The Royal Wedding is just around the corner. Prince "Will" and the soon-to-be HRH "Kate" are center stage and around them swirl the details. There are television accounts galore explaining the details surrounding this momentous occasion for the Brits and many of us too! From time schedules to security issues to food preparation - all carry intricate details full of land mines that must be taken care of and negotiated through. ..but that's what they do!
Then I must decide which Royal coverage to watch. Should I tune in for the display of pagentry in real time (1:00 a.m. tomorrow morning) or DVR is to watch when I get up, or wait and watch it with friends and family later in the day? And which television station will carry the best coverage or should I go on line to watch . . . oh the royal details!
Battling through the unavoidable details of life is also a daunting task. These words from our Prince of Peace have consistently kept me from getting lost in the otherwise derailing and defeating details . . .
"The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10 KJV
So is the devil really in the details? Not if we abide in the words of our Prince of Peace . . . because He is IN every detail of our lives. Recently our daughter penned these words of testimony that capture this simple truth ...
"My God will work out all the details. That's what He does."
PRAYER: Today, Lord, I leave all of the details that seem to derail me in your hands knowing that you are there to handle them. Thank you, In Jesus Name, Amen.
Now we can say with confidence, "God began doing a good work in me, and I am sure he will continue it until it is finished ..." (from Philippians 1:6 NCV)
Blessings . . . as you allow the Prince of Peace to live in your details.
