The artists’ conceptions of God are interesting. The Almighty usually appears as a very old, very kind man. To them he is human. That concept, however, does not fit the facts.
Jesus said that God is spirit (John 4:24). The artists may say, “But the Bible says God has eyes and ears.” Yes. The Bible does indeed refer to God’s eyes and ears. God does see and hear but not like human beings. King David spoke of God hearing him (Psalm 40:1-2). And, yes, God does hear us.
Many are alone. There are those whose spouses have died. Many people never married, and they spend their aged years by themselves. But God wants his people to know they are not alone. Never.
The apostle Paul wrote, “However, God’s solid foundation remains standing, bearing this seal: ‘The Lord knows those who are his,’ and ‘Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from evil,’” (2 Timothy 2:19 NET).
Think of it. “The Lord knows those who are his.” There is not a more reassuring sentence! We are not alone. We have a God who knows us if we have obeyed the gospel and are faithful Christians.
Some folks who think they are alone don’t feel like singing. But David, in Psalm 40:3 wrote, “He gave me a reason to sing a new song, praising our God.” Do you have trouble finding a reason to sing praises to God? Just remember God’s salvation in his son and his constant presence with his people are two of many reasons why we should sing those praises loudly. What about hope for the future? The promise of heaven and eternal life? A heavenly rest for the people of God? Need more? Pick up a copy of God’s word, and you will find plenty.
You are not alone. God created you. He loved you and gave his son for you.
