Hi, I was encouraged by the verse above and thought I would share with you..
Right now, all around the world, there are billions and billions of little sparrows. They are busy flitting around looking for crumbs, and mostly going unnoticed or being scared away.
Sparrows are common. No one cares or counts their arrival into the world or their exit from the world.
No one but God.
If you try to search the population of sparrows you find no one really knows. There are far too many to be counted. I read there are more sparrows than people and there are around seven billion people on the planet. God alone knows how many little sparrows are on the earth and God alone knows when their little hearts stop beating.
Not one falls to the ground apart from Him.
How kind of God that sparrows are just about everywhere humans are. And something as common as a sparrow serves to remind us of something as deep as the tender love of God.
Jesus says we don’t need to fear because we are of great value to our Father. Our value to Him is proven in everything about Jesus. Our value to Him is humbling. He knows every detail, and every fallen thing, and what’s greater still– is He cares to know. As infinite as His great power, is His affection. What are you fearing?
31 Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
As always, I am stopping to pray for you now.
