12 REASONS YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD IS THE BEST ONE YOU'LL EVER HAVE

There are times when people disappoint us. There are times when people hurt us. There are times when we feel excruciatingly lonely. BUT there is an ever-present, all-knowing, compassionate God Who cares for us and loves us regardless of our personal circumstances. When I think about the qualities I would most like to see in a close friend, God fulfills each one. 
  
Here are 12 reasons why our relationship with God is the best one we will ever have. 
  

1. He is always available, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, no matter where we are or what our circumstances. 

  

2. He is the best listener we will ever find. We can talk to Him about anything and not feel shame, guilt, or judgment. 

  

3. His love is unconditional. 

  

4. He is kind, caring, and compassionate

  

5. He looks after us; He protects us from harm. 

  

6. He opens doors to benefit us, and he closes doors that are not for us. 

  

7. He gives wise counsel; He knows what is best for us and helps to direct our path. 

  

8. He gently nudges us when we have done wrong and compels us to do what is right. 

  

9. He is patient and forgiving

  

10. He always answers prayers

  

11. He will never leave us or forsake us

  

12. He promises eternal life, and prepares a room for each one of us in our forever home. 

WOW! What more could we ever want?

    I needed this today. Yea God only is available to listen to me any time but I was not paying attention for His availability. Working hard to do on my own . But I am deciding to engoy His presence while it is time.

    Father, Paula loves you so much. But there are times when the world tries to distract her and pull her away. Your Word says that there is no temptation that we can't overcome when we are in You. I pray that Paula will feel your ever-present love in such a deep way, that her fear of drifting away will be replaced with a deep desire to draw closer to You. I thank you Lord for what you are going to do in Paula's life. In Your Name, Holy Jesus, Amen.

    Dear Edmund: With Jesus's death on the cross, burial, and resurrection, each of us as individuals now can approach the throne directly to talk to God the Father, at any time and under any circumstances! Isn't that wonderful? I will support you with prayer. Dear Heavenly Father, Edmund has shown his heart and expressed with his words that he is trusting You to heal him of the addictions in his life. 1 Corinthians 10:13 says, "No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it." Father, I pray that Edmund remembers that when he is weak, You will be strong. Thank you for Edmund's heart to want to rest, be, and live in Your presence so that the things of this world will no longer taste sweet to him, but only time spent with you. In Your Name, Amen.
