But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Matthew 10:30
Modern technology has provided unparalleled views of the vastness of our planet and the universe. Via aerial photography we can sweep across endless plains and skim the peaks of immense mountain ranges—often without a single person or animal in sight. The thought might strike us, “If I was lost down there, no one would ever know.” No one on earth might know, but Someone in heaven would.
The psalmist David didn’t have access to the visual vistas that we have, but he knew enough about the immensity of the universe to know that God is everywhere and knows everything. David confesses in Psalm 139 that it is impossible to hide from God; He sees us wherever we are—beginning with our first heartbeat in our mother’s womb. Jesus amplified this truth when He encouraged His disciples not to be afraid. Not even a sparrow falls without God’s knowledge, and He knows the number of hairs on our head (Matthew 10:29-31)!
Yes, the world and the universe are big—but God is bigger! Never forget that He knows you and your needs.
If one thing lies at the basis of the whole biblical teaching about God, it is that God knows all things. J. Gresham Machen
