More Precious Than A Sparrow
Hey friends!!! I hope you are having a fabulous day so far, and if not, the good news is I have a word of encouragement for you. I recently had the opportunity and pleasure of opening up in prayer for a teens group that is near and dear to my heart. While I was praying, I was sensing that there was someone who was really struggling with their worth. I immediately began praying for this person for the blockages, hindrances, and distractions to be broken off immediately so that this person may receive all God had in store for them.
The funny thing is, I once again was in prayer this morning and this same message had been laid on my heart, twice. I usually pay attention when something hits two or three times because this is usually a confirming word in my heart. It was clear to me that God wanted me to share this message with you friends. So for all of those that need hope, to know that they are valued, validated, and loved, here is a special set of scriptures that came to me as I was reading my daily reading plan this week:
Matthew 9: 29-31:
‘What is the price of two sparrows-one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows’.
Wow, isn’t that amazing?! I believe God loves us so much and as our Father, He desires to provide for us and knows each of our hearts’ desires. So much so that He specifically tells us not to be afraid. Not being afraid means not fearing the unknown and what is about to come in your life. Not being afraid means taking a leap of faith no matter how scary or seemingly impossible it is! With God all things are possible. Nothing in your life will be left undone if you trust God as your provider. He is your giver of life. He breathed life into you and chose you for a plan and for a purpose; therefore He has created and found worth in you, otherwise you would not be here and you would have no purpose! You are so valuable to him that he accounts for all the hairs on your head and every part of your body it is His and He will use you to execute the plan for His kingdom. All you have to do is choose. Choose to be willing, to be a physical demonstration of His love. Choose to be willing to obey Him and allow Him to guide our steps no matter how insignificant it seems, no matter how long the process is taking and it didn’t happen fast enough, just trust and take those baby steps seriously. If you are willing to walk this thing out, you will go places very few will ever trek. You will only journey there to unknown, unchartered territory, if you cease from waivering and first receive what He has laid on your heart and then the steps you take will be numbered and the one thing you wanted shall be provided for and given to you by your heavenly Father. I love you friends!!! Until next time!!
