Is He Your Best Friend?

Wow, already 2 1/2 weeks into the new year! Since starting back classes here at BBTI things have been busy. I have wanted to write to all of you sooner but I guess this will have to do! I appreciated hearing your comments and feedback over the last email concerning prayer and having a prayer partner. It will be great to see what God does in our lives this year!

Okay, so here is the next thing I wanted to share with you.

Whenever I think of the purpose of why we were born, why we have life, I remember Revelation 4:11 where it says,”…thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.We exist for Him! It always reminds me that I should pursue Him like I do no other.

Just think about this…

God Almighty
desires not just to be a friend,
but to be our All in All…everything we need.
He can totally complete us
. But how does He do this?
The answer is found in His Word

Here are a few questions I asked myself:

  • Is what He thinks of me more important than what others think?
  • How much time do I spend in His Word each day learning about Him? Do I guard this time?
  • How often do I memorize? “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”
  • Do I daily meditate on His Word?
  • Do I sing praises to Him and worship him with a clean heart? (Knowing that nothing is held back, all is surrendered, and He can speak to me about any subject.)
  • Do I trust Him to change me?

“With my whole heart have I sought thee:

O let me not wander from thy commandments.”

Psalms 119:10

Is He really my best friend and am I pursuing Him with all my heart?
