God is interested in details, that's for sure. Consider the minute details of many things that he has included in his Word, especially in the Old Testament books. Some of us skip through these to more interesting portions. Reading the book of Ezra this day, I noticed the author writing about the number of silver and gold articles that were brought back to Jerusalem by them who were released from captivity. I don't think anyone would have objected if the author had just mentioned that the gold and silver articles that Nebuchadnezzar had taken from the temple in Jerusalem were brought back. But God, the Holy Spirit inspired the writer to mention the numbers.
This was the inventory: gold dishes 30, silver dishes 1,000, silver pans 29, gold bowls 30, matching silver bowls 410, other articles 1,000. In all, there were 5,400 articles of gold and of silver. Sheshbazzar brought all these along when the exiles came up from Babylon to Jerusalem.
God is interested in the details of our lives too. Things that people may consider trivial are important to him. Not only the big matters, we can take our smallest issues to our Lord....He will hear...he will care.....that's for sure.
