“God’s compassion is not something abstract or indefinite, but a concrete, specific gesture in which God reaches out to us.” ~ Donald McNeill, Douglas Morrison, and Henri Nouwen – Compassion (1982)


A Minister on television once said something that disturbed me. He said, “God isn’t moved by your pain; He’s only moved by your faith!” Is the Creator cold like that? Isn’t it true that God cares?

 

3 Proofs That God Cares

There are many verses in scripture that prove God cares. There are at least three major acts of His love that changed not only a nation but mankind’s eternal destiny.

  1. God raised up Moses in response to Israel’s cry in Egypt for deliverance. (Exodus 3:7-10)
  2. God the Father sent His Son Jesus to save humanity from eternal death and restore us back to Him. (John 3:16)
  3. God promises the total restoration of man to Himself. (Revelation 21:3-4)

~ Psalm 66:19-20

But verily God hath heard me; he hath attended to the voice of my prayer. Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor his mercy from me. 

 

God Is Merciful

God pours His mercy on everyone daily. 

~ Psalm 78:38

“But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.”  

See how God cares? No matter how much we do that displeases Him, He is merciful! He loves us and continues to call us to Him by the Holy Spirit. And when we respond in repentance or call on Him in a time of need, He hears us and responds!

~ 1 Peter 3:12

“For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers:…” 

 

God Cares

~ 1 Peter 5:7

“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”  

God cares about us. He cares for all, Christian and non-Christian alike. Everyone is born into sin. He still cares. He cares so much in fact that He dwells in every man. (Job 27:3)

 

God Cares Even When We Lack Faith

~ Mark 9:24

“And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.”  

Never accept the notion that God will not hear us without something in our hands or unless we have ‘crazy faith’. Our desire to believe and trust God is counted as faith! It is not complicated nor do we need any special offering or commands.

If we are willing to believe, God will do what He says. He will hear us!

~ Mark 1:40-41

And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.” 

 

Come To Him Without Fear

God will hear us no matter the circumstance. He is not waiting for a special seed or sacrifice. God is waiting for our call! He longs to hear our voice. Our Heavenly Father wants to love on us and provide for us.

Because He works with time for our sakes, answered prayer might seem delayed at times. But if we trust Him, the answer will come and so will His provision! Come, rich or poor, healthy or ill, saint, sinner or anything between!

~ Hebrews 4:16

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
