This topic is so timely, so apt , just given to me by the Holly Spirit to give liight to the efficacy of isolation and the plausible effect. Yes you heard me right, there are advantages to ponder on, predisposing us to view these period as great times.
This occurs when we choose to appreciate and celebrate such unique moments that enable classic visitations. From viewiing documentaries on the animal kingdom we are prone to the understanding that the isolation of an animal from the herd , can be more or less suicidal as the prey becomes more susceptible to death obviously. This account or singular cause and effect leads to the conclusion that the best way to live and be preserved will be amidst communities, groups or people of likeminds.
Incidently many were repulsed with this idea of social distancing ,in promoting Social solitariness even to sensibly encourage a person to self isolate to wave away symptoms that eventually crush the pandemic. This has been the most effective of remedies as these disease decries contact .
For a moment, the subtlety will be my choice to propose the Spiritual attrubutes of being alone with God, which is the only point of real and life changing encounters , especially with the strange popular solution that enforces isolation as the wisdom of the day. Then again, there is never a point where instructions and visitations happened to too many people at the same point ever in history, the truth must inevitability rear its head, unapologetically. Clearly Deliverance, healings, Revelations and even Scientific discoveries are happenings triggered at the point of aloneliness or solitary confinements.
That place of serenity is never common place . For example, the new Testament depiction of the woman at the well, lays credence to that fact, aa this particular woman had in some ways become a recluse of some sort. The fact that she had been with five husbands was in total violation of societal validation of her day,
Therefore many women will obviously keep away and men will choose the moments to relate with her in secrecy. Hence her going to the well by herself was not necessitated by her choosing but compulsion. Traceable to her multiple marriage are features linked to outstanding physical beauty or even her being a woman of much substance,,
Perharps Royalty, however this does defend or protect her from being avoided or sowewhat oustrasised . Without much doubt the reality of our experience does reflect an insatiable appetite or thirst that men or man could not satisfy or resolve.
Quite often a person especially women who fail in relationships or who appear loose or without virtue are seen to lack confidence or possess some personality depreciation. This woman as she encounters the Lord does not appear so , not in her speech or composure. She seems to know and appreciate her heritage as she firmly affirms the fact that she dwells amongs her people .
Her arrticulation suggests confidence not devoid of information. Jesus says to her, if you know who is asking you for water, you will know you will never thirst. She in turn asks if Jesus is greater than her father Jacob , who gave them the well . Do you know most women are oblivious of their surrounding , with no current ideas and zilch awareness. From this perspective, this woman displays uncommon vitues but does experience constant rejection inspite of her qualities .
Many who are being tossed to and fro by men and even the Social space need to encounter a greater power. Human beings are flippant and that person that loves today can readilly reject the next day. A time to reflect to interface with Jesus must happen in the quiet place . No other human intervention must occur at this point of encounter, there are just two, you and the Supernatural, to avoid the depletion of familiarity and distorted interuption 。
At that lonely corner like this woman , the neediness or unmet desires is replaced with much transformation Inspiring asignment . This woman without any training transformed into an evangelist,, whilst many had lost count, Jesus revealed to her the exact number of husbands , telling her secret to the extent of exposing the truth that transpires issues and denials, revealing that the one she is with can not stay . She knew this in her. heart , was possibly petrified pondering on how, what, when or who to tell her story. Overwhelmed, empty , thirsty , desperately seeking an encounter, she meets Christ.
Many are in this situation in this lockdown. There are many voices too much agitations ,Covid this and that, yet the Lord will rather supp with you. Principally in the midst of this all, the humility to reach out and have your thirst assuage should be the focus. Many like Martha are concerned , encumbered with many distractions.
The urgent task Meanwhile portends that God wants to touch as many of us, who can take valuable time to communicate, translating this to a great hour of resolving issues, to gain insight and receive visions for greater dimensions. These are not devastating or hours of depression rather we must allow for Holly Spirit wholesome Intervention , that will manifest significantly resulting in innumerable Testimonies. God is Definitely in this, do not be afraid nor be overly distracted.
