We often wonder where we are in the scheme of things? We look ahead and wonder, where is my life headed? What does the future hold?
We look at the present and ask, why am I here, now, doing what I’m doing? Wouldn’t I be better served in another place, with other responsibilities, better utilizing my talents and pursuing my passions?
We may even look back and long for simpler times with less problems, responsibilities, and duties; at a time when we wanted something “more” but would now give anything to return to that time of previous dissatisfaction?
Think about the life of David.
“He chose David his servant
and took him from the sheepfolds;
from following the nursing ewes he brought him
to shepherd Jacob his people,
Israel his inheritance.”
(Psalm 78:70-71 ESV)
Did he, while shepherding the flocks, dream about greater things for his life? Did he, under the immense weight of responsibility as king ever long for the simplicity and solitude of the pastures and company of the guileless sheep?
Young David was a king, caring for nursing ewes. King David was a shepherd leading God’s inheritance.
It matters not where we may now be, doing what we may now do; our future, our past, our present, our life lies in God’s hands.
Right now; right here; I must do my best, give my all, and look for God to lead me where He will.
