Does God Care?

The steps of a man are established by the LORD, And He delights in his way. Psalm 37:23

You are here for a purpose. if you are a believer, God wants you where you are right now for His purpose. Things may no be going the way you would like them to go but you must trust God and scripture took it a little further: We are told to delight and accept our position. You and I have to delight/enjoy our position. We may not understand why we are here and for how long God is going to keeps us here but we must still trust that when the time is right, He will reveal the plan. As a matter of fact, it does not even have to make sense why we are here. Faith in God is exactly what must keep us in position. Rest become easy once we understand that we belong to God and that our steps are ordered. We no longer murmur and complain about our situations. We know that all things work together for our good.

So to have our steps ordered by the Lord means that the Lord is the one directing us, guiding us and leading us. But in order for the Lord to direct our steps, there are some things we ought to do. First of all, we must have faith. The Bible says in Romans 1:17 "the just shall live by faith." and Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.” Also,I Thessalonians 5:17 says "men should always pray and not faint." Perhaps, one of the most important reasons to pray is the fact that God says it.In Jeremiah 33:3, the LORD says, "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know."

Friends, if you are a believer and find yourself in a place of great challenges, don't you worry. God is with you. He will guide you safely out of the wilderness. Trust Him and you will see His glory. He loves you. He cares.

Praise the Lord!
