TODAY'S WORD FOR TODAY
Let God Show You Where to Go
‘…Leave…go to the land I will show you.’Genesis 12:1 NIV
Where you are matters. You can’t grow bananas in Alaska, but you can grow them in Jamaica. What’s the point? Simply this: sometimes you need to change your location in order to succeed in what God’s called you to do. Look at the life of Elijah. ‘The word of the Lord came to him, saying, “Get away from here and turn eastward, and hide by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan. And it will be that you shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there”’ (1 Kings 17:2-4 NKJV). Ravens normally don’t deliver food, they eat it. But when you do what God tells you and go where He sends you, you move from the natural realm to the supernatural one. God not only has a plan for your life, He has a place for it. Yes, you must have the right strategy, but you must also be in the right spot. ‘…I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go’ (Isaiah 48:17 NIV). If your heart’s desire is to honour God in all things, He will show you the best location to succeed in. Indeed, He will go ahead of you and rearrange circumstances to your advantage. He did it for Abraham. ‘By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going’ (Hebrews 11:8 NIV). Ask God, and He will show you where to go.
