About two years ago I awoke in the middle of the night to 3:16. Not sure what 3:16 verse, so after careful consideration, I determined I needed to look up and write down each and every 3:16 verse in the Bible. It was a very eye opening self-study.
Recently I’ve become friends with Kamryn Adams, an author, a fellow blogger, podcaster, life coach, just to name a few things this woman does. https://shinetyc.com We have a common verse of Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” We are now 413 pen pals.
Following the same method as before, I looked up and wrote down all the 4:13 verses in the Bible and mailed her a copy. In doing so I found one verse that I thought was particularly funny at the time. “When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, and my scrolls, especially the parchments.” (2 Tim. 4:13 [NIV])
I could not stop thinking about this verse and turning it over in my soul. From my 3:16 search, I know 2 Tim. 3:16 [NIV] states, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.”
If the above verse about Paul’s cloak and books is God-breathed, what does it teach us?
I believe it shows us God even cares about the small details of our daily lives. Nothing is too insignificant to our God who wants a deep, intimate, daily relationship with us. One where we can talk to Him about not just our big concerns, but the small things too. He loves us so much and cares about our whole life. (Yes, John 3:16 fits here.)
So don’t be afraid to talk to Him about absolutely everything going on in your day, because you will see it is all important to Him. He does care about your details just as much as He cares about the details of running the whole universe. We are just that important to Him.
Isn’t that just like our loving God?
