Sometimes we buy into a terrible lie that we are worthless and not of significance to anyone, let alone God. I love this passage, a quote from Jesus, He encourages us to instead listen to Truth. God created us, He cares for us so deeply that He even knows the number of hairs on our head, can you even imagine that for a moment. We are of great worth to Him. Embrace your significance in Christ Jesus today and turn your back on the lies of the evil one. Have a wonderful day in the presence of the Lord.
“What is the price of two sparrows-one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid, you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.” ~ Matthew 10:29-31
It 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!
We don’t have to be afraid, for He 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.
His 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 as you are far more valuable to Him then they are. You and I are so valuable that God sent His only begotten Son to die for us. This doesn’t mean, however that God will take away all our troubles. The real test of value is how something holds up under the wear, tear, and stress of everyday life. Those who stand up for Christ in spite of their troubles truly have lasting value and will receive great rewards.
