Dealing with loneliness (2)

‘Everyone abandoned me.’ 2 Timothy  4:16 NLT What’s the proper way to deal with loneliness? 1) Learn to be alone without feeling lonely. Jesus often left the crowd to be alone with His Father in prayer. Why? Because He knew that solitude is essential to spiritual growth. And He came back from those times personally enriched and better equipped to deal with the challenges of life. The Bible says, ‘Then Jacob was left alone; and a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of day’ (Genesis 32:24 NKJV). Out of that time alone with God came a man with a new name, a new nature, a new walk, and a new future. Plus, when people realise that you can enjoy your favourite dish or movie or other...

Dealing with loneliness (1)

‘I lie awake, And am like a sparrow alone on the housetop.’ Psalm 10 2:7 NKJV Wolfgang Dircks, a divorced, disabled, loner, was found deceased in his apartment in Bonn, Germany, in December 1998 – five years after he died. He was 43 and died watching television. Neighbours didn’t notice his absence. His landlord came by after the bank account from which his rent was paid dried up. A TV schedule was still sitting on the lap of Dircks’s skeleton and was open to the page of 5 December 1993 – the apparent date of his death. The television had long since stopped in the on position, but the lights on his 1993 Christmas tree were still glowing. When God created us, He said, ‘It is not good that...

Be on your guard

‘Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith.’ 1 Corinthians 1 6:13 NIV Sometimes you experience more problems after you become a Christian than you did before. ‘Think back on those early days when you first learned about Christ. Remember how you remained faithful even though it meant terrible suffering’ (Hebrews 10:32 NLT). Consider the life of Christ. ‘After his baptism, as Jesus came up out of the water, the heavens were opened … And a voice from heaven said, “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy”’ (Matthew 3:16-17 NLT). Then we read: ‘Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted there by the devil’ (Matthew 4:1 NLT). First the call, then the conflict. And...

Jesus is your lawyer!

‘We have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.’ 1 John  2:1 NASB On those days when you wonder how God could love you, read these words: ‘If anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.’ When your thoughts sink to gutter level and your actions are anything but Christlike, remind yourself: ‘Therefore, he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, since he always lives to intercede for them.’ (Hebrews 7:25 CSB). It works like this: when God’s law declares you guilty, Jesus steps in and says, ‘Father, I have this person covered; they are trusting in my shed blood, and My righteousness has been transferred to them.’ Try to...

Become a no-limits person!

‘All things are possible to him who believes.’ Mark  9:23 NKJV No-limits people refuse to accept things as they are because they see them as they can be. Instead of saying, ‘It can’t be done,’ they rise up in faith and say, ‘All things are possible to him who believes.’ No-limits people have faults and failures like everybody else. The difference is, they walk by faith to the cliff’s edge knowing that one of two things will happen when they get there. Either God will put solid rock under their feet, or He will teach them to fly. In other words, they plug into God’s unlimited power supply. The author of the book of Hebrews describes no-limits people like this: ‘Who through faith conquered...

Don’t get distracted

‘Let your eyes look straight ahead.’ Proverbs  4:25 NKJV To succeed at what God has called you to do, you must do these: 1) Remove distractions. This is not easy, as most people now get hundreds of electronic messages day. But you must do it. How? By keeping the discipline of practising your priorities. Don’t accomplish easy things first, or hard things first, or urgent things first. Do first things first – the important activities that provide you with the highest return. That way, you keep distractions minimised. 2) Protect yourself from distractions. Allocate blocks of time to think without interruptions. Make yourself unavailable so you can work without interruptions. If you are a...

Establish your priorities

‘I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain.’ John 1 5:16 NKJV In order to fulfil God’s plan for your life, you must establish clear priorities and live by them each day. Author Edward de Bono quipped, ‘A conclusion is the place where you get tired of thinking.’ Sadly, many people arrive at priorities based on where they ran out of steam. You definitely don’t want to do that. Nor do you want to allow others to decide your agenda or your priorities. Many ways exist for determining priorities. First, and foremost, your plan must always line up with God’s will for you (see Hebrews 13:20-21). Jesus said, ‘I chose you and appointed you...

When you’re under attack (6)

‘I have fought a good fight.’ 2 Timothy  4:7 KJV Here are three more things to keep in mind when you’re under attack: 1) You are not unique. In a letter to persecuted believers, the apostle Peter said, ‘Be strong in your faith. Remember that your Christian brothers and sisters all over the world are going through the same kind of suffering you are’ (1 Peter 5:9 NLT). We are all on the same battlefield, but the devil would love to convince you that you’re the only person who has ever experienced anything like this. That’s so you will feel like a failure and cut yourself off from the strength and support that comes from fellowship with other believers. Be wise; don’t let him do that to you....

When you’re under attack (5)

‘With us is the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles.’ 2 Chronicles 3 2:8 NIV The new birth creates a battle between your old nature and your new nature, and you must learn how to fight it. For the last handful of days, we have been looking at scriptural strategies for winning. Here are a few more: 1) Fill your mind with Scripture. David said, ‘If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction’ (Psalm 119:92 NIV). Your mind is like soil; it will grow any seed you plant, good or bad. When you plant words spoken by God, you’re sowing energy, life, and hope into your spirit. God’s Word can strip Satan of his power to infect you with fear and unbelief. The...

When you’re under attack (4)

‘If you fail under pressure, your strength is too small.’ Proverbs 2 4:10 NLT For the last few days, we have talked about how to handle Satan’s attacks when they come. So, if you’re under attack today, do these: 1) Be tough. Life is a collection of battles, which means it can also be a collection of victories. ‘Greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world’ (1 John 4:4 KJV). Reach within and draw on God’s strength. Go ahead; He longs to show you what He can do for you. ‘For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”’ (Hebrews 13:5-6 NKJV). Did you get that? ‘He has said …...
