Divine detail

The Word

Christ carrying cross up Calvary on Good Friday over dark and stormy sky

“The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.” Psalm 37:23

Thought

Does God care of the details in our life? Is he bothered when we come to him with things considered insignificant? No! God actually finds pleasure when he is allowed involvement in the details of our lives. He was meticulous in the creation of the earth and he is meticulous and intricate in each of our lives when invited.

Ever heard of his fermions? “For many years, the only known subatomic particles were protons, neutrons and electrons. By the 1960s, however, advancements in particle accelerator technology had shown evidence of hundreds of smaller constituent particles. These smallest particles fall into several main categories, most notably fermions, hadrons and bosons.” [source: University of California Davis]. Amazingly, Fermions can be broken down even further! As technology unfolds, I’m quite certain greater detail of God’s creation will also.

We are wise to invite the one who imagined and made fermions, to guide our steps and not trust in our own understanding.

 

Prayer

Lead me through the details of this day and each day of my life which you have designed. Amen.
