Into the Details

Today is the 29th day of my 90 Day Bible Reading Journey.  So far, it’s been really great and I’m on track to complete the Bible in the 90 days.  I’ve always had a daily time with the Lord, but this is the first time that I’ve had a structured Bible reading schedule.  Today I read the first nine chapters of 1 Chronicles.  At first glance, this part of God’s Word might seem really boring and simply a listing of the names of people I’ve never met.  But as I read it, I began to have two thoughts:

1. God’s into the details      2. Everyone matters to God

This portion of Scripture takes great pains to make sure that there’s a clear lineage of people from Adam all the way through the generations to ultimately link to our Savior, Jesus Christ.  These details remind me that God is Sovereign and has a plan for his people.  It also reminds me that if God cares enough the mention even the random people that aren’t key players in scripture, then he cares enough to know me and, “even the very hairs on [my] head are all numbered.” (Matthew 10:30)
