Hear: This is not a new verse to me. Here: Last week, at the mind gym, had a new, meditative, thought about said verse:
“The very hairs of your head are all numbered.” (Matthew 10:30)
Hair: An intimate item, huh? An intimate knowledge… Amount/count changes at birth, infancy, adolescence, adulthood… everyday of life and throughout our day this number changes!! (Read that an average human head has 100,000 hairs.) Hey, but who’s average?! 😉 That’s the point… when Jesus said this to his disciples… he was not referring to a mere act of quantifying nor innumerability … unlike some so-called leaders who treat fellow-humans as just a number; nothing more nor less.
Do the closest humans/my family/closest relationships know this intricate-detail, ever-changing information about me?? I have no idea how much hair is atop my head at this moment in time. (I do know my long hair easily tangles/gets wavy IF I keep it wrapped in a knot/bun for any length of time… okay, back to the point) Almighty God, the True God of the Bible/God of Agape Love/Compassion/Yahweh/Jehovah is not an impersonal/distant force incapable of up-close and personal/individual/intimate relationship!! The True God of the Bible is not the same mean, distant, mystery of a caricature distorted by man-made doctrine or lies promulgated by false religion or by so-called priests that don’t even read/study/know the Bible, (but promote church traditions/fallible ideas as pure gospel)!… All these components combine like paparazzi jockeying to get the most unflattering/shocking photo of a popular celebrity (aka God) to make money!
Think about it, besides amazing math skills!!…Talk about love, individual interest, individual care, individual concern, individual consideration… the scriptures say the True God of Compassion knows us through and through and knows the unique trials we face individually. Jesus taught God loves humans as specific individuals (with a specific hair count)!:)
Do you not know? Have you not heard?
Jehovah, the Creator of the ends of the earth, is a God for all eternity.
He never tires out or grows weary.
His understanding is unreachable*(or cannot be fathomed). (Isaiah 40:28)
Jehovah is the Source of dynamic energy. Consider, for example, the amount of energy that he supplies just to our sun. Science writer David Bodanis observed: “The mass our Sun is exploding into energy each second is equivalent to [billions of atomic] bombs.” Another researcher calculated that the sun “currently radiates . . . sufficient energy in one second to meet mankind’s needs for 200,000 years”! Can anyone doubt that the One who “fuels” the sun can give us the strength we need to cope with any problem? (excerpted: He Gives Power to the Tired One w 2018)
🙂 lol… (being corny)… Weary?? Hairy?? Hear Ye: “He will make You firm, He will make you strong.” (1 Peter 5:10) “Jehovah is aware of what the blameless go through.” (Psalm 37:18)…and the hair “less” too. 😉
