God's Goodness Shown By His Constant Care

"Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you" (1 Pet.5:7).

This verse from 1st Peter is directly preceded by the famous one that tells us to humble ourselves under God's mighty hand that in due time, we will be lifted up. Peter is telling us that our being lifted up is directly correlated to God's constant care... David wrote almost the same words in Psalm 55:22, when trouble surrounded him... "Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall." The Bible is replete with words about God's constant care. To Timothy, Paul writes this; "But the Lord stood by my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. And I was delivered from the Lion's mouth" (2 Tim.5:17). Even the writer of the Book of Hebrews has his say about God's constant care... "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you. So we say with confidence, 'The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid' " (13:5-6). This verse confirms to us that in Jesus, we have a friend who will not forsake us. How many times have you been disappointed by someone that you thought you could trust? Maybe you were even let down by someone you considered to be a friend... During the day, lets all meditate on the constant care that Jesus shows to us. Maybe the hymn "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" will come to mind. It is then that we will be able to say with confidence; "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid...." "cast your anxiety on him because he cares..." "He will never let the righteous fall..." "But the Lord stood by my side and gave me strength...." Surely, God's goodness is shown to us by his constant care. God is so good...

Have a great day... Go about doing good... Love mark Phil.4:11
