Those of us who have lost a loved one to disease or have love ones who are fighting an illness, or who dread its possible return, may sometimes feel as though we're about to be overhelmed with fear or that God has abandoned us or doesn't care about our battles. I am glad to remind you today, that is not the case. He does care. God's love for us is not wishful thinking. It is not a mirage in the desert of life on earth. He really does love us.
The Book of Psalms, chapter 34, verse 18, tell us, "The lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit."
Who better know than our father in heaven knows the anguish of losing a loved one, for his own Son died at Calvary. Yes God does know. He understands.
The ultimate proof of God's love was sending Jesus to die on the cross for us,taking the pusnishment our sins deserve, then rising form grave three days later. As 1 John 4:9 tell us, "In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world(to day in place of sinners), so that we might live through him"And John 3:36 says "Whoever believes n the Son has eternal life" How wonderful it is to know that all who trust him fully find eternal life through him: "For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved" Romans 10:13"
If you don't have the assurance of God's provision for your deepest needs, I invite you to place your absolute trust in Jesus Christ today. The Bible says that those who believe him become children of God" (Jhon 1:12). And as a child of God, you are invited to cast " all your anxieties on himn, because he cares for you" (1 Peter 5:7)
