the very hairs
on your head are numbered.
29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one
of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of
your Father. 30 And even the very hairs of your head are
all numbered. 31 So don?t be afraid; you are worth more
than many sparrows.
says that His Father has taken the time to count each
one of the hairs on our head! While we may be pre-occupied
by the color of our hair or how many are falling out on
a daily basis, Father focuses in on each strand. What
incredible attention to detail!
is amazing to think that such insignificance in our eyes
seems so important to God. God is so big that He scoops
the oceans in the palm of His hand, and yet He is so small
that He can number each hair on our head. Even the falling
of an insignificant sparrow requires His attention. Jesus
encourages us that if our Father is intimately involved
in the falling of one sparrow, how much more is He involved
in our everyday lives!
don?t have to be afraid, for our Father is watching over
us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. He really, really loves
us and is involved in the smallest details of our lives.
If there are days that you feel alone, when you think
that no one is really attending to your needs, remember
this scripture passage. He has taken the time to count
each hair on your head, not because He is bored or has
nothing else to do, but to simply demonstrate your great
worth in His sight.
call to you is not to be afraid. He is in control of all
that goes on in your life and since He cares for the sparrows,
He will certainly care for you.
Father, I know You are in control of the world even when
I feel that my life is out of control. Help me to trust
in Your incredible ability to care for each detail of
my life. Thank You for taking the time to count all the
hairs on my head! I know You love me, and I believe that
my worth to You is of greater value than many sparrows.
I pray that the reality of this truth will seep deeper
into my heart today. In the name of your beloved Son,
Jesus, I pray, Amen.
