FRIENDSHIP WITH GOD

Psalms 25:14 (TLB) Friendship with God is reserved for those who reverence Him. With them alone He shares the secrets of His promises.

As children, we used to run around and say, “I know a secret, I know a secret!”  Well, God has special things that He holds for special people.  Our Father wants to reveal them to those whose hearts are right with Him. You see, a secret is shared only with close friends.  I do not go and share my inner thoughts with just anybody.  No, I share them with true friends. And you know what? Those that have a respect and love for the Father, and that give Him that special place in their hearts, are friends of God, and He shares His inner thoughts with them.

Jesus said that He does not call us servants anymore, but He calls us friends.  So, as a friend of God, are we taking time each day to listen to His voice as He reveals His mysteries to us?  God’s secrets are revealed to those who reverence Him.  They are revealed to those who love and respect Him.  They are revealed to those whose hearts are for Him. God is not holding back from us, but He is looking for those who will take what He says to heart, and use it to bless others.  He has a treasure of wisdom for us, and He wants to pour it out to us.

So today, take time to tell your Heavenly Father how much you love Him and how special He is to you, and then watch and see how many things are revealed to you.  Take a few minutes, even now, and express your love to the One who loves you with such an intense love, that He would send His one and only Son to wash away all of your sins.


Confession:  Today I confess that I am loved of my Heavenly Father, and that I am His child; a child of a God of love.  God has called me His friend, so I am His friend.  It is amazing to think that the Creator of all things would call me His friend!  What an honor and privilege it is to be God’s child!  Thank you, Father, for revealing Yourself to me as I take time to worship You.  I am a child of the Most High God, and I love it!
