David not only had good text-book information about God, he knew God. Do you speak to God like this? What verse stands up and grabs your attention? Meditate on it.
“The friendship of the LORD is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant.”
Here we have a very important truth for us.
We can be friends with God!
How amazing is that, the God who created all things with His word, and continues to sustain all things with His power – This God, we can know Him as friend!
In John 15 Jesus says,
“You are my friends if you do what I command you.”
We see then that the fear of the Lord and obedience to what He tells us to do are wrapped up together.
Because this is our God. This draws us to a higher understanding of friendship. That the holy and righteous God would call us friends, while still maintaining His nature (all-powerful, all-knowing, all-seeing, all-everywhere).
Hallelujah, what a friend we have in Jesus!
* Holy God,
Thank You for Your love for us Your people.
Thank You that we do what You tell us because we love You, it is the outworking You call us to.
Thank You that we can call You friend, as we walk in reverence before You, as we submit under and go about Your sovereign will.
