Be A Loyal Friend Of Jesus
Precious child of God, I greet you in the name of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. Today, we are going to meditate on a beautiful promise verse which is taken from Proverbs 8:17 where the Lord says, “I love those who love Me, And those who seek Me diligently will find Me.”
In the Bible, we read about Abraham, our forefather who loved the Lord with all his heart. As mentioned in Isaiah 41:8, II Chronicles 20:7 and James 2:23, Abraham was called the ‘friend’ of God. My friend, are you leading a friendly life with God? Is He your only friend? Examine your standing with God, today. Please do not mix up Jesus with all your other friends. Jesus is incomparable to any human love. He can only be your true, best friend. Personally, in my life, I have had no friends except Jesus. That’s why the Lord has been graciously blessing me until today. In the same way, Abraham also sought the Lord diligently. He followed the Lord faithfully. Nehemiah 9:8 testifies to this: ‘God found Abraham’s heart faithful before Him.’ That’s the reason why Abraham was blessed abundantly by the Lord. Proverbs 12:22 says, “Those who deal truthfully are His delight” and II Thessalonians 3:3 also says “The Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.”
Precious Heavenly Father, thank You for speaking to me through Your Word. Lord, even now, I commit my life into Your loving hands. Lord, please forgive my shortcomings and remove every unrighteous way out of my life. Fill my heart with Your presence. Help me to seek You diligently with all my heart. He me to be faithful to You as You are to me. Lord, please help me to build a strong friendship with You and to please You in all my ways. Change my life completely, Lord. Bless me like You blessed Abraham, Lord. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
