He Cares For You

Some Christians attest that God cares so much for us He would never want any heartache to touch us. 

I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Some Christians attest that God cares so much for us He would never want any heartache to touch us. But is this so? While no one is saying God enjoys watching us struggle, God's Word is pretty clear: He has absolutely no qualms about allowing suffering to wound us. But it doesn’t mean He no longer cares. God cared for Timothy, but He allowed him to struggle with frequent illness. God cared for James, but it was Herod who killed James by the sword because of his testimony. And God cares for you, and He cares deeply. But that doesn’t mean He will keep you from suffering; no, Gods care for you goes far deeper than your comfort. The Lord cares most about the state of your soul. He will let suffering wound you all right if, indeed, it means you will be made more like Christ. So today, grab hold of that truth and hang on, no matter what.
