He Does Care

And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Matthew 9:35-36 King James Version

Frank Graeff, a Methodist pastor, wrote two hundred hymn texts but this is one of my favorite songs “Does Jesus Care”. These words have been an inspiration, an encouragement and a comfort to my heart for many years. “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.”

We read in the precious Word of God that we are to cast all of our cares upon Jesus. “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (1 Peter 5: 7). All too often, we try to carry our burdens alone and then we wonder why we get discouraged and depressed. We don’t have the strength or the power to fight satan by ourselves.

Jesus defeated satan when He died on the cross for our sins. Yes, the war was won on the cross but you and I will still have battles until we go home. However, our Saviour will always bring us through every one of our battles victoriously if we will only get out of the way and let Him fight our battles for us.

I know from personal experience that He does care. He has held me in His compassionate arms many times as He rocked me and tenderly kissed my tears away. He weeps when we are hurting and He rejoices with us when we are happy. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that Jesus doesn’t care. He does care!
