Where You Fit

An expensive pair of shoes are worthless, if they don't fit. So it is in life, you need to find where you fit. Sadly, some people try to make themselves fit in the wrong place. Rest assured that God has a place where you will fit. Ask God to put you in your special place. Trust God to put you there in His time.

Joy comes as you discover your place. Don't try to force your way into the wrong place. It is constant discomfort. When you don't fit, you know it. God has made you for a certain time and place. Ask God to direct you to your place. That place is God's will for your life.

Being out of place is being out of God's will. Trying to force it to work will never work. Peace and joy comes as you know your place in life. You know in your heart. That's where you belong.

If you are not where you fit, submit to God. He knows the place for you. "He leads the humble in what is right, teaching them his way" (Psalm 25:9). God is the way to the place where you will fit.

God has a special place for you. It may not always be an easy place. There may be challenges where God wants you. Don't look for the place by outward circumstances. There's a better way. Follow the peace of God in your heart. "And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts" (Colossians 3:15).
