When I think of the places that God sent His key men for His assignments, they were certainly not the best resorts of the world. Abraham went to a land that was totally strange to him. Moses was sent back to his own people where he had killed a man and then spent forty years trekking through a desert with those who rejected His leadership and nations who opposed Israel’s journey. David spent much of his early years running from cave to cave; dodging his enemies. Jesus had nowhere to lay His head during three and a half years. Wherever God sent Paul, he ran into hardship, rejection and suffering. They were all in the places God assigned for each.
The place God sent these men to did not matter. What mattered was that each one knew God intimately and wanted to do His will. The most wonderful example is our Savior. He shared “glory” with His Father “before the world existed” (John 17:5), and in following the Father’s will, He left that glory and “humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross” (Philippians 2:8).
Let God choose the place of your assignment. If you choose, you will impose your will on God’s and miss the greatest experience of doing God’s work God’s way. I could not think of a better place to be than where I am, even with all its limitations, but confident of the presence and power of God the Spirit. Are you content with where you are?
