What Concerns You Concerns Him
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7).
Dr. G. Campbell Morgan, the great preacher of a century ago, once gave a compelling sermon about how believers in Christ should bring every request before God. After the service, an elderly woman walked up to him and asked, “Dr. Morgan, should I really bring my every little request to God? Doesn’t He have so much more to be concerned about than my little request?”
G. Campbell Morgan looked at the lady with a gleam in his eye and said, “Madam, can you conceive of anything that’s not small to God?” Well, the obvious answer is that there is nothing that’s not small to God.
Your problems in life, be they a hurt toe or deep anxiety, are well within His control and worthy of being brought before Him. Why? Because God loves you and whatever concerns you also concerns Him if you’re walking in His will.
Don’t ever think God is too big to hear your little requests. Yes, He’s the Lord of creation, but He’s also an intimate friend. Take your requests to Him and trust He’ll work every single one of them out for your good and His glory.
Bring your requests – big and small – to God, knowing he'll work them out for your good and his glory.
