We all know that the Lord has a plan and purpose for each of our lives, and that His thoughts toward us are to do us good, and not harm us. We know that the Word of God says He will never leave us or forsake us, and that He is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. I’ve been meditating on this lately, wondering why, if we know all of this, do so many of us deal with the immobilizing emotion of loneliness?
This is an emotion that each of us face at one time or another, and the only thing we can use to counterattack this emotion is the Word of God. Allow His Word to be your compass to direct you into all truth. No matter what other relationships or situations WILL change in your life, your Father remains steadfast and faithful. None of us are immune from the emotion of loneliness, but we do have a choice as to whether or not to accept the emotion.
Proverbs 4:34 (AMP) says we are to keep and guard our heart with all vigilance above all that we guard, for out of it flow the springs of life. The word “keep” in this scripture refers to a military term that signifies a guard standing at a door preventing anyone from going into it. In other words, it is our responsibility to guard our heart from emotions that can topple us.
Refuse to be a puppet on a string for ANYONE; refuse sap suckers in your life. Nothing will play with your emotions quicker than those that have leached on to you with wrong motives. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you perform a pure and true reality check on those who touch your emotions.
Keep Steppin’ Out!
