How Much Does Our God Care?

Do you ever wonder how much God cares about you? If you’re like most, this thought has crossed your mind at one time or another. God does care, a lot, in spite of all the negative things you hear from believers and non-believers alike.

Think back to a time when you found yourself in a real pickle. Your back was against the wall or you heart was broken by someone you love. In spite of man’s failings, God is always there for us and caring for us.

The following verses from the Old Testament describe just how much and to what lengths God will go to take care of you and provide for you. Read them. Study them. Memorize them. And, then when you begin to have doubts you can call upon these verses for comfort in your time of need.

Isaiah 46:4  Even to your old age I will be the same, And even to your graying years I will bear you! I have done it, and I will carry you; And I will bear you and I will deliver you.

Isaiah 58:11  “And the LORD will continually guide you, And satisfy your desire in scorched places, And give strength to your bones; And you will be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water whose waters do not fail.

Psalm 48:14  For such is God, Our God forever and ever; He will guide us until death.

Are You A Shining Example of God’s Love?

“Thus you are to know in your heart that the LORD your God was disciplining you just as a man disciplines his son.”—Deuteronomy 8:5

No one likes to be disciplined because it usually involves a degree of pain either emotionally or physically. When we are disciplined by God we scratch our head and wonder why. Suffice it to say God has a reason for it at that moment in time.

God’s word says in Isaiah 55:8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways” declares the Lord. There you have it. God doesn’t expect us to understand. Instead He desires that we remain faithful in our walk with Him no matter what our circumstances might be.

Hebrews 12:11 says, “All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.”

In other words, when God disciplines us, we are the better for it. The next time you feel the weight of God’s discipline on your life, just realize He is polishing off the rough edges of your life so that you can be a shining example of His love for you.
