You Are Here

You are HERE.

 

Not over there

or over there

or even over there.

 

You are here.

 

And there is purpose in that.

 

God is looking at His map of the world

and He sees you

and you might think

that your “You Are Here” arrow is so small

and insignificant

that God couldn’t possibly notice

 

that you are here

 

Swallowed up by 7.1. billion people…

 

But He does.

 

He not only sees you,

He designed the map

He placed you on it

He created you

for this moment, this season, this place.

 

God has the aerial view

God has the on-the-ground view

God has the in-your-heart view

 

He sees with eyes ever open.

 

He sees you

He sees all of us.

 

And He is able to love each one.

Completely.

 

And He knows….

the suffering

the joy

the pain

the circumstances

 

He was the one that placed your “You Are Here” sticker on the map.

Lovingly

Deliberately

Creatively

For such a time as this.

 

And He longs for you to place a “You are Here” sticker

on your heart

for Him.

 

Because that’s where He belongs

and that’s what gives you purpose

on this great big map

in this great big universe

when a whole lot of things don’t make sense.

 

You are HERE.

Make it count.

“And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”  Esther 4:14 (NIV)

 

“This is the plan,
planned for the whole earth,
And this is the hand that will do it,
reaching into every nation.
God-of-the-Angel-Armies has planned it.
Who could ever cancel such plans?
His is the hand that’s reached out.
Who could brush it aside?”    Isaiah 14:26,27 (MSG)
