Our Caring God

Thorough the Lord’s
mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new
every morning; great is Your faithfulness
(Lamentations 3:22-23).
The Father is absolutely committed to our care. He calls
Himself the Shepherd, Jehovah Raah in Psalm 23:1. We are His sheep. He has
loved us enough to make an eternal covenant with Abraham and include us in it!
His covenant care for us is guaranteed by God’s own integrity.
 
One of His covenant care names is Jehovah-Jireh (found in
Genesis 22:14) which means the Lord our provider. God provided the lamb of
sacrifice in the place of Abraham’s son Isaac as Abraham walked up the mountain
in obedience to God’s request of Abraham to give Him his only son. God’s
provides what He requests from us.
    
God’s nature is wrapped up in His name El-Shaddai (found
in Genesis 17:1; 28:1-4; Psalm 91:1), the giver and sustainer of life. This
term has wrapped in it the idea of a mother who is the all sustaining force in
a newborn baby’s life. She provides all the nourishment and care for that
little child. The child is always safe and secure in the love of the mother.
That’s how our Father God is to us!
 
The Father has revealed Himself to us as El-Elyon (found
in Genesis 14: 18-23; Daniel 5:18; Psalm 83;18), the possessor of heaven and
earth. It means that He is the Most High God! When things look bad and the
enemy seems to be winning, don’t forget that our never changing God is
El-Elyon, the MOST HIGH! We always win. Winning is our destiny!
  
The Father has revealed Himself as El-Roi, the One who
sees. This is found in Genesis 16: 13-14. God saw Hagar, Abraham’s handmaid’s
needs, and met her needs as she was alone in the desert after being kicked out
of Abraham’s house. The Father sees everything about us and knows intimately
every detail of our lives; the good, the bad, and the ugly. He know why we do
what we do, and know how to minister to us in minute detail. He is El-Roi, the
one who sees. Pour out your heart to Him and expect Him to help you. He cares!
The Father is Our Shepherd, our Provider, our Life
Sustainer, the MOST HIGH, and He is the One who sees and knows all about us.
Pour your heart out to Him today, and expect Him to meet you in today’s life
details! I’ll continue this tomorrow.
