Feeling alone is a clever scheme the enemy uses to make us believe the lie that our heavy heart is because we need to learn to love ourselves. The keyword is SELF. When God sent His Son to live on the earth, He came for many reasons. The first was to break the chains of death so we can live eternally, living forever with Him. Another was to leave us an example to know how we are to live. The Good Lord describes Himself saying, “I am gentle and humble in heart” and when we live like this, humbly, we are promised to find rest for our souls. He also says that living humbly means we are yoked or connected to Him and it will be both easy and light.
The Good Shepherd, our Prince of Peace, came to save the lost. He lived His life in such a way that He never thought of HimSELF. Instead, He lived humbly so we could follow His example and to think of others as more important than ourSELVES. As His Princess, we never need to be concerned about anything since God promised to supply all our needs—nothing close to what we could get from anyone or anything on earth!!
As we pour our lives and love into others, He pours everything into us! It’s just like the Creator designed our hearts to work since we are fearfully and wonderfully made, in His own image, in the image of God!! God designed the heart to pump and give oxygenated blood to every part of our body, then the blood returns back to the heart to receive more oxygen. Each beat pumps or gives more oxygenated blood to every part of our body so we can live! Imagine if our hearts didn’t give and thought only of itsSELF?! Another lie is how we will be happier if we are independent and become SELFsufficient.
