It’s easy and comfortable to force friendships from acquaintances, but God is calling His army together just as He assembled for King David’s rule.
Having an open hand with a closed heart gets you nothing but an empty palm. God didn’t lead them into the wilderness to die. He led them there so they might have eternal life.
A study showed that the number of close friends in 1985 was 3, while by 2004 it was zero. The number of people without any close friends in 1985 was 36%, and in 2004 it was 53.4%.
What a testimony to the power of a praying wife. God heard Lysa’s pleas, and blessed her with Art’s reconciling his life to Christ.
What makes us a good man, or a better man than who we were, is our pursuit of the example of the best man. Our Father is the ultimate alpha male.
David may not have been perfect, but his heart for God sure was. Don’t allow others to define your worship, or your relationship with God. He created us to know us in a very unique and special way.
