Ever wonder why your life looks the way it does?
“Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him.” -1 Corinthians 7:17a
God does not get taken by surprise.
He does not get distracted, look up and see one of His children in some circumstance and exclaim, “Oh no! How did THIS happen?!”
There is always a strong sense in Scripture that we are indeed responsible for our own choices, but at the same time, Paul reminds us that there is a reason we are in the place we are today.
That job or family or location or state of wandering may not be our preference, but God has a purpose in it for His glory and our good.
Our task is to be faithful today, and let Him take care of tomorrow.
