The object of God’s care

“Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you!” 1 Peter 5:7

Our cares must be cast upon our God, or they will prove a burden too heavy for us–they will depress, bewilder, and make us wretched!

WHO is it that cares for us?

It is He whom the angels obey, the seraphim adore, and all creation glorifies!
And It is the Lord, who is so great, that we have no adequate conception of His greatness​!
It is He who is so good, that it is impossible fully to set forth His goodness!
And It is He who is so glorious, that no sinner can see His face and live!
It is He who created all things with His Word!
It is He who governs all things by His wisdom!
Because He upholds all things by His power!
It is He whose resources are infinite!
And It is He whose compassion is exquisite!
It is He whose patience is without limit!


But though He is so exalted, so happy, and so unspeakably great–He cares for you!

He cares for you, as base as you are. The object of God's care
Because He cares for you, as sinful as you are.
He cares for you, as depressed and discouraged as you are.

Therefore HE cares for YOU!

May I pass through the present world under the impression, “I am the object of God’s tender, perfect and ceaseless care!

“Cast your cares on the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.” Psalm 55:22
