One thing I used to struggle with is opportunities that would knock on my door when I was unprepared. Those moments a friend would call me about a prime plot on sale and for one reason or another, I did not have the finances ready. It took me time to realize that the God I had submitted my life to, controlled all the happenings in my life including the seasons I had money and the seasons I did not. The scriptures says that God has set the boundaries of our habitations and the specific timings of our lives. There is nothing that happens in our lives that is outside the boundaries of his will. It is God who determines the generation that we live and there is a reason why you were not born a generation earlier or later. God designed each of us to serve in a given generation and has provided for us all the cards that we need in order to win our games in life? These includes the gifts God has given us to use and the things we cannot control such as our parents, nationality, tribe and native language. They also include our personalities, giftings, abilities as well as experiences. They make us separately unique from others. Many have wished they were born differently but God knew that we could never maximize our potential in any other environment. We are not responsible for the gifts that God has not given us and God will never judge us on the basis of what we did not have. God knew that we shall be around during this Corona virus pandemic and armed us for the same. What are you doing with what you’ve been given? How effectively are you serving God’s purposes in your generation? What is appearing beyond you and you are wishing you had the ability to deal? You are endowed differently and uniquely. You may never be like Esther but you can be a Ruth! Unique but still special. Don’t rob this world the joy of experiencing the real you!
“And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,” Acts 17:26 NKJV
