Just about all of us have someone that we consider a best friend – someone who knows everything about us and loves us anyway. It is easy to believe that a best friend will always be there for us when we go through tough situations and hard times. They are a tangible, living person that we can see and touch.
As much as God loves us, why can’t we believe that He cares for us much more than an earthly friend ever could? Why do we seem to second-guess Him much more than an earthly friend?
In Bible times, there were many heathen nations that surrounded Israel. They all had numerous idols and many gods who they worshiped. In fact, many of the people worshiped a god for every aspect of their life. They had numerous idols in their houses in hopes of the gods smiling down on them and giving them good luck and good fortune.
It was for this reason that God chose not to reveal Himself in the form of a statue that they could place on their mantle. He created the world and everything in it, so He would be able to meet every need of every person on the planet all at the same time. After all, He made every one of them and knew exactly what they needed.
Just because you can’t physically see God like you can a best friend does not mean that you can’t depend upon Him to meet your every need and help you in time of trouble.
When Jesus died on the cross, rose again, and went back to Heaven, the Holy Spirit came to live in the heart of every person who has accepted Jesus as their personal Savior. You can depend on Him to lead you in the right direction and show you how to pray for what you need.
You can’t physically see Him, but He is very real. Instead of depending on earthly friends who can lead you astray, depend on the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you every step of the way.
