How much does God care for those who belong to Him through faith in His Son? God puts it this way: "Can a woman forget her [nursing] child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands. . . ." Isaiah 49:15-16. Again the Lord says that not even a sparrow falling to the ground goes unnoticed to God. Even the hairs of your head are all numbered! (See Matthew 10:29-20).
Some years a go, a German scientist counted the hairs on different heads. He found that they vary in number, depending seemingly upon the color. There are more on a head with black hair than on a head with red hair, more on brown than black, more on blonde than brown. The black-haired woman has about 110,000 hairs on her head, and a blonde-haired woman has about 140,000.
The average woman with a thick head of hair will lose up to 100 hairs a day. Such losses are increased somewhat if the hair is long and becomes entangled in the brush or comb. The average man, shaving every day removes a beard about one sixty-fourth (1/64) inch in length. This means that between the ages of twenty and sixty-five, he removes 23 feet of beard! And to think God keeps track of all that hair!
Does God care about hair? He cares infinitely more for you, especially if you are His child. If God cared enough to give His Son when we were His enemies, how much more will He give to those who are His children through faith in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. God cares and so we can roll all our sorrows, all our troubles, all our worries, all our fears, all our disappointments onto Him, because it matters to Him about us.
Casting all your care upon
for he careth for you.
