Did you know that it's God's plan all along to bring you to serve Him from where you are right now? God has a plan for your life and if you are cooperating with the Holy Spirit, you'll always be at the right place, doing the right thing at the right time, according to God's divine calendar. He also has a specific time for His purpose for your life to come to fulfilment. This means that at every time and place you find yourself, you are not there by mistake because you're strategically positioned to fulfil God's plan for you as per time.

Reference: Esther 4:14 New International Version (NIV) 'And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?'

Beloved, who knows if perhaps you were made Queen, Governor, President, Commissioner, Pastor, Evangelist, Bible study teacher, gardener, manservant with a difference - for just such a time as this? In other words, it wasn't by chance, it was ordained by God to happen. Did you know that if Joseph wasn't falsely accused and put in the prison at such a time as that, he wouldn't have the opportunity to interpret the dreams of Pharaoh's Baker and Butler that eventually led him to the palace? The butler who was restored to his position according to Joseph 's dream, came forward two years later and revealed how Joseph interpreted his dream. At once, Joseph was sent for and he also interpreted Pharaoh's dream that saved all of Egypt (see Genesis 41:8-16). So Joseph was strategically positioned all along (right from the beginning).

Mordecai and the Jews were not in their comfortable position in Persia, under King Ahasuerus. Mordecai adopted his orphaned cousin, Esther (see Esther 2:7). Strategically, she was made queen in the place of the exiled queen Vashti. When Haman plotted against Mordecai and the Jews, and won the king's permission to carry out his plan, Mordecai communicated Haman's scheme to Queen Esther. At that crucial time, Mordecai reminded Esther saying, 'Who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this? Queen Esther finally used her favour with the king to reverse the scheme, leading the king to authorize the Jews to kill their enemies, which they did.

Sometimes, as a Christian, you may think that where you are in life is a surprise to God and that He is no longer mindful of you. Sometimes you think that God has forgotten that you need that helper, a husband, a wife, a child or even that good job. You now believe it's too late. Sometimes you hear some people grumbling and expressing dissatisfaction or annoyance about where they were supposed to have been in life, forgetting that it is by God's mercy, because to be candid, some of their mates are already buried in the grave.

Do you love God? If you do, then you are in tune with God's calendar. Just remain faithful to God because He has a plan for your life and a specific time for that plan to be fulfilled. Sometimes God puts you in a school of faith to learn to listen to the Holy Spirit, study His Word, pass the tests and get ready for your set time. The fact that your mates have gone farther in marriage and raised children does not mean that God has abandoned you. God's time for you is the best and He will surely manifest His greater blessings through you.

You are unique and you have a unique place in God's heart which no other person can occupy. So never think that God is no longer aware that you are in the waiting list for that miracle. In fact your miracle is strategically positioned to happen in a way that will touch many lives - for such a time as this. Remember that Europe and North America operate by different time zones. In other words, that Europe will experience their noon-time ahead of North America, does not mean America will not meet up with their noon-time. They are just geographically positioned at different time zones. Therefore, understand that wherever you are today, it serves a specific purpose in God's plan for your life.

Instead of giving up on God, understand that you're in that place at that specific time to fulfil God's plan per time. Keep demonstrating your faith in God, remain faithful to Him and keep walking with Him because you are next in line for God's best.

Scripture Reading - Proverbs 3:5-6; Ecclesiastes 3:1; Jeremiah 29:11; Lamentations 3:25-26; Proverbs 16:9.

Exuberant Declaration: God's timing is always perfect for me. Therefore, I trust in the Lord with my heart and I refuse to lean not on my own understanding. For such a time as this, I'm a light in a darkened world. In all my ways, I acknowledge God, I submit to Him and He makes my paths straight, which leads me forward to the fulfilment of glorious destiny in Christ. Blessed be God!
