God Cares

Richard Roberts

There is no problem too big or too small for God. Sometimes we think God is interested only in helping us with “important” problems. But He loves us and wants to help us with any trial or trouble that weighs on us, no matter what it may be.

I remember one time when a rancher called the Abundant Life Prayer Group during our television program The Place for Miracles because his prize bull had gotten caught in barbed wire. The bull was seriously injured, and the rancher thought it might die. He wanted me to pray for the bull’s healing.

Now someone might say, “What do you think you’re doing, wasting precious airtime praying for a bull?” But that prize bull was important to the rancher, so it was important to God. I prayed, and do you know what? God healed the bull!

God is interested in things like that. If something is bothering you, it’s bothering Him. He cares about what you care about. First Peter 5:7 NLT says it like this: Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about what happens to you. The Amplified Bible says, Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully. In that same verse, the Phillips translation says that you are His personal concern.

You can ask God for help with anything that’s troubling you today because He cares!
