His Eye Is On The Sparrow

When we read about the children of God in the book of Exodus, we think about the great deliverance the Lord gave His people from Pharaoh and how He delivered them out of Egypt and took them to the promised land.

Now for us we know the Lord has promised us a life more abundant and that whatsoever we pray for we shall receive. But when we read about the children of Israel, we see they suffered much in this process. First Pharaoh took their straw away and made life even harder.

Then after he let them go, he changed his mind and decided to pursue them and destroy them. The Bible tells us he overtook them as they camped by the sea. This army of all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh now had them surrounded with nowhere to go. I’ve been there.

Every time you think you can see the light at the end of the tunnel the next thing, even worse, seems to happen. Where is God when we need him the most?  “I thought I was following God and now it just keeps getting worse.”  

We read in Exodus 14:19, “And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them: And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so the one came not near the other all that night. You see sometimes when it is really bad in our life it seems like God isn’t there. Maybe the reason he doesn’t seem to be leading you is he isn’t. He is now behind you protecting you and preparing for your deliverance.

Matthew Henry said,

“The most noble and difficult ministry God will ever give us is when he calls us to simply wait on him. We don’t know how, we don’t know where, we don’t know when, but we do know who. God’s eye is on the sparrow, and he sees you where you are.”

Some three months ago I prayed for a woman. She was of a poor family where the father was too sick to work, so was the sister. She had hidden her issue of blood from the family for two years and kept working until she collapsed. There was no bed as I placed my hands on her head with so little hair left on it and prayed. I will never forget as this child of God looked at me with eyes that seemed so big in her wasted body from the floor of this house where they needed food. She said, “This will be my testimony when I am healed.” This was in February and when we returned to the Island at the end of April, she greeted us at the front of the yard with a smile and with a body God was in the process of restoring. Our God is a mighty God! He will never leave us nor forsake us.

Jesus said,

“Whatsoever you ask in my name I will do it!”

The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 15:57,

“But thanks be to God, which gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
