The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. (Psalms 37:23 NLT)
The Lord delights in every detail? Really? I read this scripture a few weeks ago but then a week and a half ago The Lord really spoke to me about it. We had a Lizard in the house. Seth used one of Jocelyn's sand buckets from her room to catch the lizard. That night Jocelyn woke up coughing and I could tell it was her cough that always precedes her throwing up. I grabbed the nearest sand bucket just in time to save a mess from her bed. As I lay there beside her the rest of the night making sure she was ok I began to think about that bucket. Why wasn't the bucket full of toys? Jocelyn loves collecting her toys into buckets and bags. The buckets always have toys in them...and then I remembered the lizard. I thought, there had to be a lizard in the house that evening so that Seth would empty a bucket so that I would have an empty bucket to grab when Jocelyn got sick that night. That is when The Lord said to me, "every detail!" If He cares enough to make sure my little girl doesn't throw up all over her favorite toys, then He certainly isn't overlooking any of the big or small details of my life. He knows exactly where I am, where I am going, and every step I need to take along the way! He said, "you can trust Me! Big or small, I know all of the detail!"
Question of the day: Am I living like I trust Him with ALL of the details?
