God Knows and God Cares

Jeremiah 29:10-14

Introduction

- Wed night talked briefly there are three different people in this world today

-- Just got out of a struggle

-- Are going through a struggle

-- Are headed for a struggle that they aren’t aware of

- Even with all that, God is not caught off guard by your circumstances

- Today we will amplify this statement and see if we cannot be strengthened by it

- Word of God, Speak

- Stand and read Jeremiah 29:10-14

Point 1 – God Knows

- Your thoughts matter to God; because of His love for us; He gives us Jesus

-- Emphasis on give (we did not earn it, we did not achieve it, He was given to us)

- Divinely, everything that you are He is aware of … nothing is missed by Him

- He knows your flaws, your uncertainties, and your wants …

- He never said He was mad

- He never said that He hated you

- He never said He was disappointed in you

- But what He did say is that He loves you unconditionally no matter what

- APP: If you will call upon Him and ask Him to help you

- Some of us are dealing with struggle today; some of us need to be comforted

- The God of the Bible who reveals Himself through the scriptures … cares

- How do I know? Go to: Psalm 139:1-4 (how much He knows us - expound)

- John 3:16 has an emphasis in this verse (For God so loved (cared))

- TRANS: Not only does God know us, but He cares for us in everything we do

Point 2 – God Cares

- Jeremiah 29:12 “THEN” you will call – then He will listen

- It requires an action on our part to be reconciled to Him; to come to Him

- But when we take that action we have assurance that He listens and cares

- 1 Peter 5:7 says “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you”

- Everything that we have is given by God, so that we can give back to Him

- Because of the cross we have a line of communication directly to Him

- Because of the cross we have the ability to talk to the creator of this world

- Because of the cross we can join together and be strengthened in common bond

- However, if you haven’t come to the cross for forgiveness and repentance of your sin then this comfort is eluding you.

- APP: God still cares, but the cross is the bridge to communicate with Him.

- The cross is how God reconciled us to Him, and we must follow it in everything

- Are we following church? God is listening for us to come to Him (its obedience)

- First though, we must take that step and avoid the genie in a lamp syndrome

- God’s desire, His very care, is for our small lives here on a very big Earth

-- James 4:14 says, “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.”

-- Life has never been about you and me; we are tiny and small on this planet

- Yes, He cares; yes, he loves; yes, He desires – but we have to want too as well

-TRANS: If God is caring and drawing, then what is our response?

Point 3 – Our Response

- Read Jeremiah 29:13

- Are you seeking right now? Does your life desire to follow after Him?
