At the moment I feel like God does not care about me. I know this is not true, but please could you give me some verses from the Bible to help me?
There are times in my life when I feel that God does not care about me. I have found that when I start feeling like this, I have forgotten one important thing. I am not thanking Him for what He has done in my life. Let me share one verse that really speaks to me.
. . . let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name. (NASB) Hebrews 13:15
When I get discouraged and feel that God has forgotten me or does not care about me, I have found it helpful to look back over my life and remember all the things He has done for me or the things He has given me. Here are some verses that tell us what He has done for us.
. . . He did good and gave you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness. (NASB) Acts 14:17
They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain. (NASB) Psalm 127:1
. . . casting all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you. (NASB) 1 Peter 5:7
These are just a few verses that remind us that He is taking care of us all the time. He does not need to do these things, yet He does. He supplies us with food. He protects us and watches over us. He wants us to cast our care on Him. Sometimes when events “do not go right” for us, it is because we are not seeking Him first.
But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you. “Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” (NASB) Matthew 6:33-34
He wants our attention first.
When I get discouraged, I find that I need to stop and remember what He has done for me. I need to check myself out. Am I seeking Him first? I then start thanking Him for what He has done in my life and then ask Him for help.
. . . in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (NASB)
1 Thessalonians 5:18
I find my real problem is that I am usually not very thankful for what He has already done for me. I have also forgetten one major blessing that He gave me 2,000 years ago.
I asked Jesus how much much He loved me. So He stretched out His arms and said, “This much” – and died!
