Have you ever been lonely? Perhaps you’re lonely now. You can feel lonely even in a crowd without a close companion by your side.
People leave. Death and distance separate loved ones. Relationships dissolve. Trouble and time tear us apart.
Even the most loving and dependable people will eventually leave us. Christians will face hardship, loneliness, and a multitude of other trials. But there is One who will never forsake us. One who is always for us.
May these Scriptures from God’s Word give you peace and comfort as you draw close to the One who will never leave you.
- Deuteronomy 31:6 – God is with you in the midst of any and every fearful and difficult circumstance.
- Psalm 118:6-7 – The LORD is with you! He is your Helper and Victor.
- Psalm 9:9-10 – The Lord’s sheltering presence is safe and reliable. He will never forsake those who seek Him.
- Psalm 68:5-6 – God draws close to those who are lonely and provides for them. He is a “father to the fatherless” and He “sets the lonely in families.”
- Isaiah 41:10 – God holds you in His hand. He will help you and give you strength.
- Lamentations 3:22-24 – The LORD is all you need. He is faithful, loving, and compassionate to those who wait for Him.
- John 14:16-21 – The Lord’s presence is permanent and intimate.
- Romans 8:39 – Nothing can ever separate you from Jesus and His love.
- 2 Timothy 4:16-18 – Even if everyone else deserts you, the Lord will stand at your side and strengthen you.
Even if you feel alone, you can trust that God is with you. Ask Him to comfort you with His faithful presence today.

These are great verses to keep in mind. I have really been missing my closest friends lately (they all live in different states or countries) and these verse remind me I am never alone!
Hi Lauren, thanks for stopping by! Our family has moved a lot so I also have friends scattered around the country and in Canada. And my three grown kids and my grand baby are all hours away too. I love how these verses remind us that God will not forsake us, that He will draw close for comfort and strength because of who He is! He is a God who loves to pull us close!
Iam a strong Christian women of God. My husband, mother, father & brother are all with the lord. My other siblings do not communicate with me and my daughter doesn’t speak or care to be around me & have taught my Grandchildren her unGodly ways to have this attitude against me. I live alone with no realitives to care for me. At times i cry because the loneliness is unbearable. I have prayed and ask God to give me a husband after my husband passed away 26 years ago. I am still single and at the age of 63 going on 64. I say to my self wbo would want a wife at my age. Still i trust and hold on to God unchanging hands, i know God in Jesus name has a plan for my life, i know that one of the fruits of the spirit is longsuffering, Jesus sufferd and so must I.
Pat, I am so sorry for your pain. God has not promised His children a life of ease, but He has promised that He will be with us and strengthen and comfort us. Keep leaning on Him. Keep trusting Him. I know it is easy to say He is all you need, but I pray that God will wrap His arms around you and prove to you that it is true!
I have been feeling lonely for so long, and I am trying to remember that God is there for me. These verses really helped me so much. Thank you!
Becky, may God fill all those empty spaces and cover you with His peace and comfort!
I have been divorced for many years, and have had relationships since but not in several years. Many of my single friends are in relationships. Although I have Christian female friends, I long for a real relationship with a man. I work long hours and in a field where meeting anyone is truly impossible. I pray and pray and still no one. I feel like God is not listening to me. All around, I see people with their husbands,etc and I feel all alone. I am pretty, successful, and feel like I am losing hope. Any advice for me?
Tammie, I am so sorry you are lonely. I have not been in your shoes so I don’t have any experience to draw on. I do trust that God is able to answer your prayer or change the desires of your heart. In years past, I have prayed that God would change my desires to align with His. I do know that God sees you. He knows your heart and your hurt. My best advice is to continue to “seek Him first” (Matthew 6:33) and most in His love and care for you.
Finally I have a partner from God for long I have been lonely I thank God for being there for me pain and sorrow.
