"Sometimes we feel foolish bothering God with little things, but we shouldn't. The Bible says: '...pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done.' (Philippians 4:6 NLT) God is interested in every detail of your life; if something is important to you, it's important to Him. In Bible times two sparrows were sold for a penny (on sale you could buy five for two pennies!) yet Jesus said, '...not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it...the very hairs on your head are all numbered.' (Matthew 10:29-30 NLT) When you learn to trust God in little things, you'll be able to trust Him in big ones." - The Word for Today
Feeling guilty today about life's trivial inconveniences (an office to relocate, BAS statement to file – late, oops – a shonky internet connection and copious spam emails to filter through – please, go away) in light of the floods and peril in the imploding Middle East, this message spoke to me. It might to you, too. Time to nib those little things in the bud before they become unnecessarily BIG.
