HE WOULD NEVER LEAVE YOU, HE IS A TRUE FRIEND.
Proverbs 18:24 – A man [that hath] friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend [that] sticketh closer than a brother
Deuteronomy 31:6 – Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he [it is] that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
Psalm 8:4 – What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
There are times when we feel so discouraged, worried, frustrated, depressed etc. in those times, we always feel this urge to talk and pour out our mind to someone but we don’t know the right person to talk to.
In those moments, I want us to remember that Jesus is always there to listen to us. This reminds me of a song:
‘What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and grief to bear
what a privilege to carry
everything to God in prayer…’
Jesus is a True friend and anytime we face challenges, we should call on him because he would always be there to listen to us and help us.
Prov 18:24 portrays Jesus as a friend who sticks closer than a brother. This verse reminds us of God’s everlasting love for us. I wondered why God used ‘stick’ and I checked the meaning; Stick means to hold to something firmly.
Jesus is our present help in times of need and he would never leave us nor forsake us (Deut 31vs 6).
‘What is man that you are mindful of him’ (psalm 8vs 4). Mindful means conscious, careful not to forget. Jesus is ready to pay attention to all our needs. Let’s rely on his word and promise for us.
#Pray Lord I thank you for your promises for my life. Help me to acknowledge that you are always there for me and you would never leave me nor forsake me in Jesus name.
