Do you ever wonder if the God of all creation is concerned about the little things in your life? Does God care about every detail or just the BIG issues?

Does God Care About Every Detail?
Have you ever gone to a group wanting to ask for prayer about a situation or problem you have in your life and then stopped before you asked? Have you gone before God and wanted to ask Him for help with a situation but then decided it was too trivial?
We sometimes look at our problem or situations and decide that, in comparison, other people have far worse going on in their lives and then we don’t ask.
I mean who am I to ask people to pray about my little aches and pains when other people have serious illnesses?
Who am I to ask people to pray about my problems at work when people have lost their jobs?
Who am I to ask for prayer about my little arguments with my husband when people are experiencing divorce or infidelity?
We often grade our need based on what other people have going on and we decide our issues are too trivial.
But God is not just the God of the big problems. He is the God of the little problems too.
God is not just the God of the big problems. He is the God of the little problems too!
Asking God For The Little Things
The enemy wants us to believe that somehow our needs are too small to ask for help. In doing this, it keeps us from going to God or going to our brothers and sisters in Christ for prayer. It keeps us struggling and trying to deal with our problems in our own power instead of God’s.
But the truth is, many times if we don’t get help for those small problems they can go on to become bigger problems. This is exactly what the enemy wants!!
He wants those small marital issues to become issues that lead to divorce!
He wants our little problems with our children to go on to become issues that lead to our kids going astray!
Our faith isn’t just for the big things…it’s for the smallest of things.
When we give thanks to God should it just be for the big, impressive things? No! We should give thanks for the fact that each and every breath we take is a gift. We should give thanks for the smallest of victories, the smallest of blessings.
If we should give thanks for the little things then why do we think the little things aren’t worth bringing to God for help?
Casting Your Cares
If our children have a problem in their lives, don’t we want them to come to us when the problem is small versus waiting until it escalates?
God is no different.
1 Peter 5:7 says:
“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.”
It says cast ALL your anxiety, ALL your cares on HIM because He cares for you! It doesn’t say some, it doesn’t say big ones, it doesn’t say only if your cares are as big as others…it says ALL.
What are you needing prayer for that you didn’t think was important enough?
Please share any prayer requests in the comments so we can stand with you, no matter how big or small your need! Your fellow believers would love to pray for you and with you!!
