Where Am I Now?

Looking Within

Does not God see my ways and count my steps?  If I have walked with falsehood or vanity, or if my foot has hastened to deceit– Oh, let me be weighed in a just balance and let Him weigh me, that God may know my integrity  (Job 31: 4-6).  And the Lord God called unto Adam and said unto him, “Where art thou?”  And he said, “I heard Thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked:  and I hid myself” (Genesis 3: 9, 10).

Where are you?  What an interesting question.  When God asks you where you are, He is asking where is your spiritual location in Him.  How do you measure/weigh in His balance?  Whatever you are doing, whether good or bad is being weighed on God’s scales.  Many people will find their weight is equal to zero. 

It is important to remember that when you are not where you should be, you become an easy target for the enemy.  Perhaps the Lord has searched for you among  the divine dreamers, visionaries, prophets, etc. and your name was not in any of these places.  Then suddenly the devil shouts, “God, I have his/her name in my evil records.”  So, do you hear God’s voice asking you today, “Where are you?” 

Adam had left the place where God had called him to be.  Because Adam was in the wrong place, God changed His original intention for him.   You need to know dear friend that when you depart fromthe path of God for your life, a 40-day journey will take you 40 years!  Many people have never found out what God has planned for their life.  Some have discovered God’s plans but they have abandoned the plans after listening to people of the world. 

I do hope you know that money, education, or material possessions are NOT signs that you are enjoying God’s blessing.  The signs of His blessing are ONLY SEEN when you are at the center of  His will.  Are you at the center of God’s will, or are you like David who stayed at home while his men were fighting; or, like Peter who was warming himself at the enemy’s campfire?  When you are in the wrong place you CANNOT receive God’s blessings.  All that you will get are crumbs here and there. 

When you are not in fellowship with the Lord; you are a target for the enemy and your vision has disappeared because your heart has grown cold (Proverbs 29: 18;  Hebrews 3: 7-14;  Revelation 3: 14-18).  We have large numbers of spiritually deaf and dumb people in many churches today:  they do not hear from the Lord, neither do they have any vision.

Where are you?  Belshazzar eventually knew where he was.  God told him that He had finished the arithmetic and had weighed him in the balances and found him wanting (Daniel 3).  Close your eyes and talk to the Lord about yourself  this way:  “Lord, I come to You in Jesus name and ask You to set my life on fire for You.  Bury all my lukewarmness, in Jesus name, amen.”
