Romans 8:38-39 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons neither the present nor the future = nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the Loe of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Who would have ever thought a few weeks ago that most of the world today is in isolation!!!
This morning our church went live on line, this is the first time Andrew and I have ever experienced church on line. At the end of it we decided to play some more worship songs and end our service with having communion together which was lovely.
As I was listening to the song “raise a hallelujah” I sensed that a lot of people might be feeling isolated, especially if you live alone. I want to remind you that if you have made a commitment to Jesus, you are never alone, ever. His word says in Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them (coronavirus) for the Lord your God will never leave you or forsake you.
Don’t allow a feeling of isolation to overtake you during this time, instead sit quietly with the Lord and have communion with Him. I looked up the meaning of communion and this is what it said. “the sharing or exchange of intimate thoughts and feelings, especially on a mental or spiritual level” (off-course it also means The Lords Supper).
You can be sure that the devil will put thoughts and feelings of being isolated into your mind, and if he can get you to dwell on that, you will feel very alone. Tell him he is a liar and Jesus is the truth, then sit down and have communion with Jesus.
Father I pray in Jesus name, if there is any one who reads this blog that is feeling isolated and alone, would you wrap your loving arms around them and remind them by Your spirit that you never leave them or forsake them. Amen
