But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
As much as I love my daughters, I have never bothered to count the number of hairs on their heads. I don’t have the time to do it and I doubt I will ever want to.
Every day, your hair drops. Yet, God knows how many hairs are left on your head. And He also knows how many are growing back! He knows because He bothers to count them again. When it comes to you, He always has time for every little thing about you.
So when Jesus said, “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered,” He was not exaggerating. He never exaggerates. He means what He says and He says what He means. So for the Lord to say that the very hairs of your head are all numbered means that He wants you to know that He is very interested in you and has intimate knowledge about you—your body, family, finances, relationships…everything in your life!
He knows the pain you have been having in your body. He is aware of the financial worry, which you have been keeping from your family. He sees how your nasty boss is treating you. He understands the hurts you have been keeping in your heart. He hears your heart’s cry for miracle health.
Your heavenly Father wants you to know that as long as something concerns you, He does not overlook it, even if it is about your pet. I had first hand experience with this recently. A vet told me that one of my 5-year-old golden retrievers had the beginning of either hip dysplasia or arthritis. I refused to believe this and knew that she must have pulled a muscle chasing a ball, her favorite pastime.
So I began to confess that pain came from the fall and Jesus bought for us a pain free life and that my dog was going to reap the benefits of that. I also said that whatever she’d done would heal quickly. When I took her back to the vet and had her x-rayed, they tried to point out the beginnings of those problems, which I could see none of and refused to buy into those negative words. She took some anti inflammatory medicine for a week and pain pills to get her through it and two weeks later she’s back to her old self.
This happened for my dog who has no possibility to believe, how much more can this happen for you.
God knows you intimately. He knows every small problem you are worried about and every single burden you have. And when you approach Him for help, He has all the time for you as if no one else exists. That is how valuable you are to Him and how absorbed He is in you!
