There are times that we think of something we want. And we think of ways to make this thing we want happen. So often we don’t talk with our Creator about it. We rely on our strength to make it happen.
Recently there was something in my life, that I have wanted for a while and originally when the opportunity came up I passed on it because of lack of finances. This opportunity was possibly coming up again. This time around I prayed and I envisioned myself taking advantage of the opportunity. I thought through several options so that I could take advantage of the opportunity. But God decided to take care of the finances so that I can take advantage of the opportunity!
A couple weeks, I was talking with a friend about their life and she told me that God recently provided her a sewing machine and a kitchen table. The kitchen table was the exact color she wanted and it matches her kitchen cabinets! These are both items that she wanted but due circumstances she was not able to get these items herself.
God does really care about our wants and needs! “Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” – Luke 12:7 I love that God cares for every detail of our lives! He delights in providing for His sons and daughters. God cared enough to not only provide a kitchen table for my friend but He cared enough to make sure it was one that matched her cabinets perfectly and it was the right size for her kitchen. These are details that are so small but they made a huge impact on my friend and her faith. In my situation, God cared enough to take care of the one barrier that was in my way and might I add it was a large barrier in my eyes. But in His eyes the barrier was nothing!
So the next time you think that something is too small to take to God, think again! Speak with Him about your wants and needs and then let them in His hands to take care of them for you. And there are times that He will give us what we want. He will always provide us our needs. I am not saying that God is a genie that He will give you your every want and desire. But I am saying that He want to hear about your wants and needs just like you would tell a friend about them.
