When life is tough, problems are coming at you like constant waves, and you’re feeling alone. It can seem like nobody in this entire world cares about you. But that’s not true. God cares for me, and God cares for you!
God’s endless, amazing love moved Him to send Jesus to earth to forgive all of our sins, allowing us to enter into a wonderful relationship with our Heavenly Father. Let’s explore some of God’s caring verses in the Bible!
Ways God Cares For Us
Scripture shares many ways that God cares for us. Here are three of the ways that show us God cares.
1. God Cares About Our Pain
There’s been plenty of times when I’ve had overwhelming troubles and thought, does God even care about what I’m going through? Reflecting on the hard times, now I can see God’s comforting presence through my struggle. Here’s what God says about hard times.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4, ESV).
And scripture tells us God sees and saves our tears. Did you know somewhere in Heaven your tears are being collected and your sorrows documented?
“You have taken account of my miseries; Put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?” (Psalm 56:8 NASB).
How precious is that? God not only does He preserve our tears, but He also keeps a record of all the times were sad! I like to think He records the reasons for our sadness. He cares enough to take note and can turn things for our good.

2. God Hears Our Prayers
The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. Psalm 145:18.
No matter what kind of problem you face, God knows what you are going through and He will do whatever He can to help! So cry out your prayers to God. Sometimes the greatest prayer is simple. God help me!
3. God Never Forgets Us
God will never ever forget you! God has your name written on the palm of His hand. He even knows how many hairs are on your head and God has a song for each one of us.
Our Heavenly Father will never forget us!
“Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne? But even if that were possible, I would not forget you!” (Isaiah 49:15, NLT).
God Cares for Orphans
As Finally Family Homes has pointed out, “Orphans don’t always look like what we imagine – neither superficially nor in circumstance. Orphans are those who need someone to come alongside them to help them finish growing up and preparing for the world, to be there with and for them for the rest of their lives.”
Maybe you have unsafe parents, or your parents might have left you, but God promises to take care of you now and forever. God will never let you down.
“When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take care of me” (Psalm 27:10, NKJV).
Let’s look at what else the Bible says about caring for orphans. It might surprise how much God cares for orphans. It’s a fact that orphans have a special place in God’s heart!
“The LORD watches over the foreigner and sustains the fatherless and the widow” (Psalm 146:9, NIV).
“Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans” (Isaiah 1:17, NLT).
“Do not oppress widows, orphans, foreigners, and the poor” (Zechariah 7:10, NLT).
Scripture tells of a man named Mephibosheth. Mephibosheth was an orphan, and he went through loads of troubles, but he ended up sitting at the king’s table. You never know what God has planned for you and how God will fight for you.
Don’t give up! God has a supernatural help available to you, whether you realize it or not!
Where in the Bible does it say God will take care of you?
There are many ways God cares for you and some of them are unseen. But scripture says that God will take care of you and here are some of those verses.
He sends His angels to watch over you.
Do you know you have angels watching over you? Well, you do.
“For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go” (Psalm 91:11, NLT).
The Holy Spirit is always present with you.
The Holy Spirit is there for you. The Holy Spirit is the ultimate comforter that Jesus died for us to have with us.
“But when the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of Truth who comes from the Father, He will testify and bear witness about Me” (John 15:26, Amplified Bible).
Jesus is pleading on your behalf.
Jesus prays for us and He knows our needs. Jesus knows how harsh the world can be since he walked this earth. Jesus will help you.
“Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us” (Romans 8:34, NIV).
What does God say about hard times?
When you’re going through hard times, you may wonder, “Does God Care?”
Unfortunately, we live in a fallen world where we have an enemy who hates us because God loves us. God has given man free will the power to choose to follow Him or not. And sometimes other people’s poor choices mean we go through hard times.
But that doesn’t mean God doesn’t care. He loves and cares for you through the happy and hard times. It can be hard to put your trust in God and His son when you may have lost trust with your family and friends. But God is always there for you, even when you can’t see it.
When circumstances are difficult, here are a few more verses to remind you God is on your side!
“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28, NIV).
“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you” (I Peter 4:7, NLT).
