SOMEONE CARES A LOT ABOUT YOU



Someone Cares A Lot About You
by Pastor Mark Taylor

“The very hairs of your head are all numbered.”  (Matthew 10:30)

God cares about you so much that he knew all about you physically, mentally, and emotionally before you were born.  “Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.” (Psalms 139:16).   And He loves you in spite of all your problems you have acquired since you were born. You were made with such care that even the number of your hairs was not by chance.

God knows more about you than you know about yourself.  Not one hair falls from your head without God knowing about it.  If each hair is valued, then our minds and souls must have much more value.  "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16).  

If God numbered your hairs, then He knows you personally and will be there for you when you have needs. “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:6-7).

Just because you are thought of with such detail, His love does not exempt you from the trials and difficulties of life.  Our Lord Jesus suffered while He was on this Earth and He warned us that we would to.  "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." (John 16:33).  No matter how difficult your life is, if you remain faithful to the Lord, you have great rewards waiting for you.  “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” (Romans 8:18).  

No one likes to suffer, but sin has brought chaos and problems into the world.  Sin is an agent of decay.  Once sin comes into a relationship, a community, or an individual it begins to destroy.  Satan’s goal is to undo what God has done by introducing sin into things that God has made “good”.

God cares for you by preserving you in this evil world.  The good news is that God is not just sitting back and watching evil destroy you.  In the book of Genesis, evil had become so widespread that God decided to destroy the whole world, but “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD” (Genesis 6:8).  God wants to spare you from the evil of this world because “He cares for you” (I Peter 5:7).  He is helping you fight evil.  “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.”  (1 Corinthians 10:13).

God cares for you by reversing the chaotic cycle of sin in your life when you accept the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior.    “Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18).  
God cares for you by demonstrating His love to you.  “For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:7-8).

God cares for you by providing a plan and purpose for your life.  “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.” (Jeremiah 29:11-12).  “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him." (1 Corinthians 2:9).

Because God cares so much for us, we need to care for others.  “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.”  (1 John 4:7).


Because God cares so much for us, we need to care for God. “I love the LORD, because He has heard My voice and my supplications. Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I will call upon Him as long as I live.” (Psalms 116:1-2).
