DEVOTION FOR THE SOUL
(Excerpts from the Devotion Bible
by Max Lucado)
What matters to you, matters to God. You probably
think that's true when it comes to the big stuff. When it comes to the major-league difficulties like death, disease,
sin and disaster - you know that God cares. But what about the smaller things? What about grouchy bossses or flat tires
or lost dogs? What about broken dishes, late flights, toothaches or a crashed hard drive? Do these matter to God?
He's got a universe to run. He's got the planets
to keep balanced and presidents and kings to watch over. He's got wars to worry with and famines to fix. "Who am i to tell
him about my late water bill?" I'm glad you asked. Let me tell you who you are. In fact, let me proclaim who you are.
You are the heir of God.
You are eternal.
You have a crown.
You are a holy priest.
You were chosen before the creation.
But more than any of the above - more significant
that any title or position - is the simple fact that you are God's child. 1 John 3:1, "The Father has loved us so much that
we are called children of God." We really are His children. As a result, if something is important to you, it's important
to God. So go ahead. Tell God what hurts. Talk to him. He won't turn you away. He won't think it's silly. Does God care
about the little things in our lives? You better believe it. If it matters to you, it matters to him.
Love in Christ,
