God Knows and Cares about Your Crisis

Jesus teaches that since God takes the time to know the seemingly worthless sparrow and since God knows the number of hairs on our heads, then Jesus’ followers can be assured that God is more aware of your circumstances than you are in the middle of them. 

Recently in the first post of this series, we revealed that the Apostle Paul provided two vital steps to persevere in trials or crisis. The first step, in a world with false teachers, false belief systems, and false hope, the Apostle reminds us to stand firm in what we know. The second step is to hold fast the traditions which we have been taught or learned from the Word. We simply identified those steps as: (1) Remember key principles and (2) Obey practical steps to encourage our perseverance.

This is our third principle to remember.

God Knows and Cares about Your Crisis (Matthew 10:27-31).

At times it can seem as if God does not know about our particular crisis. It is almost as if God has His eyes shut, is not listening, or does not care. You may need to hear and believe today this simple truth: God knows and cares about your crisis. Many Bible passages teach this (see below); however, let me highlight one primary passage first. Jesus, while talking to His disciples, said:

“Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. (Matthew 10:27-31)
