Are There Limits To God's Care?

When life goes badly we ask ourselves, "Does God care for us? Did his care get worn out? Have we become unworthy of his care?"

"As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people both now and forevermore." Psalm 125:2, NIV.

God's care surrounds us like a mountain range. The mountains that surround Jerusalem have been a formidable defense for thousands of years. Few armies have been able to navigate and cross their barrier.   From Jerusalem you can see the mountains on each side; they never move they are always there, just like God's love.

The Lord goes ahead of us and brings up the rear; he is beside us with protection on every side, there is no flank that is not covered by his care and protection. No enemy can surprise us from a hidden place beyond the corner of our eye for the Lord is there. He is behind us, nothing can sneak up and find an unguarded rear.

He preceded us in time so he knows what we will face long before we do- and since he is here ahead of us we can be confident he has prepared the way for us to go through it. God cares for us already we do not need to buy it, earn it or merit it. He already loves us, it is clearly seen when he gave his son for us while we were far from righteous.

This is a double word it is not just forever it is forevermore. It is like forever and beyond, or forever without boundaries. It is a forever that we can't do anything about; we can't break it or shorten it, or in any way change our relationship to it. It is like forever and everything more going on past all measure.

There are some people that God calls his people, this also suggests that there are some that God does not call his people. He is inviting people to leave the ways of the world and come to him.* God often calls people to come to him. We are far from God because of our sins, but God has given his son to pay for our sin's judgment so we can have a relationship with him as a gift which he gives to those who believe and receive the gift of life.

God's love and care are without boundaries, it can't diminish or fade, but we can reject it and fail to experience it. God loves you if you have not yet received his gift of eternal life and want to know more follow this link: Click Here.
