The God of Everything!

“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19

He is God.

He is God every day, every hour, in every circumstance.

I don’t know about you, but, for me, it seems easier to trust God with the big things, than the little things.  Oh, how I love to read of God rescuing His people from peril or hardship or sin itself.  How I love to hear of a person saved just in the nick of time or God performing some amazing miraculous act, whether I read it in His Word or hear of a modern tail, the “big” and “flashy” help stands out and usually I have no problem trusting Him to provide when the stakes are high.

But, in the everyday?  In the ordinary?  That’s where I struggle to trust Him.

Today is Monday and, as usual, I am starting off my week behind.  Too much to do, too little time—same ol’ story.

Same ol’ stress too.

Oh, how that to-do list can overwhelm me to the point of despair.  It just seems so insurmountable.

And, then, God reminds me He is not only the God of the amazing and spectacular, but He is also the God of the ordinary.  He is the God who kept oil and flour in the jars to supply simple, ordinary loaves of bread. He is the God who fed His people with dew drops and flakes of manna.  Simple, ordinary–mundane even–but He supplied it.

When it comes right down to it, He is the God who supplies every breath and every heart beat of every day of our lives.  Oh yes, He is God of the ordinary and we can trust Him with every day, every hour and with every circumstance—oh and with that to-do list too!

Almighty God, You have the whole world in Your hands, including my little one here. I know You see what I need and I know I can trust You with it. Everything I have comes from You and I thank You for caring about every little bit of my life-big, small and everything in between. I place my trust in You for everything. You are more than worthy of it. Thank You, Lord. Amen.
