Christian Devotional – February 28, 2018

Ever feel like you are the only person around who is trying to follow God?  It can be lonely on the path that Hod has lsid out before us. The psalmist felt that. See what he says in Psalm 12.

Help, Lord , for the godly man ceases to be, For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men. “Because of the devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy, Now I will arise,” says the Lord ; “I will set him in the safety for which he longs.”
Psalms 12:1‭, ‬5 NASB

The man asks for help and then a few verses later,  the Lord answers him. The Lord will arise. Sometime we feel lonely because it is a deception of Satan to make us feel alone. Sometimes we truly are the only one who is walking the path of obedience. Either way, the response from God is to come and rescue us and to see us in safety, where we belong. It’s great to know that we belong in safety and God promises to bring us back to his safe place. Even when I feel the most alone, He is there with me. Will we rest in Him?
