Moses said to Joshua, ‘Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff (rod) of God in my hands.’
- Wherever we go and whatever we do, we must make sure that the Lord is with us. - We must not do things in our own strength or in our own wisdom. - The ‘rod of God’ was a symbol that the Lord was with them. - Now, as you face the day, take hold of His hand, and He will give you the victory.
Prayer: Lord, thank You that You are with me. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, because You are close beside me. Your rod and Your staff protect and comfort me. Amen.
Daily Bible Verse: Isaiah 43:19
‘See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.’

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.
