You’ve heard, of course, of Job’s staying power, and you know how God brought it all together for him at the end. That’s because God cares, cares right down to the last detail”. James 5:11 (b) (MSG)
Details are important, especially to God. He does not miss one thing concerning us, nor does anything that concerns us escape His notice. We can get caught up in the details ourselves in all the wrong ways, but God can take even the way the details have gone terribly wrong, and make them gloriously right!
Oh, beloved, how can we be worried or afraid? We are loved by the God Who put the universe in place and holds it together by His strong hands and the power of His Word!
Can you trust Him with your universe today? With all the pieces, large and small, for in His wonderful compassion and kindness, He cares for them all. Invite Him in, create the space, and let Him bring the beauty of Who He is in, to make everything beautiful for you!
Gracious Lord, thank You that You know, and care, about all the details of my life. You can see the pieces that are just as they should be, and all the ones that did not go right at all.
Some I broke Lord, and I am sorry. Some I inherited from my family, and they were already broken by the time they came to me. Some I gave to others, whole and complete, and they came back broken too. So often Lord, I just don’t know what to do.
Yet, I know that You do, Lord, You really do, and I believe You. Here they are now Poppa; all those pieces large and small, and here I am too. I come to You in Your kindness and Your care. I step back into Your love now and I wait for You. Strengthen my weak knees and heal the deepest wounds. I give You all the pieces, large and small, and I wait, with joyful anticipation, to see what You will do.
Because of Your tenderhearted love, I ask, and pray.
