Have you ever felt as though no one love you… no one cared about you? David must have been in the depths of despair when he wrote: “No one cares for my soul”. While earthly friends may sometimes fail to care as they should. We can be sure that someone does care about us. “who cares” you ask. Notice carefully that:
- ANGELS CARE: the scriptures demonstrate that angelic beings are concerned with our welfare. Jesus said. “there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repents …..” (Luke 15 : 10). From 1Peter 1:12 observe that angels are concerned with the salvation of mankind. Angels care
- JESUS CARES: A well-known hymn asks. “Does Jesus care?” The refrain answers. “o yes. He cares: I know he cares…..” Jesus. The loving shepherd. Laid down his life because he cared for his sheep (John 10:13, 14). Greater love hath no man than this, than a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13). Truly. Jesus is one who cares for us.
- OUR HEAVENLY FATHER CARES: The giving of his only begotten son shows the extent of God’s great love (John 3:16). Indeed he is “the father of mercies and God of all comfort” ( 2 Corinthians 1:3). Paul said that “God commendeth his love toward us. In that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
When you are depressed. Lonely and feeling as though no one cares, do as David ( “No one cares for my soul” Psalms 142:4). did, turn to God in prayer. He prayed saying: “I cried out to you. O lord: I said. You are my refuge …” (Psalms 142:25). Remember that there are those who care!
