His eye is on the sparrow
And will watch over it with care;
His loving heart watches over us
As He has numbered all our hairs.
God feeds the precious sparrows
As His eye hovers over same,
So how much more will He provide our needs
When we call upon His name.
But worry and anxiety
Will not add a cubit to our stature,
But rather will diminish and deplete
And with fear our heart will capture.
Worrying can cause much stress
When we try to take control,
Where we believe that we’re responsible
For situations to unfold.
He clothes the grass of the field
And with flowers will decorate,
So how much more will He clothe us
And ensure food is on our plate.
When our focus is on food and clothes
Idolatry can take place,
Because we’re to seek first the kingdom of God
And to seek His precious face.
Sufficient is today’s troubles
So we’re not to worry about tomorrow,
As His sovereign hand is in total control
So there’s no need for fear or sorrow.
As we look at the sparrows
They neither gather, reap nor sow,
Yet our heavenly Father feeds all of them
And guides them where they ought to go.
We are more valuable than sparrows
And His protective hand will guide;
He will provide our needs and all provision
When in Him we shall abide.

“Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

For your Heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.” Matthew 30-32
“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Matthew 6:33-34
