Bloom Where You Are Planted

1 Corinthians 7:20 “Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.”

Consistency is one of the great character traits of the Lord.  Thankfully He never changes.  He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.  There is no doubt that there are things the Lord does differently, because the times are different.  However; when the Lord gives us an instruction, that instruction will not change.  I also believe that the Lord wants us to live in that same manner.

  • We all have a Special Design:  God designed us so that He could use us.
  • We all have a Specific Duty:  We learn here that God has a job for each of us.
  • We all have a Sovereign Destiny:  God has a unique purpose of all of us.

The Lord has placed a specific calling in each of our lives.  We need not argue with that calling.  We also do not need to try to change that calling.  We must live in our calling.  We must abide right where God called us.  It is important that we realize that we can’t improve on an instruction from the Lord.

Today’s Challenge:  Bloom where the Lord planted you!
