ALIENATION

If the town where you live is anything like the town where I live, it is unsafe to get involved anywhere with anyone. The counterfeit church controls the town and they destroy anyone who speaks truth, refuses to compromise, or gets in their way. People certainly reflect what the Bible says about how people will be in the ‘last days.’ -Admin-

As in water face reflects face, So a man’s heart reveals the man. Proverbs 27:19 (NKJV)

The ache of alienation is soothed first by building new intimacy with Christ Jesus as Friend. But it does not stop there, for Jesus knows our needs for mutual love and fellowship as well.

Elijah had Elisha. The disciples traveled in pairs. And Paul always had traveling companions. God knew each person needed the support of a friend as well as His supernatural presence.

Seek to cultivate new depths of intimacy with your family. Pray for your family. Look for creative ways to do things together.

Ask God to provide friends of the same sex with whom you can develop openness and sharing. If you are single, widowed, or divorced, ask God to bring someone into your life who will brighten your day.

Don’t force a futile friendship. Let Him guide you. Look for avenues of service to your neighbor, church, or community that will open the door of fellowship.

You need others, and God knows that. As your most noble Friend, He will help you build godly friendships that keep loneliness at bay and sharpen you for His good and blessed purposes.
