Mary responded, ‘I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.’ And then the angel left her.
- Are you ready to submit and surrender your life for His will and purpose? - Mary was chosen to bring great blessing and favour on all mankind. - The Lord also wants to use your life to reflect His glory and bring blessing. - Perhaps you do not fully understand His plan - do not let that stop you!
Prayer: Lord, like Mary, I want to humble myself and ask that Your will be done, in and through my life. I declare that: ‘I am the Lord’s servant. May everything You have prepared for me, come true!’ Amen.

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.
