where are you…?

Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him.

1Corinthians 7:17 ESV

God knows where you are…

He knows where you were when He called you…

It is where He placed you in the first place…

And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place, that they should seek God, and perhaps feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us…

Acts 17:26-27 ESV

And I wonder at this… as in some ways I so want the place He’s set me… the place I was when He called me… to change…

I want a different place… from where I am…

I find it both comforting and maddening… to hear Him say… I assigned you this life… this is what I called you to…

He knows where we are when He calls us… when He captures our lives with His love… and it’s all for His purpose… and glory…

Which is what we who are His most desire… or should…

Whether you are in the perfect place… or a difficult place… He knows…

It’s the place He assigned you… to work good for His glory…

So brothers, in whatever condition each was called, there let him remain with God.

1Corinthians 7:24 ESV

Oh…! Do you see that…?

…whatever condition… let him remain… with God

Where you are… is where God is…

Staying where you are when He called you… is where He is…

And where He is… anything is possible…!

“… Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. …” –Jesus

John 15:4 NIV

Where are you…?

Right where He wants you… with Him… bearing fruit for His glory…

Amen…
