Can you imagine what it was like when God spoke the world into existence? For five days, he created every living thing. Each day after he completed the work, the Bible says, “And God saw that it was good.” I love that the Scripture says that. One of the reasons I love the explanation is because when God arrived at day 6, he created man. And for the first time in the business of creating the world, God saw something was not good.
“It is not good that man should be alone…” (Genesis 2:18)
Loneliness was never part of God’s plan. His design is for you to be in relationship with him and in community with others. So if you are feeling lonely, remember that God is always with you and cling to this list of his promises!
