Ideal Place

Description

We need not wait for the ideal time and place to serve God.

FOR CONSIDER YOUR CALLING, BRETHREN, THAT THERE WERE NOT MANY WISE ACCORDING TO THE FLESH, NOT MANY MIGHTY, NOT MANY NOBLE; BUT GOD HAS CHOSEN THE FOOLISH THINGS OF THE WORLD. — 1 CORINTHIANS 1:26-27

Once my life is running smoothly. . . 
If I didn't have toddlers under foot. . .
As soon as I get this anger problem under control. . .
When I get enough money. . .
As soon as I (fill in the blanks). . .then I can be used by God.

We are where we are, when we are, because our Father chose us for such a time as this. Our steps are ordered by Him. Whether He has called us to teach a Sunday school class, pray with other moms, lead a Bible study, or sing in the choir—we need not wait for the ideal time and place to serve Him. The only "ideal" is where you are right now.

God delights in using His people—right in the middle of all that appears crazy and wrong and hopeless. Now is the time to serve God, not next week or next year or when things get better. He wants our cheerful, obedient service right in the midst—even in spite of—our difficult circumstances.

LET'S PRAY:

Father, help me see that there is no "ideal" place or circumstance to serve You. You can, and will, use me right where I am. Thank You that I do not have to have it all together to be used by You.
