FAITH CAPSULE: God is keeping all consistently despite man’s inconsistency.
Continually, the care of God does not expire.
God is mindful of us to care more than we understand or know.
The care of God is His love as He declares, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:17)
The care of God is His gift for all that is conscious to accept and unwrap the gift of God. Jesus refers to Himself as the gift of God saying, “…If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” (John 4:10)
Consciously, do you care for God’s gift of love for you?
God cares with His salvation plan for all. Do you understand how much He cares for you as His child? David’s curiosity questioned in Psalm 8:4-6, “What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet…” The curiosity of David revealed the truthfulness of God’s care for all His creation.
God’s mindful for all man is the evidence that God is near to all.
Under heaven, no one can hide from God, regardless of how one works away from God (word of God), God remains near but not far from all.
Testimony of Deuteronomy 4:7 is the evidence that God is near, “For what great nation is there that has God so near to it, as the Lord our God is to us, for whatever reason we may call upon Him?” Jeremiah 23:23 confirms that God is near, “Am I a God near at hand,” says the Lord, “And not a God afar off?”
When God is near the presence of God is evident. However, sin will always keep a man from God that is near. Sin, not obeying God for correction to trust God will keep the sinner from God’s presence. Zephaniah 3:2 buttressed that sin will keep sinning man from His presence. It is written, “She has not obeyed His voice, she has not received correction; She has not trusted in the Lord, She has not drawn near to her God.” One outside of God’s presence because of sin does not keep one to be unreachable from God’s near. Is it your world around you that is the self-deception or self-denial that is keeping you from being conscious of God’s care for you?
God is mindful of all man. God is near to us and cares for all that care to live life by His word.
Living in the consciousness of God’s care is the evidence of faith; the expression of expectation for God’s divine protection at all time.
Be conscious of God’s care.
Prayer for today: Ask God for yourself to continually have the mind for Him.
