I determined

I determined
the exact time of your birth and where you would live.
Acts 17:26
(NKJV) 26 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,

Have you ever wondered how life would be if you had been born in a different
country, perhaps with different parents, or even at a different time in
history? Many of us have fantasized about this and maybe even felt that things
would have been much better for us if we lived in a different country with
different parents.
scripture verse clearly demonstrates that it was God who determined the exact
time when each one of us would be born, who our parents would be, and where we
would live. He does not make mistakes, for He is the master planner. He foresaw
your life and placed you in your family.
it is understandable for some people to feel cheated out of a better life, the
truth is that you were born at the right time and place according to God's
plan. His love will conquer the most terrible circumstances in our lives, and
His grace can restore all of the wasted years that the locusts have eaten.
of feeling like you were cheated out of a better life than you might have had,
begin to thank God for His incredible purpose in the life you are now living.
He placed you in the family you are in, and he chose the exact time of your
birth and where you would live. His plan for each one of us is that all things
will work together for your good according to His good purpose because we love
Father, help me to realize that You chose my parents, the time of my birth and
where I would live. I am thankful that You do not make mistakes. Help me to
realize that Your love can conquer any situation or circumstance that I find
myself in and You desire to cause all things to work together for my good
according to Your good purpose! In the name of Your beloved Son Jesus, I pray,
