I am dealing with the issue of membership and maturity and what it does for what God has for you. Things in the spirit are official. Don’t assume in your mind that you are under my watch as a mentor in the kingdom. When you come into the membership of the local Church where God has planted you, a process starts for you there. Being in place spiritually is key. Spiritual placement and location includes right attitude, right posturing, right membership and right responses. That you sit in church does not mean that you have the right posture.
There are things in your destiny that you can only get when you are in the spiritual condition. Why didn’t Jesus send the apostles out the first month he called them? Why did they need three and a half years of coaching and training? Even after that you see how long it took Peter to accept. He still said, “I cannot eat what is unclean.” God said, “Don’t call unclean what the Lord has sanctified.” He didn’t change and God had to give the ministry to the gentiles to Paul. What state should you be? I pity some wives that watch their husbands become unserious with church. The day becomes a criminal, she will be his first victim.
Being in place has to do with geography, spiritual, attitude and posture. Look at Ruth. Ruth was in the right place for Boaz to meet her and in the right posture. If she was posing as a beautiful girl, Boaz would not have noticed her. She was humbly working, doing whatever her hands found to do. It was in that place that God showed her to the man that was to marry her. Don’t let your circumstance define your destiny. God has a destination for you no matter the mistakes you have made. But let the directions of God guide your steps now.
