Trust God In The Details

“Don’t worry over anything whatever; tell God every detail of your needs in earnest and thankful prayer, and the peace of God which transcends human understanding, will keep constant guard over your hearts and minds as they rest in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7.” Philipps. 


Do you tend to worry, or trust God with every detail of your life?

Did you know that God cares about every detail of your life.  There is a calm peace that floods your soul when you have a calm conviction that God is present and available every moment of the day. He is always with you and He is always available. He is totally trustworthy.

So, teach your kids to turn to God with every intimate detail, need and concern. I remember when my daughter Angela was about six years old and she had a desire to learn to dance.  We took her need for ballet slippers to God in prayer. Imagine how her faith grew when the next week we found ballet slippers in her size at a garage sale. She began to feel a deep conviction that if she prayed and believed God that He would hear her prayer and answer.

Now she is 20 years old and has just returned home from a summer on missions. She is still listening, praying, and believing God to be intimately involved in the details of her life.  It’s so much fun to live this way: walking and talking and believing God!

    Philippians 4:6-7 is one of my favorite verses. I am so glad that God’s peace is readily available to us – and He never runs out of peace to give! Teaching our little ones simple lessons just like the ballet slippers is so valuable – those kinds of lessons stick for life and build a firm foundation! Thanks for sharing today on Life giving link up (You and I are the first two up)!

      Ruthy, God knows how to build our faith! I just heard a sermon on this Scripture today! It is living in faith every day that helps us triumph over the details 🙂 My daughter Angela is now a married woman 🙂 Goes so fast.
