When God gets us alone

I Yam What I Yam.

His Solitude with Us. When God gets us alone through suffering, heartbreak, temptation, disappointment, sickness, or by thwarted desires, a broken friendship, or a new friendship— when He gets us absolutely alone, and we are totally speechless, unable to ask even one question, then He begins to teach us.

As you journey with God, the only thing He intends to be clear is the way He deals with your soul. The sorrows and difficulties in the lives of others will be absolutely confusing to you. We think we understand another person’s struggle until God reveals the same shortcomings in our lives. There are vast areas of stubbornness and ignorance our God has to reveal in each of us, but it can only be done when God gets us alone. Are we alone with Him now? Or are we more concerned with our own ideas, friendships, and cares for our bodies? God cannot teach us anything until we quiet all our intellectual questions and get alone with Him.
