On my early morning walk, feeling the weight of the world on my shoulders, I looked up through a small clearing in the trees. In one quick glance, I noted the sun, two airplanes traveling in different directions, an eagle soaring above the treetops, and a common sparrow.

Trusting God for the Big Things

I never doubt the sun’s rising; I eagerly anticipate its comforting warmth.

When I’m on a plane, I sit back in my too-crowded seat, engrossed in a book or writing my own.

I never worry about how the pilot will safely guide me to my destination; I simply have faith he will.

I don’t fear the birds falling from the sky (though I may wonder about WHAT they might drop).

To my humble human perception, I may not comprehend the defiance of gravity in these phenomena, but I wholeheartedly trust that God will sustain them. And I trust Him for a host of other things too: like keeping the earth spinning in orbit, keeping the sharks and whales in the sea and off the land, and transitioning from the Texas summer heat to the arrival of autumn, etc.

Trusting God for the Little Things

If we are willing and able to trust God with such big things, why wouldn’t we trust Him with the aspects of our lives that aren’t as spectacular? The air conditioner repair, a misunderstanding with a child or spouse, a college acceptance, or sufficient funds at the end of the month to pay the bills?

God’s resources are unlimited. “You can be sure that God will take care of everything you need, his generosity exceeding even yours in the glory that pours from Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 MSG

His love is unfailing. “Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you.” Psalm 143:8

His promises are true. “God is ever true to His promises, and it was by Him that you were, one and all, called into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ, our Lord.” 1 Corinthians 1:9

His plans are always good. “’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.’” Jeremiah 29:11

He is trustworthy. “The LORD is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does.” Psalm 145:13b

Trusting God for every detail

We trust God for the big things, like keeping the earth spinning in orbit, and we can trust Him for the little things, too. In the grand scheme of things, our faith or lack of faith doesn’t negate God’s ability to fulfill His promises. Let’s trust Him in every detail, knowing that His love, plans, and trustworthiness are unwavering.
