‘The LORD blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the former part.’
- With God the ‘good old days’ cannot compare to what lies ahead. - We should not live in the past but we should look forward with hope. - The Lord is able to restore and bring you into a new and better season. - You may have been through a lot, but the Lord still has good things for you.
Prayer: Lord, thank You for Your blessing on my life. You have brought me to this point and as I trust You I know that the next part of my life can be even better than the best of the past. Amen.
Daily Bible Verse: 2 Samuel 24:25

The Closest Friend
December 27, 2019
I KNOW A FRIEND
I know a Friend who has been the ideal friend to me. I think the old songwriter knew the same Friend when he wrote that great song: ‘What a Friend we have in Jesus.’ I think the writer of the Psalms knew this Friend.
Psalm 54:4 But God is my helper. He is a Friend of mine!
If the writer of this Psalm knew this Friend and if the great songwriter knew this Friend and I know this Friend, then you can too. Let me introduce you to my Friend, GOD. He wants to be your Friend as well.
THE CLOSEST FRIEND
The Bible tells us about this Friend.
Proverbs 18:24 ‘There are “friends” who pretend to be friends, but there is a Friend who sticks closer than a brother.’
God wants to be our Friend and wants us to be His friends.
John 15:15 ‘I no longer call you servants … Instead, I have called you friends’
I want more of this friendship. More of this friendship for myself, and more of this friendship for you. We all need more of the friendship of the greatest Friend.
