I don’t know all the trials and tribulations you may be experiencing right now. Perhaps your life is trouble free at this moment. If so, praise God for that. But, if you’re like most people, one of three things is true: You have just come through a major problem; you are currently in the midst of a major problem; or you’re getting ready to enter a major problem. The reality is: the only people who don’t have problems are in the cemetery.
The solution to the problem is to have an ever-loving, never-leaving faithful friend who stands by you and supports you in the midst of your problems.
The good news is that Jesus is that friend. Nobody understands you like Jesus, and nobody loves you like Jesus. He is a faithful and loyal friend. That’s why he said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).
The song says: “Does Jesus care when my heart is pained too deeply for mirth and song; as the burdens press, and the cares distress, and the way grows weary and long?” And the chorus answers: “Oh yes, he cares. I know he cares. His heart is touched with my grief. When the days are weary, the long nights dreary, I know my Savior cares.”
When you’re in the midst of a great problem, remember what the apostle Peter said about Jesus: “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7).
