Granted, relationships are hard to maintain. People are bound to say and do things that get to us. But never allow yourself to believe that it’s better for you to isolate yourself from people, especially those that God has given you.
Isolation is an a trick of the enemy
There are times that l have found myself crying myself to sleep, stressing over things and never asking for help. Feeling alone yet l have such great people around me but l had believed a lie that l am better off alone.
The devil seeks to isolate you so that he can attack you and no one will be there to help you.
We have to pray for the ability to discern when the devil is at work in our relationships and in our minds. The devil is a liar he will whisper lies to you, that you are alone, that no one understands and there by putting a distance between you and your family, your friends and even your church brethren.
“A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated,
but two can stand back-to-back and conquer.
Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.”
Ecclesiastes 4:12 NLT
I have come to realise that the devil is busy, he seeks to isolate the hearts of children from their mothers, sisters from their brothers, husbands from their wives .
You find yourself suffering in silence yet you are surrounded by family and friends. People getting depressed, suicide rates are heart breaking, mostly because people won’t talk to each other.
If you’re feeling alone right now l want to encourage you that “God is with you”,
And if you’re overwhelmed and needing help find someone to help you.
In which relationships are you sensing a wage of distance? Do you find yourself constantly isolating yourself?
When you know the truth, you will recognise the lie.
I pray that this empowers you to fight for your relationships.
Much love 💖
