In preparation for an upcoming Beth Moore Bible Study on 1 & 2 Thessalonians, I decided to read Acts 16 and 17 to get a feel of the setting.
In doing so, Acts 17:26 caught my attention.
“and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation”. ACTS 17:26 NASB
Once in a while, something happens or something crosses my mind and I wonder how in the world I got where I am and why. Am I where I am supposed to be, doing what I am supposed to do? Then a Scripture like Acts 17:26 pops in the picture.This scripture made me realize that I am exactly where God made me to be!
I have entrusted Him with my life and in knowing that, I know that I was born at the right time, to the parents I was meant to have, in the land I was meant to love, to do what I was meant to do.
I couldn’t help but stop and praise God. I know that throughout my life I have made choices that were not in the will of God, and I have suffered through many of those choices. However, through it all, God has blessed me… more than I realize and definitely so much more than I ever deserved. And through it all, I know that I am exactly where I am supposed to be at this particular time doing what I am meant to do. Oh, the peace that brings to my soul!
Father, you have my life. You have my heart. Guide me so that I will always be where you want me to be, doing what you want me to do for Your Kingdom purposes. Amen.
