I live with 3 girls and one boy.  A mom (my wife), two daughters and a little 4 year old boy.  Me and my son are outnumbered.

There is more hair flying around my house that you can imagine.  It seems like the hair is in the shower, the tub, the sink, the floor, little hair balls seem to be all around.  There are blow dryers, hair straighteners, curlers, colors, sprays galore.  And the number and types of shampoo bottles in the various places are, well mind boggling.  There must be something about hair.  I was in the bathroom……well, you know……had a long time to ponder things and forgot the newspaper and was looking at one of the hair brushes.  It also was full of hair.  As I was,…well pondering this, I saw my wife’s hair, my 14 and 11 year old’s hair.  All together. 

Jesus was telling a story about his disciples going out to heal the sick, raise the dead, cast out demons.  Jesus told them that not even a sparrow would fall to the ground without it being the will of the Father.  Jesus then said, “And even the very hairs of your head are numbered, so don’t be afraid…” Matthew 10:30.   I guess that God has been busy around my  house numbering all those pieces of hair.  

I want you to know today, during the coming year, that God has numbered the hairs on  your head.  He knows you that intimately.  He cares for you that intimately.  No matter what you might face, or like the disciples that he was talking to at that moment, they knew they would face opposition and persecution.  God is with you.  He loves you.  He has been at my house lately, counting and numbering all the hair….He is headed to your house.  Remember he knows the hairs on your head.
