Bible Verses About Loneliness: 22 Helpful Quotes

by Daryl Evans · Print Print · Email Email

No one likes to feel alone.  I think that deep down inside all of us is a desire to be loved and to be with other people.  One of the earliest words of God in the book of Genesis is that it is not good for man to be alone.  Many times we can feel all alone even if we are around other people.  Satan uses this against us many times so that we feel that we don’t matter or our testimony cannot be effective.  God’s word has much to say about loneliness.  If you are feeling alone today, consider these verses.

Featured Bible Verse Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”

Bible Verses About Actions When Feeling Lonely

Isaiah 41:1  Listen to me in silence, O coastlands; let the peoples renew their strength; let them approach, then let them speak; let us together draw near for judgment.

Psalm 147:3  He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

Psalm 27:10  For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the LORD will take me in.

Matthew 28:20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

1Samuel 12:22 For the LORD will not forsake his people, for his great name’s sake, because it has pleased the LORD to make you a people for himself.

John 14:18 “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

Romans 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?

Romans 8:39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”

Loneliness Verses In The Bible

Feel the presence of the Lord today and talk with him when you feel alone or in a desolate place.

Psalm 38:9  O Lord, all my longing is before you; my sighing is not hidden from you.

Psalm 13:1  How long, O LORD? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me?

Romans 8:31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Psalm 23:4  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Psalm 139:1-2 O LORD, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar.

Verses Using “Desolate”

Luke 5:16 But he would withdraw to desolate places and pray.

Jeremiah 26:9 Why have you prophesied in the name of the LORD, saying, ‘This house shall be like Shiloh, and this city shall be desolate, without inhabitant’?” And all the people gathered around Jeremiah in the house of the LORD.

Matthew 14:15 Now when it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a desolate place, and the day is now over; send the crowds away to go into the villages and buy food for themselves.”

Mark 6:32 And they went away in the boat to a desolate place by themselves.

Mark 8:4 And his disciples answered him, “How can one feed these people with bread here in this desolate place?”

One of the great things about the God we serve is that He is with us all the time.  Our God is not bound by any limitations and he is omnipresent which is hard for us to understand.  Feel the presence of the Lord today and talk with him when you feel alone or in a desolate place.  God desires to communicate with you today so that you can enjoy the best life ever…a life with Christ.

Praise Him!!

I am coming up to 64yrs old this December. I live by myself,i have no social life,no friends,and i have a mental health problem.
It`s Anxiety State leading to deep depression.I just stumbled on this site about a year ago,when some thing very profound happened to me, it was the Holy Spirit. I used to be a Roman Catholic,but i saw through them by what they teach(Vatican) I told Jack about not going to a church,but he did not know my problem,and when i told Jack he apologised,and i said you did not no my problems their is no need for an apology. He never told me the answer to the church problem. I just want to go to bed all the time. It`s evan hard typing this out. I also have the habit of masturbation,but it is five days and nights that i have not done it. Jack knows about this. When you live by yourself all sorts enter your mind. Sorry i cannot type any more.

Just know that in Jesus, we have a friend that sticks closer than any brother. God is with you and understands your hurts and needs. I do encourage you to find a church or a group of believers that can help you. Reach out to them and tell them your struggles. Maybe find a pastor and meet with him and tell him why you feel alone. Praying for you today. daryl

My group of friends left me out without any specific reasons, and I believe I did not do anything wrong to them.I asked them what did I do until they left me ( about 7 – 10 of them), one of the group said nothing wrong. I was not totally invited to the events organized by them ( all of them are christians too , but not from same church – same school). I was very depressed for about 2 years time – my studies slow down eventhough my scores are good.

“When you live by yourself all sorts enter your mind. ” I agree with this statement. But when dealing with loneliness make sure we don’t fall to the group / person who do / does not belong to us just to compensate the loneliness feelings.

I should be grateful that I still maintain my integrity not to commit mortal sins actions – adultery, addictions etc. depressions hit me to the extent at which point where I had to have some suicidal thoughts for few times. I spent time more sleeping than awake sometimes when it gets unbearable, studying non-stop makes me feel more frustrated and sad sometimes, Walking at night sometimes make me feel better while start conversation with Jesus deep in my heart trying to search for the light .

I “walk” with my feelings aimlessly, but keep searching for something good that I can read daily, weekly or anything on regular basis.

One of big challenges in today’s world is dealing with loneliness — most of the times people look for place to “escape” with this feelings rather than searching to overcome it.

It hard to find a true friend in today’s world. I hardly trust people.

I am truly glad that i found this website. thank you, my searchings were all worth it.

Please keep posting new articles.
I visit this web on daily basis.

I am 64 yrs old now,and I have lived by myself for about 22yrs now. My GP treats loneliness has an illness.
My GP asked me if i spoke to people in the surgery,shops,buses i said yes. I have not made one friend in all that time. He commented you are very unlucky, life has not been kind to in the last 3 yrs. It`s not for the want of trying
At my age i still think young,and i don`t regard myself has old. You are quite right it is quite difficult to find a friend in to days world.


Seriously Speaking October 14, 2013 at 4:15 pm

It is very true that God said man should not be alone. there are just too many very high maintenance women out there now that think they are God’s gift to men, especially the ones with the attitude problem which makes it very hard meeting a good woman for many of us men today. I always thought that i was going to meet that special woman for me to have a family with, but so far that never happened.

I am a high school student who recently transferred from a Christian School, to a Public School. I am not participating in sports because of my schedule. It is hard to find friends because everyone has known each other since kindergarten. I may have someone to talk too, but as soon as their friends come along I am left trying to catch up and squeeze in for conversation. I go in 20 minutes early because that is what time my parents drop me off. I used to try to find someone who would talk to me. The ones who do are usually in band or have their group of friends around them. I have lately been meeting up with my favorite teacher and do errands for him. When he is not available I go into the commons and read. It is hard because I feel like I have no friends I can hang out with.
I did find these verses helpful and comforting. I know God is always here in my heart and he will never leave me, it’s just sometimes you forget it.

I divorced about a year ago. My youngest child just started college this year so I am alone a lot now. I have been feeling very sad and lonely. I cry all the time and I feel a lot of anger for my ex because of the choices he made. I divorced him because I could not handle the way he treated me. Now I fear that I will be alone for the rest of my life. I am a Christian and go to church, have a lot of friends, and work 2 jobs. Staying busy helps, but there are those quiet times when I think too much and my heart aches for someone to be with. Laura L.


Nikki January 1, 2016 at 4:06 pm

Thank God for this today. After a beautiful God-filled time at church last night, I woke up heavy this morning. I know and understand God’s word very well but the feeling I couldn’t describe. Then I begin to exam myself to see was I in the faith. Shortly I realize I was heavy from the spirit of loneliness that had sat right on me without warning. My boys were gone with their father and I was alone in a different way. I’ve been saved and single for two and half years. I thought to myself, God has established me and restored the things that I have lost in my life. Lord can I have a mate that you will choose for me? Before I could finished asking. My teachings and this uplifting article help me to realize I’m never alone. God said He will never leave me nor forsake me. One thing I have to be is patient, God hear my prayers and know the desires of heart. So today I will continue to let patients take her perfect work. I will continue to be steadfast and unmovable always abounding in the work of the Lord. I’m not looking back, nor am I not thankful for what He has done in my life. So whatever state I’m in, I am content because I have a surety in the word of God, it won’t be like this always. Loneliness is an spirit that opens the door to depression and a form of a complaining spirit too. What I mean by that, you begin to focus on what you don’t have instead of being humbly grateful for All that the Lord has blessed you with. This blog has encourage my spirit and I’m spirit man has risen above and beyond my so call feelings and I’m walking in my Christ like attire again. These moments come but just like a storm, they will pass over. Thank you very much and know that this posting truly has not been in vain. Love you with the love of Christ and have a blessed 2016!!!


Jack Wellman January 1, 2016 at 4:25 pm

Hello Nikki. Thank you my friend. Even though I’m not the fine author of this articles, I agree with you. I believe you are so right my friend in Christ, contentment is the key. That’s so hard for me. God is so forgiving and infinitely beyond 7 times 70. May God richly bless you in your joy, which is evident.
