Where are you supposed to be?

Mentally and physically,
Refuse to go
Where your not
Supposed to be.
Refuse to look at
What you shouldn’t see.
Refuse to embrace
Anything that can
Take God’s place
As Lord of your life.

Everything that happens around us and to us isn’t God’s will. Peter wrote that “God’s not willing that any should perish,” yet many will. People who perish aren’t where there supposed to be. Sin is a violation of God’s will and He calls us to turn away from it and stop doing it. When we’re in active sin, we’re not where we’re supposed to be.

“All things work together for the good of those who love God,” but all things are not good. We are supposed to live in and stay in God’s will, but we don’t (even when we love God). Anytime we exit God’s will, we’re not where we’re supposed to be.

Just because I have loving feelings toward God I’m not always where I’m supposed to be. I can still be completely lost and off course and not even know it. I can love God and still sin and contradictively believe that my rebellion against God is part of His will for me.

Faithfulness to God means that we learn to know where He wants us to be (mentally and physically) and that we go there and abide there. Grace doesn’t excuse unfaithfulness. Instead, it calls us and empowers us to supernatural faithfulness.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
