Deserted

At daybreak, Jesus left and went to a deserted place. Luke 4:42a

You’ve been there. I’ve been there. We all at one time or several times spent life at that place. You look around you yet found no one. Maybe the waves of the life sent you to this island. Or a wrecked life dropped you to this place. Maybe the choices you made pushed you to this place. Or circumstances beyond your control brought you to this place. The flight of your dreams had failure and had to land in this place. You wanted to talk but no one will hear. You wanted to shout yet only the air will receive the decibels.

Almost no life. Abandoned. Alone and lonely. Your address is this place…

  • Your spouse gone somewhere…
  • Your friends betrayed you…
  • Your siblings won’t talk to you…
  • Office mates ignore you…
  • Brothers and sisters in church and community left you out…
  • You’re a leader of this group and it’s lonely at the top…
  • You’re a member of this movement and nobody understands your struggles…
  • No family and friends in actual and in virtual…

Someone will come. Surely He will. He knows where you are. He will arrive at the crack of the dawn. He will be there at first light. He will come for you are on the top of His list any day. Before He starts on anything else, He will come. Before He raises His voice with authority to preach His salvation, He will come. Before His hands touch the sick, He will come. Before His command will drive out evil spirits, He will come. Before a miracle, before the water becomes wine, before He walks on the water, before multiplying food for the multitude, He will come. He will drop everything to come to you.

Yes, before everything else, Jesus will come to you. To your deserted place. To you. The deserted.
