The Wonderful Love of God!---Part 2
Don't magnify your problems, do not give way to unbelief and discouragement. Remember that God loves you, remember the care, the love and the power he has manifested in times past. He is still the same!
"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." 1 Peter 5:7.
"Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him." Psalm 103:13.
"I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee." Hebrews 13:5.
"But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold." Job 23:10.
"I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you." John 14:18.
"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28.
"As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you." Isaiah 66:13.
It is interesting to note that when mothers and fathers comfort their children, they attempt to turn their thoughts from the immediate present to the future:
"Never mind, it will SOON be better." "Up again, sonny. That's the way we learn to walk. Soon you'll be a big boy and won't fall down any more." "Of course,
it will hurt to pull your tooth, but only a little while, and then it won't ache any more." That's the way they talk. And that's the way God talks to us:
"weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning." Psalm 30:5.
We are but children in God's sight---children of a day, children of an hour. We are so wrapped up in the immediate present that we are prone to forget there is
"a morning,"---that there is a tomorrow with God, and that He is guiding, fitting, preparing us for tomorrow, not for today. There is a future for God's children.
A haven to win. Something to look forward, beyond the struggles of this life. All of it is wrapped up in God's love and in Jesus' sacrifice for us.
Look beyond your troubles, and hope in God!
