I found out the hard way exactly what Psalm 108:12 meant when King David cried out to God and said Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man. It is so easy to place too much emphasis on a friendship - so much so that you begin to trust more in man’s efforts than you do in God’s. It took me a while to figure out that no human could help me when I really needed it. And so I have learned that first and foremost I must cry to my very best friend ~ the Lord Jesus Christ ~ when I am in trouble. And you know what ~ because I have learned that very valuable lesson ~ God has greatly rewarded me with different ladies who care about me (as I do them) and would do anything for me if I needed it ~ friends that tell me they love me ~ friends that rejoice with me ~ friends that cry with me ~ friends that make me laugh ~ friends that love my Lord too ~ friends that God has put into place. And I have all of that because I made Christ my very best friend ~ I am truly rich indeed.
Goodness, I get excited just thinking about it! Thank you Lord for being my very best of friends. Thank you dear friends for being the greatest ever! You know who you are!
