God Is In The Details

One of the most important truths God has woven into His Word is that He is engineering even the smallest details in order to accomplish His divine purpose in every situation.

Happenings that seem random, choices and decisions that seem spontaneous and uncalculated, paths that cross in seemingly serendipitous ways , all are being ordered by the Lord. “The Lord directs the steps of the godly. he delights in every detail of their lives.” (Psalm 37:23)

Does anything seen more random than the tossing of the dice? Yet the Scripture teaches us that the Lord orders even those things that seem unplanned or uncontrolled. Nothing, not one detail is random.

God’s Word points us to His ways one of the psalmists says, “I will study your commandments and reflect on your words.” (Psalm 119:15). God tells us to observe His ways to consider them and learn His ways and His well-worn paths. He tells us to become familiar with His consistent methods of dealing with situations and people. When we know His ways and recognize the underlying consistency in all His doings, we will see the divine will in the center of everything it is His way to manager the details, to act according to an eternal plan . “O Lord, I will honor and praise your name, for you are my God. You do such wonderful things. You planned them long ago.” (Isaiah 25:1) Whatever is happening in your life right now, even through it may seem as if circumstances are taking on a momentum of their own. God is acting to a plan that has been in place since the beginning of time. It may look as if the dice have been randomly cast, but remember the Lord determines how they fall. Through every page of Scripture. God shows us His ways. He uses everything to work out His purposes.

Grace and Peace to You My Friends
