YOU ARE WORTH MORE THAN MANY SPARROWS

TEXT: MATTHEW 10:29-31
“Are not two Sparrows sold for a penny? Yet no one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So do not be afraid; YOU ARE WORTH MORE THAN MANY SPARROWS”
at a point in time due to many uninteresting things happening to us, after being beaten and battered by circumstances of life, we give up to our fate that there is nothing encouraging about our lives. Friends and families have tagged many useless and worthless because of the situation they are facing. Some have given up on themselves and have accepted the negative tag that the situation has made people to tag them with. They have lost their grip on the verse of the bible that called them “ A chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a peculiar people; THAT YE SHOULD SHOW FORTH THE PRAISES OF HIM WHO HAD CALLED YOU OUT OF DARKNESS INTO HIS MARVELLOUS LIGHT.”
The good news is you mean so much to God, no matter what the situation may be, God is interested in you and He loves you. He has your best interest at heart. He is not going to abandon you to struggle and remain in that mess forever! Don't fall for the lie of the devil to make you believe that you mean nothing to God because of what your situation is. He has promised never to leave nor forsake you because you are the apple of His eyes, He has also engraved you on the palm of His hands. Therefore He can NEVER forget or abandon you.


God is not only interested in the rich and the wealthy, He is not like man that only want to be recognised with influential people on the face of the earth, God is interested in the poor and the needy as well. Be rest assured that God is interested in you even in that your unpleasant state. If God can be interested in Sparrows that have no much value when sold, and He cares to know what happens to them, how much more you that He created in His own image and put His breath of life in you, do you think He can forget you? No, you mean so much to Him that He numbered the hairs on your head! (He pays attention to every details of your life). He cares about you more than you care about yourself and more than anybody can care about you. Never let any downbeat condition make you to see yourself as an unworthy, never- do – well, or a failure. Remember you are fearfully and wonderfully made! You are His creation; the scripture recorded that when God finished the work of creation, He saw that EVERYTHING was GOOD, that includes you praise God! From now on begin to walk with your head up, don’t let any situation bend your head in depression, don’t let people’s opinion about you determine how you see yourself (It is their opinion not God’s, and He has the final say). See yourself the way God made you (a Royal priesthood) and not the way your condition is making people to see you. BE CONFIDENT in the lord don’t be afraid or depressed FOR YOU ARE WORTH MORE THAN MANY SPARROWS.
