Q:

I have a hard time believing that God is interested in every detail of our lives. Maybe He's interested in the big things that happen to us, but I think He's probably got too much else to do to worry about the small things. Am I right?


A:

No, you aren’t right—and you should be glad you aren’t, because it means that God is concerned about everything that happens to us! It also means we can bring even the smallest concern to Him in prayer, knowing that He cares about us and watches over us.

Why is God concerned not only about the big things but the small things in our lives? One reason is because He loves us. If He didn’t love us, He wouldn’t care what happens to us—and He certainly wouldn’t care about the little details that often preoccupy us or cause us the greatest worry. But He does love us, and we know this because He sent His only Son into the world to purchase our salvation. Jesus said, “even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid” (Matthew 10:30-31).

But we know God is concerned about even the smallest things for another reason: His greatness. Listen: God is so great that even the very smallest detail of the universe is under His control. The most distant galaxy … the littlest seed … even the smallest sub-atomic particle—everything was created by Him, and is under His sovereign control. God is that great! In Christ, the Bible says, “all things were created. … And in him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:16-17).

Most of all, God is concerned about you and me! If you have never done so, turn to Jesus Christ and by faith humbly submit your life to Him without delay.

Are you walking with God?

    I love Billy Graham, though I didn’t really know much about him until his death. I have enjoyed listening to his sermons. I wish you all the very best. And I pray for you and for his legacy.
