Luke 12:6-7 (NIV)

“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. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” (Luke 12:6-7; NIV)

Every single bird, every bug, every animal, every leaf on every tree is seen by God and cared for by God. What makes you think you — being made in His image — are not cared for, taken care of, or protected?

You are the apple of God’s eye. His beloved child. God has the amazing ability to love all of us individually. We are each His favorite.

The next time, you are worried that God won’t provide, or won’t protect you, remind yourself of the verses above. Look at the birds and remember that each one of them is cared for; and you are worth more than many sparrows.
