“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father.”
In this verse, Jesus reminds us that not even a sparrow falls to the ground apart from God’s knowledge. Now, let me ask you, if God cares about a sparrow, don't you think He cares about you as a believer?
Well He does. It’s an amazing thought that the God who made the stars and calls them all by name is the same God who knows the number of hairs on your head!
Not only does He know the number of hairs on your head, He knows your name. Your name is recorded in God’s infinite mind and heart!
God knows you. He knows your past as well as your future. And the thing He knows better than anyone else is your heart.
Now, that might strike terror into your life at times when you realize that God sees the worst about you! But what’s so wonderful is that even though God knows the worst about you…He loves you infinitely anyway!
Perhaps today, you feel like you’ve let God down somehow. Perhaps you feel ashamed of something from your past…a failure that you can’t seem to get past.
If so, remember that with Jesus no failure is final. God knows your heart. He knows all about you. He knows what you need…and He wants to meet you at the point of your need today. Will you let Him?
God loves You no matter WHAT YOU’ve done or where you’ve been.
