There Is a Friend that Sticks Closer than a Brother

As Christians we have a deep need to continually experience the constant abiding presence of God in our lives. In our human relationships we desire closeness, but no one can be with us at all times as God is.
He is always watching over us and is with us wherever we may go. He sees everything we do and knows our every thought. As His children, the Holy Spirit dwells within us. No one is as close to us as the Spirit of God, no one cares more about us. He is with us, He is within us, and He will be with us always.
"A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother" (Prov. 18:24).
"For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you"(Heb. 13:5).

Trusting God

If God has enough wisdom to control the oceans boundaries, the movement of the celestial bodies, and the instinct of the animals on earth, wouldn't He have more that enough wisdom to guide your life?
Thomas Boston one said, "To this wise God we may safely entrust all our concerns, knowing that He will manage them all so as to promote His own glory and our real good.
"The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold" (Ps. 18:2).
