Recently, while sharing some of my chaotic life with a friend, we decided I may be taking up all of God’s time. We laughed.
The truth is I am pretty needy. On my list today is – I need God to help me get my day started, keep me safe in traffic, give me favor with my employers and customers and help me to do the best I can for the ones I work for and with, make me an example of Christ as much as I am able, open doors to share my faith with others around me, be on the look out for needs of others I can help with, help me pray for those in need and who need Christ, answer my prayers for my aging mother and father and their health issues and allow me to help them in this season of their lives, keep the siblings and friends I cherish in His hands and care that struggle with addition, heart issues, and other medical and personal concerns, help me walk with my friend through her battle with cancer and end of this life issues, help me find just the right shoes to match my pretty new dress, answer my prayers for employment opportunities for friends and family seeking employment, finding time to talk to lonely friends, helping my new endeavors with publishing my books and my authors’ books and knowing which contests to enter and how to be noticed in a noisy world, receiving more creative authors to partner with in publishing their books, finding creative individuals to enhance my authors’ work, creating new art work for my card and craft businesses, open doors for marketing my art projects and crafts, providing rest and relaxation and fun in my crazy life, help me with my diet and exercise goals to keep a healthy life, provide the workers to help fix my broken window and fencing, replacing my missing gutters, continue to keep my truck with over 280,000 rolling down the road, give me a hope and a future, guide my every step and more – much, much, much more everyday.
Whew! I think I keep God very busy. In fact, my friend and I figured we couldn’t see how God has time for anyone else because He is sooooo busy with me and my needs. Funny as we think this is, it is untrue. The Good News is that the Omnipotent (all powerful), Omnipresent (all present), and Omniscient (all knowing) Living God has time for everyone – no matter if they have a list of needs just like mine, a few less, or even more than I have!
God said, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End …Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty (the Ruler of all). (Revelation 1.8) He is the God of our past, our present and our future!
And NOTHING is too trivial for God as Job 36.5 tells us – “Behold! God is mighty, and yet despises no one nor regards anything as trivial; He is mighty in power of understanding and heart.”
Matthew 10.30 reminds us “… the very hairs of your head are all numbered” and Matthew 6.32 assures us, “for your heavenly Father knows that ye have need of all these things.”
It is a fact, God has time for everyone. He sees us and is concerned about every little detail of us and our lives.
