Autumn asks: Is He the God of little things too?

We all know that God is the God of big things. We take our big prayers to him and hope for big answers. Actually, if we are believing God we wait for the big answer, not just hope for it. I've done this plenty of times -- sometimes with answers, sometimes I thought not.

What I had never done before is ask for the little things. I mean real little things. Things that will not glorify God, stretch his powers in any way or really have anything to do with anyone outside of me. Yes, a self-centered prayer.

This week I asked for a small, self-centered prayer, all the while admitting to God that is was exactly that. I had big prayers also, but this was just not related. I had no reason to expect an answer.

Not only did God answer with a BIG yes to my little prayer...he then turned it around on me and used us to bless three other families in a little way along with my yes.

Did you get that?

He gave me my selfish request and then turned it into a blessing for others.

How can it get any better than that???

Want to really feel loved and blessed? Let him be the God of the little things also.
