"So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows."~~Matthew 10:31
If the Lord cares for the birds and even knows the number of hairs on our heads, we never have any reason to question our value to Him. Yet, we do. We allow our circumstances to determine the way we think the Lord feels about us. We believe the lie that since life is difficult, He must not care about us. The enemy of our soul revels when we fall into this trap.
We continue in the enemies deception when we say, "I can't help the way we feel." The truth is, we can. Our feelings are determined by our thought patterns and what we choose to dwell on there. It's the reason we're told to capture all our thoughts and bring them into obedience to the Lord.
When we line our thoughts up to God's truth, then we actually change the way we feel. We gain His view on what is happening in our lives. The truth is: the Lord values us and proved it. Of all His creation, we're the only one He created in His image and sent His one and only Son to die for our salvation. We have no reason to fear, so may we live in this truth!
