“Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.” Luke 12:6-7
Some people don’t believe God cares about them. They don’t think God notices them let alone wanting to bless them. They still have the notion that there are over 7 billion people in the world, and so how will God hear them when they pray? This is wrong. Anyone who is born again belongs to the family of God and is known by God. Your welfare is God’s concern. In fact, it is His responsibility to take care of you as your Heavenly Father. See what Jesus said in Matthew 6:25-32, “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.”
If God cares so much about plants and birds, will He not care about His own child? Beloved, God cares. You may say you have called upon God in the past and He did not answer. It could be because He is preparing you for the blessing you ask for, or He has released it but you don’t know how to receive, or maybe you have not learnt to fully trust in Him to take care of you. I Peter 5:7 says, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” It is only when you hand it over to God and LET GO that God will take control. He doesn’t struggle the steering of your life with you. There where you are, hand over any issue you are facing in your life now, with a confidence that God cares and He is interested in giving you answers.
Matthew 6:1-34, 10:29-31
Deliverance and Job
About 4 years ago, something like a wallgheko fell on my head while I was sleeping. Since then I suffered pains and every night, I had night mares. I started coming to church recently and got the oil and the blood and started using them. That was the end of the pains and evil spirits chasing me in the dream. Again, my son has been looking for a job but it was proving difficult. I prayed for him with the oil of gladness. To the glory of God, he finally got the job. Praise God!
