“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” (John 14:18)
Few things are there that make us to stumble in this world and amongst that it is the loneliness, which is so bitter. Though we seek for the support and help from other people to accomplish our dreams, finally we realize that no one is there in this world to understand us. Yes, it is because man is self-centred. But our Lord assures “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you” (John 14:18). Instead of expecting people around to support you and stand by your side, ask the Lord to be your companion. He will do more than what you expect and guide you toward the eternal life, which no man can do.
whatever be your problem, share it to Him and He will readily come to fulfil your needs. Bible says that He is a father to the fatherless, a defender of widows…. He sets the lonely in families…( Psalm 68:5,6). God is with you. You are not an orphan. He will fill your heart with His goodness and your mouth shall speak it out. Yes, words of joy, hope and plans of God would come out of your mouth and all you need is the Holy Spirit to experience such blessings. God will neither leave you nor forsake you (Heb.13:5). Do not be worried!
A Prayer for Today
Gracious and loving heavenly Father, Thank You for reminding me today that You are with me at all times. Lord, my friends, siblings and even my parents may fail me but You O Lord will never let me down. Thank You for Your love and mercies. Help me to understand your ways and walk in it. Lord, guard me from evil and fill me with Thy Holy Spirit that I may utter words of joy and hope. I ask all this in the matchless name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Amen.
