The Danger Of Isolation

— Sola Sorinolu,

Did you know that no lion would dare attack a herd of buffalos? The strategy is for the lion(s) to isolate a buffalo and pounce on it, digging in with claws and teeth. I know that much from NatGeo Wild.

As it is with animals in the jungle so it is with humans. The enemy’s strategy remains the same: isolate and kill.

Hence, God’s injunction in the garden of Eden: “…It is not good that man should be alone…” Gen.2:18.

When God discredited isolation in the garden of Eden, the principle doesn’t only apply to marriage but also to life and living.

 Never Take Your Market Lead For Granted

A big reason for isolation is the thinking that no one understands your pain or the challenge you are going through. But forgive me for bursting your bubble:

“No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man…” 1Cor.10:13

Your challenge is not unique or special. That is what the enemy would have you think! When you know this, you can be more open to cultivating a prayer support group. It can be with a Christian friend/colleague. The person agrees with you in prayer to surmount your challenge.

“…if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven” Matt.18:19

Don’t fight your battle alone.
