The Little Things 7-7-19

Jesus is even in the little things.  An example I have of that is quite hilarious to most.  I was trying to open a jar of Parmesan Cheese and it was shut tight.  I tried for several minutes before I said ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’.  It was still sealed tight so I put the jar aside and was about to say ‘except open this jar’.  Suddenly the lid popped up and off the jar.  I don’t know what was bigger, my eyes or my mouth, but I was so thankful I did not let those words escape.

When He walks with us, He is in the little things and especially the big.  I had my first mini stroke about two years ago, and as I walked into the emergency room the first thing I did was search out a bible because I was saying ‘well Lord, what do you think of this’?  I found a bible on a table and immediately opened it to read to whatever I came to.  This is how He speaks to me.

I opened the bible to Isaiah 43:2.  The Lord said to me in this verse ‘When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze’.

I immediately felt His peace, the peace that surpasses all understanding.  He gives you indications every minute of every day that He is there when you let Him walk with you.  Invite Him into your life for every day and for every night.  Repent of your sins.  When even the smallest things don’t seem to go right, focus your attention on Him.  Jesus is always there, always waiting, to walk with us every day.

God bless you as you know you are not alone in this day.  Even in the little things.
