Good morning #devo... Psalm 25:14 The friendship of the LORD is for those who fear Him, and He makes known to them his covenant.
I have never read this before. When I was little I used to view God as some big Guy in the sky ready ro squash me if I did something wrong. In my early adult years I just viewed everything as needing to be one big ball of love, and God was OK with love, and kept Him at a distance. Now I know the truth of this. It isn't fearing Him as being scared or afraid. Some Bibles include "revere" and "worship" in proximity to the term fear.
After all this time, I now know He is my friend and confidant, and shares with me, when I fear not being in His presence or being in intimate relationship with Him. He doesn't want to squash anyone and He IS Love, therefore the world can only be one big ball of It, if His love is shared by those who are His friends!
