His Eye Is Upon The Sparrow

His Eye Is Upon The Sparrow

About nine at night, the son and I were walking on a path where all we carried was a little flashlight on a moonless night save house lights appearing only from a distance as liken to lightning bugs illuminating a dark sky. We were not afraid, as we had prayed that Jesus would walk with us. During our power walk, we discussed about God’s place in our world. The son wanted to know how God could allow innocent people to suffer and die, if He loved his children so much. I did not know what to say to this young man who was struggling with his faith. I continued to point out God’s many small miracles within our own family. I told him that God approaches all of us on different levels and in different ways, depending on the level our faith. As we concluded our walk in the dark, we parted ways for a bit. As I sat on the outside steps, upon looking at the stars in the sky, an eye appeared in the sky. At that moment, I knew, that our beloved God never takes his eye off of his little sparrow, for even a moment. For a moment in time, his love shone upon me as I realized how very important even my mundane life and issues are important to him. For a moment in time, his eye was upon me…

I believe this to be testimony of a prophetic reminder liken to signs and wonders appearing on the earth, that even though the world and the days may be dark, God is faithful to watch over His people.

What comes to mind is “His eye is upon the sparrow.”

The expression, “His eye is on the sparrow” is meant to be a reminder for us in this hour that God watches over people even in times of trouble or persecution.

Fear God Alone
…28Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Instead, fear the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 29Are not two sparrows sold for a penny?Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. 30And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.… (Matthew 10:28-30)
Berean Study Bible

Job 12:7-10 7
But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: 8Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. 9Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? 10In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind. (KJV)

Matthew 6:25-32 25
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. (KJV)

Let Us Sing:

His Eye Is Upon The Sparrow

Why should I be discouraged and why should the shadows fall?
Why should my heart be lonely and long for heaven and home?
When Jesus is my portion, my constant Friend is He,
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me.
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me.

I sing because I’m happy;
I sing because I’m free;
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me.

Let not your heart be troubled; these tender words I hear;
And resting on his goodness I lose my doubts and fears;
For by the path He leadeth but one step I may see;
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me.
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me.

I sing because I’m happy;
I sing because I’m free;
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me.

Whenever I am tempted; whenever clouds arise;
When songs give place to sighing; when hope within me dies;
I draw the closer to Him; from care He sets me free;
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me.
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me.

I sing because I’m happy;
I sing because I’m free;
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me…
