I sometimes forget that God can use us to serve Him where ever we are.
You go nowhere by accident!
Remember, you go nowhere by accident.
Where ever you go, God is sending you.
Where ever you are, God has put you there.
He has a purpose in your being there.
Jesus Christ Who lives inside of you has
Something He wants to do through you right where you are.
Believe this and go in the grace and peace
Of the Lord Jesus Christ to love and serve
God and your fellow man now and forever more. Amen
Being in prison is not at the top of anyone's favorite place to go but being there brought Chuck Colson into God's kingdom. His influence brought about several ministries
serving the needs of people in prison as well as their families.
God puts people in the right place at the right time to bring about His plan. Esther, Ruth, Moses, etc, were all used in times of fear and trials to bring about the perfect plan of salvation to God's people. Without Joseph's transport to Egypt, his family would have starved.
When you are in a place of tribulation, ask God for His plan. He doesn't always tell us what He has planned but you will always be used to glorify Him. We don't have to know what God has planned. We just need to be available and mostly willing to serve Him. Jonah wasn't all that willing but still brought salvation to Nineveh and the Assyrian nation. His love for all people can be extended to the world through us.
