Proverbs 18:24 Even a man who has many companions can be destroyed. But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
I am a friend of God: It is unlike any other friendship I have ever been in. I trust Him completely and I know no matter what happens in my life, even when I get it wrong He will not let me down, criticize me or hurt me, Because He loves me, unconditionally.
Friendship involves loyalty. For many of us we haven’t received a lot of that in the circles we have mixed in
pre-recovery. But as Bob Dylan says “The times they are a changing.”
He is a friend that sticks closer than a brother and I am glad He calls me His friend.
- Are you a friend of God’s?
- How often do you get together?
God’s love is meteoric, his loyalty astronomic. Don’t lose your grip on Love and Loyalty. Tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart. No worker can serve two bosses: He’ll either hate the first and love the second Or adore the first and despise the second. You can’t serve both God and the Bank. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field.
Psalms 36:5 ~ Proverbs 3:3 ~ Luke 16:13 ~ James 4:8
Proverbs 3:11-12 Dear friend, resent God’s discipline; don’t sulk under his loving correction. It’s the child he loves that God corrects; a father’s delight is behind all this.
Proverbs 3:3-4 Don’t lose your grip on Love and Loyalty. Tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart. Earn a reputation for living well in God’s eyes and the eyes of the people.
