Cares for Me
thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will
strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right
hand of my righteousness. Isa. 41:10
The Lord is in active communication with
every part of His vast dominions. He is represented as bending toward the earth
and its inhabitants. He is listening to every word that is uttered. He hears
every groan; He listens to every prayer; He observes the movements of every
one. . . .
God has always had a care for His people.
. . . Christ taught His disciples that the amount of divine attention given to
any object is proportionate to the rank assigned to it in the creation of God.
He called their attention to the birds of the air. Not a sparrow, He said,
falls to the ground without the notice of our heavenly Father. And if the
little sparrow is regarded by Him, surely the souls of those for whom Christ
has died are precious in His sight. The value of man, the estimate God places
upon him, is revealed in the cross of Calvary. . . .
God's mercy and love for the fallen race
have not ceased to accumulate, nor lost their earthward direction.
It is true that disappointments will
come; tribulation we must expect; but we are to commit everything, great and
small, to God. He does not become perplexed by the multiplicity of our
grievances, nor overpowered by the weight of our burdens. His watchcare extends
to every household, and encircles every individual; He is concerned in all our
business and our sorrows. He marks every tear; He is touched with the feeling
of our infirmities. All the afflictions and trials that befall us here are
permitted, to work out His purposes of love toward us--"that we might be
partakers of His holiness," and thus become participants in that fullness
of joy which is found in His presence.
