God Cares for Me

"For He knoweth our frame; He remembereth that we are dust." (Psalm 103:14)

God cares about me even though I am nothing but dust.

Dust. It's the stuff that accumulates under your bed or on your dresser. It's on top of the refrigerator or other places that never seem to get cleaned. It's the stuff your mom asks you to wipe off of the furniture around the house. Most people don't like dust. It's just annoying. Dust is certainly something you wouldn't try to collect and take care of. You would not love or protect or even talk to dust. Most people would think you were strange if you did any of those things. After all, it's just dust, it's not important; it's not worth anything.

But do you know that God describes human beings as dust? Psalms 103:14 says, "For He knoweth our frame; He remembereth that we are dust." The phrase "He knoweth our frame," means that God knows what we are made of. And He should know what we are made of because He created us. Genesis 2:7 says God created man from "the dust of the ground." You are nothing more important or significant than dust.

But even though you are dust and seemingly unimportant, God does love you, and care for you, and protect you. He does want to talk to you through His Word, and He also wants you to talk to Him through prayer. We should thank God that He cares so much about us. The whole point of Psalm 103 is that we should bless God for everything He has done for us such as forgiving and forgetting our sins, showing us mercy, healing us from sickness, and giving us strength. It's great that we have a God that cares about us even though we are dust and don't deserve it!

My Response:
» Do I thank God for caring about me?
» Do I remember that I'm nothing but dust and don't deserve God's love, or do I get proud and think more of myself more than I should?

Question & Answer

QDid Jesus rise from the dead?

A  Yes, and that truth is the heart of the Gospel message. 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 – "For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures."

 

BIG Christian Word

Regeneration - (ree-gen-er-a-shun)

Regeneration is a work of God which gives us a new spiritual life. Another term could be "being born again." God has given man a choice to choose a spiritual life. (John 12:13) "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God."
