God Knows and Cares as No One Else

Our Father in heaven knows our frame and remembers that we are dust. He knew our inborn treachery, and for His own sake engaged to save us (Isaiah 48:8–11). His only begotten Son, when He walked among us, felt our pains in their naked intensity of anguish. His knowledge of our afflictions and adversities is more than theoretic; it is personal, warm, and compassionate. Whatever may befall us, God knows and cares as no one else can.


He doth give His joy to all;

He becomes an infant small;

He becomes a man of woe;

He doth feel the sorrow too.


Think not thou canst sigh a sigh

And thy Maker is not by;

Think not thou canst weep a tear

And thy Maker is not near.


O! He gives to us His joy

That our griefs He may destroy;

Till our grief is fled and gone

He doth sit by us and moan.

     William Blake

Verse

For my own name's sake I delay my wrath; / for the sake of my praise I hold it back from you, / so as not to cut you off. Isaiah 48:9

Thought

His knowledge of our afflictions and adversities is more than theoretic; it is personal, warm, and compassionate.

Prayer

Thank You, Father, that You know and care for us as no one else can.
