This morning, right when I woke up, I heard the words “when you lose your best friend”. Immediately I thought of my own best friend of many years and I got concerned. I asked the Lord and he told me that was not it, but this word was for someone.
One of the saddest sights I have seen, happened at the funeral of my sister-in-law. Her best friend was sitting not too far from me at the funeral. I could feel her pain. I knew how close they were and could imagine the pain because I have a similar relationship with my best friend. Suddenly the grief hit her and it was like convulsions. It was so sad
So what happens when you lose your best friend? There is a lot of grief when something dies. There will be pain and there will be mourning, but you will get through it. I don’t think God is talking about a literal death. I think God is telling me there is a “best friend” or close relationship that is dying, about to die, or has been reckoned dead by God..
When something is dead, there is nothing left to do but bury it and keep moving. What you don’t want to do is keep something dead around. Just imagine how gross it would be to keep a dead body around.
God has reason. If He allows it to die, there is a reason.
King James Version (KJV)
22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.
