But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.
FEAR IS ONE THING that ruins people’s lives.
The Master is telling us how important we are to the Father.
He makes it clear that the very hairs on our head is numbered, which in itself is comforting to know.
He tells us how the Father cares for the sparrows. How non of them can fall to the ground without the Father being aware.
Then He tells us we are of MORE VALUE than many sparrows. Wao!
If the Father numbered the very hairs on our head, then it must be that He really cares very much. The Master then charges us to FEAR NOT!
What are we not to fear about?
About the things we desire from Him. Fear is an exhibition of doubt! Fear is lack of confidence in the Father’s ability to care and cater for us! It is like a child in school who is afraid the father may not send his fees!
The Master tells us if the Father cares for the sparrows, He says we are more valuable than many sparrows.
Instead of worrying, rest in the Father’s love and care.
The truth is the Father’s love, care and concern for us His children is unfathomable. Fear not! Worry not! All is at peace. Everything will go well for you. It will all work out more than you ever wanted it. Just rest in Him!
Remember, this is your greatest year so far! Rest in His love.
To the ends of the earth!
God bless you richly with great grace and many blessings!
If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
THIS IS HEART warming, really heart thrilling. To know this is so very comforting! Continue reading How Much More

POWER OVER DEMONS
Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.
WE MUST NOTE HERE THAT what the Master said to the disciples applies to us.
Here He gave power and authority over devils and to cure diseases. Awesome!
Here He gave us two things, dunamis, which is miraculous power, and exousia, which is authority.
Now we possess both power and authority.
Both are necessary to deal with demons and diseases.
