Where is God in our suffering? Has He forgotten about us? How will we ever get through this? Sometimes when we are going through situations, we feel like we are the only ones going through it.  We feel alone and abandoned. It can often feel like during our darkest nights God is nowhere to be found.  
Are you feeling alone or lonely today? At some point in our lives, everyone will feel alone or experience loneliness. How often do we just need God’s assurance, as our Good Father, that He is there, and that we are not alone? Dwell on Bible verses when you feel alone and allow God to reinforce this truth: we are never alone. God is always with us.
God knew there would be times when we would be so enveloped in fear and uncertainty that we would lose sight of His presence. He knew there would be circumstances so difficult we would often question whether God really loves us and where He is during our suffering.
No matter how difficult and no matter how dark the season we find yourselves walking through, God is with us.  He promises to meet us in our pain and to help us, saying, “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”  [Isaiah 41:10]
So, how do we as Christians treat loneliness?  By praying, writing in our journals, reading scriptures, listening to gospel music or even sitting in silence with God can help us refocus and depend more on Him. Having a strong connection with God enables us to cope better with our feelings of loneliness by focusing our attention away from ourselves and onto God.

Whenever we are feeling alone or lonely, let us remember God’s assurances today.  He promises to never leave us nor forsake us.  So, during our loneliness, let us pause and think about our favorite Bible verses and remember God doesn’t change and doesn’t lie, so we can trust Him that He will do what He says He will do.  “God is not a man, so He does not lie. He is not human, so He does not change His mind. Has He ever spoken and failed to act? Has He ever promised and not carried it through?”  [Numbers 23:19 NLT]
Faith walk: Be encouraged, no matter your role in life, always remember as children of the Most High King, we are never alone.
God, thank You that You are a God who never leaves us alone.  In the darkness, when we cannot see, You are still holding our hands and guiding us through. You know the path before us and you stick closer than our own breath. Help us to trust You when we’re confused and afraid. Help us find Your peace in times of worry. Amen!
