Faithfulness in Little Things

Dear Reader,

We have been reading through the Pentateuch. We are in Deuteronomy at this point. Moses is speaking to the Israelites, knowing he is dying soon and they will go into the promised land without him. He recounts all that God has done for them. In the part we read last night he reminds them how God helped them defeat the kings Og and Sihon.

We often speak of how if we are faithful in little things then God will give us big things to do too. But as we were going through Deuteronomy I was thinking how what Moses is saying to the people at this point is that God has been faithful to them in smaller things defeating these two kings) and therefore they can trust Him with the bigger things (defeating all the Canaanites and claiming their land).

It works the other way too. Sometimes God has already done big things for us (think the plagues in Egypt and getting the Israelites across the Red Sea) and yet we fail to trust Him will littler things (think providing water and food in the desert). We tend to be pretty hard on the Israelites but I think we are not so very different. So when we are faced with something that seems to overwhelm us, whether big or little, one of the best things to do is just to remember God’s past faithfulness. His character is unchanging. He has provided for His people in the past and will continue to do so. Where is that verse that says that He who has provided salvation for us in Christ will surely provide all things?

    • Yes, that’s it. “He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?” I tried a quick search on the key words (or what I thought they were) but couldn’t come up with it. Thanks

  2. […] the topic of God being faithful to us in little things, I found two things this week that I had lost. Both are really minor but they were nagging at me. […]
