Devotional For January 27, 2024

And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,
‭‭Acts‬ ‭17‬:‭26‬

The Bible tells us that God predetermined the time and place that you would live. He determined where and when you would be breathed into life. He has a perfect plan for your life and is not surprised by the twists and turns that rise up in each of our lives.

When we face challenging circumstances, it can be easy to let bitterness push us away from faith. What if you instead let your troubles deepen your relationship with the Father? He alone has control over the days that your life contains. He alone can use the hard things we go through and transform them into a testimony of God’s faithful love that carries us through the storms.

What comfort we can gain in knowing that God has not placed us in our current circumstances by accident. He is not far from any one of us and not surprised when life surprises us!


Lord, thank You for placing me right where I am. Help me to recognize that you have orchestrated all things for Your purpose. Guide me to foster understanding, compassion, and unity in my life. In Jesus’ name, amen.
