Have you ever felt alone? Lonely? I think most of us have felt that way at one time or another. Single, married, widow – we have lonely moments in life. But are we really alone? No, not if you have trusted Christ as your personal Savior! If you are a believer in the fact that Jesus died for your sins, you have received the Holy Spirit of God. The Bible says that He never leaves us. Jesus said in John 14 to His disciples:
“If you love Me, you will keep My commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counselor to be with you forever. 17 He is the Spirit of truth. The world is unable to receive Him because it doesn’t see Him or know Him. But you do know Him, because He remains with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I am coming to you.” John 14:15-18
The God of this Universe, who created everything including you and me, has called us as believers, His temple where He resides every hour of every day. You and I are never alone: we can talk to Him, we can praise him, we can tell Him our deepest fears and our biggest struggles, we can ask Him for comfort, we can ask Him for guidance and we can rejoice with Him in our victories.
It is for His good pleasure that you were created! It is for His glory that you were saved by His grace. It is a gift. Seek Him, see what His plan is for your life today. How can you glorify him?
Pastor John Piper puts it this way, “God is most glorified in you when you are most satisfied in Him.”
