5 Bible verses to find help in times of extreme loneliness


Nobody wants to be lonely. At times, it would be good to be alone so that you can spend more quality time with God, as well as have some time to rest, but being lonely will never be good for you. God knows that, and that is probably one of the reasons why He said while looking at Adam, "it is not good for the man to be alone." (see Genesis 2:18)

God has made all of us to live in community with a family of believers. We are social beings that have a need for family and friends, especially those who will help us grow in the faith. Far better for those who are able to marry someone that God has willed for them, because that spouse will ensure that any married man or woman will never be alone.

Yet, in all the possible relationships that any man or woman could have, they might still feel lonely. Some could still feel lonely even though there are many surrounding them. Friend, if ever you've felt that way, know that only God can perfectly fill that loneliness in your heart.

Here are some Bible verses that will encourage you and help you realize that you're not alone.
