God: what a fruitful friendship…
Micah 6:2-3 (KJV) “Hear ye, O mountains, the Lord’s controversy, and ye strong foundations of the earth: for the Lord hath a controversy with his people, and he will plead with Israel. O my people, what have I done unto thee? and wherein have I wearied thee? Testify against me”.
When you have hurt your best friend so deeply that the pains reverberate and impact your own senses, then you can identify a true and wonderful friendship. These types of friendships are few and far between and occur on rare occasions.
In our relationship with Jesus, He is forever seeking to be that true friend and build a relationship with us which can last, be supportive, beneficial, engaging and trustworthy. He wants a friendship which can restore and rebuild us when we get broken and down trodden. When we have a good relationship with Him, He offers this and much more; it’s not only one sided, for throughout the day it is good to check in on the praise meter and measure out praises worthy of adoration.
Surrender a good will offering to Him when it is the midday hour, much like Daniel did and give Him a song of Praise just as King David a man after His heart was able to offer; this and more is the relationship Jesus seeks with us.
Yet when we digress and walk far away from what He requires of us and we betray the trust, even like a spouse cheating on the other party, He gets to asking us, “o my people, what have done unto thee? And wherein have I wearied thee?”
Such pain, such hurt, such betrayal; your best friend is hurt and is crying out for the reason why your friendship cannot work; where was the lack, where was the lack of fulfillment? Your friend needs to know what wrong was found in Him that you could walk away and turn from loving Him truly.
One thing about this best friend is that He refuses to let go of a good friendship, because the friendship is valuable to Him. Won’t you cherish this friendship just as much?
