He is in the details

Naturally, we get so busy in our daily lives that the mundane details of how we get from point A to point B get swept under the rug. We focus on the bigger picture of our day, week, year as the important thing. The details matter though. Sometimes we can get hung up on the details and feel like it’s so small and insignificant so why am I caught up on this?

Because we don’t even want to pay attention to the small details of getting where we are going, we tend to think that God is that way too. Would we admit that thought outright? Maybe not but our actions would.

When we find ourselves caught up or stuck on a menial task or a detail that is so not the big picture, we can often toil on it and burn ourselves out trying to figure out how to get over it. Without ever even thinking to pray and use faith on this small thing, we don’t ultimately go to God which shows we don’t think He should be bothered.

My friends, God is in the details. He is right in it with you. If it is tripping you up, He cares. Believe me, often times that’s where the enemy likes to play and hide. It’s in the small, seemingly insignificant details that he hides because he knows you won’t go to God on it. It can get bigger and way over our heads so fast – so believe me when is say, God cares about the details.

Week after week, month after month you find yourself struggling with the smallest thing – examples may be: waking up early, eating poorly, bumping into people before you’ve had quiet time with the Lord, putting off the bill, talking to someone hard to talk to because – you can. Any of these plus more can be small things that become huge mountains if not dealt with before God.

God is the God of heaven and earth. He formed the mountains, the oceans, the stars, the sky, the earth and all that’s in it – yes! He also formed you and “knitted you together in your mothers womb.” He knew you in the dark and called you by name. If you don’t already know Him, He has huge purpose for you. So, he cares about the small stuff and He wants your faith to look to Him when you don’t know what to do.

When you don’t even know how to pray, you can ask Him and He will tell you what to say by His Holy Spirit. His Holy Spirit is my personal best friend. Someone who you can trust will fight for you, hears your concerns, thoughts and victories too! He always wants you to win and to keep the best perspective. He is even with you when you sleep.

So, my friends be encouraged that God is with you in the small stuff! Which grocery store you go to matters, the people you bump into matter. Which outfit you wear – matters! Let Him in to every area of your life and you will be better for it!

“..the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.” John 14:26
