Putting things under God's care

Can we really trust God all the time? Even in little things?

"If it means enough, you'll do it," a friend once said to me about a decision I needed to make. But I later thought about the remark from a spiritual point of view. It seemed to me that in trusting God it "means enough" when we're willing to listen to Him, to go to Him regularly in prayer, to strive to understand Him, to become convinced that His is the only wisdom.

We sometimes think that we cannot expect God to help us in the little, everyday things. I've heard it said by some, who seem to think of God as mortal (though mighty), that He is too busy handling world problems to care about or be aware of an individual's everyday needs. But God does care! He made man in His image and likeness, totally spiritual, and beheld His whole creation as good. See Gen. 1:26, 27, 31 . He means more to us than the most caring human parents because He is our divine Father-Mother, always with us. So if we cannot trust Him in the little things, how are we going to learn to trust Him in the big things?
