Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father.
In today’s Scripture verse, Jesus tells us that not even a sparrow falls to the ground apart from God’s knowledge. And 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 anyway!
Perhaps today you feel a little 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 over.
If so, remember that with Jesus, no failure is final. The Lord can restore you! 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?
REJOICE IN THE FACT THAT GOD KNOWS YOU BETTER THAN ANYONE… AND LOVES YOU MORE THAN ANYONE!
