God Does Care

In yesterday's devotional, I told you about the three levels of faith Jesus talks about.  The first of these levels is found in Mark 4:37-40,

And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling.  But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow.  And they awoke Him and said to Him, "Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?"  Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!"  And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.  But He said to them, "Why are you so fearful?  How is it that you have no faith?"

The first level of faith that Jesus speaks about is no faith.  No faith believes God does not care.  It is typified by the disciples who woke Jesus in the midst of the storm and said, "Lord, don't You care that we're perishing?"

Perhaps you are in a storm today; and, to you, it seems like God is asleep and that He doesn't even care.  That He is aloof, disinterested, and disconnected from you.  That you are going through hell and He doesn't care.

Do not believe that lie.  If you buy into the lie that God does not care, it robs you of faith.  And you cannot get any lower than that. 

Do not believe the lie that God is detached and unconcerned.  Don't think, "If God cares about me, why would this have happened?  Why am I going through this storm?  Why is this happening in my life?  God doesn't care about me.  He doesn't even know my name."

My friend, God does care.  He is not going to let you perish.  He is interested in even the smallest details of your life.

1 Peter 5:7 says, He cares for you
