Right Place / Right Time Vs The Rewards of the Presence of the Lord

Right place at the right time vs. the reward of the presence of the Lord.  

Sometimes we have to choose. Yes, choose whether we want to be at the right place at the right time or the presence of the Living God.  When we seek the presence of the Living God, we instantly position ourselves to be at the right place at the right time.  No more seeking and no more step by step recipe of life needed.    What we think is the right place at the right time will often leave us hopelessly in a whirlwind, going here and there and helplessly frustrated.  This is very much because there is no right place and the right time without peace in God.  So, again, yes, we have to choose if we want to seek being at the right place at the right time before being okay with staying where we are to seek the rewards of the presence of the Spirit of the Lord.

We can not seek to be at a location or a position more than seeking peace with God at the same time; we can only choose one or choose the other.  

There is no quick fix.  There is no short cut.  There is not a step by step plan.  No step by step to this life, only step after step.  Love doesn't live on a step by step recipe - love is quite the opposite; love does this on purpose to prove that God is God and man is man.   Man needs a step by step formula for survival.  God doesn't.  My man-ness wants always to have a play by play, and I realize that God doesn't work that way.  He is SUPER in my frailty.

How about I stop.  Stop trying.  Receive peace now : )

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
