Man Is Never Alone
One never needs to feel alone! Everyone has a constant companion who is always present to love, protect, and talk with him. This companion is God. Men have companioned with God through the ages.
When Jacob thought that he was left alone at Peniel, he found God's thoughts so near to him that he declared, "I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved." Gen. 32:30; Moses appeared to be alone with his sheep when he heard God assuring him, "Certainly I will be with thee." Ex. 312;
This idea of Immanuel, or "God with us," is developed throughout the Bible and was fulfilled in the life of Christ Jesus, who proved the presence and comfort of God wherever he was. Jesus acknowledged the sufficiency of God to meet every human need, including that of right companionship. There were times in his life when Jesus seemed to be alone: when he was forty days in the wilderness, when his disciples slept at Gethsemane, and when he was on the cross. Yet the Master turned each of these experiences into opportunities to demonstrate his closeness to God. He declared, "I am not alone, because the Father is with me." John 16:32: He progressively discerned the unity, or oneness, of God and man.
