Facing Fear

Matthew 8-10

S: Matthew 10:30-31 “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore, you are of more value than many sparrows.”

O: Jesus is giving instructions to the disciples for their mission to preach the Word. He is talking about fear – what to be really fearful of – damnation. He reminds them that a tiny sparrow is provided for by God. Since God knows exactly how many strands of hair each of us has on our heads, how much more then God will provide for His disciples as they spread the Word.

A: This is a very good thing to remember in life – that God is in control, to listen and to let go and let God. We need not be afraid because God “has our back.”

P: God, I try to be strong and brave, but I find it hard most of the time. Please help me to remember God will provide and through Christ, I can do anything.
