Turning Strength in Solitude (Part 2)
Pastor Gilberto Nascimento
After following the 1st half the story of entitled "society alone," we want together you get more the face of God that he gives us through his word, the direction that will lead to the deliverance of the whole disturbance that causes the loneliness .
The lonely feel weak, the physical body is exposed to satanic assaults, causing the person to feel pain in bones, joints, and develop various diseases. The soul feels existentially moved completely away from the essential plan that God has marked out for her. Crying is a constant and the weak will be installing slowly, putting down roots and imprisoning the lonely.
The six psalms speaks clearly about these issues, and shows the cry of him that feels dejected. In verses 2-6 the psalmist asks the Lord's mercy and portrays all his physical affliction saying: Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am weak, heal me, Lord, for my bones are troubled. My soul is vexed: but thou, Lord, how long?
Return, O Lord, deliver my soul: save me for thy mercy.
For in death there is no remembrance of thee in the grave who will take you?
And yet the psalmist speaks of your fatigue ...
I am weary with my groaning, every night I make my bed swim, I water my couch with my tears.
And so will the Psalmist talking about your eyes, which are consumed with grief and shows aging.
Here we are faced with a plea so deep, and everyone who has lived in solitary can also ask the Lord, free to your lonely soul, driving a confident appeal to him that surely will respond to your love and kindness.
You see the soul that is tired of his moaning, whose anguish is now dragging on for too long, the company now has precious beloved Father in heaven.
Glory to God not to love??
Pastora Maria de Fatima Botto Nascimento
The word of God is so special that deals with all the pains of the present time, including loneliness and helplessness.
The prophet Isaiah in chapter 49. verses 15-26, to cite these verses as an example says that even a woman can come to forget his son, but he will not forget, because your love is immeasurable, ineffable ie, there is no way to measure, is elusive and unconditional, hits you no matter the condition they are living.
And dearest word assures us that we recorded in the palm of their hands.
Then say so myself, this time so magnificent in the company of our Redeemer, I was bereaved and lonely, my savior came into my captivity and I withdrew from this state I found myself confined.
I am a free spirit, and now the valiant manieto loneliness that overwhelmed me, and I feel the constant presence of the Holy Spirit in my life.
Look at the image that comes to me now Jesus: his hands are outstretched in front of you, I can see the nail prints as a reminder that he loves eternal with the same love forever.
You can also glimpse it love??
Pastor Gilberto Nascimento
Yes, of course darling!
When he raises his hands, flying its flag, all the children of solitude and he will meet.
So sing to God, says the psalmist, sing praises unto his name: he who goes on to praise the heavens as his name is Jehovah, rejoice before him, and in Psalms 68 verse 6 we read out loud;
"God sets the lonely in families; liberates those who are bound in chains, but the rebellious dwell in a dry land."
How nice to hear the word of God and internalize his providential care for us.
The gospel of Luke in chapter 7. Verses 11-17 tell us about a woman, the widow of Nain.
In this city, this widow was burying her only son as he approached it moved by compassion, and said to her: Weep not, and this time Jesus performed the miracle of the resurrection, bringing his son back to life because he has special care for the widow and orphans in their affliction, and for anyone who is alone in the world.
We are God's beloved family, and we have in Christ Jesus made sure that we are no longer alone.
So come on, is a Redemptorist a living Christ, and also feel the immense love.
See you soon.
