God is Your Friend

Yesterday we talked about God loving us. Today we will look at more verses that David wrote. In these verses, David said that God was his closest friend. We can learn that God will be our good friend, too.
Psalm 23 is a favorite Bible chapter for many people. In this psalm, David shows us that God is our Shepherd. A shepherd takes care of his sheep by giving them green grass to eat and clean water to drink. “He lets me lie down in green pastures. He leads me by calm pools of water” (verse 2). A shepherd also makes sure that his sheep are safe. “Even if I walk through a valley as dark as the grave, I will not be afraid of any danger. Why? Because you are with me, Lord. Your rod and staff comfort me” (verse 4).
In the same way, God takes care of us. He gives us spiritual food from His Word, the Bible. God encourages us when we are facing bad times. And He blesses us with goodness and mercy all of our lives.
David knew that God was his friend. I hope you know that God is your friend. Let Him love you and take care of you today.
