God cares for you
Key verse: 1 Peter 5:7 - KJV
7. Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you
1 Kings 19:10-19
The most caring person ever is the Lord Most-High. He cares so much that He would give His angels charge concerning His beloved to hold him up in their hands so that he does not dash his foot against stones. From infancy, by the knowledge of this scripture, any time we dashed foot against stone whether mildly or otherwise, we stopped the journey to check our relationship with God and to confer with Him before proceeding. God is that thorough in His care for those that love Him. Therefore, it is baffling when the beloved of God start to jelly or panic at the threat of any mere mortal. If God be for us, who can be against us? When the enemies gather with a view to destroying the beloved of God, the Lord sees them before they put plans together and He is always ahead of the enemy. While Herod was still contemplating how to annihilate the new born King, the Lord sent an angel to His earthly parents to take Him to Egypt to hide. He has the antidote, always.
When Elijah engaged the prophets of Baal on mount Carmel and defeated them, it was because God cared for him and backed him up. However, when Jezebel arose thereafter and threatened his life, he forgot the One who cared so much for him against a larger number of principalities and powers. He took to his heels. Yet, the One who cared for him located him and enquired from him what the matter was. When the battle appears fierce to us, it is nothing before the Lord. Even if we do not remember to call on the Lord in the moment of danger, the One who cares for us comes through to look after us. When God came through for Elijah, his confidence was restored. God is set to restore your confidence today if you are one of His beloved ones. No devil will cause you to fear or run about again in Jesus name. as God cared for Elijah, the prophet also trusted the voice of God. If God must continue to care for us, then we must learn to trust His voice and His Word. To do otherwise is to call Him a liar and He detests that.
Beloved, stop being afraid of those who can only kill the body but cannot kill the soul. The One to fear is that who can kill both body and soul. And since you are on His side and He is so caring, rest assured that nothing can by any means hurt you. Hasn’t He said we should declare to the righteous that it shall be well with him? Cheer up friend.
Pray: Father, I rest on you completely. Please let me not be ashamed and don’t let my enemies triumph over me in Jesus name.
