God Cares About The Little Things
7 Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
Earlier this week I had to go to a doctor’s appointment that required me to receive two shots. The nurse that was going to give me the shots, informed me that I would have to wait for one hour after I had received the injections before I could leave the facility. I was not expecting to be there that long at all. It was a super busy day for me, and I was in charge of a meeting later that evening, that I had not finished preparing for.
That morning right before I left home, I put some things in my bag that I needed to get in the mail. I had fully planned to drive to the post office after my doctor’s appointment, sit in the car and work on all of the things that I needed to mail.
After hearing how long I would have to wait after my shot, I told the nurse that I had brought some things with me that I needed to work on. I asked her if I could just stay in one of the empty rooms, off to the side, and work while waiting for my hour to pass by. She told me no that I would not be able to, in case they needed the room for someone else.
She then pointed to a seat out in an open area where everyone else was seated and told me that she could bring me a table and I could work there. I really didn’t like the idea of setting up my little makeshift office right where everyone would be passing by me, and probably wondered why I was setting up an office in the doctor’s office. I totally understood her reason for saying no and I calmly accepted it.
Before she went to get my medication that the pharmacy had sent up, I asked her for directions to the ladies’ room. Now, this is where I saw God show up. By the time she got back with my medication, and I showed back up from the ladies’ room, every seat had been taken by other patients. They had come in during the brief time that we were away.
She looked at me after she glanced around the room and said, I guess you will have to wait in one of the private rooms, which was exactly what I had asked for in the beginning. There was already a small table there for me to work on, and a big comfy recliner that I could sit in, and they even brought me some refreshments to have while I waited. All I could think was Look At God!
Ladies He truly cares about everything that matters to us, no matter how small or large. My question for you today, is do you see Him in the little things, or do you just look for Him in the big things because you don’t want to bother Him with smaller things?
Please know that He cares when it’s pouring down rain, and you need a closer parking space, He cares when you can’t find your car keys, or when you don’t have the funds to pay your bills. He cares about every detail of our lives so much so, that He has counted and knows the number of hairs on our heads. Today I want to encourage you never ever to think, that there is anything too small to consult God about. Remember, He loves us and He loves blessing us!
1st Peter 5:7
7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him;
26 it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.
