Make God Your Friend
When one is friendless, God is at once his friend. Mary, Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, says, "Divine Love waits and pleads to save mankind—and awaits with warrant and welcome, grace and glory, the earth-weary and heavy-laden who find and point the path to heaven." Message to The Mother Church for 1902, p. 11;
Many, like Jacob, find themselves in dire circumstances that cause them to cry out to God for help. Jacob, fleeing from the wrath of his brother. Esau, whose birthright he had stolen, found himself in a "waste howling wilderness." Deut. 32:10; It seemed a bad start. Several years of Jacob's life were given in making amends. Yet, God his genuine friend, was with him through his difficulties, led him out of them, and prospered him.
It was in the "waste howling wilderness" that Jacob became acquainted with the God of his fathers. His extreme need was God's opportunity to make Himself known to Jacob. Woe prepared Jacob's thought to be receptive. When in a dream he saw a ladder reaching to heaven on which angels ascended and descended, Jacob responded to them. Angels are the means of communication between God and men. They are always present, but when human thought is self-satisfied, it pays no attention to them.
