Seeing God in Everything
Dr. Jim Denison
Thesis: God is in every detail of our lives
Problem: we don’t know how to find him when we need him
Answer: look for him in small, hard, physical, and coincidental places
Persuade: to see God in every event of your life today
A little girl went to church, leaving her invalid father at home. In his anger and frustration he wrote on a piece of paper the letters, GODISNOWHERE. She came home, saw the sign, smiled, and said out loud, “God is now here!” And he is.
As you hurt, God hurts with you. And he promises you his presence, help, and hope. Every day. This day.
Where do you go when you need to hear from God? When you’re facing a decision, or a problem, or a pain. When it seems that the heavens are silent and prayer is unanswered?
Listen to the perplexed poet:
“My words fly up, my thoughts remain below;
Words without thoughts never to heaven go.”
How can you find God every day, all day? Esther 2 tells us.
God turns small things into big things (2.1)
