DCLM Daily Manna 21 November 2021 Devotional by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — Eyes On You, Fear Not

TOPIC: Eyes On You, Fear Not (DCLM Daily Manna 21 November 2021)

TEXT: Luke 12:1-12

1 In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.

3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

4 And I say unto you my friends, Be not afraid of them that kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.

5 But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.

6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?

7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

8 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:

9 But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.

10 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.

11 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say:

12 For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.

KEY VERSE: “But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.” – (Luke 12:7)


A godly but invalid woman who was bedridden in the city of Elmira, New York, was asked if she sometimes got discouraged. She answered, “How can I be discouraged when my heavenly Father watches over each little sparrow and I know He loves and cares for me”. This response gave rise to one of the favourite songs we sing today – “His Eye is on the Sparrow.”

Jesus, in our text, taught on sundry lessons as His disciples and the multitude gathered unto Him. He warned the disciples of the hypocrisy of the Pharisees. He told them that there is nothing hidden that would not be revealed. Therefore, whatever they say in secret will be made open. They are to fear Him who can both kill and cast into hell; that is, the almighty God. He consoled them that they are of more value than the sparrows and even the hairs on their head were numbered.

Jesus cares for His own and values every believer. There is victory for those who have faith in the Son of God. There is no more fear of death for the believer because Jesus has destroyed him that had the power over death. He will inject sufficient grace, power and spirit into your life to overcome. Unfortunately, some people allow life predicaments to weaken them. They go away from the truth and fellowship of God’s children when the thoughts of such situation flush through their mind. Some complain and murmur.

Trials, tests and temptations may come but can all be overcome through the grace of God. Fear not; trials and temptations are meant to take you to your right position as a child of God. Whatever He has not ordained will not happen to you. You must resist the devil and watch him flee from you. Don’t ever fear; don’t ever give up. Christ’s eyes are on you.

God watches over the righteous.

Ezekiel 36-38



1. The example of Jesus on Justice
a. The Pharisees were very hostile and were threats to Jesus. Yet, while Jesus was in the midst of “innumerable multitude”, He publicly warned His disciples of the hypocrisy of the Pharisees, v1. Can any claim to love the Pharisees more than Jesus?
What can you learn from this as a preacher, teacher, follow up worker, parents or counsellor?

b. Jesus was clear on the fact that no man can cover the truth no matter how smart. The revelation may be immediate, delayed in this world, after death or may be deferred to eternity. When it blow open, all will know it, vv3,4. Be conscious of this fact👌
2. The eternal Judge with true Justice
a. God is the God of all judges and only Him has the final say. vv4,5.✅

b. It is the duty of God of truth to protect and care for those who support, speak and stand for the truth, vv6,7. No cause for fear while on the side of truth, God is always closer to the truth propagators and speakers👌
3. The Truth: Joyful and Just
a. Commitment to speaking, supporting and standing for the truth, no matter the attendant and temporary setbacks, will eventually lead to eternal joy and happiness. Jesus is always proud of such people, vv8,9.
b. Be committed to the truth at whatever cost. Never be intimidated or frightened, the Holy Spirit always prefers to help the truth speakers and supporter because He is the Spirit of truth✅


1. Ask for grace to be committed to the truth only and always🙏
2. Ask for faith that will never fear what the enemy of the truth can do🙏
3. Pray for members to be committed and consecrated to the truth and nothing less🙏
4. Ask that the truth of the word of God prevail and produce wonders at the coming crusade🙏



1. Why should I feel discouraged,
Why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely,
And long for heav’n and home;
When Jesus is my portion?
My constant Friend is he;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know he watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know he watches me.

I sing because I’m happy,
I sing because I’m free;
For his eye is on the sparrow,
And I know he watches me.

2. “Let not your heart be troubled,”
His tender word I hear,
And resting on his goodness,
I lose my doubts and fears;
Though by the path he leadeth,
But one step I may see;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know he watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know he watches me. Refrain

3 Whenever I am tempted,
Whenever clouds arise;
When songs give place to sighing,
When hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to him,
From care he sets me free;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know he watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know he watches me. Refrain

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
