God is a friend to the friendless. He’s hope for the hopeless. He’s a shelter in the time of storm. He’s our rock in a weary land, our comforter in trial and trouble. And the only question is—what do you need Him to be for you right now? Whatever it is, that’s what He’s going to show Himself to be.
