TITLE: Am I a friend of God? 11/23/13

The target audience is to encourage readers to Trust God and allow God to be a friend in their lives.
In the Bible, Jesus knew he was going to be crucified. He knew of the plots and trickery the chief priests, the scribes, and Judas had planned against Him. Jesus was aware of everything, because He is God. He is the Creator, the Most High God, the only True God, and an Intelligent God. He carried a love for the people who had a scheduled day to betray and kill Him.

Even today, He loves us although we continue to not recognize the order He established for us to live by. The Creator reaches out His hand to each of us, every day. God is saying to us, “Friend, why?” When Jesus called Judas friend, he was offering Judas his friendship and giving him a chance to turn away from his wicky ways.I would like for you to envision this in your mind. Jesus was facing Judas. Judas had a multitude of soldiers behind him to capture and kill Jesus, but yet Jesus still called him friend. That’s powerful.

There are everlasting benefits of being a friend to the Most High God. Abraham experienced those rewards when God said “Should I hide what I am doing from Abraham” (Genesis 18:17). This versus allows us to perceive the thoughts of God. When you are obedient to God and seek God, He will reveal things to you that you need to know. Through Abraham’s obedient he was able to save his brother and his brother’s family from the judgment of the Sodom and Gomorrah. This is what God desires to do for us today.

If you are feeling discouraged or maybe you don’t know of God or maybe you just need strength, we asked you to take that step of faith and allow God to be your friend. He already acknowledges you as a friend; He is just waiting on you to answer him by saying yes on today. Allow Him to show you how it feels to have a peace of mind by casting your worries on Him, He cares for you. He forgives you as He did Judas. It doesn’t matter what sin you have committed, because He still has His hands reaching toward you, saying “friend”.

A Prayer for Today

Father in Heaven, forgive me for all the days I have betrayed you. Teach me how to walk according to your word; I am willing to be your friend. I desire to have a close relationship with you by reading your word. In Jesus name, Amen.
