It is a great feeling when a friend has words for you that you really needed to hear. You may be going through a difficult time, and they have words of encouragement that help lift you up. Or perhaps you are experiencing feelings of self-doubt about a certain situation, and they bring you the reassurance you need to get you back on your feet again.
God is such a friend. He genuinely cares for His children and wants the best things for us. His Word helps encourage and lift us up when we need it the most. He is the ultimate best friend because while we know that He cares for and loves us deeply, He also pushes, and sometimes challenges, us to strive and be the best version of ourselves that we can be.
Are you feeling a bit discouraged? Are you going through a moment of uncertainty and self-doubt? Find encouragement in the verse shared in this devotion and listen to what God wants to share with you today. It may be just the Word that you really needed to hear.
God, You are an amazing friend. You come through for me when I need You the most. Thank You for Your words that help encourage me and build me up. I appreciate the friendship we share.
