Acts 28:21-22 (KJV) 21 And they said unto him, We neither received letters out of Judaea concerning thee, neither any of the brethren that came shewed or spake any harm of thee.
God’s workers can find themselves in a position where they’re seemingly alone, taken for granted, and forgotten. The silence of others in a middle of hardship doesn’t necessarily mean rejection, but silence itself may not really be the treatment either when encouragement and support is much needed.
Through reasons unknown, we may find ourselves seemingly lacking support from our co-workers. Yes, it would be great if we can receive communication from them that boosts our morale. It would be great if they would drop a good word about us here and there, but if they don’t, we ought to not be quick to conclude that they are not supportive of us. There are a million possibilities why. For all we know, they may be undergoing worse persecution or circumstance than we are. So, let’s keep serving the Lord – alone, or when submerged in overwhelming show of comforting presence or communications. And when we have opportunities, let’s make sure we become instruments of encouragement to each other.
Dear God Who never leaves us or forsakes us, with You, we’re really never alone. – In Jesus’ Name, amen.
