God Cares About All Aspects of Your Life

This week we finished Leviticus. There are lists of rules for the Israelites to follow in chapters 16-27. These rules include how to avoid disease, what to do when a woman is on her monthly cycle, how to treat others, fidelity, who one can marry, how the priest is wear his hair and the clothes he is to wear. He reviews the 10 commandments, and talks about the different “feasts.”

It is easy to get bogged down while reading the book of rules. Something we can glean from the reading is that God wants to be involved with all aspects of our lives both big and small.

I think this important to remember when we pray to the LORD. Some people may feel that what is in their heart to pray about is too small, and the LORD would not want to hear about the issue. This is untrue. God wants us to pray about all things, big and small. Phillipians 4:6-7 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17 says, “Pray without ceasing.” 1 John 5:14-15 says, “And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.”

Have you ever hesitated to pray for something because you thought it was not significant enough for God. That he was too busy answering more important prayers. God wants you to pray about everything. Nothing is too insignificant.

Next week we will read Numbers 1-12.

Have a blessed week!
