He cares for you!
"Casting all your care upon Him — for He cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7)
The Christian's life is very much made up of cares — and comforts.
Cares spring from earth — comfort comes from Heaven;
cares prove him to be a sinner — holy comforts prove him a believer;
cares flow in from a variety of quarters — true comfort from only one;
cares come naturally — but comforts come supernaturally.
We are sure to have cares — but shall we have comfort? This depends on God's grace — which gives it; and our faith — which receives it.
Cares must be cast on our God, or they will prove a burden too heavy for us — they will depress, bewilder, and make us wretched! But here is our comfort — we have always One to care for us; and the very one who of all others — we would wish to do so: "The LORD cares for you!"
