Do You Have L.S.?

If you’ve ever thought, “Man, if I could just get out of this city!” then you’ve probably had Location Sickness.  It’s that frustrating feeling that if you were just somewhere else everything would be going well for you.  I have it a lot.  I want to do something great for God, but I’m stuck here.

David was anointed king of Israel as a teenager.  I’m sure he was pretty stoked.  But as soon as the ceremony with Samuel and the fam was over he headed back to the field with the sheep.  You’d think he would have headed straight to the palace.  Nope, back to the field.

In terms of strategic positioning that would be the equivalent of someone who wanted to be a movie star moving to Nebraska looking for their big break.  It’s bad strategy.

But here’s the deal.  God knows where you are.  He’s watching how you bloom right where you are planted.  He saw David hanging with the dirty sheep in the field and when the time came he called him out.  He made him a national hero overnight.

If you struggle with Location Sickness like I do remember this – God knows where you are and he is looking for your faithfulness right where you are.  If you are being faithful, get ready – big things are ahead.  Those big things might just happen right where you are, so learn to love where you are right now.
