Here we see tremendous truths about tiny things. Our dear Lord wants us to know that He knows about all our troubles, regardless of the size or sort! He knows, He cares, and He helps. Mary Winslow wrote, “What a mercy it is to have an Almighty Friend–powerful and willing to help in every time of need!
But when we read that every hair of our head is numbered–what encouragement we have to take everything to Him who alone can deliver us out of all our troubles. I think carrying our little troubles and needs to God, honors Him even more than when we go to Him with greater.
O what a mercy to be persuaded that whatever may be our circumstances, God is with us, directing and overruling the whole for our good and for His own glory. To know that He is ours–and that we are His. To draw near in faith, telling Him all that is in our hearts, conscious of having the ear and heart of Jehovah towards us. Is not this true, substantial happiness?”
Today marks the day that I enter into the fiftieth year of the ministry and I can tell you from experience that God never fails. He has supplied my every need. So as you face troubles both large and small my advice to you is that you do as we are commanded in 1 Peter 5:7, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.“
