You're Right Where You Are

“If you ain’t where you are, you’re no place.” ~Col. Sherman Potter, M.A.S.H. 4077

Sitting in a little bakery at a lunch meeting one afternoon, I listened as the young lady I was meeting with said, “God has me right where He wants me.”  I smiled.  I felt proud for her because she was so confident that she knew and I was happy for her.  Then I smiled more because at that moment, I knew that He has me right where He wants me too and for once in my life I knew it.  How ironic.

How do we know that we are right where God wants us?  How do we know that what we’re doing is in His will for our lives?  Many people have asked me this.  First of all, don’t trust your feelings.  Feelings are fickle.  They change like the wind.  Don’t trust your circumstances, either.  Because without warning those can also change.

So how do we really know that we are in the will of God?  Faith.  Trust.  We have to ask God to show us in ways we can understand, then follow His leading, His prompting, and just go with it, even if it seems weird.

If you want to fit in, be where God puts you.

God doesn’t always do things by the book.  Meaning, God doesn’t do things the way society dictates.  On the contrary, He does things His way, by His book, which means that quite often it’s over the top, out of our comfort zone, seemingly impossible, and the most outrageous thing you’ve ever thought of. 

“The LORD says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.”  ~Psalm 32:8, NLT

Everyone is looking for where they fit in.  Everyone wants to fit in somewhere.  And everyone does fit in.  God has a place for each and every one of us.  It’s a one-size-fits-all and it’s a custom fit for everyone.  It’s just your size.  Where you fit in is tailor made just for you.  It’s already waiting for you.  You don’t have to be fitted for it.  God already took care of that.  All you have to do is show up and step into it.  Go ahead. Try it on!  You’re right where you are for a reason. No matter where you are, if you’re where God wants you, you’re definitely someplace.
