And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Matthew 10:30,31

While I was talking with someone the other day, she mentioned something going on in her life. I asked if she’d prayed about it. She replied no, she didn’t think God was concerned about something like that…..she prays about the important things but not anything as small as this. I could identify with this thinking, and at one time my thinking was….after all, God has a lot to do all the time!

Then one day I happened to be visiting a church. After the worship service the pastor asked if anyone would like to come up for prayer.

Several people did. Clearly some had physical ailments; others may have had financial, family, or work situations they were seeking God’s help in. One woman had a cold, and she went right up for prayer along with the others. The pastors and prayer team prayed for each person that came, including the woman with the sniffles. No prayer request was too large, or too small.

There is nothing under the sun that is not important to God. All we have to do is look at our solar system, the starry universe, how a baby is perfectly put together before birth, the cell structure in our bodies, right down to a perfectly and intricately made bumble bee in a minutely detailed single flower.

He is most definitely and assuredly in details. And He is totally interested in the details of our lives. The Word of the Lord is truth, and it says that even the hairs of our head are numbered by God. He knows every single solitary detail about us. He IS interested and involved in our lives.

No prayer request is too small for Him. He already knows what is in our hearts and minds, and longs for us to come to Him, our Heavenly Father, to ask and to talk things over. Through the Holy Spirit, we can come to Him, trusting and believing.

What an awesome and amazing God we have, that HE would be interested in every detail concerning us. So “give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” (1 Peter 5:7) How wonderful we serve a God of details.

That is good news.
