Our Personal Constellation of Influence

constellations

If we were to chart on a map the twenty people we’re closest to, those scattered dots would form our personal constellation of influence, and it would look different than that of anyone else in the world. Add to this where we live, our age, our condition of health, our gifts and talents, and where we work, go to school, or spend our time in retirement and no one else is in exactly the same situation in which we find ourselves. This is by God’s design; He has a plan to use us right where we are!

Each of us is the right person, in the right place, at the right time, to do the right thing! God is calling us to take advantage of our unique circumstances for Him!

God could certainly carry out His great and grand purposes without our help, but He has chosen not to do so. Instead, He invites us to partner with Him to make a difference in this fallen, broken, and sinful world. What a privilege, what an opportunity, what a responsibility, what a way to live a fulfilled life!

“We will serve the Lord our God and obey him.” (Joshua 24:24)
