How Many Hairs

Matthew 10:30 Even all the hairs on your head are numbered.

Do you know how many individual hairs are on your head? I don’t. I guess if I was bald it would be easy. This verse is really talking about how deeply and completely God knows us – even better than we know ourselves. It also tells us there are no big things versus small things in God’s eyes. All things are equally important. We humans classify things as little or big. We say we are telling a “little white lie to keep from hurting someone’s feelings.” We think it’s okay to walk past someone with a need because we don’t have time or just don’t want to help. We pretend not to hear or notice things. God hears and notices everything. He knows when we notice things and walk away. He knows what’s in our hearts. He knows what attitude we have about each and every thing. He’s been dealing with me on attitude. At first it was after I opened my mouth about something. Now it’s as soon as I think of saying or doing or not doing something. I hear the word “attitude” and say it to myself. Then I ask God’s forgiveness and help in bringing my attitude into line with His will. Since He knows me so very well as to know how many hairs I have on my head I know there is nothing I can hide from Him. I don’t want to hide anything from Him. I want to quit hiding things from myself because I want to know all God wants me to know. Our question is are we willing to see ourselves as God sees us? He loves us so completely that He wants any darkness within us to move out and give more room for His Light and His Love.
