Morning by Morning, August 27 - Best Friends Forever
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Let me hear what You're saying, see what You're doing, sense what You're saying, here in these first moments of my morning as I wait upon the leading of Your Holy Spirit, embraced in the arms of my Father. ...
"Thus the Lord used to speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend" (Exodus 33:11).
Lord God Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, You are the God of all creation, You are the Lord of all the universe, and yet You humble Yourself to speak us. You even delight to speak to us as friends (John 15:12-15).
Abraham was a "friend of God," and by the mercy of Your grace and the mystery of faith, so am I (James 2:23). So are all Your children who embrace Your love and Your grace as Father and Friend. Abraham and Moses knew You so intimately in their journey with You as friends, yet in Christ, we are now in relationship with You through an even "better covenant" with even "better promises" (Hebrews 8:6). "Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is so high that I cannot attain it" (Psalm 139:6). "O the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God!" (Romans 11:33) Yet, it's all true.
You love us like a Father and journey with us like a Friend -- the best Father we could ever have and our Best Friend Forever. I praise Your holy name and embrace Your holy friendship, as I let Your truth sink deeply into my soul. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
