“The God who made the world and everything in it…gives all men life and breath and everything else…and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us”. (Acts 17:24-27)
Ever wonder why you are where you are? I mean you could be anywhere on google maps. Yet here you are. You live in a specific time and in a specific place. Sometimes we think if we just lived somewhere else we would be much happier but the problem holds true, “wherever you go-there you are”. God’s placed me here in his grace and wisdom that I might seek him and become more like him.
Everything that I need is right here. All the ingredients are in place. The seasoning is just right. As long as I don’t pull myself out of the oven prematurely this is going to turn out mighty tasty. In fact it will be “slap your mama good”. Even the parts that seem extremely painful or futile are perfectly placed in my life. Without it who knows where I’d be. I thank the sovereign creator for making me and putting me here in his infinite wisdom. I know the meaning lies in seeking after him with all my heart.
