"You Are Worth More Than Many Sparrows!"


Jesus is talking to his disciples in Matthew "...What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light, what you hear whispered proclaim on the housetops.  And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul, rather be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.  Are not two sparrows sold for a small coin?  Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father's knowledge.  Even all the hairs of your head are counted.  So do not be afraid; you are worth more then many sparrows.  Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father. But whoever denies me before others, I will deny before my heavenly Father..." Matthew 10: 27 - 32

If our heavenly Father knows how many hairs are on our head we really need to refocus and let Him help us to live a fulfilling life according to His will.  In Daily Readings For Devoted Living by INTOUCH.ORG November 2016 Charles F. Stanley reminds us, "If our loving, OMNIPOTENT FATHER, really does desire to meet His children's needs, then why do some go unmet?  The first reason: We don't ASK 2: We ask but doubt that God can or will do it.  3: We ask GOD to address the symptom, not the real need.  Dr. Stanley continues, "...ask yourself, Is it possible that I could be standing in the way of God's intervention?"

As for myself, a door closed shut recently  but in my sadness a new door opened...two doors actually, and I am very grateful.  I know to ask, I know to wait, I know to say thank you to my Omnipotent Heavenly Father.
