Nothing is Insignificant to God!

Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? 

He who brings out the starry host one by one, 
and calls them each by name. 
Because of his great power and mighty strength, 
not one of them is missing. 
(Is 40:26, emphasis added)

Look up at the sky on a clear night out in the country—it’s hard not to believe that a very BIG and powerful Being created all this.

Yet our Creator knows and cares about the minutest details of our lives.


From the tiniest detail of a flower to the vastness of the oceans, from the #hairs on our head to the one we will marry, and everything in between—our God is aware and cares.

No event or deed is insignificant to God

He is orchestrating so many things behind the scenes it is staggering!

Consider the countless myriad of actions, thoughts, and interactions with other people in just one person’s life—like yours (see Ps 139:16-18). Then multiply that by all the people who have ever lived, are living, or will live.

If you think about that too long and you’re bound to get a headache. Our finite minds are not capable of such endless possibilities. Not so for our infinite God!

It’s no wonder that we often don’t understand what God is doing. We simply cannot keep up with all that God is coordinating behind the curtain of tangibility. He is indeed working out all things together for good to those who love Him (Rom 8:28).

Nothing God Does IN Us is Insignificant

From the smallest understanding of one of His freeing truths to a profound life-altering revelation (like our salvation)—each specific truth is important in the big scheme of things. Each helping us to:

  • Draw closer to Him
  • See the helplessness of our condition
  • See how ugly and depraved we are next to a holy pure God
  • Gain victory over temptation
  • Have hope for a better future

Each helping us to know our Creator.  He wants to be known in an intimate and personal way.

Nothing God Does THROUGH Us is Insignificant

From doing mundane tasks, being kind to a stranger to sharing the Gospel with a lost soul so they can be eternally saved—each is an important detail in His overall plan.

No Problem is Too Small or Too Big for God

From losing some sleep to losing a loved one—all of them matter to God and are equally easy for Him to handle (Jer 32:17). God is not too busy for even the tiniest of issues. Remember—He is limitless in all areas, including time.

If your problem seems too big, then God is too small in your eyes.

If your problem seems too small to “bother” God, then your concept of God is wrong. You don’t believe in His “infinitude” or His genuine care for you.

Who is like the Lord our God, the One who sits enthroned on high,
who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth?
(Ps 113:5-6).

Our Big God willingly stooped down. He sent Jesus, who temporarily set aside His “Bigness” so He could rescue us from an eternity in hell (Phil 2:6-8).

So my friend, the next time you look at the stars, remember that your BIG God thinks you are more significant than all of them put together! Enough to die for you!

O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
When I consider your heavens,

the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him,
the son of man that you care for him? 
(Ps 8:1, 3-4)
