Q:

I don't think God really cares what happens to us. The universe is so huge and we're so small, so why should He worry about us? He's too big to be interested in what happens to us, and we ought to be honest enough to admit we're on our own.


A:

If God were like us — limited, and able to concentrate on only a few things at a time — then you might be right; He probably wouldn’t care about us. After all, you and I can barely keep track of what’s happening in our own lives, let alone what’s happening to everyone else.

But God isn’t like this! We are limited — but He is not. We can’t keep track of everything that’s happening — but He can. You say God is “too big” to care about us, but that’s the point: He is so great that He knows about even the smallest details of our lives. The Bible says, “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account” (Hebrews 4:13).

This is why you can trust Him and turn to Him with every concern you have. We are not alone, nor are we left to make our own way blindly through life (although many people still do). God made us and He loves us and cares about every detail of our lives — and the proof is that He sent His Son, Jesus, into the world to offer us eternal life.

Perhaps you like to think God doesn’t care about us, because it leaves you free to live any way you want to. But that’s a dead-end road. Instead, face honestly your need of God, and turn to Christ in faith and trust.

Find peace with God

    I have been looking for a job for many years but only hitting the dead ends! I trusted God and believed that he cared about every detail of my life but after all these years of searching I have come to this conclusion that he does not care about all details! He has made me be so ashamed of my faith to him. People know about my beliefs and my trust toward him and they also know that I have been praying for my financial problems!

      How blessed to know his chosen ones will go through fire to be proved pure in our faith in God.
      1Peter 1:7-9
      7. Pure gold put in the fire comes out of it proved pure; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out proved genuine. When Jesus wraps this all up, it’s your faith, not your gold, that God will have on display as evidence of his victory. 
      8 You never saw him, yet you love him. You still don’t see him, yet you trust him – with laughter and singing. 
      9 Because you kept on believing, you’ll get what you’re looking forward to: total salvation.
