1 Corinthians 7:17 “Each of you should continue to live in whatever situation the Lord has placed you, and remain as you were when God first called you. This is my rule for all the churches.” ~NLT
“Why am I here?” “Lord, I’m ready for your blessings, where are they?” “Why am I at this job? I thought you had something better for me.” It is amazing how fear comes over us when we cannot see the miracle. When we cannot see the blessing or success, as we call it, we get frustrated with God.
All along, God has it all worked out. He will lead you to the right place and put you in the right position where he will perform his miracle through you. And if you think you are the only one of His children that was confused about your position, you are sadly mistaken.
How do you think the Israelites felt when God brought them to the Red Sea with Pharaoh right behind them. They couldn't see success either. But let’s not be like them and complain because of what we cannot see. Instead let us embrace our trust in God that He has already set us up for success! Like Moses, we should just stand, raise our hands in praise and watch our problems divide and provide a path for us to our victory.
The text says, “...Each of you should continue to live in whatever situation the Lord has placed you…” This is written because we won’t know and don’t have to know what God’s plan is for us. Because God only has good plans for us, not disaster, (Jeremiah 29:11).
So today, thank God for what He has done and all He is going to do in the name of His Son Jesus Christ! When God is ready, He will show us the way! He is the Light In the Darkness! It is on us to build our relationship with Him so that we may hear Him more clearly for our direction. And in this we can allow ourselves to live righteously. And let that righteousness flow in our hearts and minds.
May God continue to protect, guide and heal you on your journey in Jesus’ name.
