An encouraging word for today.
Every morning my Pastor takes his time out to send everyone in our a church and few others a personal devotion via text. I appreciate the time that he takes on these because sometimes his words are exactly what I need to see. This morning was no different, as I am heading back to the Mayo clinic in Jacksonville for testing today. If you need a little bit of encouragement today this devotion is definitely for you. Feel free to leave a comment or a thought.
Matthew 10 : 29b-31
“But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.
God knows everything that is going on with you. If He sees every sparrow that falls, if he knows every hair of your head, He is concerned for you. Nothing catches God by surprise. He was not surprised when sickness came, He wasn’t surprised when sorrows came, He wasn’t surprised when the bank account said zero, He isn’t surprised or caught off guard about anything in your life. I know the next question in your mind, “Then why hasn’t He done something about it?” I will tell you this, He was in action before that situation happened, we just don’t see it at times and then other times we are too busy doing stuff that we failed to see God’s warnings and God’s signs. No, He doesn’t just automatically stop every situation that happens, we live in a fallen world, but what He wants to do is be your strength, your deliverer, your hero. I have seen God move in incredible ways in peoples lives that were on their death bed with cancer, not healing, like we want, but do incredible things in the persons life and those around them. I have seen Him move spiritual mountains and provide ways for His people when it looked impossible. But what is impossible with man is possible with God (Luke 18: 27). Faith is believing when you can’t see it, touch it or feel it. Faith is a knowing God has been on the move before anything ever happened. Nothing catches God off guard. NOTHING!
