Proverbs 18:24a “A man that hath friends must show himself friendly...”

A child at kid’s camp was found crying. “Nobody wants to play with me; everybody hates me.” It was a heartbreaking moment for me when I heard it. To be without a friend must be a horrible existence. Imagine yourself without your circle of friends; and you begin to imagine the loneliness that is attached to that. If you have one good friend, you are blessed. If you have two, then you are double blessed. If you have more than two, you have something many people will never have.

Friendship is very important. The songwriter said it best- “A friend of Jesus, O what bliss; that one so vile as I could ever have a friend like this, to lead me to the sky.”

Psalm 70:1 “Make haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me , O Lord.”

In this verse, the Psalmist is desirous of the immediate help of God. I think all of us have been at a place where we feel that we need God to come to our rescue quickly. When in distress, we need Him so much. Many distressing things arise that put us in the place of the Psalmist; and we cry out for God to please hurry to help. The good news is: He will!

Many times I have cried out to Him. Even when my problem is of my own making, His great heart responds to my call. Blessed be the name of the Lord!

Isaiah 56:12b “...when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not.”

These are the words of the Lord to the rebellious Jews. The charge is simple, yet very serious—ignoring God’s call, doing evil in the sight of God, and choosing the things God doesn’t love. These three charges will send Israel into bondage for a generation.

In our day, many are making the same choices on a different level, but the result is the same. Wrong choices will set the pattern for a generation of hurt and disappointment. We must determine to “choose the holy joys that always last, and reject sins pleasures that will soon be past.”

Proverbs 14:34 “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”

AAs we approach our Nation’s birthday on July 4, this scripture stands to remind us that America has many righteous people that have kept the Nation from great destruction because of their prayers. We firmly believe that the last election was decided by prayer. The radical left has no idea how powerful the prayers of the saints actually are. While the left claims collusion with Russia cost them the presidency, we know that collusion with heaven did.

We also believe sin is a reproach to any people. We must live careful lives so that we do not add ourselves to the reproach list by careless living and sin.

America has a great history with trusting God. We must pray that it continues.
