Fear and sparrows

“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

Good news - the One True God loves and cares for you. Knows your coming and going. Your deepest thoughts, your shame, your fears, He knows you and has not forgotten you.

He made provision for you for anything you may go through. His Son to die for your sins that shame's hold over you is broken.

The world is His, fear not when the economy rocks like a 9.0 earthquake. He is our provider.

Fear not - in the Bible there are enough verses on fearing not to read and meditate on a different one each day.

Fear - will bite you if you don't nail that thing on the cross and realize Jesus covered it all. In Job, he lost his children and health and declared that what he feared had come upon him. My father-in-law told of a story a girl he liked that turned him down because he was a pilot. Then she married a man who became a pilot and died in a plane crash.

The only fear we need to have - is of the Lord. He is the only one we need to look upon in reverential fear. For that is the beginning of wisdom.

So go bravely into the day, no matter what comes, the Lord knows you and cares for you. If fear tempts you- look outside and find a sparrow and see how he flies, and know that God favors you, loves you, has only good for you.
