"This Time and Place" - 10/20/16 - John 7-8

10/20/16 - John 7-8

"This Time and Place"

"Jesus said, "If I turned the spotlight on Myself, it wouldn't amount to anything. But My Father, the same One you say is your Father, put Me here at this time and place of splendor."(8:54)

Just as He did for our Savior, He has put each one of us here - in this place.  at this time. 
Do you ever marvel at that?  Do you ever recognize that nothing - not one incident - is by "chance"?
He gave each of us the freedom of choice.  Do you ever stop and realize He gave us The Gift of our Savior when free choice brought sin into this world?  Do you ever stop and try to grasp, before the world was - He had each of your days, your moments numbered?

Do you ever think about whom you are living for?  Is it for your "self" or for Him? 
Are you taking this treasure of life and living it for and in Him?  Are you sharing The Treasure of Him with all you meet?  Are you allowing Him to shine through "you"?  Are your "fruits" of Him?
Time goes too fast, too soon.  Please, take each moment He gives you and really look at the wonder of it all.  Each person you encounter - He planned for their path to cross yours - our Divine Appointments.  Each cloud, color of His nature, animal, rock, blade of grass - every single thing you encounter with your senses - He planned. 

It never ceases to cause my heart to leap when I read The Word He gives me for this time in my life.  It never ceases to give me comfort when His Word - through Scripture or song - comes running from my heart to my mind.  It never ceases to amaze me in the wonderment of this life, I am only getting a glimpse of how very much He loves me.  Loves you.  Loves all of us.

He has placed each one of us "here at this time and place of splendor." I pray we are all living with the spotlight on and for Him.
