God cares for you

Our hearts grow fonder when someone from very far say that they remember us. How much more comforting it is to know that our God remembers us always. The Psalmist says in ‘Psalm 8:4’ – “What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him?” For God to remember us, it means He cares for us and does good to us.


This verse is better understood when we first realize how small we are in this vast universe. Where are we in this universe, with its infinite number of galaxies, milky ways, clusters, and super clusters? How much of the mass do our bodies contribute to this universe? We are insignificantly small. Aren’t we? Abraham says “I am nothing but dust and ashes” – Gen 18:27. Yet, God who holds the universe in the palm of His hand cares for us. Isa. 40:12


God remembered Noah and his family and all the animals that were with him in the Ark ‘Gen 8:1’, and He sustained them. God remembered Abraham and spared Lot during the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah ‘Gen 19:29’. God remembered Rachel and opened her womb. God said in the book of Isaiah –  “Can a woman forget her nursing child And have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, but I will not forget you. Behold I have inscribed you on the palms of My hand.” – ‘Isaiah 49:15-16’. Yes, He cares for His people.


God cared for our greatest need that is the salvation our soul. We are under God’s holy wrath because of our sin ‘Eph 2:3’ and we deserve eternal hell. But God sent His only begotten Son Jesus Christ as the Savior to fulfill all righteousness on our behalf and to take our punishment and die on the cross so that those who repent of their sin and trust in Him receive salvation.

When God provided our greatest need, He will definitely supply all our needs to live up to His glory. “He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?” Rom 8:32
He cares for you and me.

Be not dismayed whate’er betide
God will take care of you
Beneath His wings of love abide
God will take care of you
God will take care of you
Through every day, o’er all the way
He will take care of you
God will take care of you
No matter what may be the test
God will take care of you
Lean, weary one, upon His breast
God will take care of you
