From Dear Jesus by Sarah Young
I am a God of both intricate detail and overflowing abundance. When you entrust the details of your life to Me, you are surprised by how thoroughly I answer your petitions.
I rejoice in Your overflowing abundance! Time after time I have come to You for Life, and You have provided plentifully. It amazes me that One so immeasurably great would care about the tiny details of my life.
Beloved, My infinite abundance enables Me to be attentive to every bit of your life. Actually, small matters can lead to major consequences, so it’s wise to entrust to Me even things that seem unimportant. One way of doing this is through seeking to please Me in every aspect of your life. This changes your perspective and invites Me into all your moments. When you go through a day desiring to please Me, feelings of emptiness give way to abundant fullness. Things around you seem brighter, because the Light of My Presence casts a gentle glow on them. Your efforts to please Me draw us closer and put you in sync with My will. Thus connected with Me, you can enjoy sharing My pleasant, comfortable yoke and My light, easily borne burden.
You receive many blessings through entrusting the details of your life to Me. When you do so, I surprise you in several ways: I answer your prayers bountifully, and I awaken your heart to the radiant pleasure of living in union with Me. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;
I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.
—John 10:10 NASB
So we make it our goal to please him, whether we are at home in the body or away from it.
—2 Corinthians 5:9
You are my lamp, O LORD; the Lord turns my darkness into light.
—2 Samuel 22:29
For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good—not harsh, hard, sharp or pressing, but comfortable, gracious and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne.
—Matthew 11:30 AMP
