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.
