We all like friends. Some of us have many friends while others of us only have a few. Good friends are loyal and dependable. We feel close to them and know we can tell them anything. God wants to be our friend. He wants us to be close to Him and He wants to teach us how to live. When we fear Him, which is submitting to Him and His authority, He will become our friend and teach us His word.
Psalm ...25:14 “The Lord is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, what a friend we have in You! We are delighted that You want to be our friend. We are delighted that You want to share Your wisdom with us. We are delighted that You want us to draw close to You for Your protection and love. Help us today to live as You want us to. Help us today to understand how to fear You and understand that fearing You is good. Thank You Lord for Your word and Your friendship. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
