Totally Dependent On God!!

It behooves us to trust God with the small things just as much as we, trust Him with the big things. It’s truly unfortunate that many Christians today fail to turn their small and minuscule burdens over to God. In most cases, people who elect to do carry these tiny weights end up with 100 pounds of compounded pebbles on their chest and they wander why life is so difficult!! Yes, life is filled with little burdens. Lots of them!! You know, the details of life like bills and carpools and in-laws (not my in-laws, of course). The flesh tells you that God is pleased when you carry the load, that He will help you when you help yourself—particularly on the trivial, little stuff. I get it! I know we should always trust God to carry the heavy burdens that are beyond our ability—like our salvation, deliverance, healing, or getting out of a speeding ticket 😁. So, the real question is why should we bother Him with small burdens when He has all these wars, storms, and now a catastrophic worldwide pandemic to deal with? Beloved, God measures “trivial ” burdens a little differently than we do. We measure “trivial” burdens based on our ability to handle it ourselves, whereas God measures it based on our ability to trust Him with ALL THINGS (big or small). Most people have committed this scripture to memory, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight ( Proverbs 3:5-6). 2 Corinthians 2 5:6-7 is another scripture that most Christians remember, “walk by faith and not sight.” Simply put, Solomon and Paul are encouraging us to live life in light of eternal consequences and to trust God with every circumstance! So, today tune and turn your hearts over to the voice of the Holy Spirit and the truth of His Word (John 10:27; 16:13) and choose to live according to the strength that God deposited in you through the Holy Spirit that lives and works through you and never forget; NOTHING is too small or big for our God! He wants it all because He can handle it all!!
