You face day-to-day issues that may not seem life-changing, and in the big scheme of things are pretty trivial. Getting a parking place. A problem at the bank with your account. Your car needs to be serviced. An issue on your job or at school. You find ants in your house. They can’t find two of your shirts at the dry cleaners. I am talking about literally thousands and thousands of daily issues that arise as you are simply living your life. These are the “little things” that we never pray about and try to handle on our own.
Don’t you know how much God cares about you and loves you? The Bible says that He cares about you and loves you so much He even knows the number of hairs on your head. If God cares enough to number the hairs on your head, why would you think He doesn’t care if your keys are lost or your sprinkler system is not working? Let me assure you, HE DOES! I’m going to share something with you that will literally transform your life and your relationship with God. START PRAYING ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS IN YOUR LIFE, EVEN THE LITTLE THINGS!
God IS in control of everything at all times. He has given us the ability to communicate with Him at any time about anything. Take full advantage of that opportunity. Trust me, there is nothing you can do better than God! Let me repeat that so you don’t miss it. There is NOTHING you can do better than God. You are only making your life more difficult when you live any part of your life apart from God. You are carrying unnecessary burdens when you don’t take everything, even the little things to the Lord in prayer.
The Bible doesn’t say, “Call upon the Lord with the big problems in life but handle the little things yourself.” The Bible tells us to bring ALL of our petitions to the Lord. That means not just the big things in our life, but the little things as well.
John 15:5 tells us that without Him, we can do NOTHING! It doesn’t say we can do the little things, it says NOTHING. When you pray about those little things you face each day in your life, you are not only being obedient, you are not only acknowledging your dependence upon the Lord, you are taking the pressure off yourself.
Start to consciously make an effort to pray throughout the day as you are faced with decisions, with problems, with choices to make. Simply take a moment and ask God to show you the way, help you through whatever the problem may be, guide you in your decisions. After a while, it will become second nature, instinctive, to pray about everything in your life throughout the day. You will be amazed at how it will transform your daily life. Not only will you be living in the freedom of His strength, but you will start to live with great confidence because when God is guiding you and directing your steps, PrayerWorks!
