Daily devotional: He knows my name and every thought

Scripture
What is the price of two sparrows--one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it.
Matthew 10:28 NLT (see vv. 28-31)

Observation
It is amazing that the God who created the universe, who stands outside of time and possesses all wisdom and power, cares so much for living things, His creation. Verse 31 says that I am more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows, none of which could even fall to the ground without God knowing it. I am so glad that God cares so intimately for me that He knows not only my name but my every thought, desire, and trouble before I even say a word.

Application
Don't be afraid; rather, trust in God and pursue Him with the passion that He pursues me with.

Prayer
Lord, You are so amazing. I still revel at your unfathomable glory, and your precious plan to give me reconciliation with You. I praise You and thank you that You created humankind so that we could choose intimate community with You. May I walk boldly, confidently, and in close communion with You because of these great truths. Please walk with me and help these next few days of transition be fruitful. I look to You and trust You fully. I love you!
