I know God is God of the big things. Just look at the earth, the heavens, the seas, all of nature! Amazing and astounding and beautiful and amazing.... Did I say that already? And I know that God is God of the little things too. Just look at a bumblebee, any flower, a drop of water, each and every microcosm of life. Yes, God is God of the great and small!
That in itself is humbling and awe-inspiring! The thing that floors me is how God cares about the little things in MY life. There are the big things, marriage, children, finance, health, etc! But there are the little things, my hair, my weight, my home and what is in it... you know, the things that are nice but not of earth-shattering importance to survival. YET.... He cares! Insert person with jaw hanging on the floor.
Now on one hand, its actually insulting to the Lord that I am so stunned. Its not that I should expect that, but its that I should not be surprised by His abundant and all encompassing love for me. On the other hand, I think the Lord loves that He can shock us into
I want to encourage you by reminding you that what it really boils down to, is, God cares about EVERYTHING you care about, big or small! Never doubt that!
James 4 v 6: But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble."
A great reminder to receive all of God's grace with humility and thankfulness.
