He is near.
The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. -Psalm 145:18
God’s many promises to us is that He is near to us. While our emotions and heart tells us otherwise, scripture does not lie. We must learn to not believe everything we feel. The heart is deceitful and awfully wicked, who can understand it? What God says is more important than how we feel. So in what practical ways can I tell myself that I am not alone?
- Guard your heart – What are you listening to? Watching? Reading?
- Memorize scriptures
- Be grateful
- Learn to trust without needing answers immediately
Prayer: Lord, I feel so alone in the dark. I don’t have many I can turn to. I need to learn to trust that you are near and are close to the brokenhearted. Help me, Lord. I want to be in your presence. I know you hear my voice and my prayer for mercy. Let my soul be at rest again for you have been good to me! Amen.
