Have you ever stop to consider all the things in your life that was beyond your choice? Things that you had no control over. You had no choice who your parents were. You did not decide what country you would be born, You did not choose if you were to be a boy/girl.
But I think the most important “unchangeable” in your life is the time period you were born. You could have been born during the Colonial period of our country or the great expansion westward or any other time but God has chosen this time for you to exist. And the question we must ask ourselves is, “Why now?”
In the Book of Esther, we read the story of a poor (but beautiful) Jewish girl who becomes the Queen of Persia. It was only through the providence of God that she became Queen! When the Jewish nation was about to be wiped out; her uncle had this to say, “… And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this and for this very occasion? It was Esther’s time to make a difference.
God has ordained that you to be born at this time. The goal of every Christ-follower should be to discover the purpose for their being placed here now! Where does God want you to make a difference? You are here for such a time as this!
