Romans 14:8 – 8 For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.
I often wonder why we were specifically put where we are — the time we were born, the geographic location where we live, the family we were born to. Why do we live in such a rich country when so much of the world lives in poverty? Why do we live in a time where technology is so advanced instead of a time when there was no technology at all.? Is it because we deserve it? Is it because we are better than others?
In today’s scripture Paul reminds us, “For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s“. Honestly, I don’t know why we live where we do, when we do, but I do know one thing. The Lord had a purpose and a plan for placing us when and where He did. As such, we must remember that we are not here to live for our own wants, but we are to serve and sacrifice for the Lord’s desires for us.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
