Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:29- 31)
Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. (Luke 12:6, 7)
The Lord reminded me these verses as I saw a couple of sparrows fly and settle on the ground while I was walking to work. They seemed to be happily chirping away. Sandwiched between the sparrow sentences is the phrase- And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Well, I don't think we can by any means maintain the count unless we are totally bald. Even those with little hair may find it difficult to keep count, but God who is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent does know even the minute details of our life. If God cares for the sparrows, wouldn't he care for you? You, who have been made in the image of God and for whom God sacrificed His only son Jesus.
The Bible tells us,
Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall. (Psalm 55:22)
The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him, (Nahum 1:7)
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)
We must believe.
