Overcoming the fear of loneliness requires understanding God’s commitment to you. His fatherhood isn’t based upon mood, sentiment or emotion; it is based on His unchanging character and reputation. Everything HE is, and claims to be, stands. He is always faithful to love you.
I Samuel 12:22 ”For the sake of His great name the lord will not reject his people, because the Lord was pleased to make you his own.” Notice two things in this scripture: concern for His good name and the pleasure He takes in being your Father, and why He will never turn his back on you. Your problems don’t mean that God is judging or disowning you. Satan would love to convince you of that. He will tell you that you have failed God, or that God has failed you in order to make you feel unworthy, hopeless, disowned by God and abandoned.
‘Great is thy faithfulness, O God, my father’. In your circumstances and suffering, “God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out, his merciful love couldn’t have dried up. They’re created new every morning. How great your faithfulness.” Suffering and adversity doesn’t cancel His faithfulness. Hebrews 13:8 ”Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
