One of the common processes on our favorite social networking sites is to send a friend request. Have you ever gotten a request from someone you did not know? Have you sent a request to a person you were interested in befriending but they did not accept it? Their lack of response often makes us feel a little bit rejected.

acceptedGod does not refuse us. I am so glad that He accepts our friend request. He was just waiting for us to ask. Proverbs 18:24Proverbs 18:24
English: American Standard Version (1901) - ASV

24 He that maketh many friends [doeth it] to his own destruction; But there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.

states, “One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”

Jesus is our special friend because He knows us better than anyone else. He knows all about us. He loves us just the way we are. He wants only the best for us. He always has time for us.

God indeed is a friend that sticks closer than anyone else. Other friends may fail but God never will.  I am reminded of the old hymn, “What a Friend We Have in Jesus”.
