Netchurch: Are You Lonely ? Just give me Jesus for Only the Lonely Can Pray

Is Jesus enough? If you are
starting to wonder
this will assure you of His love.

“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.” (Isaiah 40:28)

God doesn’t feel like enough sometimes. This woman shared from her heart how she knew that God was supposed to be enough. However, we were also made to be surrounded by other people and sometimes . . . having just God didn’t provide the comfort she was searching for. I know that loneliness can feel unbearable at times. And some of you may even be surrounded by people during the holidays, and yet . . . still feel incredibly lonely.

There are times that our thoughts tell us, Jesus isn’t enough. You need someone to call you. You should have been invited to dinner today somewhere! There is no reason your friends haven’t come through for you or that your family is allowing you to be alone.

Please remember, these thoughts, though they may seem justified, are not from God. Because. . . Jesus is enough.

I know. . . it doesn’t always feel that way, but that doesn’t mean it’s untrue. Jesus is so much more than a comforter when we are lonely or the source of answers when we are confused.

Hebrews 13:1-25 ESV / 219 helpful votes

Let brotherly love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body. Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous. Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

He is enduringly strong,
He is entirely sincere,
He is eternally steadfast,
He is immortally gracious,
He is imperially powerful,
He is impartially merciful,
He is the greatest phenomena that has ever crossed the horizons of the globe,
He is God’s son,
He is the sinners’ savior,
He is the captive’s ransom,
He is the breathe of life,
He is the centerpiece of civilization,
He stands in the solitude of Himself,
He is all gust and He is unique,
He is unparallel and He is unprecedented,
He is undisputed and He is undefiled,
He is unsurpassed and He is unshakeable,
He is the lofty idea in philosophy,
He is the highest personality in psychology,
He is the supreme subject in literature,
He is the unavoidable problem in higher criticism,
He is the fundamental doctrine of theology,
He is the cornerstone,
the capstone,
and the stumbling stone of all religion,
He is the miracle of the ages.

Just give me Jesus,

No means of measure can define His limitless love,
No far seeing telescope can bring Him to visibility the coastline of His shoreless supply,
No barrier can hinder Him from pouring out His blessings,
He forgives and He forgets,
He creates and He cleanses,
He restores and He rebuilds,
He heals and helps,
He reconciles and He redeems,
He comforts and He carries,
He lifts and He loves,
He is the God of the second chance,
the fat chance,
the slim chance and the no chance.

Just give me Jesus

He discharges debtors,
He delivers the captives,
He defends the feeble,
He blesses the young,
He serves the unfortunate,
He regards the ancient,
He rewards the diligent,
He beautifies the meek,
He is the key to knowledge,
He is the fountain of life,
He is the wellspring of joy,
He is the storehouse of wisdom,
He is the foundation of faith,
He is the doorway of deliverance,
He is the pathway to peace,
He is the roadway of righteousness,
He is the gateway to glory,
He is the highway to happiness.

Just give me Jesus.

He supplies strength to the weary,
He increases power to the faint,
He offers escape to the tempted,
He sympathizes with the hurting,
He saves the hopeless,
He shields the helpless,
He sustains the homeless,
He gives purpose to the aimless,
He gives reason to our meaninglessness,
He gives fulfillment to our emptiness,
He gives light in the darkness,
Comfort in the loneliness,
Fruit in the bareness,
Future to the hopeless,
Life to the lifeless.

Just give me Jesus.

He guards the young,
He seeks the stray,
He finds the lost,
He guides the faithful,
He rights the wrong,
He avenges the abused,
He defends the weak,
He comforts the oppressed,
He welcomes the prodigal,
He heals the sick,
He cleanses the dirty,
He beautifies the meek,
He restores the failure,
He mends the broken,
He blesses the poor,
He fills the empty,
He clothes the naked,
He satisfies the hungry,
He elevates the humble,
He forgives the sinner,
And He raises the dead.

Just give me Jesus.

His office is manifold and His promise is sure His life is matchless and His goodness is limitless His mercy is enough and his grace is sufficient. His reign is righteous,
His yolk is easy and His burden is light,
He is indestructible,
He is indescribable,
He is incomprehensible,
He is inescapable,
He is invincible,
He is irresistible,
He is irrefutable,
I can’t get him out of my mind and I can’t get him out of my heart,
I can’t outlive him and I can’t live without him.

The Pharisees couldn’t stand Him but found they couldn’t stop Him,
Satan tried to tempt Him but found he couldn’t trip Him
Pilot examined Him on trial but found no fault in Him,
The Romans crucified Him but couldn’t take His life,
Death couldn’t handle Him and the grave couldn’t hold Him.

Just give me Jesus.

He had no predecessor and He will have no successor,
He is the lion and He is the lamb,
He is man and he is God,
He is the seven waking,
He is the King of the Jews-that’s a racial king.
He is the King of Israel-that’s a national king.
He is the King of Righteousness-that’s a moral king.
He is the King of Ages-that’s an eternal king.
He is the King of Heaven-that’s a universal king.
He is the King of Glory-that’s a celestial king.
He is the Kings and the Lord of Lords.

Please,
Just give me Jesus!
