“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.” (Luke 12:6-7 NIV)
How do you know how important you are? Because God knows exactly how many hairs you have on your head. According to Bauman medical, the human head has an average of 100,000 hairs. Depending on hair color people have more or less hair. For instance, blondes have 150,000 hairs on average, while redheads only have 90,000. Black or brown haired people are the ones who have 100,000-110,000 hairs on their head. And God knows everyone of them, in everyone’s head. You are so important, every hair on your head is numbered.
You are so important, every hair on your head is numbered.
God knows if you’re a redhead or a brunette. For some reason, He gave redheads less hair than everyone else. Maybe it had something to do with His numbering system. Because every hair on every head is numbered. We are that important to God. For us, from our human perspective, we can’t really understand how God could possibly know that about us. But He does. This is where faith comes into play.
Faith is believing what we can’t see (Hebrews 11:1 NIV). We can’t see the coronavirus that has paralyzed our world. Yet we believe it exists. We’re taking every precaution to not let it spread. We are believing in what we can’t see with the coronavirus. That is a form of faith.
Faith in God is believing what He says in His word is true. When He tells us He knows the number of hairs on our head, we believe Him. When He tells us in His word we’re to forgive our enemies and pray for them, we do it (Matthew 5:44 NIV). When we actively work to forgive someone who has hurt us AND pray for them, we’re walking in faith. We’re believing that we are doing what God wants us to do. We’re believing He will bless our efforts and use it to His glory. We’re walking by faith.
But first, before God asks us to do anything else, He asks us to believe that He loves us. He sent Jesus to die on the cross to show us how much. God loves us so much He sacrificed His only Son so that we could have eternal life with Him. You are so important to God, He has numbered every hair on your head.
