KNOWING OUR PLACE
God has designed you to fit in a particular place at a specified time with His plan and purpose in mind. He will shape and mold you. He will put the right circumstance before you and place the right people in your life. Trust that He knows exactly what you need and when you need it. We cannot always see what God is trying to accomplish but we must believe that it is always for our good and for the good of others. We are a part of a big picture and although we cannot see the completed picture, we need to know we are a big part of it. Each one of us was created to fit and have a purpose and meaning in the big picture. “Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good” (Gen. 1:31).
PRAYER FOR TODAY
Look at how wonderfully the earth was created. Mountains, streams, valleys, sunshine, snow, rain, trees—the list goes on and on. By themselves, they are of some importance, but together they are a thing of wonder and amazement. Thank You, Lord, for the opportunity to see, feel, hear, and experience all You have created.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
For it was by Him that all things (including us) were created. (Col. 1:16)
