You aren’t where you are by accident; you are there by God’s design. Your country, your city, your family, your job or school – God put you there, and He never does anything without a reason. You are where you are by God’s sovereign design, and He wants to use you right where you are.
This world is not our final home; because of what Christ has done for us we have “an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade – kept in heaven for you” (1 Peter 1:4 NIV). But in the meantime God calls us to be instruments of His love and justice in an unbelieving world.
Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you…. Pray to the Lord for it.”
