Make God Your One And Only. You Will Never Be Lonely


Everyone goes through a time in their lives where they feel alone and in it by themselves. It could be coming out of a bad relationship and being single. It could be trouble in a marriage where you feel alone. It could be challenges where you work or starting a new career/business where you feel out of place. It could be facing health issues or taking care of a loved one with health issues. It could be issues with family and friends. It could be facing the passing of loved ones. It can make anyone feel alone. God is with us through those situations if we turn our attention towards Him. He can bring us through any situation.
Hebrews 13:5 God says, “I will never leave you or forsake you.”
Matthew 28:20 Living Translation: Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you; and be sure of this—that I am with you always, even to the end of the world.”
Psalm 23:4 NIV Version: Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
It is good to know that we are not alone. However, we must spend time with God. He is the best person you can ever get into a relationship with.
James 4:8: Come near to God and he will come near to you.
Jesus knows what we are going through. Draw close to Him and fellowship with Him. God knows the beginning and the ending of everything that you are going through.
In the book of Genesis starting at Chapter 37, Joseph went through a lot. However, if you read through the verses it said, “But God was with Him.” Joseph kept the love of God and focused on God through being sold into slavery by his brothers, Potiphar’s wife trying to sleep with him, Potiphar’s wife lying on Joseph and being put in prison, and Joseph being forgotten by one of the prisoners when he got out after he helped him. Joseph held onto operating in his gift and staying close to God. He went from being a slave to being free. He ended up ruling when he used to work under Potiphar. Joseph even got married and had children. God can do the same for us.
Those that are not saved receive Him now. Read Romans 10:9-10.
Some of us have a longing to be married, to have a better marriage, business, financial stability, a child, better health, and the list goes on. God can fulfill you if you spend time with Him.
Psalm 107:9 King James Version: For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.
Proverbs 8:17 says You will find me if you seek me early.
The times we get up early is the time to fellowship with God. It is quiet and you can hear Him. Sit quietly before speaking so He can speak to you. Read the word of God because the word is God. John 1:1 says In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The following are two examples in the bible where the people were by themselves but were not alone and were complete.
Adam, starting in Genesis Chapter 2, was in charge over the Garden of Eden by himself. He was fellowshipping with God and operating in His purpose before God gave Him Eve. God told him in Genesis 2:18 NIV Version: The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
Those of you who desire to be married, begin fellowshipping with God in the morning. Talk to Him and He will reveal His purpose to you. As you are focused on your purpose and fellowshipping with God, He will send someone for you not just godly with good character or good chemistry, but someone that is suitable for the purpose and call you have for your life. The definition of suitable is right or appropriate for a particular person, purpose, or situation. I can attest to this. Me spending time with God is how this blog came about and He is constantly revealing other things to me. I am like Adam fellowshipping with God and operating in my purpose to encourage people. God has the person for us that is appropriate for His glory and His will on the earth.
My Aunt Mary reminded me of John who was another person who was exiled to the Island of Patmos in Revelation 1:9 because of serving God. While he was there, he fellowshipped with God. God revealed things to him and that is how the book of Revelation came about. During Covid 19, you may feel alone but you are not. God is with you. Get close to Him. He will reveal Himself to you.
Make God your one and only. You will never be lonely!

Prayer: Lord, I thank you that you never leave me or forsake me. I thank you God that no matter what situation I face I am not alone. As I draw near to you, you will draw close to me and fellowship with me. You know the beginning and the ending. You are The Way, The Truth, and The Light in every situation. I hold onto you through challenging situations and when things are going well. I give you the praise and the glory. In Jesus name! Amen.
