I Am The Apple Of God's Eye

We heard a lot of people complaining that God doesn't care about them. In fact, we sometimes hear ourselves saying the same. But I challenge you to ponder on this fact.
"...for whoever touches you touches the apple of God's eye." Zechariah 2:8 NIV
We are very precious in God's eyes. He takes good care of us. He does what is best for us. At times, we may don't understand what is happening in our lives, but rest assured, He is in control. And nothing harm befalls to His children. We are the apple of His eyes ("apple" means "pupil") and like anybody else, nobody wants their eye's pupil be touched. It is our natural instinct to protect our pupil at all cost. And that is what God is exactly doing for us. He is protecting us at all cost. Even to the point of giving His son to die on the cross for us. We are the apple of God's eye.
