A Place Called There

God puts you where God needs you. You are where you are supposed to be. The job you are doing may not be any easier on account of this, indeed it may be harder, even more urgent, but now you are centered, focused, clear. So this is where I am supposed to be. I always thought I was supposed to be somewhere else, doing something else, being someone else. But I realize now that I was mistaken. This does not mean that I can’t or will not be doing something else. Just right now, I am where God wants me.   Lawrence Kushner

Are you “there”? Have you reached that place in your life where you can honestly say, “I am in the will of God.

If you are, let me encourage you to stay there. Notice that when Elijah arrived at Cherith, the Bible says that he “dwelt” there. That word means “to live, or to set up housekeeping”. Elijah went “there” to stay “there” until orders came to go somewhere else! So, if you are “there” just stay there!

But, if you have never arrived “there” and you know that you are somehow missing out on God’s best for you because you aren’t “there”, let me invite you to come before the Lord, to get before Him and ask Him to show you where “there” is. When He shows you where“there” is, get “there” and stay “there”!

Some get “there” and they see the Lord move in power and glory. They get to see the miracles and they see the Lord move in remarkable ways. Others never arrive “there” and they wonder why they don’t see the Lord move in their lives in power and glory. The secret to seeing His glory and experiencing His best is no secret at all. All it requires is getting “there”! Are you “there”?

  1. Yes! It’s hard to just sit still sometimes, isn’t it? But in that stillness; in that “there” as you said, He can abide in you as you abide in Him “there” in worshipful obedience. Love this!
