Did you know that we are in certain places for a reason? We’re supposed to be in the lives of specific people and they are to be in our lives too. Some people are blessings from God and others help us develop patience and love. One of my treasures is that my heart and spirit are at ease with God no matter where I am. The Apostle Paul was horribly persecuted for his faith and spent many years in jail. No matter where he went or how difficult things were he had the assurance of being in God’s will. Maybe you aren’t in the most ideal situation. It might be pretty bad, ask God to lead you to where you belong. When you are in the place he has called, you will still have challenges. The difference is you have the assurance of being in God’s will and the peace that comes from him.
7 And the peace of God [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus [is yours].Philippians 4:7
11 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. 12 I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. 13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.Phillippians 4:11
