Doesn’t God get bored of our same boring problems and ill health? Why does he keep up with everything in our lives for so long .


A reasonable question. I do not know of you are a mother, but if you are, then you will be in a better position to understand God’s relationship with us. First of all, we need to understand that God is not a human being; limited as humans are limited. God is omnisicient, which means that he is aware of everything. The way Jesus put it in Luke 12:7, God is concerned about each one of us. “Indeed, the very hairs of your head are al numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. God is like a father. He cares intimately about his children. For us, it is hard to accept that he cares intimately about all of us at the same time, but this is what the scriptures say and my personal experience in prayer and God intervening in my life tells me that this is true.

Does God get bored? Being bored is something a human can experience. God is not affected by time, so I do not believe it even makes sense to say that God could be bored. It is hard for me to even think of God as bored, just as it is incorrect to think of God as being too busy. However, what I am confident of is that God really cares about all of us and, because he loves us, he cares even about the little details. I think back to when my children were small. Going to events like their little plays in first grade. In the bigger picture, I would have absolutely zero interest in a play by a bunch of 1st graders, but when it was my son or daughter, I gave great attention to every single detail. Why? Because they were my children. I believe that our relationship with God and his feelings about us are like this. From a human perspective it really does not make sense that God would care about our little lives, but I believe he does. He wants to hear your prayers. He cares about your problems because he cares about you.
