Let God Direct You Where To Go

Genesis 12:1
'The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you."'

You can't fill your car with petrol at a grocery store, but can get as much fuel as you want at a petrol station. What's my point? Just like you need to be in the right location to fuel your car, you need to be in the right location in order to succeed in God's plan for your life.

A good example of this is found in the life of Elijah the prophet: 'Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah: "Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan. You will drink from the brook, and I have directed the ravens to supply you with food there,"' 1 Kings 17:2-4.

Ravens are normally ravenous birds and will quickly eat whatever food they find, but here they are bringing food to Elijah! This was a supernatural act of provision. God directed Elijah where to go; Elijah obeyed and God supernaturally provided all he needed.

When you do what God tells you and go where He leads you, you'll move from the natural into the supernatural realm of provision. God has a plan for each of our lives, but He also has the right place for it. Yes it's important to have the right strategy, but you must have the right location.

Maybe God's calling to minister right where you are, or maybe it's overseas in a country not yet revealed to you. Perhaps He's calling you to remain in the city, or maybe He's calling you to the country. The point is this: God not only has a plan for your life, He also has the right spot for you to fulfill that plan.

Isaiah 48:17 says, "...I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go." If you're prepared to go anywhere and your heart's desire is to please God in all things, He will reveal the right location. It may even be several locations spanning across the rest of your life.

He will go ahead of you and make all the crooked places strait by arranging circumstance to your advantage. Consider Abraham: 'By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going,' Hebrews 11:8.

Abraham simply obeyed God's word and went even though he did not know, at that exact time, where he was going. He went by faith and God blessed him every step of the way. Yes Abraham encountered some trials along the way, but he was also abundantly blessed because he obeyed God. Dear reader, God has the plan and He has the spot, so ask God and trust Him to direct you where to go.

Have a blessed day 
Paul
