity!

Isaiah 58:9 Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; [KJV] Any one of God’s children can call upon Him, any time, any place, and He will answer!

2 Corinthians 6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. [KJV] God is our spiritual Father who will NEVER desert us!

Psalm 40:17 But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God. [KJV] God is our awesome and majestic Creator, yet He loves the least of us!

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. [KJV] He’s ALWAYS there for us, day or night!

Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. [KJV]

The Lord is ALWAYS with us, no matter what, IF we are His child!

Don’t give up on God when you feel lonely. Exodus 6:10-12

• Loneliness makes us feel sorry for ourselves. 1 Kings 19:10

• Cure loneliness by becoming someone’s friend. Proverbs 18:24

• Jeremiah was lonely. Jeremiah 16:1-17:18

• Do you feel alone in your stand for Christ. Mark 4:30-32

• You aren’t alone in the world. John 16:1-16

• Marriage alone won’t eliminate loneliness. 1 Cor. 7:28

• We should show love and concern to those who are lonely. 3 John 1:5
