Daily Devotional for Saturday April 7, 2012
Does Anyone Care
Does anyone care? As we start the weekend, a time of rest for many, we start to dwell more intensely on those problems and concerns we have in our life. It is easy to get so busy with work and our daily routine Monday through Friday, that we can forget or push to the back of our mind many of the problems we are dealing with in our life. But when the weekend comes and our lives slow down a bit, those issues become the focus of our attention. We can't hide from them any longer.
For many of you, those problems that you are facing have been problems for a long time. You have prayed, and prayed, and prayed. You have turned them over to God, taken them back, and turned them over again. Despite all of the praying and agonizing, there are some problems that just don't go away and you start wondering if anyone is really listening. Does anyone really care about what you are facing?
Let me give you this word of encouragement today my friend. The Bible proclaims that God not only hears our prayers, but answers them as well. It is His good pleasure to bless his children. We have that precious promise to, "Cast our cares on Him, because He cares for us." No matter what your mind may tell you, your faith has got to step in and give you the assurance that God is hearing your prayers, and no matter how you may feel, when all others abandon you, God is always there . . . there to love you, hold you, and comfort you.
HE CARES FOR YOU!!!
Don't let those problems you have today ever let you think that God is not hearing your prayers. He is. Don't ever get to the point where you feel no one cares. He does. Go through this day with the confidence and assurance that God knows and understands your situation, and be comforted that He loves you and will never leave you nor forsake you.
God bless you this day as we walk in the victory won on Calvary's cross. He is risen. Because of that, if you know Christ as your Savior, no matter what may be happening in this life, you have already won. Even though your life is still playing out, you already know the ending. You win because HE WON! Amen.
***As we complete the first week of April, we still need to cover the last $5,000 of our March operations and than begin to work on the $40,000 we need for our April operations. Please take a moment this special weekend and pray about sending a special gift to this soul-saving work of God that has faithfully been serving people worldwide for nearly 13 years now. It is the prayers and sacrifices of friends like you who have made all of this possible.
