Why not start with a molehill?

Mushroom writes,
Sometimes it is not the demons that plague us so much as how we choose to deal with them. Too often our worldly solutions are worse than the problems they are intended to solve. Trusting in God brings rest. It shackles and gags the demon, for, in the end, the devil’s only weapons are fear and doubt.

I have a hard time understanding why I can trust God regarding the destiny of my eternal soul while worrying about the trivialities and inconveniences of my day-to-day physical existence.

It really ought to be that we turn our eyes to the Lord in small things in order to enlarge our trust in Him. Perhaps, though, we are apt to think we can handle the minor stuff ourselves. In some ways, it is easier and more comfortable for us. Still, why not start with a molehill?
