God cares about you

“I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”” - John 10:28-30

Do you ever feel like no one cares?
Do you ever feel unloved?

Don't be fooled by your feelings.

The God that created all things loves and cares for you.

The truth is God cares about you. God loves you. God wants to spend all of eternity with you. Each moment of every day for ever and ever God loves and cares about you. He shows his love in that he does for us what we can not do for ourselves. He shows his love by doing what only he can do by coming to earth as Jesus and dying on the cross so that we could live eternally with him. He wants us to place our lives in his hands. He desires that we would just rest in the palm of his hands and trust him with our lives. He cares. He wants what is best for us. He loves us. When in his hands no one can snatch us out of his hands he will protect us.

However, God's hands are not clenched fists holding us hostage unwillingly. Because he loves us and cares for us, the choice is our to rest safe and secure in his hands or to walk outside of his loving embrace. No one can snatch us from him. He will protect us from that ever happening when we place our lives in his hands but his arms and hands are always open so that we can know his love and care is real and we can choose it or reject it.

It does not make since to reject it, but we can and some do.

But, if you want to know that you are loved and cared for and that each and every moment of all eternity God wants nothing more than to love you and for you to be able to love him in return than rest in the palm of God's hand and the truth of God's promise that he will give you eternal life and you will not perish. Rest in knowing that he and he alone is capable if this and that he will not let anyone snatch you away from him. He loves you. He cares. He desires only the best for you.

Love today.

In Christ's love and mine,
Doug
