I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. (Jeremiah 29:11 MSG)
Have you ever lost anything significant in your lives?
Last week I was in a supermarket and suddenly heard a lady screaming her 2 year old son’s name. She was frantically running every where looking for her son. All the others were just standing and watching her desperation in finding her son. Finally she found her son.
Many a times in the business of our lives we have lost ourselves. We get away from the position that God has placed us. We are like this lady in the supermarket, nobody listens or bothers to hear the screams that comes within our souls.
Are we in the position that God has placed us or have we wandered away? When God asked Adam, “where are you” in the garden of Eden, He was asking where are you in position to yourself that I planted you.
“Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? (Luke 15:8 NKJV)
Here we read about the woman who lost a silver coin and how she finds it back.
First she lights up the candle, then sweeps and finally search. It is the word of God that we need to light up first. When the word of God is shone in our hearts it shows us what we have lost. Then we can sweep away all that is not fitting the plan of God. Finally as we seek HIM diligently we find our position to fit His plan.
Our God is a God of order. He knows what He is doing. He starts with disorder.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. (Genesis 1:1, 2 NKJV)
When there is disorder, He sends His word and makes it in order. The word always brings us back to our position.
His ways are not our ways, His thoughts are not our thoughts, so stop resisting and position yourself to the place where God has placed you. You may not understand and know the things happening in your life, but all you need to know is “The same God who started a good work in you, is the same God who will finish and accomplish it. He is the Alpha and Omega. He is committed to see you placed in your position for His purpose.
You are His beloved and He has fashioned you. When He designs, you will stand any type of storm or pressure and you will be able to soar high above everything.
You are unique and a designers choice. Be positioned to fit His plan.
