Our youth leader at church says God has a specific plan for each of us, but I have a hard time believing it. Why would God worry about every little detail of my life, when He has much bigger things to take care of?


I know it’s hard to imagine how God could be concerned about every detail of our lives—but He is! Jesus said, “Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows” (Luke 12:6-7).

You see, the real question is this: How big is God? The Bible says God isn’t just concerned about big things (like running the universe). Instead, God is so great that He is concerned about even the smallest and most insignificant things. After all, He who put the stars in space also created the smallest subatomic particle and the tiniest microbe. As the Bible says, “By him (Christ) all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible” (Colossians 1:16).

But God wants you to know an even greater truth: The reason He has a specific plan for your life is because He loves you. If God didn’t care about you … or if He were too busy to bother with you … then you would be right. But God does care about you!

How do we know this? We know it because God came down to this earth in the person of Jesus Christ, who gave His life so we could be with Him in Heaven forever. My prayer is that you will turn to Him and accept the gift He offers you—the gift of His salvation. Then make it your goal to know His will—and do it.

    I was saved at the age of 9 at a Billy Graham crusade in Birmingham, Alabama. I am now 53 years old. I remember it like it was yesterday. My brother Mike was attending Southeastern Bible College at the time. He took me there that night. I sat by myself because my brother was busy, I remember Mr.Graham giving the call to come up and accept Christ, I remember being taken by the hand and heading up front, yet when I got up there I was alone. So I have always believed that was Jesus holding my hand. I just wanted to say Thank you for that, and God bless you.

    My faith and believe in GOD is no question. I do and its so true that GOD has a plan and purpose to each and everyone in this earth. I can’t explain the blessings that GOD has for me while I raise my son. Its marvellous when you woke up and read your Bible and prayed and when you’re finished you feel the present of GOD in our house in your life too. No words to explain how GOD lead me and my son all along and we will be serving HIM till the day HE calls us to HIS HOME that HE went and prepared for us. May the blessings of GOD be with everyone that reads all the emails. God Bless everyone.
