“There are “friends” who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24
There is nothing quite like a brother. He is someone you should be able to count on throughout your life. He is loyal, faithful, trustworthy, encouraging, and dependable. He is there to celebrate victories and walk through the valleys of life with you.
Sadly, family relationships and friendships may not always turn out the way they should. People aren’t always who they seem to be. Sometimes people let us down, leaving us with feelings of loneliness.
Circumstances can also seem ominous and discouraging at times, tempting us to feel frightened and alone. There are many people who are completely isolated right now, unable to see loved ones due to the recently imposed restrictions. Loneliness and fear are at an all time high, but I want to encourage someone today that you are NOT alone!
I want to remind you that there IS a friend who sticks CLOSER than a brother. God will send those kinds of friends to us and we can be that kind of friend to others.
The best news is that Jesus NEVER fails to be that friend to us! Our imperfections don’t scare Him away and our circumstances don’t shake Him.
Regardless of who may have walked out or betrayed you in the past, and no matter how alone you may feel in your current situation, He is with you today! Meditate on HIS truth to you! The feeling of loneliness is an illusion from the enemy. The TRUTH is that He has never and will never leave your side. He is closer than the air you breathe! I speak supernatural peace and encouragement to you in this moment wherever you are!❤
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
