From the beginning God has cared for us. Even in creation He prepared the world so that man could survive and thrive.

When man faced loneliness because there was "not found a help meet for him" (Gen. 2:20), God formed woman and brought her to man. Sadly man’s seemingly perfect world did not last long. It was man who strayed from God, by disobeying God.

At that point in time God could have justly destroyed man, but instead of destroying, God made a way that man could be justified once again. He determined to bring Christ into the world so that a sacrifice that would cleanse the souls of men could be offered.

The love of God goes beyond man’s understanding. "In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins" (1 John 4:9, 10).

The Apostle Paul wrote, "Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God" (2 Cor. 1:2 - 4).

In a world where trouble waits around every corner it is good to know that Christians do not have to face trouble alone, we have God.

The psalmist referred to God as a father who has pity on his children. "Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him" (Psalm 103:13).

God is concerned about us. He knows our fears; he knows when our heart is aching. We need to always remember God cares about us. Peter wrote, "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you" (1 Peter 5:7).

In order to be able to have the faith to trust God with our cares we must keep our faith strong.
