God Values You

“Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.” Luke 12:7

In a world where values are constantly shifting, I am grateful we have God’s Word to remind us how he values us. I don’t know about you, but I need the constant reminder. I am my own worst critic, but the one thing I have wrong, so many times is accusing God of not being there for me, not providing for me, or thinking that I am not worth His time or effort. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Three of the Gospel writers shared their versions of Christ with us, recounting to his disciples the value that God has for us. In Luke’s Gospel, Jesus goes into detail about how God cares for the flowers, the lilies of the field, and the most seemingly insignificant bird because there are millions of them, the sparrow. God cares for all of these. Christ’s point… You are more valuable.

To top it off… pun intended, God knows the number of hairs on your head! This knowing is not just the literal math, but the reason he put all those hairs there. The detail with which He created you is the point. Again back to the value he has for you!

We just celebrated the ultimate way God showed how much he values us. Christ’s death on the cross for your sin and His resurrection conquered death and sin. He did this for us. To deal with our sinful condition and to give us the power in Him to live a victorious life over sin. If He didn’t value us, then why go through all that drama?

So do not fear! You are more valuable and are valued by the God of the Universe! Believe it. Receive it. Live like you are valued by God, and tell others of the value and worth God has for them in Christ.
