The Hairs of Your Head Numbered by Charles Spurgeon
Spurgeon explores four different topics that pertain to Matthew 10:30: "But the very hairs of your head are all numbered." God's providence guided by divine foresight; His knowledge of every intimate detail of life; His valuation of everyday people that gives them great worth; and His preservation to eternal life so that no harm can befall a believer. These promises help to encourage believers and bring a valuable reassurance of God's special love. The sermon was updated to modern language. Quote: "If even the very hairs of our head are all numbered, if everything be really ordained of the Most High concerning His people, let us rejoice in the divine appointment, and take it as it comes, and praise His name, whether our allotment be rough or smooth, bitter or sweet." The text was updated to modern language.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834–1892) was born in Kelvedon, England. He came from a strong Christian family and Charles developed a love for reading books. At fifteen, a stormy day changed his plans and he went to a Methodist chapel in Colchester, where the service was almost given up for low attendance. At this service the message was look to Jesus to be saved, and he became a Christian. He never went to college, but he became a scholar through self-study. His parents were Congregationalists but he saw the need for Baptism after he read the Bible. He preached his first sermon at Teversham in Cambridgeshire and people began to respect him. The New Park Street Chapel in London was deserted and the young man from Cambridge was recommended. Spurgeon thought it a mistake and that he would not be fit for London. He was "borne down with a sense of weakness." His preaching was blessed with great success of effect and attendance. Soon the need of a much larger building was needed and the Metropolitan Tabernacle was built in 1861. He became a well-known preacher and is regarded as the "Prince of Preachers."
