God Will Lift You Up from Loneliness – Beloved Women – July 14, 2020
READ: “Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted.” (Psalm 25:16 NIV)
TODAY’S ENCOURAGEMENT: Are you dealing with loneliness today? If so, it is a real emotion and something that many of us have dealt with during different seasons in our lives. You may be grieving the loss of a loved one, just moved to a new city, have strained relationships, or your soul is weary. The good news is that you are not alone, and God is with you when you are lonely.
In the above Psalm, David cried out to the Lord seeking God’s presence and guidance during his loneliness and affliction. David knew that he needed God to lift him up and strengthen him during trying times. Like David, we too must cling to God’s presence and be assured that God will lift us from loneliness.
God will lift you up from loneliness and desires to be your comforter during difficult times. Today, I invite you to draw near to God and don’t allow the schemes of the enemy to keep you in isolation. God will keep you and help you to overcome seasons of loneliness.
PRAY: Dear God, thank You for Your presence in my life and strengthening me when I am lonely. While I may not always feel your presence, thank You for reminding me that You are always with me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
REFLECT: How will you seek comfort from the Lord during times of loneliness?
