1 Samuel 23; Psalms 31, 54; Matthew 7
“Saul’s son Jonathon went to David at Horesh and helped him find strength in God.”
1 Samuel 23:16
A true friend takes us to God to find strength. Our friendships are a source of strength in themselves; however, they move to another level when we help each other find strength in God. The Holy Spirit was sent to the Church for this very reason. He is closer that a brother. The Holy Spirit desires to be our Comforter, our Counselor, our Strength and our Source of Peace in the storm. If we will get to know the Holy Spirit as our closest friend, we will never be alone. The Holy Spirit will pursue us and meet us where we are, even if it’s in a desert on the run, hiding and afraid. The Spirit’s words of comfort, encouragement and strength are exactly what we need in every situation.
Will we befriend the Holy Spirit?
“Lord Jesus, thank you for sending the Holy Spirit. Thank you for being my closest friend in every situation I face. Thank you.”
