Who Cares?

I Peter 5:7

There are times when we feel overwhelmed and defeated by the circumstances of life. The children are arguing in the next room, the light bill was late and the meter-man is at the door, the washing machine quit spinning with a load of wet (very wet) blue jeans in it, the supper will be late because I didn’t get to the store for the groceries I needed. This is one of those moments when we want to throw up our hands and exclaim loudly, “who cares?” What is needed here is a “Calgon, Take Me Away” escape. (Do you remember that commercial?)

Actually, the Calgon moment is not a real bad idea. Only we need to substitute God’s Name there. Perhaps we could say, “Abba, Father, Take Me Away”! That is a call for help that is built on a long-term, lasting relationship. The calls must be placed at the front of the entire crisis’s…not at the ends.

Beloved, the Father has given you His personal 911 number. It is never busy. It works 24/7. A computer never answers and you don’t have to push any other buttons. He establishes this personal relationship with you when you make yourself available. It is up to us to spend that quiet time with Him. Let Him give us the peace that passes all understanding in spite of the meter-man, the washing machines, supper or the children. The peace is already in place before the moments of crisis.

When the need is there and we cry aloud, “who cares”, our Father quietly says, “I do. What is it you are anxious about today, child? Give it to me. I care!”

“Father, help me to relax in your loving arms and feel the peace that you give me. Help me when I feel unloved and overwhelmed to know that I am your precious child. Thank you, for loving me. Amen”

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
