How do I know God really cares about me?

Read: 2 Peter 1:3-8, Philippians 2:12-16, 1 Corinthians 3:7-9

It is amazing to consider how big God is. He created the universe, set our whole world into motion, and orchestrated the perfect plan to redeem mankind. God is big and unimaginably powerful.

But sometimes, it’s difficult to believe that God — being so big and powerful — would choose to love us individually. Doesn’t it seem like someone so tied up with creating the world and saving humanity would have a hard time relating to you and me?

Thankfully, God is not limited like us. He is an all-powerful creator and a loving Father. He cares about the big and the small aspects of our lives, and He loves each and every one of us on a deep and personal level — so much that He invites us to be a part of His work on earth (Philippians 2:13). 

Instead of leaving us to our own devices, God allows us to work alongside Him, enabling us to share His great promises with others (2 Peter 1:4). Every promise we read about in the Bible requires some participation on our part. Doing our part might mean having the faith to believe and pray. And often, doing our part will require us to live differently. 

This is going to take faith — faith that as we act in accordance with what God says, He will do what He promises to do. As we act in faith and follow where God leads, we become “[His] fellow workers” (1 Corinthians 3:9), carrying out His plan for our lives and watching Him do incredible things in others.

Reflect:

  • Do you consider God a close, personal Father or a distant creator? Why?
  • Why do you think it matters that God invites us to work alongside Him to share the Gospel?
  • What’s one way that participating in God’s work has taught you to trust in His promises?
