What Does The Bible Say About Isolation

Isolation is not a good thing. We are designed by God to be in community with others. The Bible says that we should not walk alone, but rather walk with others who will help us grow closer to God.

Isolation is not a good thing.

Isolation is not a good thing. It’s easy to feel alone and isolated when you’re in the midst of a difficult or traumatic situation, but that doesn’t mean isolation will help you. In fact, isolating yourself from others can actually be dangerous because it stops you from getting the help and support that you need. It also prevents people from challenging and growing with you. Instead of isolating yourself, reach out to those around you for encouragement, growth opportunities, and more!

We often walk alone when we are not in fellowship with others.

But when we are in fellowship with others, we have the opportunity to encourage one another and share our burdens. When we are weak, other believers are strong for us. We can receive encouragement from those who understand what it means to struggle with sin and weakness. They can help us learn how to stand firm in our faith by the power of God’s grace.

We know that there are many things that we need as Christians—we need each other!

Use wisdom and discernment in dealing with people.

God’s Word is clear about the value of keeping your distance from those who are not spiritually strong. The Bible tells us to be careful who we trust and warns us against spending time with people who are not good influences.

  • Be discerning: Be careful whom you spend time with. Don’t hand out your password or other personal information to strangers or anyone else, including friends and family members who may have an ulterior motive.
  • Don’t be reckless: Don’t share too much information online unless it’s absolutely necessary, such as in a job interview or when applying for college scholarships (which will generally require transcripts). Your privacy settings should be set so that only friends can view your posts, but even then it’s wise not to share too much about yourself until you know someone well enough to trust them implicitly.

As Christians, we should also be wary of certain types of people: those whose lifestyles don’t line up with biblical standards; those whose philosophy doesn’t line up with biblical principles; those who are vocal about their disagreement or disobedience toward God; those who indulge themselves in sinful activities like drinking alcohol or using recreational drugs (including marijuana); etc., all these things are clearly condemned by God in His Word!

Allow the Lord to be your shield and defender.

Allow the Lord to be your shield and defender.

“The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.” — Psalm 9:9-10

“Our God is a God who fights for us! He will fight for us! He is our Shield and Defender! When I am afraid or overwhelmed by distress or terror, he gives me strength and courage that I do not have on my own. His power protects me from harm so that I can face my fears without being destroyed by them. His love protects me from sin so that I can live life with integrity before him.” — Isaiah 54:4-5

If you are walking with Jesus, you can be assured that you will never be alone.

  • You are not alone.
  • Jesus is with you always, even when we are not aware of it. He is the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2). When we pray, there is One who hears us and gives us what we ask for (Matthew 7:7). He knows our hearts better than we do ourselves, so he knows what we need before we ask Him.
  • Jesus is your friend (John 15:15), father (Luke 11:11) and shepherd (Psalm 23). He cares about every detail of our lives; nothing escapes His notice! Even when things seem hopeless or impossible to understand, God’s plan will work out together in perfect harmony if only you trust in Him completely!
  • Even though sometimes life feels like a stormy sea with waves crashing over your head… remember that Jesus holds you tight within His loving arms no matter how high those waves may rise against you! He wants nothing more than for us to put all our trust into Him so that one day soon He can come back for His children here on earth and take them home where they belong forevermore with their Father God Almighty Himself!”

Isolation is not a good thing. It can lead to depression, loneliness and even suicide. We often walk alone when we are not in fellowship with others. Use wisdom and discernment in dealing with people. Allow the Lord to be your shield and defender as well as your closest friend who knows everything about us including our faults and failures but still loves us unconditionally because He is our creator!
