God in the trifles

Spurgeon said, “Blessed is that man who seeth God in trifles! It is there that it is the hardest to see him; but he who believes that God is there, may go from the little providence up to the God of providence.” [C. H. Spurgeon, The New Park Street Pulpit (Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, 1994 reprint of 1855 original) 1:31]

Do you see God in trifles? Do you look for him in the details of your day?

I don't see the trifles with God nearly enough.

But I don't think that I could see God in the inattentiveness of one of my (usually attentive) students or in the slowness of the old driver in front of me or in the clogging of my bathtub drain.
