This might seem like a random title for a devotion but I was found a dead bird on the footpath while I was walking my dog this week. It made me think of Matthew 10:29. which says, "not one sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it." Verse 31 goes on to say, "So don’t worry! You are more valuable to him than many sparrows." God cared about that bird but cares about us more. Sometimes I don't think we truly understand how much God loves and cares for us. We think that he is too busy with the other 7.8 billion people on the planet to care about us. The Bible makes it quite clear that he does care for us.
Here are a couple of more Bible verses if you're not convinced yet:
1 Peter 5:7
Give all your worries to him, because he cares for you.
For I am certain that nothing can separate us from his love: neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers or powers, neither the present nor the future, neither the world above nor the world below—there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord.
I call you friends, because I have told you everything I heard from my Father.
To the lonely, the oppressed, the sick, the hurting, those who are afraid, the depressed, the defeated, the tired, the lost - God cares about you. Don't give up. Tell him your worries. He won't leave you. He will sustain you.
