God of the small stuff (God Whispers-13)

At times when God speaks, it’s a still small voice…sometimes even a whisper. And it’s at times like these that He invites us to be still and know that He is God (Psalms 46:10).
Join me as I share with you 31 God Whispers…i.e. 31 Promises from the Word of God that sustain, strengthen and encourage me on my journey to be the Mommy and Wife God wants me to be.


God of the small stuff ( Day 13)


And I have led you forty years in the wilderness. Your clothes have not worn out on you, and your sandals have not worn out on your feet.

(Deuteronomy 29:5)


Wear your best footwear for 40 days in a row, day in and day out and see what will happen. I’m sure you will find some fraying threads at the ends, a burnt out sole perhaps?

Here we are talking about the state of footwear after 40 days of consistent use, can you imagine the state after 40 weeks…40 months? Oh boy!

The Israelites trudged through the wilderness with sandals…not high tech Nikes…plain old sandals and the Bible says God took them through 40 years in the same sandals and they NEVER wore out. The Bible even records that the clothes they wore didn’t wear out on them either.

40 years!


Recording this piece of information may not mean anything to some people but to me this verse speaks volumes.
It shows the heart of God for His Children. Everything concerning them was important for Him…even the shoes and the clothes they wore.

It tells me that everything concerning me IS important for Him. He cares about the small stuff.


You may not know what tomorrow holds for you but rest assured that if you trust your life into the Hands of our Heavenly Father He will take care of EVERYTHING concerning you…the big stuff AND the small stuff.



I pray that you will find comfort, encouragement and hope as you lean close to listen to God’s Whisper for your situation today.

Be blessed!



A big thank you to The Nester for triggering off a desire within me to do this…
I’m excited to see what God will do through this!

    That is a verse that screams volumes ! Thank you for the reminder
    I had made a trip to Jordan and what hit me while traveling in an air-conditioned bus through the desert was how did the Israelites manage to ‘weather’ this out on foot for forty years…
    God bless you for your insights and encouragement in your daily posts..
