No More Separation But Unity

by Hazel Straub

Fear of harm can cause one to try to protect themselves from harm. When one is hurt by others, it is easy to isolate oneself so one will no longer be vulnerable to further offense or injury. In isolation, one is well defended from hurt by others. It is resolved that no one will ever be able to batter, bruise, damage, distress, or disturb again because one has gone to a well-defended place to say, “Never again!” However, isolation does not heal or bring unity.

A clarion call from God goes forth, “No more isolation, separation between others or groups but instead celebration. No more suspicion of others and their motives. The season of isolation of others, so you will not get hurt, has ended!.”

In this new season, there will be no placating or pleading with God. It is time to celebrate the victory, over the adversary of our souls, separation from others is finished. Jesus says, “Celebrate my victory with me.” He himself carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we would be dead to sin and live for righteousness. Our instant healing flowed from his wounding. (1 Peter 2:24 TPT)

Shake off the ashes of mourning and put on a celebration bash. I have given you the oil of joy, for the spirit of heaviness. “I am sent to announce a new season of Yahweh’s grace and a time of God’s recompense on his enemies, to comfort all who are in sorrow, to strengthen those crushed by despair who mourn in Zion—to give them a beautiful bouquet in the place of ashes, the oil of bliss instead of tears, and the mantle of joyous praise instead of the spirit of heaviness.” (Isaiah 62:2-3 TPT) Celebrate my goodness to you and praise Yahweh!”

  1. This is so, so good! I thoroughly enjoyed this read. It is captivating to ruminate on. My friend just posted something similar to this on Facebook about the importance of fellowship verses seclusion. Oh, the oil of bliss! That brings a smile. Thank you! Very timely!

    • BG, good to know this is a confirmation for you. We are so much together, rather than living in isolation! You are welcome! Keep smiling, living in fellowship not seclusion!

  2. “Isolation does not bring healing or unity.” How true, sister Hazel! These past two years have been hard ones for the church. It is time to heal through corporate prayer and worship. Thank you for your encouraging words!

    • Brother David, you are welcome! When we place our focus on Jesus and uniting in love, praise and worship, everything changes for the better. Colossians 3:13-16: “Bear with one another and forgive any complaint you may have against someone else. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which is the bond of perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, for to this you were called as members of one body. And be thankful.…”
