Who Cares About God
Scripture: Psalms 102:1-2
102:1 The prayer of an oppressed man, as he grows faint and pours out his lament before the Lord. O Lord, hear my prayer!Pay attention to my cry for help! 2 Do not ignore me in my time of trouble! Listen to me! When I call out to you, quickly answer me!
Too often many of us become concerned, if not burdened, with the cares and difficulties of life. Often, however, it is needless concerns that worry us. Nevertheless, left to themselves such concerns and cares can foster a feeling of discouragement or despondency and in some extreme cases even a disdain for life. As Shakespeare wrote,
Care keeps his watch in every old man’s eye,
And where care lodges, sleep will never lie
The Old Testament contains many examples of God’s concern and care for his people both as a nation and as individuals. It is a theme that occurs frequently. God’s careful creation of the world and mankind also comes to mind as well as his preservation of mankind through the flood in Noah’s time. Not to be forgotten is the Lord’s care in bringing Abram from Ur of the Chaldees to a land of God’s perpetual concern (Gen. 12:1-3). Among the many examples of God’s careful watch over Abraham in accordance with his divine promises and Abraham’s faithfulness is his sparing of Abraham’s only son Isaac (Gen. 23:13-14). The Lord was especially involved in many events in Isaac’s life as well as that of his son Jacob and in turn, the life of Joseph, especially in Joseph’s rise to power in Egypt.
But who cares about God, we go to church and claim to be his children but we don't worship with excitement and have reverence for God. People claim to love God and worship God, but have you eve ask yourself why do I love God. Is it just because of what he does or gives to you?
You may get asked as a Christian, why should I care about God. He doesn't need anything, he has all he needs and owns it all any way. Where are the people of integrity, honor and respect for God and his word.
