It’s okay to desire a true companion in life, one who walks with you in agreement, whether it’s a friend or significant other. The word, ‘companion’, means, one who keeps company with another, one with whom a person frequently associates or converses. One who accompanies another. A partner, an associate.
A lot of times we find this type of companionship in our friends, relatives, or in a significant other. We spend time with them and we converse with them frequently, whether on the phone or in person.
However, in those times when they’re not there, remember the Friend you have who is always there, just waiting for you to call on Him. Not only is He always waiting for you, He’s always there with a word of encouragement, never to judge you but simply listen and steer you in the right direction because He knows and wants what’s best for you more than you do.
No one has your back more than God has your back. You never have to clarify yourself with God, because He knows and hears your heart. People may disappoint you, but your best friend, Jesus, never does. People may hurt you, even unintentionally at times, but Jesus always knows the right things to say, and He’s always there. Never take for granted the privilege you have with Jesus as your ultimate companion. Your best friend forever is just waiting on you to etch time out of your day to chill with Him; and He’s so happy to hear from you every time.
The secret [of the sweet, satisfying companionship] of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He will show them His covenant and reveal to them its [deep, inner] meaning. Psalm 25:14 (Amplified Bible)
Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. Psalm 73:25
