Friendships are amazing but having a friendship with God changes everything. It changes who you are a person and where you stand in this crazy world. This is someone who comes to your rescue no matter if your right or wrong. Being inside his glory brings clarity into your darkest moments.
Have you ever listened to the Lord speak?
One time the Lord came to me in the middle of the night. My then boyfriend at the time worked the night shift so I was home with just my children. I hate sleeping by myself so that night my two boys laid in the bed with me. I noticed that my two-year-old wet himself in his sleep. Seconds later I noticed my newborn wet himself as well – so much it went outside his diaper. I didn’t even know that was possible! After cleaning them both, I walked to the kitchen to get cleaning supplies. That’s when I noticed my kitchen floor was completely flooded. Out of frustration, I yelled, “Why Lord?” But he answered….
“Everything you have asked for you shall receive. Pressed down, shaken together and running over. That little boy you keep praying over…..stop worrying about him. He will take care of you during your last days. Tell your friend that her daughter is in heaven with me. She is fine”
When his presence left I cried with tears of joy. What an amazing God we serve to come and have a conversation with me in my time of need. See, I prayed over my newborn because I feared SIDS, and my friend daughter was just murdered the week before so the Lord knew her pain. Months later the Lord blessed me with a new home, a marriage, and a new career. Everything he promised, he did!
I don’t know about anyone else but I can’t lose my friendship with the Lord. I need that type of relationship that is going to speak life into my prayers. Someone that is coming to talk to me in the middle of the night because he knows his presence is welcomed and that I need him. If you don’t have a relationship with the Lord I beg of you to reconsider all your relationships because none is more important than one with him. ❤
God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.
