Throughout our lives there are times we may feel discouraged and down, but always remember that God is by our side and watches over us through it all.
The sparrow is one of the smallest birds in the world and may be considered as of no consequence to many people. Know that God cares and notices when one of them falls to the ground.
Part of this coming Sunday’s Gospel, Matthew 10:29-31, “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. Even the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
If God cares about the tiny sparrow, how much more will he care for your needs,” His Eye is on The Sparrow:”
Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heaven and home,
When Jesus is my portion. My constant friend is He
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His Eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.
I sing because I’m happy,
I sing because I’m free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.
In prayer, we find the refuge of comfort as we commune with the one who loves us. We may find instruction that leads us away from danger as the good shepherd speaks to our hearts. The refuge we find in his word is everything we need for our lives through his promises.
When we make God our refuge, we have security in Him.
Be confident that God encircles you, taking care of you and protecting you. The more you walk with Him and trust Him, the stronger that armour and protection become.
