When I was a teenager, sometimes I didn’t even ask my father’s permission for certain things….mainly, because I knew his answer would probably be, “NO!” (Anyone else ever do that?)
God (our heavenly father) just wants to talk to us. He knows stuff! But, many times we don’t bother to ask for His help or advice because we’re afraid we’re not going to like the answer.
Are we carving out time to talk to God? Or are we, pretty much, carving Him out of everything we do?
So we don’t ask, and that just keeps us separated from God. And that can be very dangerous, because the
enemy has a plan to defeat us.
He goes about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour; someone sick, someone weak or someone separated and alone.
He wants to keep us separated from our time with God because that makes us “easy pickins’”. We need to stick close, pray continually and be anxious for nothing!
It may surprise us to know that God wants to be involved in even the smallest details of our lives.
- Yes God really cares about what we wear to work.
- He cares about what we make for dinner.
- He will help us with that difficult work project.
- He will tell us what to say when we dread making that phone call.
Just talk to God. Ask for help. He loves us!
We should never hesitate to take, even our small stuff, to God every day. After all, to Him…it’s all small stuff!
Thank you, friends, for all the kind words and overwhelming support that I’ve received since the publication of my first book. It’s been a truly humbling experience!
