''I'm So Lonely...''
Leviticus 4:1(NKJV) Now the Lord spoke to Moses, saying,
Part 1. Loneliness From the Father
We've all been in this situation where we felt so alone. This section of the book will cover two different topics: Lonliness from God and lonliness from relationships. I will start with the feeling that you are alone and God has looked away. Did you know that in the book of Leviticus the begining of nineteen chapters bears the words ''the Lord spoke to''. It was usually directed towards Moses, who was a man, a human being just like us. When God first spoke to him the questions began, ''Why me?'' So the Lord answered "I will certainly be with you. And this shall be a sign to you that I have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain." Notice the bold lettering ''I will certainly be with you." Throughout the Bible either Jesus or God says many times that he is with us. Another example is Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’- Isn't that beautiful?
God will always be with us if we ask it of him. God never turns his head on us and he never leaves us. All we have to do is WANT to feel him or hear him. My friends do not let Satan fool you into thinking that God has abandoned you. We all get lonely but God has given us his spirit to live within us. How can we be lonely with GOD's HOLY SPIRIT inside of US?
Part 2. Loneliness From Relationships
This part is mainly for teenagers, but can be used in adult life aswell. All of us at one point in time were single and looking. Some looking harder than others. You, the reader, maybe in this point now. I remember sitting at lunch in middle school trying to find a girl I wanted to be with but had no idea that my reasons were wrong. I wanted a relationship for impure reasons and acted on these impure reasons many times. I cannot tell you how much I regret doing certain things. So let me ask you these questions, why do you want a relationship? Is it for companionship or is it for sexual reasons? Alot of people believe that a good relationship must have physical contact or else there is no point. But what they do not know is that even small make-out sessions can feed our flesh, giving it lustful wants, and may even lead to other things than just kissing.
There are many Christian's who believe that it is perfectly fine for them to date a non-believer. While this may seem shallow or mean, dating a non-believer is a very dangerous situation. God did not intend for us to be lonely in our walk on this Earth, and I believe that he has someone for us all. While we can be ''looking'' for a relationship, that doesn't mean that we jump at the first sign of a possible boyfriend or girlfriend. Just because she seems innocent, without God being with this person can be harmful on our walk with Christ. In no way am I saying that being friends with non-believers or other religions is a bad thing, no. But if you are dating an un-godly person than you, yourself will be tempted to become un-godly. Are you going to talk about God in front of this person? Will you be able to resist temptation? In my opinion it is better to wait for a partner to be placed into your life by God.
Another point that God has brought to my mind is that people confuse love with lust in many ways. There are many scriptures that depict love and lust, and if you read them than the difference is clear. The verse Mathew 5:30 says ''And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.'' Jesus is not telling us to dismember ourselves, no, he is telling us to remove things that are sinful or cause you to have worldly thoughts. And those of you who are lonely or lovesick, this verse shall warm your heart. Deuteronomy 6:5 "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength." If we are busy loving the Lord and recieving his love back, than we need not the love of another human until we find the partner God has planned for us and EVEN THEN, God's love cannot be matched.
