“and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, ‘Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness’—and he was called a friend of God.”
Faith is so simple! All we have to do is believe God is who He says He is and that He will do what He said He would do. It can be easy to forget that God is not just the sovereign creator of the universe but that He is also our friend. Unlike our earthly experience with relationships, God is perfectly trustworthy and of utmost integrity. He will never say a word He does not mean or make a promise that He will not keep. When we keep a steady gaze upon Him, we don’t just receive a savior; we gain a friend.
"GOD IS PERFECTLY TRUSTWORTHY AND OF UTMOST INTEGRITY."
LORD, thank you for your friendship. Even though my life is an infinitesimal blip in eternity, you still care for me. Please forgive my unbelief. Forgive me for chasing the pleasures of this life that don’t compare to the joy of knowing you. Help me turn aside from distractions and the lies of the enemies and put my faith in you.
