A Benediction for the Week

Where you are in life is not a mistake. God has you there for a reason.

It’s easy to complain and look for a way out of what you feel is a bad situation. It’s easy to want to quit.

But it’s better to look for how God is using this present circumstance to refine you and mold you and shape you and make you more like Jesus.

It’s easy to blame everyone else for your current predicament.

But it’s better to look for the people God has placed in your path as those who need to see God’s love exhibited through you. They need to see what you profess to believe lived out in real time.

The best part is that God never asks you to be anywhere or do anything unless He first empowers you to be there and do it. That’s where the Holy Spirit comes in. That’s where your willingness and availability meet God’s opportunity and a blessing is born.
