With God, there is no “wherever you would like to go is fine.”
God wanted Jonah in Nineveh, not in Tarshish; God wanted Abram in Canaan, not Haran; God wanted Saul in Europe, not Asia. At God’s right time, we need to be in God’s right place. Where you live and when you live there are important. You cannot reach the people God has prepared for you to reach if you are not in the place He wants you to be.
It is also important where you are in your attitudes and in your character. When Adam and Eve sinned, they hid themselves from the presence of the Lord. When God walked in the garden He called out, “Where are you?” The question was not limited to their location, but also to their relationship with God. We can ask ourselves, “Where am I in my thankfulness? Where am I in my praise? Where am I am my obedience? Where am I in my trust in the Lord?”
Today, may you be exactly where God wants you to be, doing what God has called you to do, at the time God wants you to do it, in a way that is pleasing to Him.
