God is not the author of confusion but of peace. 1 Corinthians 14:33

Who of us has not asked in times of affliction and difficulty - does God care for me? The Psalmist said, "Refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul" (Ps.142:4). Martha over concerned with her workaday duties said to Jesus, "Lord, do You not care?" How many faithful, loving mothers, overwhlemed by the burdens of motherhood have cried anxiously, "Lord, do You care?"

The question is forever answered in those reassuring words of Peter: "He cares for you" (1Peter 5:7). This is the word of God. Even if the world passes away it will not change.

You can be confident God cares for you. If he didn't, would He have sent Christ into the world to die for you? Of course not! That is why you can always turn to Him for the strength and encouragement you need.

Yes, life can be overwhelming at times. But when it is, remember this: God knows what you are facing, and "He cares for you."
