GREAT AND SMALL…by Carl Gooch


Carl’s Thoughts – on the Great and Small
I was out for a walk in the park after bible study this morning. As I went along praying from my heart thanking Him for all the many beautiful things I saw He stopped me and had me look down. Looking down almost overlooked a tiny perfectly formed wildflower. But as I examined it closer I saw it delicate uniformed petals of white encircling a scarlet star shaped center. And I thought to myself how often had I passed this way and never even noticed this beauty from God.
Sometimes we get into the mindset of thinking of God as so great and powerful that He only concerns Himself with the largest of problems and has no concerns over the trivial day to day trials.
However we should remember that the same God that made the majestic redwoods is the same God that made the delicate small wildflower. And to each He gives a purpose.
The same God that created the heavens and earth and set the star above is concerned above every aspect of our lives. He wants to have a personal relationship with us. He wants us to come to Him with our doubts, fears, concerns and thoughts. He loves us so much He wants to guide us through the pitfalls of our lives. He wants us to know Him and the purpose He has for our lives. Our smallest concern is something He will address if we will only come humbly to Him with a prayerful heart.
He reveals the answers to our most difficult questions in His holy word, all we need to do is read, pray and meditate and allow Him to do the rest.
Sometimes it is in the small that the great is revealed. Often we show the mighty hand of God in the love we show to others.
