Isn’t it wonderful that Jesus makes the promise to never leave or forsake us to all of us who follow Him and are dedicated to being and doing what God the father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit have for us to be and do? You never have to feel lonely again because of this promise. 24/7, they are here for you to give you what you need, and they will never let you down. Try calling out to Jesus, the Father or God the Holy Spirit and ask Him to fill you with His love and His presence so you feel emotionally and spiritually full.
With God and all that he is in your life, you can break free from your loneliness and be empowered to move on to what God has for you to do. No more do you need to feel anger, hurt or despair about lack of human support and relationships. Because He came to experience what it’s like to live like we do. Jesus understands the pain of loneliness just like you do. When His disciples couldn’t be there for Him in times of great need and distress, Jesus turned to the Father for help, encouragement, strengthening and comfort. Jesus said that He and the father are one, meaning they are alike emotionally and relationally. The same is true of the Holy Spirit, since He is part of the Oneness of God.
Encouraging Scripture: Hebrews 13:5b
For he Himself has said, I will never leave you nor forsake you.
Father God, You sent jesus to minister to the hurting, and Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to teach, guide, comfort and encourage us. I am lonely, and I ask You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit to minister to me. Speak to me through the comforting words of scripture and through this inspired teaching. In Jesus’ name, amen.
