God Knows Everything

This morning as I’m leaving home to head to head to the office I planned to stop by Home Depot or wherever you purchase boxes.  I needed a few boxes to pack up my office at Parkway & to begin moving things to FBCJ.

As I’m driving down our street I notice that a neighbor of mine is in her yard & has a large collection of boxes at the end of her driveway.  I pull over to chat & to ask about the boxes.

She’s an older lady who has just moved to Clinton from Austin, TX.  Has a great story about she moved from Jackson to Austin and now back to Clinton.  We had a great 15-20 minute conversation.

It was a reminder to me that God is in the big stuff (changing lives, reconciling friends/family, job changes, etc.), but He is also in the small details of life.  It’s not hard for me to see Him in the big things of life, but I often forget He cares about the little details.

Matthew 6:25-34
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feed them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life[?

28“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
