I was forced to ask the same thing this morning as I was just awestruck at God’s working in my life.
Who am I that you are mindful of me?
So when I stepped out of my house this morning, determined to walk to my daughter’s school to deliver something, I had made up my mind that this would be my exercise today. I would go at my own pace, walking there and back.
But I had been walking for just over 5 minutes when a vehicle I did not recognize drove past me, stopped, then slowly reversed toward me. The ride took me straight to the school.The gentleman indicated that God must have sent him this way today as he doesn’t usually take this road, but he had been so deep in thought that he drove past his turn-off.
I could only say, “He must have. God is good!”
As I got out of the vehicle, thinking I’d have to walk through the school to find my daughter, she exited the building to stand directly alongside the car.
Another problem solved.
Five minutes later, I see a friend from church waiting in her car at the school crossing; she indicated, when I inquired, that she was going in the opposite direction and we waved each other off.Not two minutes later someone indicated that she was calling out to me; she’d stopped and wanted to know whether I was heading home. When I said yes I was, she said, “Come, let me take you!” She was already late for work, but took the time to go out of her way to carry me home.
Friends, I had made up my mind, but God had other plans.
I was back home about 20 minutes after I’d left.
I hadn’t even prayed to God to send me rides, but He knew how much of an inconvenience this would have been in light of the plans I had made for my morning. And although I hadn’t asked Him to deal with it, God took care of my needs anyway.
He reminds us in Isaiah 65:24 (GNT), “Even before they finish praying to me, I will answer their prayers.”
Many times we try to handle certain things ourselves because we figure that we shouldn’t bother the BIG God with our LITTLE problems. But God knows each and every one of us, and He is interested in our situations.
He says in Isaiah 49: 16 (GNT), “I have written your name on the palms of my hands.” That’s how important you are to Him.
Today, you too can say with me, “I am YOUR creation and YOU care about the seemingly-small things in my life – thank you Lord.”
