Be a Friend of God by Jeanette Jaycei Collins
It’s obvious some people are closer to God than others. These “close friends” of God speak of talking to Him as if they know Him personally. Their faces shine with the enthusiasm as they testify, “And God told me …” while skeptical acquaintances grumble to themselves, ” Well, God doesn’t talk to me like that!”
Why is that? Does God have favorites? No Scripture teaches that each person determines his or her own level of intimacy with God, depending on their willingness too seek Him and put time into developing a relationship with Him. Everyone has been extended the same open invitation to “fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw to the throne of grace” (Hebrews 4:16). At this moment, you are as close to God as you choose to be.
And [so] the Scripture was fulfilled that says, Abraham believed in (adhered to, trusted in and relied on) God, and this was accounted to him as righteousness (as conformity to God’s will in thought and deed) and he was called God’s friend. James 2:23
A woman on the path; chosen by God to see growth EVERYDAY!!!
I am a simple person who enjoys the simple things in life. I am a homebody who enjoys being around family and friends. I enjoy the challenges in life because I really believe that they come to make you strong and to prepare you to bring others out of the battles that we ourselves have won.
I am happy being me, as I look back over my life it has not always been easy, yet I am still standing! Praise the Lord!!!!
