Yes God Does Care!

dsc_0028Does God care?  Just look around and you will see that our world is in a mess!  Most people are living a “just getting by” kinda life!  There is unhappiness, dissatisfaction, frustration and discouragement all around.  People are just hoping that everything is going to be okay.  But, I want you to know that God does care!

If God does care – what does He care about?  Most people believe that there is a God!  But most people don’t really believe that you can have a real relationship with Him.  A relationship that changes your life today and for all eternity.  When life spins out of control we need to remember and remind ourselves that God does care and God wants to have a real and meaningful relationship with us.  And I want you to remember that God cares about you.

A lady by the name of Hannah is found in I Samuel chapter one and when we find her she is in a bad place.  She is married to a man that she loves and that loves her, but she cannot have a child.  The man that she is married to has another wife that has given him children and she picks at Hannah every chance she gets, because Hannah is barren and can have no children of her own.

It is important for us to remember a few things about this life that we live.  First – All things that come or fail to come into our life are allowed by God!  Second – God is sovereign and in control!  Third – We need to humbly recognize God’s hand behind the circumstances of life!  (GO back and read over those three again and take some time to think through them!)

Hannah was distressed and depressed.  She prayed and she wept.  Sometimes when life gets really hard, the only thing left to do is cry and pray!  Hannah was disappointed – life was not working out the way that she had planned!  Hannah was dissatisfied – life was not living up to it’s expectations!  Hannah was discontent – life was passing her by and she was not willing to sit by and watch it!  When life get so tough, that we think we can’t take another day – we have to decide what we really believe!

Some people live with an attitude of fatalism – they say to themselves and those around them:  If God is sovereign, then who am I to do anything about it?  Others choose to live life with an attitude of resentment – they say to themselves and those around them:  If God is going to treat me this way, then I want nothing to do with Him!  We need to live life with an attitude of faith – we should say to ourselves and those around us:  I know and trust in God’s sovereignty and His goodness toward me!

Romans 8:28 reminds us:  “We know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”

Romans 8:38-39 says:  “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

God Is Good Good And God Does Care And Don’t Let Anyone Change Your Mind And Heart About That!  Victory Is Yours – So Go Out And Get You Some!
