Loneliness Vs. Holiness



There is a myth and a simple lie that says people who spend time alone (with God, since God is always there), this is potential loneliness.  This is a lie.  Holiness' biggest lie.   Jesus was not "lonely" in his 40 days of fasting both night and day.  A.Paul was without a romantic partner, yet he was content in every and all situations and circumstances.   David was on the run for roughly 10 years, yet God was forming his dynasty.
Get this in your head:  What the world views as "lonely" situations are 100% situations of divine Holiness.   Remember that the will of God for your life is holiness.  When you are alone, that is when God can speak to you the most;  That is when God can prepare you for what is to come!  That is when God molds you; transforms you, and teaching you most prized gifts that only heaven can give.  Don't be mistaken, there is no waist of time when you spend time with God, especially time alone in prayer.  Next time you are alone, my hope is that you see "loneliness" as divine appointments to receive the greatest riches from the Most High.

My prayer is that you will see these moments and divine appointments between you and God to prepare for the greater and most powerful appointments to come, the greatest being Christ second coming!  But view these moments that the enemy tempts us all to call "lonely" moments, view them as the only time you will have (because it really is) for you and God develop a close relationship between you and Him scented in holiness.
Holiness isn't just bought and worn like a scarf you buy from a department store and put on; no, it is developed and can get thicker and thicker (sweeter and sweeter) in your life just like a the atmosphere that many lit candles make in a temple.   See one day lived holy as one candle lit and blown out, thus making it's smoke fill the temple...now imagine 365 candles in the temple lit and blown out, leaving the smoke to fill the temple.  How beautiful is that filled atmosphere in God's eyes!  Now live holy.  Don't waist another lit day.  Your destiny depends on your holiness because your destiny is not financial; it's not just your career,  it's your relationship with (first) God, and (second) people.  

Declare today to yourself:  I will live Holy!



























If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
