Paws and Ponder
A friend of God
James 2 :23 And Abraham believed God and it was credited to him righteousness and he was called a friend of God".
I sit in the family room, 5am (after getting up with a howling puppy) I smile as I watch him play and do anything to get my attention. I think to myself "Is this how God sees us?"
Precious in his sight, the apple of HIS eye, laughter filling His lungs as we delight Him.
Yes it is! The one true God is as near as we want Him to be. He counted Abraham as a friend and David as having a heart like his own. The true God isn't on a mountain top somewhere too busy to be involved, indifferent to His own creation...He is an intimate God, wanting to show love and friendship to any who choose Him. Not perfect, not without stuff, "Come to Me those who are tired and weary and I will give you rest," Matthew 11:28 tells us. Only a friend, one who cares deeply for you can offer this shelter. Won't you come and be at His feet today? I know that's where I want to be!
