The One Detail You Should Never Doubt

On my journey through the Bible this year, I recently read Exodus 26. This chapter in Exodus is the scene when the Lord gives Moses instructions on how the tabernacle is to be built. As I was reading, I was reminded again how detail oriented God is. God had a specific plan and he desired Moses to listen and to follow those instructions.

I know there are people who have a difficult time believing God really cares about the seemingly, insignificant day-to-day pieces of their lives. However, when I read verses like the ones found in Exodus, I have no doubt that God cares about every single little detail of my life…of your life.

A portion of Psalm 139 popped into my mind as I was reading through these instructions the Lord was giving to Moses. “You knit me together in my mother’s womb.” Wow, Lord, I bet you did!

Can you imagine if Moses or even Noah were around today and they overheard us questioning whether God cares about the details of our lives? Can you imagine their responses to us?

Noah: Excuse me, but did I ever share with you the time God asked me to build a big boat? He is most certainly in the details!

Moses: Yeah, and what about the time God had me build the ark and the tabernacle? God is a stickler for details!

This also reminded me of all the little steps of faith we are invited to take every day in our lives. Do you think God cares about those little acts of daily obedience?

God noticed the lady who reached out and touched a corner of his robe…believing she could be healed. (Luke 8:43)

God noticed the prostitute who took a few moments to kneel down and wash His Son’s feet. (Luke 7:44)

God noticed the man who climbed a tree one day just to get a better view of that man Jesus. (Luke 19)

God noticed the poor lady who showed up at the temple and placed two small coins in the offering. (Luke 21)

If God is anywhere, He’s in the details. Never doubt that.

    I just listened to that same portion of scripture yesterday. I too was thinking about the details and how creative God is and how much He is interwoven in all of our daily lives.

    This is something God revealed to me two years ago. I was reading some of the ‘boring’ parts of the OT, you know they ones you can’t figure out why are in there. I asked God to reveal to me what He wanted me to see, that was it! God loves details. 🙂

      Over the years, I have spent much more time in the New Testament. I’ve been loving this journey through the Old.

    I love this Eileen! I’ve come away with the same understanding after reading in Exodus and Leviticus – God cares about details. He really does care about all the little details of my life, because there is nothing too big or small for Him. 🙂

    Many blessings, sweet friend!

      I think it will be interesting to one day see all the things God took notice of and we just brushed it off as insignificant. He sees everything.

    Hi Eileen, He most certainly is detail driven. Look at the human race! no one is the same! How many details does that involve? Great post and great reminder that God has got every base covered because He most certainly knows us well.
    God bless and thank you for linking up. I love seeing you there.

    I’ve read the same passages this week in my One Year Chronological Bible, and I love how you’ve been drawn to the fact that God is, indeed, into the details! Even the color of thread on the priests’ garments were important to Him. Amazing.
