Friendship and fearing God

October 17th, 2012

The Bible says in Psalm 24:15 “14?The LORD is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant.”

I love the thought behind this verse – being friends with God. “The LORD is a friend to those who fear him.”

God offers intimate and lasting friendship to those who fear (revere and have deep respect for) Him, to those who hold Him in highest honor and put Him above all things.

If we stop and thik about it for a moment, what relationship could ever compare with having the Lord of all creation for a friend?

I love my wife and kids with all of my heart, but having God as a friend is a relationship at a whole new level. It is on an eternal level.

As believers our everlasting friendship with God will grow as we respect and honor Him more and more. It is a promise found in Psalm 24:15!

Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me to revere and honour You in the right way. Help me to put You above all things in my life. I pray that as I do this, our friendship will grow and grow. Amen.

God Bless,
