“A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.
– Matthew 13:3-8
Where we are determines what grows within us. Our weaknesses and strengths require a specific climate.
Folks you cannot be working on the wrong job, for the wrong boss, doing the wrong things for 40 hours a week and expect to have success. Everyone who has succeeded was doing the right things and had to be in the right location. Geography makes a lot of difference in life and relationships.
“God will not bless you just anywhere you go. God will bless you however, if you are willing to go anywhere in order to obey and please Him!” Just like in the parable of the Sower quoted above, where we are determines what grows within us – weeds or flowers, success or failure, strength or weakness.
Where we are also determines who we know. If you want success then you have to get to where successful people are. You can’t achieve success when you hang around lazy and uninspiring people. Whether it’s in our business, work, life or relationships we need to be in the right place with the right people. So go out there and make yourself seen!
This week go where you are celebrated instead of where you are tolerated. “Seek to be where God wants you to be hourly, daily, weekly. Become more conscious of where you are, where you work and for whom you work.”
There is place you are supposed to be. Get there!
