He Sees; He Knows; He Cares

Your heavenly Father knows.
Matthew 6:32

A visitor at a school for the deaf was writing ques-
tions on the board for the children. Soon he wrote:
"Why has God made me able to hear and speak,
and made you deaf?"

The shocking sentence hit the children like a cruel
slap on the face. They sat paralyzed, pondering the
dreadful word, "why?" And then a little girl arose.

With her lip trembling and her eyes swimming with
tears, she walked straight to the board. Picking up 
the chalk, she wrote with a steady hand these pre-
cious words."Yes, Father, for this was your good 
pleasure." (Matt 11:26) What a reply! It reaches up 
and claims an eternal truth upon which the most ma-
ture believer, and even the youngest child of God, 
may securely rest--the truth that God is your Father.

I still believe that a day of understanding will come 
for each of us, however far away it may be. We will 
understand as we see the tragedies that today darken 
and dampen the presence of heaven for us take their 
proper place in God's great plan--a plan so overwhel-
ming, magnificent and joyful, we will laugh with 
wonder and delight. Arthur Christopher Bacon

Reader, we prayed for the persecuted church today.
Every Believer must look at life from the perspective
of eternity--which is forever...
