“Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God. 7 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” (Lk 12:6-7)
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? (Mt 6:28-30)
The two passages of the Bible shown above illustrate the fact that God cares about such “little” things as feeding tiny birds, numbering the hairs on our heads, and clothing the grass with beautiful flowers! Jesus is the Person who is speaking in each of these passages, so He wanted us to know this truth.
We need to realize that compared to God—His power, majesty, and attributes—literally everything is little! But our creator God cares about everything and everyone He has made, down to the smallest details. It is He who upholds and sustains our lives. (Ps 3:5; 71:6; Isa 46:3b)
It is our God who has made provision for our healing according to Psalm 107:19-20; Isaiah 53:4-5; Malachi 4:2a; 1 Peter 2:24; and Matthew 8:17. The God we serve is our refuge and strength; a very present Help in trouble (Ps 46:1), and a Friend who sticks closer than a brother. (Pro 18:24)
The Bible tells us that:
- Those who seek the Lord shall not lack ANY good thing. (Ps 34:10b)
- As we delight in Him, God gives us the desires of our hearts. (Ps 37:4)
- God daily loads us with His benefits and blessings. (Ps 68:19)
- The blessing of the Lord makes one rich. (Pro 10:22)
- With God, ALL things are possible. (Mk 10:27)
These passages depict a God who loves to be involved in our lives, and who is concerned about every detail (no matter how small) of our lives. Not only is the Lord concerned, but He provides answers and solutions for every need!
Rejoice in His love, and in His attention to every facet and need of our lives.
