“The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.” Proverbs 10:22 (KJV)
A divine friendship is a relationship that God forms between two people, of which He is at the center. As long as God is at the core of it, it continues to be divine. These relationships are edifying and enriching, easy to enjoy and pleasant, and are a tremendous blessing from the Lord. There is no sorrow. Divine friendships challenge your spiritual growth, allows you freedom to be yourself, pushes you towards fulfilling Your purpose, and improves the overall quality of your life. However, sometimes even the most divine friendships can become sorrowful. This can be an indicator that God is no longer at the core of the friendship. If God was the One that formed it, He must remain in the center of it. Rather than spending so much time chatting about life, marriage and the kids, be sure to devote some time together in prayer and sharing about the Word of God. This will help strengthen the love within the friendship and will protect it from the tricks of the enemy.
Prayer: Father God, I pray You bless me with a divine friendship. I pray that You will stay at the center of it and strengthen it with Your love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
