Is God interested in the small details of your life?
You bet He is!
My husband had misplaced a $100 bill. The night before he lost the 100 dollars he had taken money out of his pocket while sitting in his truck to pay someone his earnings. He noticed he had $100 less in his wallet than he had anticipated. He asked the man whom he had paid if he had overpaid him $100 and the answer was “no.” Not knowing what happened to the money he tried to figure it out, but did not come to any conclusion. He was very tired and just went to bed hoping it would somehow show up somewhere.
This morning he went to his truck… and there was the $100 bill lying on the side-rail of his truck waiting for its rightful owner to claim it. One wisp of wind would have blown it away onto the street. That’s where we live, with a God Who so loves us and looks after us in the smallest details of our life.
He is interested in the color we pick for our furniture, the dogs we pick for our pets or the clothes we have on our back. It is all part of Him. And the more we come to realize that, the more intimate our walk with Him becomes. I love it!
Even when you were in your mother’s womb He designed your fingerprints and the freckles on your nose. Amazing. You’ve got to love Him. He is so wonderful.
Today I had this “pull” to go to this carport sale, and sure enough, the lady had something I have wanted for some time– a brand new apple peeler in the original box. It cores and peels apples at the same time so you can make great applesauce, especially when you can pick the apples for free… but I’m not telling you where, for that is my secret. The lady at the carport sale asked me to pay $2.00 for the apple corer, but when I hesitated, she told me I could have it for $1.00. However, I gave her what she had originally asked for–$2.00. I just felt God saying to be kind to her. They are around $25.00 if you have to buy one in the store.
Hey, after all, God is my Dad and He looks after me in every sense of the way. He is your Dad too, and wants to love you and give you all you need– the ability for you to do what you need to do and to be what He wants you to be, just like Him!
Here we have a picture drawn by a very young prophetic artist, and I believe the Lord is saying, “Today I am celebrating you and showering you with balloons of blessings, small and big balloons. You can be sure that these balloons will not pop, break or hurt you: they are gifts from Me to you. I will shower My gifts of love on you to energize and refresh you, for you have been a weary traveler that needs My blessings and rains of refreshment. You will never be disappointed in Me when you learn to trust Me.”

Drawn by God
This devotional book has 52 short chapters and 176 pages. Each chapter starts with a question, has a biblical background scripture that is appropriate for the title of the chapter and then discusses the answer to that query through the eyes of the author’s vision of God. The chapter ends with a prophetic word from Jesus’ heart saying “I hear Jesus say…” Every chapter ends with a drawing by the author or an inspired artist who knows Jesus intimately.
The book will make you hungry to know more of Who God is and answers questions like, “Does He really care about the small stuff in my life? How can I give Him first place when I feel like I am losing it and I feel He does not love me anymore? Do we need conflict in our life? What about generational blessings? How far will He go with me? What about impossible situations? How do I ever attain to living a life that is bathed in God’s rest?”
The book also shares personal examples of how the author faced tremendous difficulties in her own life. How in her youth during the war in Holland they were hiding Jews right under the nose of the Nazis who occupied a castle next door. The pain she experienced in her broken youth when she felt like no-one even realized she was around. How God became her Father and her Mother when she herself was just a young mother, longing to be free from much bondage.
The book is based on spontaneous prophetic art and how God wants to speak to each one of us not only through His precious word, but through anything that comes our way
Spontaneous Prophetic art is practiced in some churches where the artist steps forward as the worship starts and asks God for a spontaneous picture for the congregation. After the worship, the artist explains the meaning of the picture and shares what she or he senses God wants to say to the people at that point in time.
Most of us have heard the maxim, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” We may try a hundred word-related ways to comprehend a truth, but somehow, pictures engrave the heart. When the picture matches the words well, the reader is more deeply impacted.
Each devotional highlights an aspect of life – a challenge, a question, an irritation, a potential decision – and offers biblical truths in a practical, encouraging voice. See sight panel how to obtain this reviving book. Orders outside the USA pleas pay an extra $5 for shipping by air.
