The Smallest Trifles

(Charles Spurgeon)

“In Him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will.” Ephesians 1:11

It is most important for us to learn that the smallest trifles are as much arranged by the God of Providence–as the most momentous events!

He who counts the stars–has also numbered the hairs of our heads!

Our lives and deaths are predestined–but so, also, are our sitting down and our rising up.

I believe that every particle of dust that dances in the sunbeam, does not move an atom more or less than God wishes.

I believe that every particle of spray that dashes against the steamboat has its ordained orbit, as well as the sun in the heavens.

I believe that the chaff from the hand of the winnower–is as much steered by God, as the starsin their course.

The creeping of an aphid over the rosebush–is as much fixed as the march of the devastating pestilence.

The fall of a leaf from a poplar tree–is as fully ordained as the tumbling of an avalanche!
