We can be confident of the fact that the God that we are called to serve, the Creator of and Sustainer of everyone and everything, loves and cares more about each one of us than we could ever begin to imagine. The Word of God is very clear when it speaks to us about asking God to help us with every aspect of our lives. In 1 Peter 5:7 we find these words: “Cast all of our cares upon Him because He cares for us.”
A heart-broken little girl began to kneel and pour out her heart to God in the altar at her church. She did’nt know what to say. As she wept speechless, she began to remember what her daddy had told her, "God knows your needs even before you pray, and he can answer when you don’t even know for what to ask." So she began to say her alphabet. An adult from that church knelt beside her and heard her crying and saying her ABC’s and asked what exactly she was trying to do. The little girl told this caring adult, "I’m praying to God from my heart." But the adult answered, "It sounds to me more like you’re saying the alphabet!" "Yes that’s what I’m doing" she said, "But God knows more about what I need than I do, and he can take all these letters and put them together in just the right way to hear and answer my prayers!"
God does care about you. No matter who you are, what you’ve done, or where you you’ve been. God does in fact love you and He cares about you. I would encourage you today to do as the little girl in the story above did and trust Him to take care of everything in your life.Rev. Mike Harbin
