"Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered."
Jesus often argued from the lesser to the greater in making a point. His words above mean that since God has His eye on every sparrow and every hair of your head is counted by Him, how much more will He be in charge of every little detail of your life? Not one thing can happen to you without your heavenly Father’s approval. This is difficult for us to understand and believe because we are sinful, finite creatures who cannot fully comprehend the infinite.
Psalm 147:4-5 declares, “[God] determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.” There are countless-billions of stars in the universe, and yet God has a name for each one of them. God’s universe has no limit because He has no limit! This is the wonderful thing about the Gospel – that this infinite God came to earth as a man and went to the Cross for you. He knows you intimately and still loves you perfectly. What could be better than that? Could we know a greater comfort?
SOMETIMES WE MAY FEEL ESTRANGED FROM GOD - THAT WE ARE SEPARATED FROM HIM. BUT HE IS THERE. TRUST IN HIS GRACIOUS, INFINITE POWER.
