When You Feel Alone In The World…

For many are called, but few are chosen. – Matthew 22:14

Hello my fellow Proverbs 31 women in progress,

I hope you had a good week in the mighty arms of Our Lord. As for me, when I converted to Christianity and that I decided to follow the path of the Lord, I felt alone sometimes.

My relatives and friends questioned my intelligence. Some even mocked me and told me that I was stupid and that I should follow the examples of some high-class prostitutes who had the external signs of success: jewelry, expensive fake hair and nails, nice homes, etc.

So, striving to be righteous can be hard sometimes. But I’m standing by the promises of the Most High because I know He is the Way, the Truth and the Life.

But I always remember Solomon’s words below:

Though a sinner does evil a hundred times, and his days are prolonged, yet I surely know that it will be well with those who fear God, who fear before Him. But it will not be well with the wicked; nor will he prolong his days, which are as a shadow, because he does not fear before God – Ecclesiastes 8:12-13

If you are in my case and that you feel misunderstood, here are some examples of people who were rescued because of their righteousness in a world of sin.

Noah

Noah was righteous in the sight of the Lord when all the inhabitants of the earth were sinning. He and his family were rescued from the Flood – so 8 people were saved on millions of people. Can you imagine?

Loth

Loth was living in Sodom where people were very sinful and practiced all kinds of evil deeds that angered the Lord. But he, his wife and his daughters were the only people that were saved from the destruction of Sodom. Well, his wife wasn’t exactly saved but these are stories for other days…

The promise of the Lord during Ahab and Jezebel’s days

During Ahab’s reign, the people of Israel was strongly encouraged to worship Baal and those who didn’t comply were persecuted and slaughtered. However, the Lord didn’t forget the minority who remained faithful to him and He declared:

Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him. – 1 Kings 19:18

Ebed-Melech

Ebed-Melech was an Ethiopian eunuch who was the servant of King Zedekiah. When Jeremiah was put in a dungeon full of mire so he would face a prompt death, Ebed-Melech went to the King to speak in favor of Jeremiah and to spare his life. With the permission of the King, Ebed-Melech went to the dungeon and lifted Jeremiah out of the dungeon.

Because of this action, Jeremiah had a message from God saying that Ebed-Melech would not fall by the sword during the Fall of Jerusalem and that his life would be his prize because He put his faith in the Lord.

So we can assume that when everyone was either slaughtered or deported because of the wrath of the Lord against the Kingdom of Judah, Ebed-Melech was left alive and probably lived a long life.

That’s it for today! I hope that these Biblical examples encouraged you to remain faithful to the Lord, even amidst a sinful world.

    There once one time that I felt there was no one to talk to,to lean on and to help me out…then it was me and the world

    most of those times I was mocked to by people because I could produce anything good with my life but I just held on to God in prayers and to day I have made a lot of impact from just holding unto God so I advice everyone to do same

      I understand that feeling, the feeling that I am so alone that no one can help me as if I have no purpose of living. It is a scary place, I do feel like that from time to time when hardship comes and do not know who to turn to. I often think that me myself, is my worst enemy. 

      Religion can sometimes break family. But I do know that the lord is my savior and when I believe in him I am rid of all the negative thoughts in my mind. 

      I think the feeding of the 5,000 (miracle of the five loaves and two fishes) by far is my favorite miracle story.

        Without any room for doubt, the decision to follow the path the lord lord Jesus Christ is not an easy one to make, especially when the pressures of family and friends comes into bearing. It can very quickly make a believer get lonely. We all get this experiences. But there is always hope for those who believe in Jesus. These examples of those who kept the faith is wonderful.

        Keep up the good work and stay steadfast. God bless you
