“It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it” - Luke 13:19

Everywhere about us in life, as we move along its byways, exist, distractions and danger. Some of these distractions are programmed to get us frustrated so we don’t achieve our dreams. We fall prey to these distractions because we are usually not sensitive and vigilant. To be sober and vigilant is a cardinal principle of life which we often neglect, apparently due to our inability to access the spiral effects of some of the things we neglect to do.

One mistake we often make is that we tend to neglect little things; treating them as immaterial thereby forgetting that little drops of water coming together make an ocean, and when these drops of water are separated, the ocean fizzles out. The word of God is telling us today to pay attention to details. And that if we take care of the little things we meet daily, the bigger things will be sorted out without efforts on our part. God himself pays attention to details; He counts all the stars in heaven and calls each by name. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Father in the name of Jesus Christ, I commit myself unto thy hands today for guidance and discipline. Grant me an opportunity to explore and to assimilate every finer and small detail of life. Lord, by thy spirit, I overcome the tragedies and catastrophes of today and in the days ahead. Father, I declare thy total authority and dominion over my entire activities and I attract success and victory from this day onwards. Amen.
