Nothing Too Big or Small
Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. —1 Peter 5:7
Sometimes in life there will be situations in which you will not have the resources or the ability to respond. There will be circumstances beyond your control. Tests will come up, and that is when you need to trust God.
When that unexpected bill arrives, and you wonder how you will ever pay it . . . when you have that crisis with your spouse, and you wonder how you will ever get through it . . . when a loved one dies unexpectedly, and you wonder how you will survive it, here is how: you are going to trust God. You must trust God. And God will come through for you.
Nothing is too big or too small for God to respond to. Sometimes we will minimize the struggles of others. They will tell us what they are dealing with and we will think, Come on. You know what I have gone through. I have suffered so much more than you. But know that thinking is not right. Their hardship may not seem significant to you, but it is significant to them. If it concerns them, it concerns God.
Each of us should come to God with our burdens and struggles. Is there something keeping you up at night? Is there something troubling you right now? Is there a need you have? Bring it to God. It is not too big, nor is it too small and insignificant. The psalmist wrote, “Hear my cry, O God; attend to my prayer. From the end of the earth I will cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I” (Psalm 61:1–2).
When faced with a need, no matter how large or small, we are to look to God to meet it.

Theology without apology!
There is nothing in this book that is not essential for a Christian to build a strong foundation on the Word of God. It is a book that you will come back to over and over again, as you brush up on that which really matters in life. It really does contain the essentials.
I want to send you your personal copy of Essentials in appreciation for your gift to Harvest this month. You can take the biblical doctrine you find in it’s pages and run with it and live it. I would describe Essentials as theology without apology.
You can have your own copy of Essentials in appreciation for your gift to Harvest Ministries this month.
