“He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.” .

(‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭53:3‬ ‭KJV‬‬)

Dearly beloved and friends,ever been very lonely in a crowd,despite being surrounded by so close friends and relatives?Yes !,Really? then welcome to one of the indispensable routes you need to go through in life;to get to your place of destiny and glory.Listen to God:

Examples:

  1. Adam & Eve: They offended God and were stripped of glory, yet God made clothes of animal skins for them (See Genesis 3:21).
  2. Joseph: Bereft of kindred love and care, was taken into slavery, God made him a Prime Minister in a strange land (See Genesis 41:41).
  3. David: Left in the field to run the sheep, opened to attacks of dangerous animals: at the appointed time he was anointed King of Israel over and above his brethren (See 1 Samuel 16:13).
  4. Jesus Christ: Our perfect example was despised of men and rejected; lo and behold He rose triumphant (See Matthew 28:6-7).
  5. YOU: God’s abiding presence is with you, even if all people forsake you (Psalm 27:10).

What to do:To feel safe even when lonely:

  • Let the Lord be your Guide and Shepherd.
  • Resist any attempt to go into self-pity.
  • Sing praises to the Lord and call on Him.
  • Never shift your focus from the Lord.
  • Confess “I am not alone, greater is He that is in me than all these challenges”
  • Openly declare God’s goodness,in your trials.

Prayer Points:In Jesus name:

  1. Thank You Lord for where I am today, Your presence shall surely see me through.
  2. Father, let these work out for my good.
  3. Father, let me rejoice in You no matter what.

YOU WILL NEVER WALK ALONE.
