Sandi York. . . God of Details

Necklaces, keys and shoes......God cares about the details.

Matthew 6:26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Many years ago when my oldest daughter was 6, her grandmother gave her her first cross necklace as an Easter gift prior to Easter. A day or so before Easter Sunday, we realized the pretty necklace was missing. We searched everywhere. Then the spirit spoke......God sees this necklace right now and knows where it is, ask Him where it is! So I prayed, and I thought, "Lord, increase my daughter's faith in this as well". So, I told her, "God"sees this necklace, and he is able to point us to where it is." A little while later, He showed us! It was down behind her bed in the crevice between where the wall and the carpet meet. From that point on, in our house, when we loose something, we say "God knows where it is." He has been faithful with the craziest of hundreds of lost things! I have since encouraged others in this remembrance of God's bigger view. I told a friend in Nashville to pray over a camera that she lost on a trip (could have been in a store or restaurant or hotel, or stolen). She knew His eyes were on it and acknowledged Him first. She located it, with His guidance. In this "stack", this seems like pebbles, but it is not really about the "items" as much as it is about the loving Father that cares about the details of our lives that increase our faith. For my 6-year-old at the time, the Lord used it as just one simple way to teach her little heart about His powerful eye upon her as she grows and matures in her faith.
