Jesus, My Friend by Regina A. McKinney


He has caused His wonders to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and compassionate. Psalms 111:4 (NIV)..Now I ask you, who could ever measure the great Love and Compassion our Lord has for each of us? For, as a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him; Psalm 103:13 (NIV) …thus, in this verse fear is more clearly understood as reverence for God.

God is always with us, protecting, helping, and guiding us. David said about him: “‘I saw the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Acts 2:25 (NIV) …now that does not mean that we will never have a problem, but it does mean that He will help us if we ask Him to.

Further, we know that we live in Him and He in us, because He has given us of his Spirit. And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in Him. 1 John 4:13;16 (NIV)

Therefore as a Child of God, just think about the Enormous Love and Compassion Jesus has for you! After all He smiles with you, laughs, and cries with you. He has promised us; “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you. Isaiah 54:10 (NIV) So my friend, as the Old Hymn states, “What a Friend We Have in Jesus!” Oh, what a Friend we have indeed!..Amen!
