I love having my windows open to let the sun shine, soft breezes, and songs of the birds in to fill my home with beautiful things.
So I found it ironic that I read this verse today during my quiet time with the Lord.
The progression to vs 31 is interesting in the scriptures.
vs 27 preaching the gospel out loud
In vs 28 God talks about the importances of the Fear of God over all things even over fearing people who can kill the body
Then vs 29 He talks about the worth of sparrows and how God's will and care is connected with the sparrows falling to the ground.
Then vs 30 He says the very hairs of your head are all numbered- crazy to think about
Then vs 31 We are more valuable then many sparrows.
I find this progression interesting because it's like God is encouraging that as we do preach the gospel and proclaim His good news, He is right there with us. He knows that people can be hostile to his message but we are to obey God over man every time. He knows that we might feel uncomfortable and discouraging but He wants us to be encouraged; He is right there with us.
He values us so much. He cares for us so much. He wants us to be reminded that we are more valuable than many many many sparrows.
If the Father looks after these birds and is will is done in them, How much more does God value us and will have His will accomplished in our lives.
What a freeing thought!!!
God is in control and values us. We are special to Him. He loves us so much.
You know what this makes me do?
Every time I hear a bird, I say, "I am more valuable then they."
If God hears and sees them, I know He sees me.
So with Spring in the Air and Birds fly here and there, remember God is looking more at you then them.
Enjoy the Spring and knowing that you are so VALUABLE.
