Friendship With God

January 30, 2007

“The LORD is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them His covenant.”
Psalm 25:14 (NLT)

What struck me today is the LORD is a friend. In the King James Version it says, “The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him.” When you look up the word secret in Hebrew the word is cowd. Here are the definitions:

1) council, counsel, assembly

     a) council (of familiar conversation)

           1) divan, circle (of familiar friends)

           2) assembly, company

     b) counsel

            1) counsel (itself)

            2) secret counsel

            3) familiar converse, intimacy (with God)

I’m so glad that Jehovah is my friend.

Psalm 5:12 (NLT)
“For you bless the godly, O Lord, surrounding them with your shield of love.”

Is God surrounding you with His love? I know He is surrounding me!  I can’t tell you how many times that I have felt unloved, but I know without a shadow of a doubt that He is there for me whenever I call His name — JESUS!

All He wants you to do is call on Him. If you draw near to Him, he will draw near to you.

Ask God to surround you with His love and He will do it for God is love!

I’m on a journey again to read the Bible through in one year. I have read it before several times, but having an online community that supports each other through this journey is so awesome.

Mike, over at the One Year Bible Blog, found at www.oneyearbibleblog.com is going through the Bible daily. There are over 2221 members around the world who are taking the journey together.

A compliment to reading the One Year Bible Blog is a great website called, The One Year Bible-On-Radio, found at www.bibleonradio.com. I love the website as it has the capability to podcast!!! Okay — I admit it — I’m a techno junkie.!!!

Tom Dooley who narrates the The One Year Bible-On-Radio program has a great voice. Also, I have met him personally and he is a true man of God.

I’m on the journey….are you?
