You don't have a friend until you have someone who will pray day and night just to see you excel in life. You'd be unwise to think you have a friend because he sponsors your material and financial needs. What many people have are acquaintances, people who are either for what they are for, or against what they are against. The fact that I gave you a thousand dollar doesn't make me your friend. I may be your help, but I've not become your friend until I take spiritual responsibility for certain issues around your life. God called Abraham His friend because Abraham was ready to give anything to fulfill the plan of God, including sacrificing his only son.
Job was very sick, but he couldn't imagine his healthy friends facing the wrought of God, so he quickly prayed for them. Friendship is being dead to self for the purpose of another. Friendship is not something you confess with your mouth, it's something you profess with your acts. It's not a bad thing to give me money, but give me prayers first. If a friend can stand for you in prayers, he can stand for you in anything.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; THERE ARE A THOUSAND AND ONE PEOPLE WHO GIVE TO ME, BUT NOT MANY OF THEM STAND FOR ME IN PRAYERS. BE A FRIEND TO SOMEONE THIS MONTH, AND EXPERIENCE THE BLESSEDNESS OF FRIENDSHIP. Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
