You may remember a movie where a man was stranded alone on an island. This man became so desperate for companionship that he drew a face on a ball and named it “Wilson”. This ball became his new best friend and confidante.
We may be isolated at home in the middle of a pandemic but we’ll never have to fabricate a companion!
…for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (Hebrews 13:5)
As Believers, Jesus promised He would never leave us or forsake us. Indeed, He can not. He sent His Spirit to live in us forever. The Holy Spirit is the down-payment of future glories to come, but He is also the One Who enables us to live victoriously in the here and now.
So if we are feeling lonely and afraid in these uncertain times, we need only to talk to our Lord Jesus, tell Him exactly what we are experiencing, and then lean on Him to meet those needs in the best possible way.
