God With Us

In Billy Graham’s devotional, he says, “God did not create man to live in miserable inner loneliness.”

God said He would never leave us or forsake us. It is so good to know no matter what happens in life we will never have to go it alone. Sometimes friends leave us, sometimes spouses leave us, and even at times children have to leave us, but God has promised He will never leave us alone.

There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. – Proverbs 18:24

What a friend we have in Jesus! I have had to go through some really hard things. Things where I have felt to no one understood. This is something I have had to go through alone, but I always felt His presence surrounding me. His Holy Spirit assuring me I would make it to the other side.

I really don’t know how people make it through this life without Jesus. No one should go through life without knowing they don’t have to do it alone. They need to know there is someone with the power to change their situation. There is someone that has the power to right the wrongs.

Jesus said to his disciples, “Lo, I am with you always, even unto the ends of the world.” Jesus understands our fear of loneliness. Loneliness is everywhere. People feel cut off and isolated from others. We all need friends that will stick close to us. That will be there to listen to us and to care for us. So many people are feeling lonely. There are people who need you to reach out to them. Ask God to show you how you can reach out and help people that may be feeling all alone and alienated.
