Day 11 – How can I become Best Friends with God?

How can I become Best Friends with God?

Even though the Lord who reigns from everlasting to everlasting is my maker [Psalm 95 vs. 6], Lord and master [Psalm 136 vs. 13], redeemer, Father, saviour and many more – God also really wants to be my friend, so that I can enjoy a relationship with Him free of guilt and fear and to live in God’s continual presence.

Adam and Eve enjoyed an intimate relationship with God, He was a friend of theirs [John 13 vs. 13 – You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord’ and rightly so, for that is what I am – 1 John 3 vs. 1 – How great is the Love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God], and they basked in His presence. After their fall, very few people in the old testament were close friends with God, in fact, their relationship was out of fear, yet, Moses and Abraham were called “friends of God”, David was called a man after God’s own heart, and Job, Enoch and Noah had ultimate friendship with God [Ex. 33 vs. 11 , 17 – I will do the very thing you have asked because I am pleased with you and I know you by name; 2 Chronicles 20 vs. 7; Isaiah 41 vs. 8; James 2 vs. 23; Acts 13 vs. 22; Gen. 6 vs. 8; Gen. 5 vs. 22; Job 29 vs. 4].

But now, because Jesus has come and fixed my broken relationship with God, God wants me to come back to Him so we can be friends again – Rom. 5 vs. 11 – Not only is this so but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation; 2 Corinth. 5 vs. 18] and calls me His friend – [John 15 vs. 15 – I no longer call you servants because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead I have called you friends for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you].

The fact that God wants me for a close friend is hard for me to understand, a great privilege I would never fully comprehend [Jer. 9 vs. 24]. Yet all He wants is for me to be His friend through constant conversation, by sharing my day to day activities and experiences with Him through prayer without ceasing [I Thes. 5 vs. 7], changing my attitude towards what I do and doing it for the Lord – whatever daily chores I find myself doing, for God is always with me wherever I am [Ephesians 4 vs. 16 – Father of all who is over all and through all and in all]. To train my mind to remember Him throughout my day and to meditate on His word – 1 Joshua vs. 8 – Do not let this book of the law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written on it; then you will be prosperous and successful. Because I can never know Him without His word which will help me in loving God – 1 Sam. 3 vs. 21 – revealed himself through His word; Psalm 25 vs. 14 – the Lord confides in those who fear Him; He makes His covenant known to them.

Lessons Learnt on Day 11

That Friendship with God is a Privilege, not to be thrown away. To cultivate an attitude of continual conversation and meditation even if I don’t feel like it at times – To focus my thinking on God. To be a woman after God’s own heart, who has found favour in the eyes of God. To be a woman who pleases God, whom He can truly call a friend.
