Why Does God Trouble Himself With Us? 
When we each become born of the Spirit we realise how evil our past life was and we distance ourselves from it. However, we still have the love of earthly things and experiences and it is only by being aware that certain of them are becoming lusts of the flesh that we withdraw from the power thereof and ask our Redeemer to help overcome them. 
The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward. Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer. 
(Psalms 19:9-14)
Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted. 
(Hebrews 2:17-18)
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 
(1 John 1:9)
At the time of realising the occurrence of sin in our lives we come to understand how imperfect we are and wonder how God, who is The Holy One, can still look upon us and bother Himself with us, continually pulling us out of the gutter, straightening our clothes and giving us more spiritual food. 
When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: 
(Psalms 8:3-6)
Perhaps we realise that if we were in His position of authority we would not be so forgiving. 
Why does God take all this trouble with us; all this continual giving of Himself and continual taking by us? 
That God loves us we have learnt: 
He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me. They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay. He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he delighted in me. The LORD rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me. For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God. 
(Psalms 18:17-21)
Let's look at the matter as God has revealed it and believe that we who seek shall always receive enough to understand. 
With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright; With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward. For thou wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks. For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God? It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect. He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places. 
(Psalms 18:25-33)
Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me. As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me. The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places. The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted. It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me. He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man. Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name. Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore. 
(Psalms 18:43-50)
Another thought: Why all the trouble taken by the adversary? He must know something in the spirit world that we cannot see. 
As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father doth his children, That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory. For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe. 
(1 Thessalonians 2:11-13)
For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men: Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost. But we, brethren, being taken from you for a short time in presence, not in heart, endeavoured the more abundantly to see your face with great desire. Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us. For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming? For ye are our glory and joy. 
(1 Thessalonians 2:14-20)
Wherefore when we could no longer forbear, we thought it good to be left at Athens alone; And sent Timotheus, our brother, and minister of God, and our fellowlabourer in the gospel of Christ, to establish you, and to comfort you concerning your faith: That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto. For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know. For this cause, when I could no longer forbear, I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter have tempted you, and our labour be in vain. But now when Timotheus came from you unto us, and brought us good tidings of your faith and charity, and that ye have good remembrance of us always, desiring greatly to see us, as we also to see you: Therefore, brethren, we were comforted over you in all our affliction and distress by your faith: 
(1 Thessalonians 3:1-7)
And yet, as we have already seen, even the faith of babes can defeat him: 
*To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm of David.* 
O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. 
(Psalms 8:1-2)
And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves. And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them. And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the Son of David; they were sore displeased, And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise? 
(Matthew 21:12-16)

From the following passage, 
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him. And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire. But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail. But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation? 
(Hebrews 1:1-14)
we see that:
  • God has spoken to us through His Son. 
  • His Son, Christ Jesus, made the universe. 
  • The angels of God worship Him. 
  • God anointed Him above His fellows. Are these fellows angels, or the sons of God as described in Genesis 6:1-2 and Job 1:6-7? From the above passage and the first five verses of John chapter one we realise that the spiritual Person who we know as Christ Jesus was there in the beginning. Also He was not sent forth as the angels were. 
  • The angels minister to the heirs of salvation. 
Now, consider these writings that were read within a few hours of each other, to the glory of God. 
From the book written by Derek Prince, "Chords from David's Harp." 
When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 
(Psalms 8:3-4)
On Center Stage 
When we look up at the vastness of the heavens and consider their millions of galaxies, our earthly globe seems just a tiny speck of dust in the totality of the universe. Confronted by this vastness, we feel small and insignificant, weak and helpless. 
And yet, David assures us, God is interested in us. He cares for us. In fact, we are the objects of His special attention. God does not measure everything by numbers or dimensions. He has another scale of values, according to which - as Jesus Himself told us - one human soul is worth more than the entire universe. 
We have often tended to picture our earth as the center of the universe. In all probability this is not so. Yet, historically, it has been something more important - the stage on which the greatest dramas of the universe have been acted out, and are still being acted out. 
It was on the stage of earth and in the city of Jerusalem two thousand years ago that the drama of redemption was enacted. God demonstrated to the universe the value that He set upon human souls. He offered for our redemption the most precious thing the universe contained - the lifeblood of His own Son. Appropriately, therefore, Paul writes, "We have been made a spectacle to the whole universe. . ." (I Corinthians 4:9). The word here translated spectacle is actually the Greek word for "theatre". 
Weak and unworthy though we may be in ourselves, yet in the sovereign purposes of God we occupy the very center of the stage of the universe. 
Faith's response: 
Thank You, Lord, that You are more concerned about us, Your children, than about the entire universe that surrounds us. 
From the book written by Hal Lindsey, "Satan is Alive and Well on Planet Earth." 
Doubtless God had many reasons for creating man which we cannot fathom, but I believe the following are primary. God wanted to prove His perfect love and to show the angelic beings who chose to stay with Him that He had been neither unjust nor unloving to Satan and his followers by sentencing them to eternal banishment. God demonstrated this love to the fullest at Golgotha. 
Perhaps another reason was to show the complete folly of choosing to reject God's will. And finally, God wanted to elevate man above the angelic realm and to fellowship with Him. 
In the book of Hebrews God shows that man will rule the world to come; angels will actually be under man's rule: 
For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak. But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him? Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. . . . 
(Hebrews 2:5-8)
The apostle Paul says the same thing in I Corinthians 6:3: "Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?" 
But man is not just a pawn for a divine demonstration. He has destiny himself. God has great love and concern for each person and total forgiveness for the man who places his faith in the reconciliation God offers. 
Out of the millions of galaxies of the universe God chose one galaxy for His great creative efforts. He set apart one of the planets to be the stage of testing, a complex experimentation center, more comprehensive than any progressive corporation board of directors could imagine. 
God chose to construct the world in six days. (Although I believe He could have created it in a split second if He had chosen.) On the sixth day we read of God's greatest creation - man. 
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. 
(Genesis 1:26-27)
The important part is that man's immaterial being was created in the very image of God. God doesn't have arms or legs or a body in His essential being; the image of God in man is the possession of will, intellect, emotion, moral reason, and everlasting existence. All of this is part of what the Bible calls the soul of man. 
Angels also possess these qualities, with a few superior additives which set them apart from humans: angels have greater mobility and intelligence than man. However, men and angels have a vitally important quality in common - they both possess freedom of choice and the intellect to make choices. 
Once man had been created, he was watched by both the angels of God and the fallen angels. Fantastic thought, isn't it? We believe that we can take ourselves to a remote Pacific Island or an isolated mountain retreat and get away from everybody and everything. However, we still are being watched by angels. We know this from many passages in the Bible. 
In Luke 2:8-14 the angels visited the shepherds and told them of the birth of the Saviour. In Ephesians 3 it says that God is teaching "rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places" (terms used only about angels, describing their rank and order) many things about Himself through man. 
If man is the object of a great deal of study on the part of angels, we must ask "why?" What are they observing? What are they learning? I believe that God is demonstrating to angels that He was perfectly just in His eternal judgement of them and that His love is so great it cannot be fathomed by any created being. 
It's hoped that this mystery has been revealed in a small way to you. 
We have this promise from God:
And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets. 
(Revelation 10:5-7)
At this time the greatest mystery of all shall possibly be revealed "Where does the triune God come from?" 
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. 
(Revelation 4:11)
