Act Where You Are

Do you sometimes wonder what God is doing in your life? Have you looked at your situation from God’s perspective? Have you asked what God wants you to do where He has put you?

God has a plan for each one of us. Our part is to go where He wants us to go and do what He wants us to do. If we know we have gone where He wants us to go, we must then do what He wants us to do. That can be where the rub is, can’t it?

Sometimes we don’t know what God wants us to do. Sometimes it may be a hard thing we don’t want to do. That’s when we balk. That’s when we procrastinate. That’s when we may outright refuse.

We might want to take a look at Esther as an example of how to do the hard thing. No, she didn’t really want to do it. She faced potential death. She could have been banished. But she took on the task of doing what needed to be done in the face of it.

We must remember that God will see us through the task He puts before us. He will provide what we need to complete it. When we trust God to get us through it, He provides us with strength, courage, wisdom, and any other resources we need.

So, what has God put before you to do? Are you willing to trust Him to carry you through it? How do you know He hasn’t put you where you are to carry out the hard task before you?

I pray we all take on the tasks God puts before us. I pray we trust Him to provide what we need to complete the task. I pray each one of us asks God to reveal what He wants us to do. Do want God wants you to do. Trust Him. Be courageous. God has put you right where He wants you. Act where you are.

Esther 4:14b “And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
