His eye is on the Sparrow

There is a great old gospel hymn titled “His eye is on the Sparrow” written in 1905. It is a song that depicts the innocence of a little Sparrow bird in a big world and if God has his eye on the sparrow. you better believe he has his eye on you.

There are eight passages of scripture in the bible that reference a Sparrow. It is used as a metaphor because a little sparrow was considered insignificant and of little value. Have you ever felt that way? Insignificant, unnoticed and of little value? The bible says that not one of the little birds could fall to the ground without Jehovah (almighty God) knowing it. What a powerful mental example of the way God looks at you and me.

Are you in a place where you doubt God can see you? Trust me when I tell you this, he knows how many hairs you have on your head now and how many you had yesterday. Do you really think you could be in a place mentally, emotionally or physically that God does not know where you are and what is going on? He knows everything about you. Everything. He knows how many times your heart has beaten since you were conceived, and he also knows how many more times before he calls you home.

When you feel that you are someplace that God cannot find you or that you are separated from him please know that you are only a breath away from his presence. Some of the most meaningful prayers I have ever spoken were prayed quietly in my spirit. God hears every one of them and he hears every one of yours. If you are a parent, you know what I mean when I say, the love of a child is unconditional and a love that you would die for. God looks at you the same way you look at your child and he hears with the same passion and focus that you hear your child.

Wherever you think you are, God is right there with his eye on you just like he has his eye on a little Sparrow. It is a big world, but he knows exactly where you are and exactly what is going on. KT

The below link is Lynda Randle, Mom Winans and Vestal Goodman singing “His eye is in the Sparrow” and then one of my favorite pastors, TD Jakes says a few words before the congregation takes over and starts singing the song again. It is 9 minutes of the best of who we are.
