Created To Be God's Friend: How God Shapes Those He Lovesby Henry Blackaby
The way forward is, of course, not always easy. Sometimes, Blackaby explains,
Through years of prayerful study, Henry Blackaby has uncovered powerful ways God shaped Abraham to be His friend. The Bible's amazing portraits of Abraham, Blackaby tells us, show how God can make a follower a true friend, and how faith and obedience lead to a lifetime of joyous blessing.
The way forward is, of course, not always easy. Sometimes, Blackaby explains, God uses difficult events, traumatic experiences, and even our own faithless choices to lead us on to spiritual maturity. But from the first time we respond to God's call through the choices that carry us farther along, Abraham's story rings with assurance. Created to Be God's Friend demonstrates that God can be trusted to take us to a new place of purified character, growing love, and untold benefits.

This book helps you discover how to be God's friend. He has always been my friend, but if you aspire to become His friend, here is a map. Abraham's life was meant to be a pattern for us to follow, not just a great story in the Bible. Hearing God's voice and following in obedience and faith is the greatest journey you will ever take. That is what I found in this book.
