When you’re lonely, where is God? He’s where he has always been — right beside you. He is with you even if you don’t feel it.
The Bible says over and over that if you have a relationship with Christ, then God is with you all the time. He says “I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:20b. He’s always with you. You’re never really fully alone. For believers, it’s a promise that we can cling to in our times of fear and loneliness. Not only is it a comfort, but it also gives us the opportunity to get to know God better.
Loneliness is a time to become better acquainted with God. In your season of loneliness, you need to recognize God’s presence.
Amy Grant used to sing a song with the lyrics, “I love a lonely day because it forces me to focus on you.” Prayer is a powerful antidote to loneliness. God has a 24-hour drop-in service. You can talk to him anytime, anywhere, any place, and he understands how you’re feeling when you say, “God, I’m lonely. I hurt! My heart is splitting. I am miserable. I feel empty. Help me, God.” You can talk to him any time.
David says in the psalms, “Where can I flee from your presence?” No where. You will never be in a place where God isn’t. If you’ve trusted Christ, he’s with you in your heart. You need to refocus on that when you feel lonely.[spacer style=”1”]
