The Root of Why People Feel Lonely
We human beings are generally lonely creatures. This feeling of loneliness ruins a person’s mood. The feeling of loneliness causes a person to become suspicious about his environment and world, and think that there really isn’t anyone to support him. When people feel this loneliness, they even become enemies with others. They say, “When everyone is unkind to me, I’ll be the same way too. No one has mercy on me. I’ll be the same way too.”
Friends, let’s accept our loneliness in this world. This loneliness can be felt when entering the grave. Suddenly a person sees that he is truly alone in this world. This loneliness can be understood deeply in some difficulties. We are always alone. This feeling comes for some people close to their death.
Satan brings the most pressure close to people’s death to make them unbelievers. When a person feels his loneliness, Satan says, “See, God didn’t help you either. God won’t take your hand either. See! Become an unbeliever for me to help you.” This has been said in a tradition. And, some people become an unbeliever exactly then. They believed in God until that time. But when they feel that peak of loneliness, the pressure of loneliness is so high that they deny God too.
When a person is left alone lonely, if you tell him, “Pay attention to God. God is kind to you,” it is very hard for him to accept it. He will become suspicious about God too. It is possible that he will become an unbeliever about God. How can we explain to these people, “This loneliness that you feel in this world doesn’t mean that no one loves you. There is God!”
A person is alone and has no one in this world. This doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have God. This means that he ONLY has God.
