Summary: Many of us have allowed our lives to become so full, we loose sight of the important things. We get so busy with work, school, children, sports or hobbies, that we forget that God put us here for a purpose, and when we know that purpose and fulfill it, w
Matthew 10: 29-31: "Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. 30. "But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31. "Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
Matthew 6: 25-34: "Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26. "Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27. "Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
28. "So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29. "and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30. "Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31. "Therefore do not worry, saying, `What shall we eat?’ or `What shall we drink?’ or `What shall we wear?’ 32. "For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33. "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34. "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Jeremiah 1:5, 29:11: 5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; and I ordained you a prophet to the nations.’’…11.For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
I think these are very powerful Scriptures. They tell us how important we are to our Heavenly Father. God loves us and wants nothing but good for us. This warms my heart.
God loves me, He knows me. He knows how many hairs are on my head!
That really speaks to me. It warms my heart, fills it with joy and peace. It does not give me the joy associated with happiness, but that deep down spiritual joy that the enemy cannot take away from me. Spiritual joy, joy that does not come from my emotions or intellect, joy that does not come from how my life is going right now, but joy unspeakable.
Sometimes, we let that joy be swamped by our life. Not only attacks by the enemy, but also just the routine of living our busy life. Many of us are really going through a hard time right now. Lost jobs, decreased income, the uncertain economy. Recently we had some sever flooding in our area, and many lost homes and property and some lost lives. But many of us have allowed our lives to become so full, we loose sight of the important things. We get so busy with work, school, children, sports or hobbies, that we forget that God put us here for a purpose, and when we know that purpose and fulfill it, we have that joy unspeakable. If you look at our Scriptures again you will see several important facts. Biblical facts that cannot be discounted, put away, or ignored.
The first one is that we are important to God. God knows everything there is to know about us, even down to the number of the hairs on our head! So don’t think God does not know what you are going through. Nothing takes God by surprise. He is not sitting in the Heavenly places, in the great throne room and all of a sudden looks down and says, “Oh, what’s that happening with the Smith family. I didn’t realize he had lost his job and they were about to loose their house. Why didn’t someone tell me?” God knows exactly what you are going through at this exact moment! He knows when a sparrow hits the ground, so believe me, He knows what you are going through.
The second thing is He cares about what you are going through. If you look at our second scripture it says in verse 26, "Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” Verse 30, “"Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?”
