One of the worse feelings in the world is when we feel that no one understands us or the situation we are facing. There are times when those who are closest to us seem to have no understanding of the pain, anxiety or fears that we have within us. It is this very feeling of being misunderstood that accompanies depression, anxiety and, at the extreme, suicidal thoughts.
What is God’s message to His people who feel so very misunderstood and isolated? You are not alone…Jehovah, the Creator of heaven and earth is a loving, kind and concerned God. He cares about you and He understands you and your situation in life. Listen to what the Bible says about how concerned He is about you…
Eph 2:10 (KJV) 10For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Gen 16:13 (KJV) And she called the name of the LORD that spake unto her, Thou God seest me…
Luke 12:6-7 (KJV) Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
Exod 33:17 (KJV) … for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by name.
Job 31:4 (KJV) Doth not he see my ways, and count all my steps?
Ps 56:8 (KJV) Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: [are they] not in thy book?
2Kgs 20:5 (KJV) …Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears:…
Isa 41:13 (KJV) For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
2Tim 4:17 (KJV) Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me;…
Phil 4:19 (KJV) 19But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
The Bible, God’s Word that He has given to mankind, reveals to us the following…
- God has made you. You are the unique creation of His hands. (Eph 2:10)
- God sees you and is watching over you. (Gen 16:13)
- God knows you so well that He has counted the very hairs on your head. (Lk 12:6-7)

- God sees the path you are on in life and is watching your very steps. (Job 31:4)
- God puts your tears in a bottle. (Psa 56:8)
- God hears your prayers and sees your sorrow (2 Kngs 20:5)
- God will take your hand and help you (Isa 41:13)
- God will stand beside you and strengthen you (2 Tim 4:17)
- God will supply all your needs (Phil 4:19)
For those who are saved …
What a glorious message from God’s Word… no matter what you may face, no matter how often you are misunderstood by man… the Lord will always understand, accompany and care for you. You are His, nothing can separate you from His love.
Rom 8:31-39 (KJV)
What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? [It is] God that justifieth. Who [is] he that condemneth? [It is] Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
For those who have yet to be saved…
God’s love was shown to mankind through the sending of His Son to come and die on the cross …
Rom 5:6-11 (KJV)
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only [so], but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
Titus 3:4-7 (KJV)
But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Won’t you turn to Christ and trust in Him for the forgiveness of your sins? You will never be left alone nor misunderstood by Him.
