Daily Promise – October 16 – He looks out for us


Luke 12:6-7 KJV

6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?
7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.


Promise #289: If I look after the sparrows, I will certainly look after you.

I love this passage of Scripture where Jesus tells us how important the sparrows are to God. Even though they do not have much value to us, He will not even forget one of them. In Matthew 10:29 Jesus tells us that not even one of them will fall to the ground apart from His Father’s will. This is the value He places on a single bird!

But then Jesus goes on to to tell us that we have a value to God worth more than many sparrows! So if God looks after and watches over these little birds, how much more will He watch over you and I! Our value to God far exceeds the birds of the air who neither sow or reap or store into barns (Matthew 6:25-34) so how much more will He take care of us!!!!!

The next time you are feeling anxious about the future, just take a moment and look at a bird, or squirrel, or a tree for that matter. God provides for all that He created because that is simply what fathers do. If He looks after even the most insignificant of His creation, will He not also look after you?  ~ Barry Adams
