God is active in our world. He is not silent or uninvolved; He is at all times accomplishing His master plan. We see over and over in scripture how God positions people to be used to further Kingdom purposes. As in the story of Nehemiah, it doesn’t matter what our natural occupation is. God took Nehemiah out of a position of serving the king and used him to be a contractor for the King of Kings. In the story of Esther, she is taken out of a common life and given the position of a queen. But the opposite transpires for Moses; he is taken out of royalty and placed in the wilderness. There are many examples of God displacing people from their natural duties and reassigning them for the work of the King. God is strategically placing all who are willing to be used for the Kingdom and sometimes that means giving up of what we think is right or good for our life. So let’s not lock ourselves into a position in life without giving God consent to do with us as He pleases.
