The LORD God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”
Genesis 2:18 NKJV
God is just about to create Eve. God didn’t want Adam to be alone. Folks, even way back then, God was concerned about our loneliness. And He still is today. God does not want us to be lonely, that’s why He gives us families and friends.
It is healthy to spend some time alone. It is healthy to spend some time alone with God. But we are not designed to spend all our time alone. God wants us working together, sharing one another’s tough times and triumphs.
There is a tremendous power in fellowship. We are supposed to lift one another up, support one another and keep one another company. Relationships like this honor God.
Folks, if you are feeling lonely, talk to God about it. He does care. Ask Him to send you friends to help you in life. Ask him to help you strengthen your bonds within your family. He will! I’ll leave you with these words….
“For the LORD will not forsake His people, for His great name’s sake, because it has pleased the LORD to make you His people.”
1 Samuel 12:22 NKJV
