Day 91 – Locate Your Place and Stay There


‘Like a bird that wanders from its nest is a man who wanders from his place. Proverbs 27:8 (NKJV)

It is wisdom for a person to be able to identify his or her own area of gifting and make every effort to stay and flourish there. Three key words can be identified in today’s scripture: wanders, nest, and his place.

There are some interesting definitions of the word ‘wander’ – to ramble without a definite purpose or objective; to go aimlessly, indirectly or casually; to extend in an irregular course or direction. These definitions all indicate activity, movement, or expression of some sort. But all without a clear focus of purpose. The word ‘place’ connotes a portion of space definite or indefinite that is specifically assigned to someone or a thing. There is a place assigned to everyone. There is an area of gifting built into every human by God. The problem of wandering occurs when we do not first take time to identify this place. Any activity or expression of yourself without reference to your place, will lead to wandering. Some people know where God has assigned them and for some reasons deliberately walk away from it, but majority of us just don’t locate our place before we start to do things!

You and I will be more effective in life and will leave a great legacy behind after we are gone, if we take the time to locate where we belong in God’s plan, and work hard towards fulfilling it. Decide and take necessary steps now.
