“…for I have many people in this city”
These are the words of Christ to Paul. It is so easy to fall into the thought that we are alone and vulnerable when we are trying to live a life devoted to Christ. But this verse is something to stand on in assurance. Even if we were alone, we are not for Christ stands with us. The Lord will never leave a believer alone. He is also faithful to raise up fellow believer in various situations to help strengthen us.
Application: if you are feeling alone, or without another Christian to encourage you, then seek the Lord in prayer. He is faithful to provide, and He is also sufficient to lean on while waiting.
