Does Our Happiness Matter to God?
The following is a link to a video response of Ravi Zacharias answering a question about God’s relationship with man and in particular about his caring and feelings for us.
During the video clip Mr. Z. quotes from a portion of a poem by Annie Flint. That poem plus a verse not quoted by Mr. Z. is printed below. RMF
Here is the link to the video: Does God Care about Our Happiness
He Giveth More Grace
- He giveth more grace as our burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength as our labors increase;
To added afflictions He addeth His mercy,
To multiplied trials He multiplies peace.
- When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources
Our Father’s full giving is only begun.
- Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision,
Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
The Father both thee and thy load will upbear.
- His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
His power no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.
