When you need a friend

We’ve all heard the saying “It’s not how much you know, it’s who you know.” It always helps to know someone higher or in a better position than yourself who can put in a good word and make things happen.  

You have a friend called Jesus!! A friend who is faithful every day.  A friend who is an amazing source of support and is always working and interceding on your behalf, no matter the circumstance.  Jesus makes things happen by praying for you ! He is your mediator, advocate, and the bridge between you and God.  He holds the key to the joys of your soul. You can count on Him. He will not abandon you. There ain’t nothing you can do about His great love for you! Just trust and know that your steps are being directed by your best friend ever! Stand true on these promises!

John 15:15     Greater love has no one that this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
