“From one man He made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.” (Acts 17:26, NIV)

It’s difficult to understand that God made our entire civilization from one man. It’s just as amazing to think that He had appointed the exact time when each of us would be born and select the places where we would live.

Psalm 139:13, 16, NIV, reminds us that He has fashioned the very fiber of our being, knit us together, and predetermined our days:

“For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. … Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.” 

And, Ephesians 2:10, NIV, further encourages us that “we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

Each of us has been uniquely created to touch lives, spread the light, claim the territory, and advance the Kingdom of God where we work and where we live. God has placed us where we work with divine intentions.

It’s so easy to get distracted by the mundane aspects of our jobs. We often forget about the importance of the people and the relationships around us. We need to be reminded that we are part of a vastly bigger story – the story of God’s love.

My prayer for this Thursday is that God will place a burden on each of our hearts and help us build relationships with those people whose lives He has placed before us as part of His overall plan. I also pray that He will use us, where we live and work, to bring Him honor and glory.

Enjoy your day, “Working for Christ”!
