Sometimes in all our trials and storms of life, we forget that God is still near and wants to hear about our hurts and bruises of our spirit and wants us to ask Him to help guide us to the haven of rest. Yes, God still cares! Let’s open our Bibles to Isaiah 40:27-31. Note in verse 27 that He see our every need. 27Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God? NOTHING IS HID FROM GOD! [ Psalm 139 ]
I know He cares because he sends trials my way to mold me and allow me to grow in Christian character. [ To be more like Jesus each day until we see Him and we will be like Him ]
6Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:
7That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: [ Romans 5:2-5; James 1:2-4 ].
I know He cares because He made me! Isa.40:28Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. Psalm 139:
13For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.
14I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
15My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Yes, God made me,He loves me and will take care of me and He does the same for you if we ask Him too! This reminds me of the great hymn, God will take care of you, through all the day, o’re all the way, God will take care of you. This is stated in Isaiah 40:
28Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
29He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
30Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
31But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
