Who Cares for us?
"Casting all your care upon Him — for He cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7)
WHO is it, that cares for us? It is the Lord Almighty — the high and lofty one who inhabits eternity, whose name is holy! It is He whom the angels obey, the seraphim adore, and all creation glorifies!
It is the Lord — who is so great, that we have no adequate conception of His greatness!
It is He who is so good — that it is impossible fully to set forth His goodness!
It is He who is so glorious — that no sinner can see His face and live!
It is He who created all things with His Word!
It is He who governs all things by His wisdom!
It is He who upholds all things by His power!
It is He whose resources are infinite!
It is He whose compassion is exquisite!
It is He whose patience is without limit!
But though he is so exalted, so happy, and so unspeakably great — He cares for you! He is the one who enters into all the circumstances of His people, is ever present with them, and rejoices over them to do them good.
He cares for you — as base as you are.
He cares for you — as sinful as you are.
He cares for you — as depressed and discouraged as you are.
HE cares for YOU! He cares for you individually, and according to the circumstances in which you are placed.
