“What is the price of five sparrows – two copper coins? Yet God does not forget a single one of them. 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.” ~ Luke 12:6-7, NLT
The great and mighty God who created the universe is interested in every little detail of your life. This is a fact that I struggle to fully grasp. Jesus told the disciples that five sparrows, which are not worth a lot, are all remembered by God.
He knows you so well that He has counted every hair on your head. For this reason you never need to fear: to God you are worth more than a flock of sparrows. You can also boldly bring all the little worries and cares of your life to God when in prayer. There is no such thing as a prayer topic that is unimportant to Him. With one exception: your prayers must not be selfish. James is very clear about this (see James 4:3).
Selfish prayer requests will not be answered by God.
Heavenly Father, it’s so wonderful that I can share every little detail of my life with You. Forgive me for being selfish when I pray. Amen.
