God Knows You Intimately..... Matthew 10:30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
Every day, your hair drops. Yet, God
knows how many hairs are left on your head. And He also knows how many are
growing back! He knows because He bothers to count them again. When it comes to
you, He always has time for every little thing about you.
So when Jesus
said, “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered,” He was not
exaggerating. He never exaggerates. He means what He says and He says what He
means. So for the Lord to say that the very hairs of your head are all numbered
means that He wants you to know that He is very interested in you and has
intimate knowledge about you — your body, family, finances, relationships…
everything in your life!
He knows the pain you have been having in your
body. He is aware of the financial worry which you have been keeping from your
family. He sees how your nasty boss is treating you. He understands the hurts
you have been keeping in your heart. He hears your heart’s cry for a miracle
Your heavenly Father wants you to know that as long as something
concerns you, He does not overlook it.
God knows you intimately. He knows
every small problem you are worried about and every single burden you have. And
when you approach Him for help, He has all the time for you as if no one else
exists. That is how valuable you are to Him and how absorbed He is in
Harvest is Coming
“I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase and the trees of the field yield their fruit.” (Leviticus 26:4, AMP)
God has set up seasons in our lives. It’s easy to get frustrated when our dreams aren’t coming to pass on our timetable, but every season is not harvest season. There are plowing seasons. There are planting seasons. There are watering seasons. Sure, we would love for every season to be a time of increase left and right, good breaks here and there. But without the other seasons, we wouldn’t be prepared. For example, it’s during the plowing seasons that God brings issues to light that we need to deal with. He’s getting us prepared for promotion.
If you’re not making as much progress as you would like, the key is to not lose any ground. Don’t go backwards. Hold your position. Keep a good attitude and do the right thing even when it’s hard. When you do that, you are passing the test, and God promises that your due season of harvest is coming. Be encouraged because your appointed time of increase, favor and promotion is on its way, and He will fulfill every dream and desire He’s placed within your heart. Remember, harvest is coming!
“...With us is the Lord our God, to help us and to fight our battles.”(2 Chronicles 32:8, NKJV)
I’ve learned that when the enemy attacks, God reacts. God doesn’t just sit back and think, “Well, I wonder what’s going to happen. I wonder what they’re going to do.” No, God goes to work. You are His most prized possession. It says in Psalms, “God is close to those that are hurting. God is close to the broken hearted.” God knows when you’ve gotten a bad medical report. He knows when you’re struggling in your finances. He knows when you’re being mistreated. You may not see anything happening, but you can be assured that Almighty God is not only aware, He is at work. He already has the solution. If you will stay in faith, at the right time, He will release a flood of His power, a flood of healing, a flood of restoration. He will not only bring you out, He will bring you out better off than you were before!
Pray with me...
Father, thank You for being my help. I know that You are with me even in the hard times; even when I can’t see a way out. I trust that You are working behind the scenes in my life and will bring me through to victory in Jesus’ name. Amen.
“If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God.”
(Deuteronomy 28:1–2, NIV)
God rewards the people who seek after Him. Every time you obey His Word, His blessing will follow. If you’ll learn to obey Him in the small things, if you learn to pass the small tests, there’s no limit to how high God will take you. The scripture says, “When we fully obey God, blessings will chase us down and overtake us.” You can’t outrun the good things of God.
Always remember, when you obey God in the small, He will release big blessings. He has big opportunities, new levels of favor, healing, restoration, vindication, promotion, planned in your future. As you stay faithful to Him, you’re going to step into the fullness of your destiny and be all that God has created you to be!
