Dear Church,
I think all of us have experienced moments of loneliness or depression at some point in our lives. Many of us have struggled with having no one to talk to or to reach out to, especially when you have to wait for your friends to have free time in order for them to give you a moment of their time.
In Jesus, we have a never-ending friendship, but what is almost unreal is how he is willing to listen to us regardless of how crazy or impossible our situation may seem. In Psalms 77:19, the Bible tells us how God led his people through the Red Sea along with Moses and Aaron. “Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen.”
That is exactly what God does for us. He leads the way even when we do not notice Him working in our lives. Notice how God did not tell Moses how to go around the situation he was in but instead He led him through it, which is exactly what we need as we go on in our lives. We need someone to lead the way for us so that we may be victorious.
Sometimes victory means letting go of feelings of loneliness or depression, and simply trusting how God is willing to give us all of his time when we need Him.
