If I told you how God intervened in my life a couple of days ago, you might think I was gullible or naive. It was a simple little thing – (OK, it had something to do with hubcaps) – nothing like parting the Red Sea. But I know Who pulled it off. I call those brief encounters with God’s grace, winks. He winks at me and lets me know He’s there and He cares.
Have you ever thought a situation you faced was too small to trouble God with, too silly for prayer? Consider: Is there anything you face that isn’t small to God? Check out these words of Jesus:
“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” – (Matthew 10:29-31)
God invites us, through Jesus, into an intimate relationship, in which we walk together through the circumstances of life. As we do, we are humbled to discover God cares about how we are doing – even about the “little” things.
Knowing He cares makes the tough experiences more “doable.” Jesus spoke those words as He told His followers not to be afraid to tell people about Him, even in the face of physical violence. Because God cares and He intervenes or not, depending on what is best.
I would have loved to hear what Papa winked at you! You so inspire me! I have been struggling with feelings of loneliness and you remind me Who has me covered. And I want to remember to look for winks (or valentines as I call them).
