The Little Things

Lately I am just amazed by the littlest things. It blows my mind that the all powerful God of the universe would care about the tiny details. This sort of goes along with what I'm talking about: In Theo II class we were talking about the credibility of the Bible and how we can know that it is true and without error. It just came to me one day in class, God is sovereign and He controls all. God knew who was going to write the Bible before even Adam was created. I don't think I can even wrap my mind around that fact. Truly though, if my God would put so much care into making sure His word is written by the right people He will make sure it is without error and maintained. Only divine intervention really explains the fact that the Bible has so many copies and is accurate. 
But there is tons of proof as well that the Bible is God's Word. 
In fact, some helpful verses are: 
2 Timothy 3:16,17 - 16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.(ESV)
2 Peter 1:21- 21For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.(ESV) 

Anyways, to go back to my starting point, take time to enjoy the little things. Don't let life take a hold of you with its business so that you do not enjoy it. God has preordained what is to come and He holds the world in His palm. Rest in Him. 

We cannot know the future. But we can know this: No matter what comes, we are under the loving, caring, watchful eye of our great Shepherd, who also happens to be the Son of God!” - Our Daily Bread
