Yes: even if walking alone, or almost alone, through this fallen world, you dwell in the Lord’s house, the Church, and God’s goodness and mercy follow you at all times. “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way” (Psa. 37:23). Since this is so, even if the steps along the pilgrim pathway are ones which the Lord has appointed for you to take all alone through the wilderness of this world, yet if you watch, with the eye of faith, each step will reveal the goodness and mercy of the Lord to you.
Lonely Christian, may you be enabled to say, from the heart: “Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee” (Psa. 73:25). In this world, now, a few years at most of loneliness; but what a drop in the ocean compared with an endless eternity to be enjoyed with the saints of the Lord, and above all with the Lord Himself, in the glories of heaven! Our Saviour has said, “I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (Jn. 14:2,3). No loneliness there! No lonely believers, wending their weary way through the wilderness with few, or no, companions. Only joy, and fellowship, and light and love for evermore! “With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the King’s palace” (Psa. 45:15).
