More Than A Friend
Posted: Sunday, June 26
2 Kings 9:14-10:31
Verse of the day:
He is my loving ally and my fortress, my tower of safety, my rescuer. He is my shield, and I take refuge in him. He makes the nations submit to me. (Psalm 144:2)
In a different translation “He is my loving ally” is stated as, “He is my goodness.” When we blend these two thoughts together we realize a couple of things. First, we have nothing good aside from what God gives us—His goodness. Secondly, we realize that He isn’t just a protector, He is a “loving ally”—not just there for us out of duty, but rather out of love and concern for our wellbeing.
