I will say to the LORD, “You are my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely He will deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the deadly plague. He will cover you with His feathers; under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and rampart. Psalm 91:2-4 Assuredly no subtle plot shall succeed against the one who has the eyes of God watching for his defense, we are foolish and weak as poor little birds, and are very apt to be lured to our destruction by cunning foes, but if we dwell near to God, He will see to it that the most skillful deceiver shall not entrap us and no plague will come nigh our dwelling.
“Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten in God’s sight” (Luke 12:6).
The Almighty God who keeps the planets in their orbits is aware of a lowly sparrow that falls to the ground.
Are you anxious? Fretful? Fearful? If the Lord takes such tender care of every bird He ever created, would He not care much more for His children.
As for your value, Jesus died on the Cross to save you from sin and eternal separation from God. He died to make you His very own.
You can rest knowing God’s caring eye is watching over you.
What’s concerning you today? Is there a situation that you’re apprehensive about? If so, you can place your worries in God’s great hands.
The Lord gently holds us. We have to worry, wonder, or fear the future. He hears our prayers and knows the concerns of our hearts.
Beloved, if your heavenly Father cares for the birds, and feeds them every day, how much more will He care for you, His dear, precious child! Let your heart be at rest as you hear Him say to you, “Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 6:26
