He knows…..and cares


As a christian it is good to remember that God has an interest over every part of my life.

Daniel 5 v 23 says: …” God who holds your breath in His hand and owns all your ways…”.
This statement in this verse ought to make us consider how deeply God is involved in our lives. We should not deceive ourselves into thinking that this principle does not apply to us because we are insignificant. It applies to everyone, high or low, rich or poor, slave or freeman, Gentile or Israelite, converted or unconverted. I have found it once again deeply moving to consider that the breath on which my life depends, itself such a fragile thing, is in the “hand” of an invisible God over whom we can have no control. He can stop our breath at any time. We continue living only because it is what He wants! There is perhaps nothing more absolute than the power God holds over us, yet we do not seem to acknowledge it.

And so because God is delighted to continue to give me breath surely he is interested in all I do and this includes anything at work – small or large, difficult or simple God wants to be involved. Will I let Him?

Have a great weekend.
