Scripture: Psalm 68:6 God makes a home for the lonely…

Devotional: We started this week’s devotions talking about our created need for community.  Not only did God create us for community, but this passage shows us that He will provide that community for us in the midst of our loneliness. 

Home can be defined as the place where you feel accepted and loved.  It’s that place where you can be yourself, let your hair down and not fear rejection. Some of us grew up in places that never felt like home.  Maybe you still have not experienced that feeling of home. 

But God promises to make a home for you. Ultimately, none of us are made for this world.  John 14:2 says, “My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?”As followers of Jesus Christ, we each have a heavenly home awaiting us.  But you also have a place here where God makes His home with you.  And no matter where you are or who you are with, you are home with Him.

Reflect:

  • Have you ever felt extreme loneliness in your own home?
  • How might these words today help remedy that loneliness?

It's Ok Not to Be Ok- Day 12

Scripture:Psalm 130:1-2  Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord; Lord, hear my voice.  Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.

Devotional: The affliction of loneliness can feel like a deep pit that you can never climb out of.  But time and again, Scripture reminds us that we can call upon the name of the Lord to lift us out of the muck and mire of our despair.  His desire is to lift you up from the miry clay and place your feet on solid ground. (Psalm 40:2)

So if you’re struggling today, call out to Him.

Reflect:

  • Do you struggle with crying out to God in the midst of your loneliness? If so why?

Pray Psalm 130:1-2 as your prayer.  And look for how God will answer.
