We all know what its like to feel alone. FEEL is the key word here because loneliness is more of a feeling than a reality most of the time. But, that feeling is REAL! So where do we go when we feel alone? I recommend, as in most cases, we go to the Bible. It is here that we can find true comfort and peace in spite of the turmoil we may be experiencing in our lives.
So, to that end, here are 20 verses to encourage you when you feel alone.
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
Psalm 37:23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. 24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. 25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Psalm 139:7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? 8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. 9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
