Every moment there are opportunities to follow God’s will or our own. How many decisions do you have to make a day? A lot right? Before you make that decision, do you ask God what he would have you do? Now I don’t just mean “those big decisions”, but the small ones too.
You might say, “But the God of the Universe doesn’t possibly care about every little detail of my life. So why should I ask, if he doesn’t care?”
Here’s the amazing part…
He does care.
When you think about it, He shouldn’t, but he does! The God who made everything you see, cares about every detail of your life. Every detail. Doesn’t that fill you with such joy and awe?!?
I’ve been learning that I can ask or tell God anything. I can seek His counsel even for what seems like silly matters, because He cares so much. I’ve realized that I haven’t trusted God with every detail of my life. But I’m trying. I’m trying to ask for His will in “the small decisions”, in the dreams I dare not mention, and in the anxieties that hold me back. Doing this, God has relieved some fears, made me imagine beyond my expectations, and given me pure joy.
This is a process, and often times I find myself faltering and avoiding God’s advice. But He still waits for me. He waits with a loving smiling that speaks a million words. And He does the same for you. It’s never too late to commit everything, every little detail, to God. Even when you whisper one thing you’ve never told Him before, something happens. You know what it is?
Such delight fills the Lord’s face, that it could light up the night sky! Such love pours from His gaze that it surrounds everyone near Him!
Zephaniah 3:17 ESV
The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.
God loves it when we talk to Him! You just have to have the courage.
So, will you take the chance today and tell God something you’ve never said before?
He cares about every little detail.
