Our Lord, Our God and Our Friend – Psalm 25:14

Today is Thursday and I am wondering how come the week runs so fast these days. I guess this is as a result of the fact that so many papers are due now at school and I have been so busy lately. However the good thing is that in all these, I am able to clearly discern the comforting presence of the Lord. There have been days in the past few weeks when I have just told myself to enjoy the Lord and let God do His part.

I have been enjoying the book of Psalm lately and I have been really encouraged again by the “realness” of the psalms. It talks about the great and exciting stuff, and also of sin, pain and forgiveness. A few days ago I read in Ps 25:14 that the Lord is a friend to those who fear Him. If that is not so comforting, what then would be comforting?

For the Almighty God to be our friends is an amazing thought. Not only does God live in us, He also desires to be our friends. To share His plans, to guide us, to allow us to bless Him, to bless us and lift us up, to show to the world the His is a great God and on…

My prayer is that in all circumstances, we would all learn to befriend our God, not in a disrespectful manner, but with reverence and unrestricted love. I think there is such a tremendous amount of spiritual experience tied to this knowledge of God as friend.

Note that it is those who fear the Lord that God becomes friends with. This implies respect, honor, worship and constant consciousness of God’s presence and love for us. I think, I am just beginning to see the fringes of this friendship, I intend to grow in this and to get more and more friendly with my Lord and my God.
