Winning Alone With God…Do Not Live In The Realm Of Yesterday
There are times in the life of an individual where all seems darker and tough. That is the time where one goes alone on the journey of life. Going alone on the journey of life or fighting the battles of life alone is never a terrible thing but we tend to look at it as if we are left alone without people to support or help us.
Genesis 32:22-32, clearly narrated to us the case of Jacob who took his wives, children and all that he had and sent them over to the other side of the brook of Jabbok and he was left alone. Verse 24 says “And Jacob was left alone, and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day”. When you are fighting the battles of life alone you have to persevere and be determined.
In fact, every Christian must learn to fly alone just like the Eagle and at high Altitude. When you walk, you can walk with multitudes, when you run, you can run with few but when you fly, you must fly alone. Eagles do not fly with sparrows, ravens or other small birds, they fly alone. That is, if you want to go far in life as a Christian, you must learn to fly alone. You must stay away from narrow minded-people that will bring you down.
You have to keep a God-company not good-company. That altitude that eagles fly can not be achieved alone except you have God in you. Moreso, there is a level you get to in your spiritual life that you are left with God alone, confronting your battles alone. In Samuel 17:41-54, David had to face Goliath alone, David all alone defeated a lion and a bear that took a sheep from him while David was isolated and separated from his family tending to his father’s flock of sheep. (1 Samuel 17:34-36) God gave him a victory no one else observed.
When you are alone with God, you must have an accurate vision of God. That is, you must be sure of what you want. Genesis 32:26, Jacob said to the angel of God “…….. I will not let you go, except you Bless me”. When you fight alone you must have the ability to focus on your target without loosing concentration. No matter the obstacles you must not loose your vision and focus, success is surely waiting for you. (Habakkuk 2:3).
When you are facing the battle of life alone, please do not look at your past achievements or success. Keep looking for a new frontier to conquer. Do not live in the realm of yesterday.
Your moments of being alone with God is a time to hear from God and not from man. Why does God permit you to be alone? Because those are the times when God reveals His Presence, Purpose, Plans, and His Powers to you. So being alone with God is more than emotional emptiness but it provokes “absolute dependence on the Holy Spirit”.
Finally, times of being alone with God surely reveal the deep need we have for God, they also fuel and nurture our continuous focus on God in order to attain our glory.
