So when Jesus said, “Even the hairs of your head are all numbered,” He was not exaggerating. He never exaggerates. He means what He says and He says what He means. So for the Lord to say that the very hairs of your head are all numbered means that He wants you to know that He is very interested in you and has intimate knowledge about you — your body, family, finances, relationships… everything in your life! This numbering suggests a deep intimacy, that God knows us better than we know ourselves. And that He loves us beyond our wildest dreams. I often wonder how many of us actually live in this truth. Have a wonderful day in His presence basking in His love you us.
I believe most believers go in and out of that reality. Where they have had times of deep heartfelt tears just streaming from their eyes, overwhelmed by the awesomeness of that love. Also they all have had times of deep desperation, overwhelmed by fear and doubt of that love. Sometimes they can feel that God is so big and “out there” that He couldn’t possibly be interested in how many hairs are on their head. But the wonderful truth is that He is big enough and small enough – big enough to create the universe and small enough to be close to me…and to you.
He knows the pain you have been having in your body. He is aware of the financial worry which you have been keeping from your family. He sees how your nasty boss is treating you. He understands the hurts you have been keeping in your heart from a broken marriage. Your heavenly Father wants you to know that as long as something concerns you, He does not overlook it,
God knows you intimately. He knows every small problem you are worried about and every single burden you have. And when you approach Him for help, He has all the time for you as if no one else exists. That is how valuable you are to Him and how absorbed He is in you!
