God’s in the Little Things

by Julie

“Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.”  1 Peter 5:7

Have you ever had one of those days? You know, you overslept,  running late and you simply can’t find your keys.  The house is a mess and you’re expecting company but you burned the birthday cake. It’s just one wrong  thing after another until you throw your hands in the air and shout, “Where are you now, God?!”

It’s easy to see Him and connect with Him when big things are happening in our life. God’s presence is obvious when we are experiencing breakthrough or moving into a new season. But what about when nothing extraordinary is happening? Where is He in those moments?

Recently, I have learned that we can find Him in the little things. When things are going wrong and when things are going great, God cares.  In our day-to-day routine He is present. In the subtle changes from summer to fall we can see His beauty. We hear Him in the song  on the radio that speaks straight to our situation. He can turn the mundane into adventure. He offers refreshment and rest for the weary.

Sometimes I laugh at how God meets me in such small but meaningful ways.

I was driving once when the Lord began to speak to me through the street signs. Signs I drove by and obeyed almost daily. When it came to the yield sign I nearly burst into tears. There were places in my life that were not fully surrendered to Him and that’s what He was asking me to do. It seems so little but it was such a turning point in my life.

What is important to you is important to Him. He created you and knows every hair on your head. Before the foundation of the world He knew you and loved you. He has promised you that He will never leave or forsake you. He will be with you wherever you go! Every detail of your life, the Lord cares about! Bring even the little details before Him. You can be confident that He will show up and answer you.

Be encouraged to ask the Lord to open your eyes to see Him in the little things. You will love what happens in your life and begin to see how God has been pursuing you in the past! Be also encouraged to bring those details, big or small, to Him. Watch how God responds. Remember, what’s important to you is important to Him.
