“You comprehend my path and my lying down,
And are acquainted with all my ways.”
I lost my car key recently. After searching high and low for days, I resigned myself to my carelessness and decided to use my spare key instead. Then I asked the Holy Spirit for His help in recovering the lost key.
About a week later, I took my daughter, Nicole, for a weekday bike ride after school to Changi Village for dinner. I went by a separate entrance to the hawker centre to withdraw money, an entrance I normally would not have used. In what would be such a miracle, Nicole spotted a familiar-looking key hanging at the entrance of the hawker centre. I must have dropped it in the vicinity on one of my rides a week ago!
Does God answer prayers even when it comes to such seemingly insignificant matters? Is there something or someone in your life that seems hopelessly lost? Take heart and know that the God of the universe is not just all-knowing and all-seeing – He's all-interested in even the most minute details of your life! Nothing is too small for Him.
If you ever feel small or insignificant, hear again the words of the psalmist in Psalm 139. That should put things into proper perspective. - By RP
