29. Seek the Lord in all things

Last night I once again experienced how great our God is! He is awesome and the Creator of the Universe, but what struck me last night was that He was also concerned about the small things in our lives.

What happened was my son was sick. He was okay throughout the day and at night he started coughing. He didn't stop once since he laid his head on his cushion.  Non stop he continued and it got worse. Later I was worried that he is going to stop breathing as he got cough fits! Now I gave him all the medicine I could think of that we had at home. Nothing helped. I then resorted to prayer. I prayed for him and trusted that he would stop coughing. But he didn't. I was on the verge of taking him to the emergency doctor, when the Lord reminded me of Vicks that we had in our cupboard. I haven't used it in quite a while. I didn't know whether it would work, but the Holy Spirit urged me to get up. So I did, found it and I just knew I had to rub it on his neck, under his feet and on his chest. And you know what, the coughing calmed down. Amazing. It didn't stop, but it was okay, I could wait till morning to take him to the doctor. The God of the Universe cared enough to give me 'small' advice.

The other day He also gave me advice concerning my teeth, believe it or not. I was starting to brush away my gums, and this caused sensitivity. I brushed too aggressively apparantly . I went to the dentist and they gave me advice and showed me how to brush correctly. I tried their advice, but it didn't work. I asked advice again and again, but still it didn't work. It was only then that I resorted to asking the Lord. I didn't want to bother Him with 'small' matters, so I didn't ask before. But now I turned to Him and within an instant I knew how I should brush. And you know what? My gums are healthy and I am brushing exactly the way He told me to. Amazing.

I can go on and on with examples, but I think you get the point. How wonderful that the Lord cares enough about me that He gives me advice on 'small' matters. I realized once again that nothing is too small for Him. He cares about me, about all of me and all I need to do is turn to Him and ask Him for advice. After all He said that He cared more about us than a whole flock of sparrows. Even the number of our hair is counted. Not one falls off without Him knowing about it.

Psalm 139:1-3 "O Lord, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my every thought when far away. You chart the path ahead of me and tell me where to stop and rest. Every moment you know where I am."

David puts it clearly for us here. The Lord even knows 'mundane' things like when we stand up and when we sit down. He knows everything and cares about everything. Next time, turn to Him if you need advice about every day life things. You might be pleasantly surprised.

Lord, thank you that You are always there for us. You are sooo amazingly wonderful! Amen
