Always There

Have you ever felt forgotten about or ignored? Overwhelmed or overshadowed by circumstances in your life? Have you ever been through something that you were certain couldn’t be right? You know, that “there’s no way the Lord planned this” feeling? If you haven’t, you will; and when you do remember Jesus’s words in Matthew 10:29-31.

Jesus reminds us that no matter what we’re going through, He’s always with us. He reminds us that every step is planned and every hair numbered. He is always paying attention and that we can trust His work in our lives. After all, we “are worth more than many sparrows” ( Matthew 10:31) and just as He clothes and feeds the flowers and the birds, He will take care of us.

So the next time you feel overwhelmed or forgotten, like you can’t handle what you’re going through or facing, remember that “not one [sparrow] will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father” (Matthew 10:29). Nothing happens to you without the knowledge of the Lord. He loves you and you are valuable, more valuable than sparrows. Our God knows what He’s doing, what you can handle, and what you’ll need to get through it. He equips us, sustains us and provides for us. So take heart, God hasn’t forgotten about you or your situation. He is Emmanuel, and He is always there.
