Little Sparrow

I'm only a sparrow, but God cares for me!

Text:

Proverbs 15:3, "The eyes of the Lord are in every place."

Devotion:
One day, a little sparrow flew inside the house looking for food.   Everybody tried to chase the bird outside, but every time they came close, the sparrow would flutter away in a desperate search for a way out.  Before they eventually chased it outside, the bird flew frantically from room to room until its chest throbbed from its rapid heartbeat.

Sometimes we are like that bird and are anxious and afraid of what might happen to us.  But, it's God's desire to comfort and care for us.  In Matthew 10:29, Jesus reminds us that:

"Not one sparrow falls to the ground apart from God's will."

Yes, God sees and knows everything in the world and in our lives.   Proverbs 15:3 tells us that "The eyes of the Lord are in every place."  Nothing escapes God's attention and that includes you!  God understands us fully and in Matthew 10:30, Jesus said:

"The very hairs of your head are all numbered."

Now that's amazing that God keeps a count of all of our hairs!  He even knows when one little hair falls out!  Since He knows about such small details, we can trust that God sees and cares about the big things in our lives.

When we ask Him for help, God knows exactly how to help us, no matter what our circumstances.  So always trust Him to meet your needs and help you overcome your fears and anxieties.

God bless!
