Friendship (Elements of Existence) #atozchallenge

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”

Psalm 91:1-2
New International Version (NIV)

       God is our Heavenly Father, but he would also like to be a friend to us.  He is the most perfect friend that any of us could ever imagine.  God is that friend who is always there and never lets us down.  He is one in whom we can have absolute trust.  However, he will not force his friendship upon us.  He waits patiently for us to invite him to come into our lives.  He draws us to him yet does not smother us with oppression.   We must believe and receive.

       The friend who will lay down his life for you is the most perfect friend that you can imagine.  Jesus did exactly that.  He bore your sin so you can be saved from the wrath of judgement.  That judgement is not the bad deal of a back-stabbing sort who says they are your friend then turns on you in the end.  The cards are on the table before you.  The inevitability of consequences of choosing sin and denial of the Creator are the torment of a life apart from God.  No force.  Your choice.

        A true friend is here before you ready to let you into the gates of Heaven.  Will you accept his generous offer or will you go down the dark road to your own destruction?   God wants you to walk with Him.   Seek his friendship now.

And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,” and he was called God’s friend.
James 2:23


  1. Very rightly said.
    well pal,i got the same thing in poetic form though :) https://uniqusatya.wordpress.com/2015/04/07/f-friendship-is-for-all/

  2. So true that God will be your best friend, but he will not force himself upon you.
