Grow Where You’re Planted

People are always searching for the next thing that will make them happy; get them financially secure, or to change their physical appearance.

It appears that many are discontent with their current status. They’re dissatisfied with their body, their job, their life.

Some are still climbing the ladder of success. There’s nothing wrong with trying to better yourself in your career. We all want to achieve our goals and live the best life possible.

It’s when we do all the above, with the wrong motives, and when leaving God out of our plans is the norm.

Oh, it seems that some people can get away with the dangerous, risky and sometimes illegal lifestyles. Running with the devil looks good at first, but will eventually lead you down a destructive path.

If you’re following God, you’re on the right path. God will plant you, where you are needed, to grow and spread yourself for the good of others.

God sees beyond what we see. He knows that those outside of His will, can’t see the good in the day to day; they can’t see beyond their own pain or circumstances.

Quit searching for a quick route to success. Stop looking for happiness in things.

Be content where God has planted you. He has great plans for you, that go beyond planting season.

John 15: 7 – “But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted!”

Trust that God has placed you right where you need to be.
