Some times life can feel like a battlefield.
Every day a fight is brought in the doorsteps of our hearts. Whether the fight be sickness, depression, loss of a loved one, financial despair, loss of a job, stress, arguments, you name it.
Some times we feel like we have everyone else’s back, but nobody is watching ours.
It’s easy to feel alone during those times and it’s frustrating because we know, in those moments, we are the most vulnerable.
But we are never truly alone. Even before we existed God was thinking about us (Psalms 139:15-16)
In the moments of strife and troubles, that same God is with us. And He has our back.
“…The glory of the LORD will protect you from behind” (Isaiah 58:8, NLT).
You might be thinking;
He promised us freedom, so where is that freedom?
He promised us hope, so where is that hope?
He promised us love, so why do I feel so alone?
And the answer is simple;
Where do you search for your freedom?
Where do you search for your hope?
Where do you search for your love?
God promises that what we seek (in Him), we will find.
If we are searching for freedom through movies, video games, alcohol, friends, relationships, rebellion, ect.
We will never find true freedom, instead we will only find a temporary relief that will leave us.
To find real, lasting freedom, we must find it through Christ.
The same goes for hope and love.
If you feel alone, it’s not a symbol of God’s failure. It’s a sign that maybe it’s time to give things back to God.
“Now the Lord is the spirit, and where the spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom” (2 Corinthians 3:17).
Just as freedom is found in God, so is love and hope.
He will never abandoned us or hurt us. He stays true to His promises and He will always have our best interests in heart.
He is the way, the truth and the light. All who come to Him will not perish, but have everlasting life.
