|Good Morning Everyone,
Our theme for this month: “God’s guidance”
Our Bible verse for today: “Aren’t two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s consent. But even the hairs of your head have all been counted. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:29-31 (CSB)
Our thought for today: “You are of great value to God.”
Uncertainty can be scary. When we’re faced with having to make decisions about a difficult situation, and we’re worried about the implications of it for the future, it can be disconcerting and worrisome.
The thing to do in a situation like that is to first of all seek God’s guidance for your decision-making, as we’ve been discussing all month. And be sure to remember who He is. He is the God of history. He is the God of creation. He is the God of big events and He is the God of small events. He is the God of the universe, and He is the God of our individual lives. He knows all about the big picture stuff like political affairs, and wars, and the rise and fall of nations; and He knows all the about the smallest details of our individual lives – all the way down to the number of hairs on your head. God knows it all, God is sovereign over it all, and God values it all.
In Matthew 10:29-31 Jesus told us that God is sovereign over, and concerned about, each individual sparrow in the sky, and then He reminds us that to Him, we are worth more than many sparrows. So if He is concerned about sparrows, and watches over them, how much more does He watch over and care for you?
God has been caring for you and watching over you all the days of your life, and He will continue to do so right up until the moment of your death. Although sometimes the events of life may seem momentous, difficult, and perhaps even tragic in the moment, step back and view it all from the history of your life. When you do, you will see that God has always been there for you, He has always seen you through it, and that His plan is progressively unfolding in your life even now, in this moment, in the middle of these circumstances.
So do not fear. You are of great value to God – more so than all the sparrows in the sky.
