We’re familiar with this slogan regarding real estate, but let’s apply it to our spiritual lives. Specifically, the physical location where we regularly spend time with our heavenly Father. In any season—whether literal or figurative—let’s pay attention to where He wants to meet with us.
Our staff recently enjoyed a paid personal day with God (see my blog titled, Paid Retreat Days for Your Staff). At the beginning of the day, I felt led to relocate from my indoor “God chair,” to our back deck. Immediately, I was engulfed by the great outdoors. I could see for miles. I felt the warmth of the sun, the gentle breeze. I heard chirping birds, buzzing insects, whirring cars (which I converted to ocean waves in my mind). There was an occasional butterfly, a large dragonfly, and green all around. And then, God drew my attention to one specific object in our neighbor’s yard. I’ll tell you about that next week.
Psalm 18:19 says, “He brought me out into a broad place.” A broad place—one that is spacious, wide open, full of freedom, and new possibilities. God is faithful to bring us to good places. Let’s be faithful to follow, even in the simplicity of a new place to meet with Him. Leaders who follow God’s promptings—no matter how seemingly insignificant—receive God’s blessings.
