"I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth " Exodus: 34:10 (KJV)
You are special to God

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you – IPeter 5:7

The world is rife with the oppressed, poor, diseased and humiliated people. The fatherless and the widow yearns for love. Poor cry out for justice, there is no one to plead their case. The unrecognized has none to recommend for their promotion or hike in salary. The oppressed wait night and day for liberation. The diseased cry out in agony for the deliverance from pain. Are you one among them? Whatever may be your problem, there is someone who cares for you, in whose eyes you are special. That someone is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

He cares for you

God created Adam in His own image. He made him ruler over all that He created. Yet Adam sinned against God and hid himself from the sight of God. Inspite of it God came in search of him and called out, "Where are you Adam?" Today the Lord is searching for you too. You may be a sinner yet God loves you. You may be a person who is being oppressed by your own relatives or friends or someone who do not have enough strength to fight for your own case. Are you a person who have lost the job and do not know how to feed the children and wife who is dependent on you? Are you a diseased person who wails all night for the change in your life? There is a comforting verse in the Bible which reads as follows:

He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets prisoners free. The Lord gives sight to the blind. The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down, the Lord loves the righteous – Psalm 146 7-9.

Whichever group you may belong, the Lord says I care for you. You cast your burden on me. Trust me completely I shall take care of your problem.

He is compassionate on you

Many in this world do not know the meaning for compassion because they are born and brought up in a loveless environment. Mothers abandon the children in search of greener pastures like extramarital relationships, career, fashion and so on. The scripture says, "Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you" – Isaiah 49:15.

If you are a person abandoned by your parents the Lord says I have not forgotten you. You may be living with your parents who give you all the material comfort but no love. The Lord loves you too. He says, "I have loved you with an everlasting love. I have drawn you with loving kindness" – Jeremiah 31:3.

Are you doing God’s ministry but have none to respect your efforts? Are you being neglected by your own flock? The following verse is especially for you:

For the Lord will vindicate his people and have compassion on his servants – Psalms 135: 14.

He judges for you

Are you being judged unjustly by others? Are you being framed for the wrong doings which you did not commit? Are you being robbed off of the only piece of land you have or do you feel you cannot go to the court because you do not have enough money to plead your case. You have a God who takes up the case of the poor. The judges of this world may not give you the right judgement but the Lord shall put forth a fear in the heart of the men who try to plunder you and give back to you what belongs to you.

The Lord will take up the case of the poor and will plunder those who plunder them – Proverbs 22:23.

The Bible says, "The defender of the fatherless is strong. He will take up their case against you (the plunderer)" – Proverbs 23:11.

He fights for you

In I Samuel 7:8-17 we read that when Philistines came to attack the Israelites they were terrified and asked Samuel to cry unto God for them. Samuel sacrificed a lamb and cried unto God for the victory Israel. The Lord sent thunder against the philistines and them into such a panic that they were routed before the Israelites.

Sometimes you are also so disheartened that you do not have the strength to fight against your enemies. You may be shedding tears because you do not know what to do. Do not be dismayed. If God can do a miracle for Israel, He will do a miracle even for you. Not through the ways you expect but through the most unexpected ways.

Bible says, "The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still" – Exodus 14:14.

May the Lord bless you and comfort you.
