 “The eternal God is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms.”  Deut. 34:12

 

 

 

Moses, speaking his final blessing upon Israel, foresaw and reminded them that “there is none like God…who rides through the heavens to your help.”  God was eager and always there to come to the aid of Israel.  None like our God.  That is true for us as well. 

 

So, why do we run to other things, and other resources and worldly sources for answers or help?  We have the eternal God and His wisdom always there, but it’s not enough for us, seemingly. 

 

My own heart is quick to run to a friend, my husband, a self-help book or trusted author or speaker for help with whatever is going on in my life.  Sometimes, I think what we consider the little things are what we are quicker to source out to others.  I personally feel, often, that this is too little to bother God with, and really, after all, I should have a handle on it by now. 

 

But, God is a God who cares about details, and the details of my life are no exception, for it’s in those little things that big things are made.  The shaping of my character, my heart, my inclinations, my attitudes, are all in the little things If I cannot commit the nuances of my life to a loving, infinitely-wise God, then I will fail to trust Him in the big things. 

 

As I develop a deeper walk with Him, studying His Word so I KNOW what He says, and opening the recesses of my inner thought processes to be exposed to His light and truth, then my very framework will be molded into a pattern designed to trust Him and talk to Him by default.  It will become my habit to talk to my closest friend about whatever struggle or question comes into my life. 

 

Do I trust Him fully?  Do I believe that He loves me unconditionally?  Then my daily habits will be open to the scrutiny of my Father, and I will relinquish my hold and control over those little things…that make the big things.
