What A Friend of God Would Tell You:
Lesson 2 of The God of The Bible

"He that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him."-Hebrews 11:6

Why wonder what a friend of God would tell us about Him?  Because, if you really want to know who someone is, you ask their friends!

In Lesson 1 of your God of the Bible Bible Study, we talked about how the essence of God is Love.  But, we have all heard the saying that actions speak louder than words.  And who knows someone's actions better than their friends?

Plus, if becoming God's friend is your ultimate goal, you should at least know what kind of relationship you have to look forward to, right?

So, what would friends of God in the Bible say if we could ask them one question: Who is God...Really?

A Friend of God Would Tell You...

He will reward you for seeking Him: "He that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him."-Hebrews 11:6

He will keep you safe from the enemy: "He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God."-Psalm 91:2

He is reliable and you can trust Him: "God is not a man, that He should lie...hath He said, and shall He not do it? or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?-Numbers 23:19

He thinks about you and even makes plans for you: [As for me] I am poor and needy, yet the Lord takes thought and plans for me. You are my Help and my Deliverer. O my God, do not tarry! -Psalm 40:17(Amplified)

And, my personal favorite:
He is your Helper.

Reflect on These Promises From God's Word:

I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
*My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
*He will not let your foot slip—
*He who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
*The LORD will keep you from all harm—
*He will watch over your life;
the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
-Psalm 121 (NIV)

Reflection Question

1. What does the term "Friend of God" mean to you? Do you consider yourself to be God's friend? Why or why not?

2. Can you identify with any of the experiences with God that the people in the Bible had? Reflect on a time when He was you fortress or your help.

Optional Activity

Print or write out the Scriptures that we went over today. Take time over the next day or so, and meditate on them. Roll them over and over in your mind until they become a part of who you are.

God loves you. He wants to be your Friend. He wants you to know Him intimately and the first step to that is soaking yourself in His Word and finding out who He says He is.

In Lesson 3, we will take your understanding of the Person of God to the next level. Learn about the beauty of the most divine relationship:The Trinity.
