It Is Not Good to Be Alone.
“18 The Lord God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.’ “
– Genesis 2:18 NIV
God said it is not good for man to be alone. It is not good for me to be alone. It is not good for you to be alone.
It is wired in the depths of our souls to be social with other people.
To grow you into a better version of you, you need to recognize this fact.
Whether you’re the type of person who latches onto people or you’re the type who doesn’t like people to do that, you need to understand it is an innate desire for us to be social, some more than others.
Joshua 2:1 teaches us that when we’re going through something hard, we shouldn’t go through it alone.
“1 Then Joshua son of Nun secretly sent two spies from Shittim. “Go, look over the land,” he said, “especially Jericho.” So they went and entered the house of a prostitute named Rahab and stayed there.”
– Joshua 2:1 NIV
If I were one of the spies, and I had to go, I’d be terrified. There are so many things that could go wrong like what if I fell into a ditch and died or someone captures me and throws me in prison. Either way, I would have felt better if I had someone to go with me.
In life, it is better to have someone going along with you. There is always someone going with you: The Holy Spirit. You may not feel it, but the Holy Spirit is there with you, going before you, preparing the way for you.
On top of that, it is good to have people you can depend on, but not worship.
“15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.”
– Romans 12:15 NIV
How do you expect me to mourn when I am rejoicing?
But something harder than that is how do you, God, expect me to rejoice when I mourn?
This brings us back to the overarching principle in the Bible – Agape. Doing something simply for the benefit of someone despite of how we feel.
God rewards those who choose to put themselves aside to do something beneficial for someone else.
Call to Action
Share your burdens. It is hard to partake in someone else’s burdens. It is even harder to let someone into your inner walls, at least for me.
But when you’re in an emotional pickle, you’d be glad to have people to hold your hand and comfort you; the presence of the Holy Spirit is a catalyst for change.
But first, go show some love to those who has always been by your side all this while.
God bless you and have a great time in quarantine.
