Unlike the dandelion, which is at the mercy of the wind, the committed Christian finds purpose and stability and security in God's unique plan for his/her life. God is in the details, and His all-seeing eyes and His infinite wisdom leave nothing to chance. Winds, both the cooling breezes and the stormy gales are part of life, but even they obey His voice. He rules the universe, but He's also concerned about the "little" things in my life! That's blessed assurance!
The following prayer/praise written by Ruth Meyers in her book 31 Days of Praise is one that I return to again and again:
I praise You for Your sovereignty over the details. With You, nothing is accidental, nothing is incidental, and no experience is wasted. You hold in Your power my breath of life and all my destiny. And every trial that You allow to happen is a platform on which You reveal Yourself, showing Your love and power, both to me and to others looking on. Thank you that I can move into the future nondefensively, with hands outstretched to whatever lies ahead, for You hold the future and You will always be with me, even to my old age . . . and through all eternity.
