Seasonal Changes: Places
From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem . . . .
According to the 2011 U.S. Census, a typical American moves his place of residence 11.7 times in his lifetime—about once every seven years. But when it comes to changing our “place,” there is more than geography to consider.
Our life consists of many different “places”: work, recreation, relationships, education—even mental, spiritual, or emotional places (“I’m in a really great place right now!”). “Place” is one of those parts of life that needs to be always before the Lord for His confirmation or correction. God may want us to serve or help someone which will require us to change our place. Or He may want us to leave a place that is having a negative impact on our life. He may even want us to remain there and be an agent of godly change in a place that doesn’t acknowledge Him. Christ made His disciples into apostles by sending them from where they were into the world (Matthew 28:19-20). We should be ready for Him to change our place in life as well.
Where are you this fall—physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally? Ask God to confirm where you are or give you grace to change if needed.
The middle of the road is a poor place to walk. It is a poor place to drive. It is a poor place to live.
Luke 9 – 12
