Bible Verse: Luke 12: 6, 7
Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows. Luke 12: 6, 7
Even the Very Hairs:
Isn’t it strange how we think God is not interested in all the facets of our lives? What do I mean? Oh yes, of course we pray for the new house, the mate, and the job, but what about asking God for advice on “smaller” matters. These can be as simple as what dress to buy, which pair of shoes will not burn our corns, or asking to be lead to the store that has the item we want on sale when our time and resources are limited. Why do we sometimes feel that seeking direction on these types of things is trivializing God’s time?
On countless occasions, I’ve listened to friends complain and mutter about something or other that they didn‘t think God would be concerned about. When I asked if they’ve prayed about it, responses vary from incredulous silence to outbursts of hilarity. Let’s clear this up once and for all — God is interested in EVERY element of our lives.
Don’t dishonour God by thinking that He’s not concerned about the food you put in your mouth or the fact that you only got 3 hours sleep last night. You are His child and He wants you to discuss your plans and solutions with Him. And, most of all, He wants to provide input, because who knows you best? Let’s not continue to delude ourselves by thinking we know all there is to know about what’s going on with us. More often than not we don’t, because we can’t see what’s happening behind the scenes.
I think it’s high time we take God at His word. If He knows how many hairs are on your head, why wouldn’t He be concerned if you perm them or press them? He knows what’s best for ALL of you. God wants you to talk to Him and to open up all the facets of your personality to Him. Don’t ever forget that God’s love and direction extends to your entire life.
