NOTE TO SELF: Look no further for your new BFF. He’s always been there for you, even if you didn’t realize it.
Have you ever had someone call you their best friend in front of others and you never realized that’s how they felt about you? That’s what Jesus does every single day for you. He stands before God and says, “That’s my best friend,” as He points to you. “I’d do anything for him (her). In fact, I already have, and continue to do so.” God then smiles and responds, “Then they are my best friend, too.”
Even when you’re not friends with God, whether you haven’t surrendered to Christ, or you’ve turned your back on Him, or just need a break from Him, God remains loyal to His friendship with you. From the day you were born, God looked on your beautiful face, brushed His fingers across your cheek and lovingly declared, “My friend… My child… My love…”
If you are not friends with God, heed His call, because He is already friends with you.
PRAYER: Dear Friend, we are so grateful that You consider us Your friend, too. We are confident that as our Friend, we can turn to You with all of our needs, heartaches, victories, and dreams. You are a Friend we can trust and depend on each and every day. Amen.
