“But I will come to you after I go through Macedonia, for I am going through Macedonia; and perhaps I will stay with you, or even spend the winter, so that you may send me on my way wherever I may go” (1 Corinthians 16:5-6).
Paul traveled all over the Mediterranean Sea to share the Good News of Jesus. He went where the Lord sent Him. We too are called to go where the Lord sends us. Come into the Lord’s presence and go according to His will where He would send you. Know that the Lord of all is the One who leads all who are faithful in the good and fruitful way that leads to eternal life.
Lord, I often think in terms of where I am and where I want to stay. Help me, O Lord, to begin to think in terms of who You are and where You would send me. Guide me, O Lord, in the way of eternal life that I would walk wherever You would have me walk and do whatever You would have me do. Let me look to You as the One who guides me in all things, knowing that You alone knows all things.
Lord Jesus, You who gave up Your eternal throne to walk among us, guide me in the way of truth and grant me a willingness to go where the Father would have me go. Lead me to be the servant of others, helping where You direct. In all things, lift up my countenance to willingly serve others no matter the inconvenience and do so with a cheerful heart and thankful attitude. Amen
