Season of Isolation

Dear #PrisonersOfHope

 Just as there are seasons in the natural, there are also seasons in the spiritual. They say to be forewarned is to be forearmed. With natural seasons, if you live in the southern hemisphere, you know that end of winter gives way to spring, so when you approach the end of winter, you start making preparations for spring. But spiritual seasons have a way of catching us off guard and interrupt our lives.

A season of isolation is a place of complete separation, where you feel lost, unwanted or deserted, all alone. I too, experienced a season of isolation. Being the kind of person who does not take unpleasant things lying down, I fought a lot with God during this season. Until it dawned to me that I cannot fight God and win. I kept on loosing and loosing until I gave up control. Yes, I gave up control and calmed the noise in my soul, only then, did I realized that I am actually ‘alone in His presence.’ The most comfortable place to be in life is to be in His presence. You can loose everything but never loose your relationship with God.

Joseph in the book of Genesis 37 went through a season of isolation. Dumped in a pit by his own brothers, sold off into slavery and just when things seemed like they were looking up, Joseph was thrown into prison in a foreign land based on a false accusation. But God’s presence was evident in the life of Joseph, even his master Potiphar noticed that, Genesis 39 v 2 -4. Even in prison God was with Joseph, Genesis 39 v 21. Isolation prepared Joseph for his position as the second most powerful man in Egypt. Isolation from every other voice and source but God Himself, has prepared countless men and women through the ages for greatness. There are moments when your growth depends on the isolation, and that is preparation.

Because seasons of isolation are uncomfortable, we resist them and conclude that God must be punishing us, when in reality He is preparing us through isolation. You and I can learn something from the life of a caterpillar, in our season of isolation. “The caterpillar crawls on the ground barely escaping those that would step on and crush him. Then one day he climbs on to the tree where he is isolated then incubated then emerges as a butterfly able to fly over the heads of those that once tried to walk on him. If God can do that for a caterpillar, how much more will He do for you as He keeps you safe and warm until you are ready to emerge stronger than ever before”. Unkown.

Sometimes we need to understand that we have been isolated on purpose and stop resenting the fact that we have been “set apart”. When we embrace this season, we begin to discover things about ourselves that we otherwise would have never known. God also begin to reveal something about Himself that He cannot reveal to us while surrounded by people.

Don’t allow the pain of being isolated to arrest your desire to live. Remember that some of the greatest books were written in prison and some of the greatest ideas were invented in chains. It is once we are out of this season that we realize that God has never left our side.

In your season of isolation, do not allow the enemy to fill your mind with negative thoughts. The enemy will always try to convince you and I that our season of isolation is a time of rejection, and then we begin to feel sorry for ourselves, and we allow self-pity to drop our voices to a whisper. Once our voices have been dropped into a whisper, then we can no longer be the agent of change that God wants us to be for somebody else.

Are you feeling isolated and all alone? Not so, God is right there with you everyday as consistent as the beat of your heart. He has you just where He wants you. Remember He is Jehovah Shammah, He will never leave you, nor forsake you. He is strengthening you, giving you vision and revelation for the next season of your life.Next time you feel alone remember this “ A season of loneliness and isolation is when the caterpillar gets its wings.” Mandy Hale
