A Friend of God
Scripture: James 2:  And the scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness,” and he was called God’s friend.
Observation: Does my belief credit me righteousness. Do I step out in faith and do good works that result from strong faith? I so desperately want to be called a friend of God. A friend is trustworthy, someone you can depend on, he’s there when you need him, can confide in and someone you want to be with. That is what I want to be a friend of God’s.
Application: I need to start acting like a friend. Get off my butt and be available to God. Show Him I love Him by what I do and say. Be available when He needs me and go out of my way to please Him.
Prayer: Dear Lord thank you for being my best friend. Now show me how to be yours. Have me do the things that would make you proud of me and draw me closer to you.
