God Cares About You

Now with this in mind consider Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT). God said, “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” This is God telling us He cares about us and what is happening in our lives. Another reason why it is hard for people to believe God cares about them is because they wrongly attribute the bad things that happen to them as coming from God. When we do that, not only do we believe a lie but we play right into the hands of the devil. Jesus told us in John 10:10 (NLT) The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. Notice Jesus said His purpose in coming was to give you a rich and satisfying life. Why? Because God cares about you. When we don’t know and believe this, we will live a life far below what God intended for us to have. Jesus clearly tells us Satan’s work is to kill; Christ’s work is to give life. Bad things come from Satan and good things come from God. Satan is bad; God is good and cares about you! This is a fundamental truth for all of our lives if we are going to grow in our relationship with God and learn to trust Him.
