Friend that Sticketh Closer than a Brother

Tonight was an exceptional blessing. As I prayed I said to the Lord that I wanted to know Him and speak with Him and be to him as Abraham, who was a friend of God, as Moses who spoke to Him as a friend to a friend. That is when the Lord said to my heart you can have that be so much more for I am your Father and you are my son, my adopted son. This means He chose me. Now I know He chose every human being in the world but some did not and have not accepted His choice, but I did as many who will read this did. Therefore we are special because we are adopted. Rom 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

Not only are we adopted and He is our Father but Christ is our elder brother Rom 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint- heirs with Christ;. What could be better than a friend to friend relationship? A Father/son relationship and a brother to brother relationship in which the brother is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. How can a brother be more than a brother, when He is also your Friend and your Father. So tonight I realized that we have so much more available than simply a friend. We have a Father/son relationship, we have a Friend/friend relationship and the Friend is more than a Friend, He is a Brother, whose Friendship is greater than a Brother, because He is my Father. I know this sounds a little like, I am my own grandpa but it still blessed my soul that He, who is all in all wants to be all these relationships and more, to each of His children.
