Believing for the Little Things

Do you pray for the little things in your life? Sometimes it is easy to believe God for the big very apparent things in our lives, but do you think it's ok to ask and pray for the mundane details of our everyday lives? I do! If you are a Christian and think God isn't interested in your every detail you are missing out! God has so much more to offer!

Did you know that Elijah prayed for the rain to stop and it did?

James 5:17

Elijah was a human being, Evan as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain , and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years.

The weather. Some might think that might be just a little detail that doesn't justify prayer. James makes a point t ok let us know that Elijah was human just as we are he prayed for no rain and there was no rain for three and a half years.

My family has a big Disney World trip coming up! While I have been busy ordering my precious almost 2 year old every custom Disney shirt under the sun I hadn't put much thought in what I would be wearing. I was starting to get concerned about financially being able to afford me the shorts that I wanted! I needed some new Nike shorts look alines ! I was praying to God and just asked him to help me. I had looked several places and couldn't find what I needed. He knew exactly what I needed to wear on my trip and I asked Him to stock Wal-Mart with what I needed. Two weeks went by. The Holy Spirit prompted me to check Wal-Mart and guess what? They had ever color I wanted in the exact shorts I needed! All for $8 a piece! I am so glad I invited God in on tho detail! Now He has taken care of everything!

Jeremiah 29:11-12

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

See God sans to be involved in every aspect of your life. He has plans for you, but you have to involve Him. It is a 2 way street. Just like this scripture says. I know the plans I want for you. Plans to give you a future. Call on Me! Come and pray to Me! I will listen to you! Look for me with your whole heart and you will find Me.

He cares. He cares. He will listen to you. He will listen to every detail You need Him to. You can pray you get a good parking place, you can pray that the weather changes, you can pray for God to help you find the perfect dress. You can pray. You can involve Him. He wants to be involved. Look for Him and to Him in everything.Every detail.

Thanks for reading!

  2. Really enjoyed this devotion. Sometimes when I am praying about something all of a sudden I get the thought "God has bigger things to listen to and react on" and I feel selfish about what I am doing. But He really does want to hear all our needs and concerns. Why do we feel guilty ? After all He is GOD and nothing is too big nor too small for him.

  3. Thanks for the comments! It's the Devil's plan for us to feel guilty! He loves it because then we don't involve God in our every day plans. You are right! Nothing to big! Nothing to small!
