Did you ever stop and think that God put you in the exact spot He wants you? From the beginning of time, He knew you. God chose what era you should live in. He could’ve selected Abraham’s time, the Middle Ages, the Protestant Reformation, Revolutionary America, or the Civil War, but He decided to place you in modern-day history.
God could’ve located you in Africa or Russia or India, but He situated most of you reading this devotion in the United States. This didn’t happen by chance. God wants us to live in a time and place that uniquely fits each of us. He wants us to be at the best possible advantage to seek and serve Him.
Our times are in His hands. Let’s use every moment to draw nearer to God, serving Him with our whole hearts.
“From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; 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 perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.” Acts 17: 26.
Dear Lord, my mind can barely comprehend Your knowledge and power. Thank You for choosing to place me in the country, the state, and into the family where you put me. Allow me to fruitfully serve You right where I am. Amen.

I totally and unequivically agree with this!
I have NO doubt I am where God wants me “for such a time as this.”
God called me to write for this time and age – books He’s laying on my heart and mind.
I praise Him for caring enough for me to see me through the obstacles and over the ditches
satan puts in my way as I continue to write for Him.
Joy, what confidence you have as you walk through this life accomplishing just what the Lord created you to do.
I am thankful God placed me exactly where He wants me to be. His plan is always best. I have the opportunity to learn from others and to share His love with others.
