“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father.And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” (Matt 10:29-31 NIV)
Four intent felines sitting inside my bay window; they look outside at a little squirrel hungrily eating birdseed. My precious fur babies. The only thing that holds them back from jumping outside & attacking the sweet little hungry squirrel is the clear glass in the window. How ironic.
The glass in that window is like Jesus & the Holy Spirit. It protects the little creature from being devoured.
Many times as hurting Christians we may feel like our bodies & other things in life are literally attacking us. We feel the pain from our illnesses & the lack of sleep & rest. Many times we feel afraid of the thingsthat are going on in the world.
What we need to realize in our pain is that Jesus, our Intercessor & the Holy Spirit, our Comforter is seperating us from the evils of the world. Like the glass window, the devourer cannot touch us because we are protected by our Lord & Saviour.
Prayer: Thank you Father for being our refuge & protection. We ask for more faith to know that You are always there for us twenty-hours a day, seven days a week.
