And they brought that which Moses commanded before the tabernacle of the congregation: and all the congregation drew near and stood before the LORD. And Moses said, This is the thing which the LORD commanded that ye should do.
In Leviticus 9:7–22, we see the procedure that was to be followed by the priests in offering a sacrifice. This passage is studied by Jewish scholars at great length because it’s the only time the procedure of a sacrifice is seen. Why does the Lord go into such detail? Why does He take almost an entire chapter to describe this procedure? Because He cares about the details of how He is to be worshiped, just as He cares about the details of how we are to live. Our God is a God of incredible order. Not only does the book of Leviticus attest to this, but His fingerprint can be seen on even the most minute aspect of nature, His concern over each sparrow, His awareness of each hair (Matthew 10:29–30).
The story is told of a lady who approached G. Campbell Morgan with a particular question.
“Why don’t you ask the Lord about that?” he asked.
“Oh, it’s too small a detail for the Lord,” she replied.
“Tell me, madam,” he countered, “what in your life is big to the Lord?”
Pray about everything, dear saint. Because nothing is big to God, nothing is too small for Him.
