  1. This extraordinary man has moved me to tears. He articulated exactly what I feel. If more ministers would learn from Tozer rather than Rick Warren our country would be a different place. Thank you God for this saintly man.

  2. If you feel like this, it must be that you are being separated from 1)the world, 2) lukewarm Christians, 3) the church which has become worldly. I've been thinking maybe i have become too critical. But after hearing this, i don't believe so. Christians are so accepting of the evil in the world, they have become "tolerant"of evil eg. homosexuality is ok. It truly is UNBELIEVABLE! how satan creeps into the minds of Christians. Satan uses his demons to first attack the mind.
    i believe God is separating the wheat from the chaff and so it is why "we"feel lonely. One cannot be in unity with the spirit of the world. And some are so-called Christians that we feel this separation and some are family because they do NOT like the LIGHT when they are around us.

  3. This encapsulates how I've felt the last 3 years of my life since Christ saved me. We are strangers in a foreign land, brothers and sisters.

  4. It is definitely a very lonely walk. I needed this encouragement. I was feeling pretty lonely yesterday. God is good all the time, even when we don't understand or can't see His hand at work. Praise the name of Jesus.

  5. This is so encouraging, Thank you so much for sharing, it is a sharing truth! I am alone in him.
    I am thankful, cuz when I am with the world or others, I find it pulls me from Him. My nature sometimes gets in the way. I do though am glad he takes me away from others n that fellowship, cuz when I'm with him, I less likely look at the world, especially Christian's in their pews n do nothing thru the wk. bugs me, I am not perfect, n my struggles make others question my faith, as I question pew sitters. luckly for us, He knows our hearts, and we can not avoid him.
    He is my only friend, and only sends me friends vi H.Spirit. sooo Thankful!

  6. I disagree completely, its of the flesh to feel lonely, we are one with the wonderful Christ. If the Word says 'good tidings and joy then being alone is a tiny price to pay, even persecution. This is making out christianity to be melancholy, not true, in Adam YES lonely, in Christ JOY

  7. This has so ministered to me. I understand and relate to what Tozer is saying. Even as a young Christian 39 years ago, I felt this. I have fought it for years, because I did not understand what God wanted of me. I thought I was too critical of other professing Christians, now I am encouraged by this and accept the work God is doing in me

  8. I used to think that "I must be doing something wrong" I seem to be on my own. A trick of the enemy. I know now that I am not on my own in this walk. Like so much of God's economy is a paradox so is life, I am alone together with all others at once. We must die to live, poor to be rich, etc. etc.

  9. 43 yrs saved n serving the Lord n caring for His sheep. I grew up lonely and poor. Here l am at 70 and still don't relish the lonely walk. I must say that the "lonely decades" have borne much fruit n me. Jesus is worth every sacrifice of a lonely heart …. there's a sweetness n comfort n peace that can be tapped into, only n His Presence. He is worth every sacrifice of loneliness n the only one that "satisfies our souls"

  10. I was down in bed from around the spring of 2017 and through the summer in severe pain. I knew God was here with me, and my guardian angel, so I never despaired and didn’t feel lonely. God is always with us, and I acknowledge this….but I also feel Him near. If someone told me different then I wouldn’t understand because I’ve experienced it differently.

  11. As Tozer points out, how can Jesus have been 'a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief' if He was One with the Father, therefore how can we be lonely when He is always with us? Well, because God WILLS it. There is no comfort (I Cor. 1:3-4) without sorrow, and Jesus' sufferings were fraudulent posturings if He were not truly grieved. God doesn't save phony sinners and He doesn't heal phony sickness. He is REAL and His comforts are REAL. We are called to TRUE affliction where He withdraws His hand no matter how hard we seek Him; it is only for a time that He stands aloof. Our spirits need to learn that, in faith, we truly belief that, 'though, He slay me, yet shall I trust in Him.'

    The reader of this selection is particularly sublime; wish I knew who it was. His delivery is remarkably comforting.

  12. Im not christian, ive been for years trying to seek peace in Christ for years without sucess , and all alone, sometimes getting verily rare moments of random help. But most of my help come from classic and of course scripture, i stop seeking for help in modern day Christians, not saying that all are equal but lot of help i seek they give bad cousilng anf my state get only worse, if was not with God help i would be sealed to damnation because of bad counseling. I believe in this modern day very few people can deal with soul with wisdom, and i will not take my chance for me doing that is like playing russian rollete, im feel more secure alone.

    Tough in only a lonely seeker this video give me encouragement

  13. Lord help me die so you can live in me. This life means nothing compared to the life to come. I want to die now while I have time to praise your name. There isn't a minute in the day where I could live without you. Come inside me Lord and find sanctuary. Prepare all of us Father who want to take it further with you. We want to go higher with you and believe for the unbelievable. All day every day… it's our pleasure to serve you Lord Jesus… it's our turn now and we want your will only. Give us a double anointing like you gave Elisha. We ask for strength, long suffering for others and the words we need at the right time. We pray and love you so much. We've got to go about our fathers business and since it's almost over, we're going to need you to keep us tight. We (the Saints) are going to fulfill your last days prophecy and make the way straight for you. We can do this with your help only Lord.

  14. I'll be straight forward I love being lonely I can talk to God more often. When God wants to do something in your life he'll put you in a lonely place so that you can talk to him and not be distracted. I went through a tough time and my dad told me don't you feel lonely he came to visit in NY he lived in Florida. I told him I used to but that lonely feeling is gone now, that lonely feeling is the enemy pushing you to make a bad decision. That lonely feeling is just a carnal thought only God can satisfy the soul getting married, going on a trip or what other reason is going to satisfy. There are people that have millions of dollars and fame and friends and yet they still feel lonely they're in a crowd and still lonely. Best thing to do is get another believer and hang out but don't get distracted. The blessing of loneliness is you can think a lot and get some awesome ideas solve a problem a chance to let your mind be creative.

  15. I added this video to one of my playlists, but never got around to watching it until today… I've felt like this 4 years now since giving my life to Jesus. At the start of my conversion it was a very lonely walk where I learned to trust him and only him, not family not friends, not church members just him… I believe in this loneliness God purpose was to plant the belief that I couldn't live without Jesus and indeed the times I've fallen away i've acknowledge that it is impossible for me to ignore him as much as I wanted. I'm one those people who is either 100% in or 100% out so when my stray walks away from jesus happened it was really intense and my life would be on the brink of destruction even during those times whilst I was surrounded by people I still felt lonely on top of being empty without Jesus, his mercy which indeed is better than life have allowed me to regain my life and my walk in christ. As soon as I would go back to Jesus he would put me in a place of this world alone, place me on the operation table and take out all the nasty vile things I accumulated whilst away from him. These 4 years I've been at university away from my family and church in a different city, I don't attend any church because in England they are very lukewarm and tbh the times I've been to visit churches around where I study I got very demotivated seeing how they practiced their faith. I came from a dark world of "drugs, sex and rock and roll" so when a "christian" group holds a meeting at a bar drinking beer, I just said to myself "this church is not the one". Occasionally I visit my main spanish speaking church when i go back home to visit my family in the holidays. It feels refreshing to be around my brothers and sisters. So reading the comments brought smile and tears to my face.. I can relate with a lot of you and I am happy that there are many out there who the Lord stir's their spirit.
    I still feel I've only just touched the door handle of my marvelous salvation.
    Yes we are just passengers here, sometimes it is easy to forget when the flesh, the world and satan try to suffocate you with its system and customs, " who will I be? Will I be successful? WIll I have a family of my own? Can I be happy? why I am here? what's the point in all this? Bills, jobs, co workers, friends , relationships, political and economic climate… all these questions and situations become meaningless in that alone time with God and his voice says "you are mine, I paid the price" and eternity sinks in your spirit…That feeling of eternity is God himself how wonderful.

    Carry on my brothers and sisters reading this, it makes me happy that God's word is absolutely true when it says other brethren suffer the same afflictions around the world, and remember always there is a cloud of witnesses watching over too, encouraging you to finish the good race, the good fight.

  16. Think of Jesus’ solitude in the midst of his family who did not believe…can you imagine the comments made by his siblings…(Joseph endured the vindictiveness of his brothers…and *even* of his father Jacob, who favored him…to the nth degree)…the Psalms tell us how the drunks made up songs about our Lord…even His disciples did not “get it.” Thus His sole visits to the garden where He talked with His Father and ours…and, as we become more like Him…we too must carry the same load….always alone in the crowd…but at the end…we will be joined in His glory and the entire life experience will be as nothing, and worth every single moment of our short time on this earth.
    Maranatha…things are moving quickly now! Soon….never alone again, for all etermity!

  17. The Saint is never alone. Call nothing God forsaken…. Lo I am with you even to the end….. The single footsteps in the sand of time is when he carried you

  18. I had to listen to this twice. It nearly brought tears to my eyes…. because that's me. Thank you Lord! Now I understand.

  19. This was truly a magnificent word! It makes so much sense of my present walk with God that I can truly understand why certain things happen and others don't. Thank you God.

  20. ExaCtly how ive felt this ,its such a blessing my heart i long to just sit at jesus feet and feel so separate from the world this truly isnt our home godbless

  22. I now understand. I was wondering why I cant find another to speak of God constantly and of spiritual things constantly. Because of this my prayer life changed, I had to speak to the Lord and listen to His voice , I had no other. So now I pray the 'unusual'. Every minute of the day my thoughts are consumed with God. I'm alone in this world and that is the circumstance of Gods will for me so to honour Him I am happy with my lot. Now I pray to Him nightly that He consumes my dreams also . I crave to dream spiritual dreams, private, loving, tender dreams of The Lord. The world sees me as out of my mind, just another 'born again'. So be it. Amen.

  23. Reality sets in my heart of how God made me. Now I know why I'm a loner and it's hard to find true fellowship. Even though I am one of God's sheep and desire to be with other sheep it's not the plan of the Lord, and I accept the path the Almighty on high has chosen for me to follow.

  24. I have always been someone who liked to be alone and felt distant around people like something was missing. Since finding the Lord I feel that my desire to be alone is a negative and I feel conflicted that I should want to be around people because of the commandment to ‘Love Thy Neighbour’ and when I don’t want to around people I feel like I am letting the Lord down? As though he will punish me to make me alone when I die because I loved it so much alive. But I don’t want to be alone, I just want to be around likeminded souls.

  25. So much truth in this .
    You can be in a house full of people and still feel lonely .
    Aloneness is v different from lonely .
    We can all as Gods children have feelings of loneliness but generally its usual when God withdraws and we feel the separation.
    Even though he never leaves us or forsakes us i do think he can do it in such a way that are feelings are bypassed so that we learn to live by trust and not by our feeling his presence.
    I also believe its part of the sanctifying work of his spirit that our attachments to the things of the world isnt the same anymore .
    In a sense we no longer are alive to those things and only live by the life of his spirit dwelling in us .

  26. YES I'VE BEEN SUCH A FOOL I AT ONE TIME WALKED WITH JESUS N FELL BACK INTO THE WORLD N I'VE BEEN STRUGGLING TO GET BACK WHERE I WAS BUT I ALSO WAS TRYING TO CONVERT A WOMAN WHOM I CARED ABOUT N IT'S NOT WORKING SO I HAVE COME TO UNDERSTAND THAT MY WALK MUST BE A LONELY ONE WITH JESUS THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS UPLOAD N GOD BLESS ALL

  27. Too all you lonely hearts in the wilderness, one day my friends we will dine together and experience the unimaginable in the kingdom of our Lord. Thank you for all you do for Our Lord and keeping this dark world lit up. Although i havent met you, i love You. Your brother in Christ -Rob

  28. This is exactly what I needed! It couldn't have been said better, I always knew I wouldn't find any kind of happiness here, but that's is a far second to me. I want my Father to be well pleased, and I'm not doing a good enough job. Pray 4 me, I love you fam! I wish there was a way us like minded could find each other.

  29. Man I'm almost to tears how true his statements. I don't know who you are that shares these audios but thanks you again. I notice people today hate this preaching! Again thank you!

  30. My wife and daughter moved out on the same day. My other daughters had lives as young adults, limited contact. The alone time with Jesus was all I had. I knew it was planned. I went through so many things relying completely on Jesus. The people that did make it through were used for trials by the enemy. The enemy communicated through friends and family. The very best times looking back were my low points, broken heart and spiritual battles with thise closest to me. It's because there is only one way to experience the greatness of GOD is when you are at your lowest. When my heart was broken emotionally and physically I had the most amazing realization of who Jesus is. It was worth every moment. I would not have any other life.
    If you truly die to self and give everything to GOD then there will never be a situation that exceeds the commitment. I fear nothing because I have nothing I am not prepared to lose.

  31. This is so beautiful and exactly what I am going through right now along with other brothers and sisters in Christ across the world. A couple of weeks ago I found a pin my mom got me when I was a child that had my name on it and what it means "consecrated one" or "consecrated or separated unto God." I had forgotten about the pin until I stumbled across it in my room. What a reminder that we are in the world but not of the world. How can we win them to Christ and why would they want what we have if we were not different? We are aliens in this world. 💖💜🌹⚘

  32. I would rather read and meditate upon one page of the Holy Spirit-inspired writings of A.W. Tozer than have a library full of the SELF-seeking, SELF-helping, SELF-serving, and ultimately SELF-destructive popular, New York Times best-selling books that masquerade as the gospel but are written by worldly wealth and worldly praise seekers who pretend to be angels of light.

    The writings of Tozer, Oswald Chambers, Andrew Murray, E.M.. Bounds, et al convict me of my shortcomings as a believer. At the same time they inspire me to draw nearer to God and Jesus Christ for all the more love, mercy and grace to grow in Christ and overcome. Otherwise l would be buried by despair.

  33. This is comforting. I needed this.
    Thank you for your channel. I listen the sermons oftentimes at night in bed with the lights out.
