Your Brother In The Storm

Your Brother In The Storm…

Proverbs 17:17 says, “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.”

Likewise Jesus was born to become your brother and to share in your adversity. He was born to become your brother – to share in your birth.

Not just to share in your joy, but to take up the adversity of the world – your pain, your burdens, and your sorrows so you would never be alone. When you’re in sorrow, in your valleys, in your time of loss, when it looks like you’re abandoned, you’re not going to be abandoned by Him.

He’s going to be there with you in your time of adversity. His presence may be gentle and often unnoticed, but He will always be there, your best friend and your closest brother.

How faithful is He to you? So much so that He was literally born to be with you in your worst times. A friend loves at all times, so love Him at all times.

Live a life worthy of what He gave for you. For a friend loves at all times, but Jesus, your brother, was born for adversity.

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. John 15:15

Today, draw close to Jesus and soak in the love of your closest Brother and dearest Friend.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
