Many people have asked themselves this question at some point in their lives, especially during times of hardship and suffering. It can be challenging to believe that God cares for us when we feel alone and helpless. However, the Bible assures us that God is a loving and compassionate God who cares for His children.

Does God Care About Me

Sometimes it’s hard to go through pain and suffering. The pain can cause us to feel alone and wonder if God even cares about us. Here are a few things to remember when you wonder if God cares about you:

  1. God’s love is unconditional: The Bible tells us that God’s love is not based on our performance or actions. God loves us simply because we are His children.
  2. God’s care is personal: The Bible also assures us that God cares for each of us individually. In Matthew 6:26, Jesus says, “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”
  3. God understands our pain: When we suffer, it can be easy to feel like no one understands what we’re going through. However, the Bible tells us that Jesus experienced pain and suffering just like we do. He is able to empathize with us and comfort us in our time of need.
  4. Trusting God brings hope: When we put our trust in God, we can find hope even in the midst of difficult circumstances. Romans 15:13 says, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

God’s Love and Care for You

Seeking God is our first step to creating order in our lives. Life can feel chaotic and messy when we do not seek the Father’s heart first, with our whole heart.

God created us last to show us all the things He created for us. He didn’t want us to have nothing. We were His prize, made in His image.

A few things I have learned when thinking, “Does God care about me?”

  • I have learned that who I am isn’t who I will always be. Knowing God and the transformation that is available to me through Jesus changed how I viewed the narrative of my life and myself.
  • We started our lives from a place of rest. Now we get to rest because of the finished work on the cross.
  • God formed you, your mother carried you, and your parents loved you. All because “In the beginning, God.”
  • Order keeps things in place to produce what is needed. Our God is a God of order. It’s not to chain us up or to keep us in bondage. There is intention and purpose within His order of things.

The boundaries set before us are for our freedom and protection. Boundaries are not to keep us feeling confined or locked up.

Your worth can only stem from the Father because there was no one else but Him to give you your worth.

The root of where our worth and love come from is God. The more we can understand that our roots are deeper than any ancestry tree can show, the less we will become formed by the world, its version of love, and the words spoken.

Discovering the Depth of God’s Love for You

As a Christian, it’s common to struggle with feelings of insignificance or doubt that God cares about us individually. We may feel like our problems are too small or insignificant for God to notice, or that He is too busy to care. However, the Bible assures us that God loves and cares for each of us deeply.

Psalm 139:13-14 says, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” This passage emphasizes the uniqueness and value of each individual, highlighting the fact that God intentionally created us and cares about every aspect of our being.

Another important passage is Matthew 10:29-31, which states, “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” This passage reminds us that God’s care extends even to the smallest details of our lives, and that we are of great value to Him.

As Christians, it’s important to remember that God’s love and care for us are not dependent on our circumstances or our feelings. We can trust in His unchanging nature and rest in the assurance of His love for us.

Two questions you can ask yourself to begin to deepen your relationship with God and begin to believe God cares for you.

  1. Do you find the Word not being enough for you to believe that God cares about the details of your life and you as a person?

2. Why do you find yourself questioning if God cares?

As Christians, we can rest in the assurance that God loves and cares for us deeply, even in the midst of our doubts and struggles.

How to Trust in God’s Love for You When You Feel Like God Doesn’t Care

Trusting in God’s love can be difficult, especially when we’re faced with trials or difficult circumstances. However, as Christians, we’re called to trust in God’s love and rely on Him in all things.

  1. Seek God’s Word: One of the best ways to build trust in God’s love is to spend time in His Word. Reading the Bible regularly can help you gain a deeper understanding of God’s character and His love for you. As you read, take note of the promises God has made to His people, and remind yourself of those promises when you’re struggling.
  2. Pray: Prayer is another important way to cultivate trust in God’s love. Take time each day to pray and talk to God about your struggles and fears. Ask Him to reveal His love to you in a new way and to help you trust in Him more fully.
  3. Reflect on God’s Faithfulness: Looking back on past experiences where God has been faithful can help build trust in His love for you. Take some time to reflect on times when God has provided for you, protected you, or answered your prayers. Write them down if it helps you remember.
  4. Surrender Control: Often, our lack of trust in God’s love is rooted in a desire to control our own lives. But the truth is, we can’t control everything. Surrendering control to God and trusting in His plan can help build trust in His love. Remember that He has a purpose and plan for your life, and that He loves you deeply.
