"GOD CARES ABOUT EVERY DETAIL"
I have changed my post around and put the Trivia Answers on bottom, so that I could change the pictures up better, and also get my message across first. Please tell me what you think, better, no, or indifferent?
Good Evening to All!
Are not two little sparrows sold for a penny? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's leave (consent) and notice. But even the vary hairs of your head are numbered. Fear not, then; you are of more value than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:29-31)
How many times have you heard, "don't pray about trivial things. God is only interested in the important decisions you have to make, or God isn't interested in the "everyday" aspects of your life, just the big important things. Well, I'm here to tell you according to God's Word that couldn't be further from the truth.
Just like a true friend is interested in everything about you, and what's happening in your life big or small, our Heavenly Father is also. After all He did call us "friend", and say He is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. (Proverbs 18:24).
Aren't you interested in all aspects of your children's lives? Everything from the kind of clothes they wear, to the friends they keep, to what they ate for lunch? That is called caring, and our God cares for us in the same way.
Through the power of the Holy spirit, God wants to talk to us not just every day, but several times every day. He wants to guide us away from all of the hindrances
of life and our loving relationship with Him and toward the good things that can help us bond more closely with Him and help us to have a more successful life in His arms. He has so many good things in store for us, yet if we allow the things of this world to get in the way, we can cause them to be delayed until we get back on track with God.
He care about the tiniest details of our lives. According to tonight's verses, He even keeps track of how many hairs we have on our heads. He cares about the desires of our hearts, and He definitely wants to reveal the truth about Him that will ease our worries and fears. We must remember that fear and worry are not from God. They are what the devil uses to keep us from having enough trust in God that He will protect us.
God's planned on having an intimate relationship from the very beginning, before you were even born. In Psalm 139:6 NIV, His Word says: "Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them can to be.
If we will just start our day off by asking Him what He wants for us that day, and to guide our steps, we will have total fulfillment with Him included in it.
If you will speak to Him, and allow Him to speak back to you by listening for that still quiet voice of His, His nudges will lead you in the right direction for every aspect of your life. He is a loving God who only wants the best for us, but can only be a part of our lives if we allow Him. He must be invited into our lives.
I have heard more times than I would like to admit people just going headlong with their own plans, and not asking God what He thought at all. Then, when the plans start falling a part, they blame God, or start questioning "why did He let this happen", or "it must not be God's Will". How can it be God's Will if we didn't include Him in the first place? Why is it "His fault if something goes haywire, when it wasn't His idea in the first place?
People need to wake up and take responsibility for their own actions and problems. If they aren't smart enough to ask the Father (who knows all, sees all and is all), for help, then they shouldn't blame Him.
We need to develop an intimate relationship with God and ask Him to be part of every aspect of our lives. I mean from waking up on time in the morning all through the day, big decisions, little decisions, it doesn't matter, He wants to be part of it. The more we ask Him for help, the greater our faith in Him grows and the closer we become to Him.
The Holy Spirit is as important to our being as breathing. We need to take notice of His nudgings and obey them just like we breath in and out. After all, God gave us this breath. HE breathed the breath of life into us. If His Spirit dwells within us, then He is just as important as our breath.
I hope that makes sense. I know what I am wanting to say, but sometimes I have trouble expressing myself.
Give the Holy Ghost a chance. Give Him Your undivided attention and allow Him to guide you. You can't go wrong with Him in the Lead.
