The Feeling of not Belonging

Loneliness is one of the greatest problems that people face. Into our loneliness and the feeling of not belonging, the Bible says, God so love the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.”(John 3:16). We can be in a crowd, we can be at a party, and we can all of a sudden feel lonely. Do you know what that is? That is loneliness for God. We were made in the image of God, made for fellowship with God.

When we are away from God when we are sinning against God, and we have broken God’s laws, and we have disobeyed Him. He still wants to put His arms around us and say,” I Love You.” From the cross God is saying to us, “I Love You.”

Almighty God, who is from everlasting to everlasting, the Creator of the whole universe, loves you and is interested in you as if you were the only person who ever lived. God says, “ I have loved you with an everlasting love” (Jeremiah 31:3, NKJV).

_Billy Graham

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine…. And I love you.”_Isaiah 43:1
