“Who are they that live in the holy fear of God?
You will show them the right path to take.
Then prosperity and favor will be their portion, and their descendants will inherit all that is good.
There’s a private place reserved for the lovers of God, where they sit near him and receive the revelation-secrets of his promises. Rescue me, Lord, for you’re my only hero.”
Psalms 25:12-15 TPT
One of the incredible things that attracted me to the person of Jesus was that he can be our friend. Who would have thought or conceived this idea of God being our friend and close ally?
Yet, it’s true. Jesus offers his close friendship, his confident intimacy and established fellowship to us all.
I have witnessed this truth also that there is a special connection between Christ and his followers (he calls them friends) whose hearts and minds are lifted to God constantly, them who love God above all else, with them Christ has special fellowship and deep intimacy.
We say about a couple that has a very close and deep relationship that they look like and think alike. That’s the idea here.
When we revere, honour and walk closely with God, we know his mind, hear his heart and do his will.
( See John 15:15, Genesis 18:17, Proverbs 3:32, 1 Corinthians 2:14)
