Our family travels a lot and we LOVE to shop! So, one of the first things we do in every new town…is find out where the NEAREST MALL is!
Even in a strange new place, I never worry about being able to find the bathroom. Because, in every mall concourse there’s that GIANT MAP that shows the location of all the stores and restrooms.
And because I have no earthly idea where I am; right next to the big red dot, it always says… “YOU ARE HERE!” Hallelujah!!!
God wants us to get to where we’re going. But, many times, we won’t take that first step and observe WHERE we are in life.
We don’t want to look at that because we don’t think we’ve achieved ENOUGH at this stage of our lives.
We don’t want to examine where we are because we don’t want to talk about our shortcomings.
But, that’s the first step before going to the next level. Don’t be afraid to honestly examine WHERE YOU ARE. Don’t be afraid of what you’ll find.
“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the LORD rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand…” Zachariah 4:10 (NLT)
When God sees us embark on something new, when He sees us STRETCH, when He sees us MOVE, when He sees us get UNCOMFORTABLE…He gets excited!
He says, “YES! They’re really gonna do it! They’re really gonna do what I created them to do!”
Take a good long look at your life and WHERE YOU ARE, now. Tell us WHERE YOU WANT TO GO, from here.
