A Friend of God
Are You not our God, who drove out the inhabitants of this land . . . and gave it to the descendants of Abraham Your friend forever?
2 Chronicles 20:7, NKJV
Recently I was invited to address a group of professional women golfers the night before the U.S. Women’s Open. I was struck by the intensity of their focus as they pursued their goal of competing in and winning the golf tournament. Their entire lives, including diet, schedules, activities, friendships, and material resources, revolved around their one purpose—of being the best golfers they could be. I told them I also had a similar sense of purpose that dictated where I went, how I spent my time and money, what I said and did, and who I interacted with. For approximately the past twenty-five years, I have nailed down what I believe to be God’s purpose for my life, and I have sought to achieve it. Simply stated, it is to increasingly grow in my personal knowledge of God as I follow Him in a life of faith.
I want to know God today better than I knew Him yesterday. I want to know Him better next year than I do this year. I want to know Him until one day, like Abraham, God refers to me as His friend!
