God Cares About The Little Things Too

As an owner of two dogs, occasionally I face the challenge of getting them outside to do their business when it’s pouring down rain. As a resident of Georgia, we experience storms that produce a lot of rain. So much rain that it is similar to the story of me like Noah having to build an ark. But, I digress.

Yesterday was one of those days. We woke up to torrential rain and my oldest dog needed to go out. As a female she squats down to pee and with all the rain she resisted at first. So, I did what any Christian would do. I prayed and asked God for a short break in the rain in order to get my dogs out.

You probably know where I am going with this. God answered my prayer and provided a break long enough for me to get both of my dogs out. I was very thankful and I let God know it.

God listens to and answers all our prayers no matter how big or small they might be. Why does He do that? Because He loves us with every fiber of His being and we should love Him the same way. “Thank you again Father for the break in the rain.”

How Deep Does Your Faith Go?

Satan replied to the LORD, “Yes, but Job has good reason to fear God. You have always put a wall of protection around him and his home and his property. You have made him prosper in everything he does. Look how rich he is!”— Job 1:9-10

Satan attacked Job’s motives, saying that Job was blameless and had integrity only because he had no reason to turn against God. Satan wanted to prove that Job worshiped God not out of love but because God had given him so much. Satan accurately analyzed why many people trust God. They are fair-weather believers, following God only when everything is going well or for what they can get.

Adversity destroys this kind of superficial faith. But adversity strengthens “real faith” by causing believers to dig their roots deeper into God in order to withstand storms.

How deep does your faith go? Put the roots of your faith down deep into God so that you can withstand any storm you may face.
