BECOMING A BEST FRIEND OF GOD (2)                             Psalm 145:1-7

I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.(v5)

The second way to establish friendship with God is by thinking about the Word throughout your day

(2) Through continual meditation A second way to establish a friendship with God is by thinking about his Word throughout your day. This is called meditation, and the Bible repeatedly urges us to meditate on who God is, what He has done, and what He has said (Psalm 23:4; 143:5; 145:5) It is impossible to be God’s friend apart from knowing what He says. You can’t love God unless you know Him., and you can’t know Him with out knowing His word. The Bible say God “revealed himself to Samuel through his word (1 Samuel 3:21) While you cannot spend all day studying the Bible, you can think about it throughout the day, recalling verses you have read or memorized and milling them over in your mind. When you think about a problem over and in your mind, that’s called worry. When you think about God’s Word over and over in your mind, that’s meditation. You just need to switch your attention from your problems to Bible verses. The more you meditate on God’s Word, the less you will have to worry about. The reason God considered Job and David His close friends was that they valued His Word above everything else. (Job 23:12; Psalm 77:12 (NLT) 

Friends share secrets and God will share His secrets with you if you develop the habit of thinking about His Word throughout the day. God told Abraham, Daniel, Paul, the disciples and other friends His secrets Genesis 18:17 Daniel 2:19 1 Corinthians 1:7-10) (Rick Warren)

PRAYER LINE: I look up to You, Father, for You are the One who can make me Your best friend. I pray in Jesus’ Name Amen
