Loneliness Cured Pt. 2I wonder why my thoughts would spontaneously will think that God does not care. That He does not understand. I just do not know why. When frequent study of the Bible reveals that He loves and cares about me more than I can comprehend. I know this yet the first thing I would think of is that He does not care.
My mind needs exercise on that one.
Matthew 10:30 And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Imagine when every time we comb our hairs and some fall on the floor which means He has to count our hairs every day to get the accurate number. If our very hairs are that important to Him, imagine how very, very important my whole being is to Him. If He wants to know about even a strand of my hair, then He definitely wants to know everything about me.
No one can possibly understand how great His love is.
So, when I am lonely, I will remember of His promise in which He said He will always be with me. I do not have to look for He is right there just I cannot see. I will remember when Jesus said that He would prepare me my room in the Father's house.
John 14:2 My Father's house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?
When I imagine Him preparing it for me right this very moment, it makes me happy. It is just a matter of time that we will be united. The suffering is worth it and not that long because for God:
Psalm 90:4 For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.
2 Peter 3:8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.
I am not confident in my own strength but in Him that He will help me to be strong. In the world point of view, I am independent, smart, strong, I can do it and etc - but when it comes to the Kingdom of God, I always feel like this very small helpless tiny person, okay, maybe a baby.
John 6:39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.
John 10:28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can ****** them out of my hand.
He does not expect me to do it on my own anyway. He knows I am just human.
Jesus understands about being lonely. That night when He went to pray to the Father, it must be terribly lonely for Him that none of the people around Him understand the sacrifice He was going to make. Yet, Jesus did it. For me. For us. He endured them beating Him, carrying the heavy cross, nailed to the cross - also through it all, treated like He was the lowest possible person in this world though He is a God and comes from a great kingdom called Heaven.
When I think of all these, my loneliness is cured. Before you ask "Why you did this to me, Lord?" in times of trouble, ask Jesus who was nailed at the cross for you, "Why you did that for me, Lord?"
I do not think I would ever understand the depth of His love. Therefore, it shall be my desire to seek this understanding. There are lots of verses about His love. Guess that is why people would say to look into the Bible for answers. If I type out verses of how He loves us here, I probably ended up typing out the whole Bible. Conclusion, the Bible is all about His love.
Remember? 1 Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
Now I understand why. If we think about it deeply, from the beginning till the end, it is all because He loves us.
When I think about His love that is too great that it must be overflowing, I cannot help but forget I was feeling lonely a while ago.
