Ever traveled a planned route and seen a detour sign? Ever felt thrown off course? I’m sure we all have. What is going on in these moments? How did we end up here? This wasn’t part of the plan!
While we may be surprised by detour signs or thrown off our PLANNED course in life, God never is. In fact, in Matthew 10.30-31, we read, “Not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your father knowing it. 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”.
How cool is that? Not only does God know what’s going to happen to us, he knows how many hairs we have on our heads. We don’t even know that about ourselves.
Even more importantly, we are of VALUE to God. He cares for us as a father does his children and treasures us. In fact, he is our father as the verse above says! So, take heart. You have a heavenly father who know and cares about EVERY detail of your life down to the very number of hairs on your head. I dont know about you but that’s a father I want on my journey!
