God’s Caring in the Everyday

I’m always amazed and interested in how God tends to give me thoughts for my own edification and for the purpose of sharing truth with others. Recently at work, I came across a discarded folder as I was taking one of our dump trailers to the dump. It had been placed in there by one of my coworkers and was from one of our local hospitals. Normally, I wouldn’t have thought about it any more than he did (I am NOT a dumpster diver!), but there was something about a little pamphlet inside the folder that caught my eye. It said God’s Caring in the Everyday with a subtitle that read Tips for Curing Soul Fatigue. So, that day at the dump, I felt compelled to pluck that little book from the garbage and in this article, (and the articles that will follow), I feel compelled to share some of the things in it with you!

First of all, it’s important to focus on the title-God’s Caring in the Every Day. Remember, God cares. The entire Bible is a record of God’s intense concern for man. Of course, that Divine interest and involvement was powerfully demonstrated in the sending of Jesus Christ (John 3:16). God DOES care. Such a simple truth, yet one that we so often shakily believe.

Perhaps, we can have faith that He does when all is well, but how about when things are not? How do you feel about this timeless principle when things are spiraling out of control and life becomes impossible to handle? May Peter’s message in I Peter 5:7 remain with you no matter what-[H]e careth for you.

Not only should you remember that God cares, but you need to realize that He cares every day. I’m not talking about mere mental recognition of this fact, but an experiential recognition of it. To put it simply, you know He cares every day, because you have personally experienced that care every day. My dorm supervisor at O.B.I. used to get us boys up every morning for devotions and would say “I’m glad He woke me up this morning and started me on my way.” Bro. Snow knew of God’s daily care! Do you know of it? Scripture declares [b]lessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits (Ps. 68:19). He is not sporadic or occasional in His involvement in our lives. He daily cares for us.

If you happen to be weary in your soul, it’s time for a renewed focus and a revived faith in the God Who Cares Every Day!
