God deal with my loneliness?
Nothing is worse
than being lonely or having to live an isolated life. Nothing is worse to
come through life without real contact with others. That is the very problem
of many people and this also can happen inside the church.
You can sit on
a chair in a party, in a bar or even in a church and still be alone. Some
people engage into all kinds of relationshops, and still feel lonely. The
contacts remain shallow. The same goes with the social network contacts, like
Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest. Many
people get depressed as a result and feel at a loss about life. Every year
again some of them commit suicide because they couldn’t hold the loneliness
any longer. The Bible says we’re not destined to be alone. We really
need someone to share our needs with.
The hardest time
for Jesus he had to go through – besides his suffering and dying at
the cross for our sins – was loneliness; in fact he felt abandoned by
God and man. The Bible tells us in Mark 5:34 that Jesus, hanging at the cross,
cried out in despair:
God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?”
Have you sometimes
felt abandoned? Do you feel lonely at times? Perhaps this is the problem you’ve
got to cope with every day.
One of the causes
of loneliness is that they don’t have anyone to open themselves up to
them. They don’t know anybody to whom they could express their deepest
feelings; feelings of fear, sorrow, hurt, inferiority or guilt. Another
cause of many people’s loneliness may be the lack of understanding of
others. They weren’t able to find someone who can understand them. You
may well have tried to talk with someone about your problems. You’d
have opened up to some person and honestly told him what went on, but the
other just couldn’t put himself in your shoes.
You may be confronted
with incomprehension, you feel like your problems are ignored over the conversation.
Or you get an unworkable answer, if at all. You
may have tried to find a solution to your loneliness. Many think they could
overcome their loneliness by finding a partner. Others try to blend into the
masses, wearing a mask and ignore to be themselves. Whatever they’re
trying, the inner void remains. The parties, going out, alcohol or sexuality
didn’t help to take away the inner void.
The answer to
your problems is Jesus Christ. He is the One who died for your sins. He knows
you, and so your deepest feelings and problems. And He is willing to help
The reason why
so few people are experiencing anything of Him is due to the wall of sin which
is standing between them and God. The only way to break through this wall
is to repent. When we repent, God will forgive us our sins and He will put
away our sinful heart and gives us a new heart. The Bible says in
5:17 ‘Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:
old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new’.
This is which
we call being born again. According to the Gospel of John chapter 1, we are
indeed children of God from that moment on.
just a prayer, it means resolving to seek God’s will in everything since.
It is followed by a decision to serve God. One of the decisions we are to
make is seeking a church in which God’s Word is still being preached
according to Biblical standards. The cause of the emptying of many churches
is that their preaching failed to provide an answer to the problems of daily
life. The preaching couldn’t help the peoples to engage into a deeper
relationship with God. They haven’t been led to repentance.
If you are involved
in sins like vileness, sexuality outside of marriage, abuse of alcohol, addictions,
hatred, lies or any other sin the Bible mentions, it is vital that you deal
with it. Jesus Christ really can set you free.
You can truly
experience Jesus Christ in your life. He is able to take away the loneliness.
In Him we never have to be alone anymore. He knows us, He understands us and
He can help us.
