Rachel began to give birth and had great difficulty.
And as she was having great difficulty in childbirth,
the midwife said to her,
“Don’t be afraid, for you have another son.”
GENESIS 35:16-17 (NIV)
As we pray and immerse ourselves in the Bible, we can’t help but discover that we are of infinite worth to God. He cares so deeply about the needs of our hearts that he has seen fit to record the heart cries of others who struggled before us so that we would know we could express our deepest longings to him. He who has so tenderly numbered the hairs on our heads surely knows and understands our physical and emotional needs.
“What’s the price of a pet canary?
Some loose change, right?
And God cares what happens to it
even more than you do.
He pays greater attention to you,
down to the last detail –
even numbering the hairs on your head!
So don’t be intimidated by all this bully talk.
You’re worth more than a million canaries.
MATTHEW 10:29-31 (THE MESSAGE)
ON THE JOURNEY WITH YOU,
