THEME: ANALOGY OF SPARROWS
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.”
-Sparrows are colored birds that are widespead throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and America. They are symbolic is a concoction of Biblical events, and here they remind us of God’s love for His creation. Jesus says that sparrows are important birds and He remembers each one of them. Further that, we are far more valuable than the sparrows, and God has numbered all our hair. Isaiah 49:15-16 reiterates these statements saying, “can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! see, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me. The Lord reminds us of His unending love for us. His love for us cannot be compared to anything that He gave His only begotten Son for us. The Lord calls us to have faith in Him and not to worry about anything but to rejoice in His love, for by worrying no one can add a single hour to his life.
Lord You are our Father and Friend, thank You for loving us and choosing us. You are our Lord and Savior, thank You Jesus for dying on the cross for our sins. May You forgive us all our sins and remember them no more. Lord You are our Refuge and Strength, we rest secure in You. You shield us all day long, and the one You love rests between Your shoulders. Thank You Jesus for reminding us that we are more valuable that sparrows. Thank You for blessing us and sustaining us. Thank You for all You have done for us throughtout this entire year. We give You all our thanks and praise. You are wonderful Lord, You are loving Jesus, You are precious Holy Spirit. May You remember all those who are undertaking their exams and grant them success. May You heal the hearts of all those who are bereaved. May You hear our prayers loving Savior and amswer our hearts desires. We pray all this believing and trusting in Jesus name. Amen
