Luke 5:27 And after these things he went forth, and saw a publican, named Levi, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he said unto him, Follow me.
In a game of soccer, managers may be in the position to tolerate unintentional events like scoring an own goal or misplacing a couple of passes in key areas of the pitch but very few, if any, will tolerate the occurrence of a team member playing way out of position. Just imagine the goal keeper being positioned around the centre circle 10 minutes into a game.
Many times, our locations have a lot of significance. They determine which opportunities we get and those we miss. Looking at Levi, he was found at the ‘receipt of custom’- that was where he was supposed to be and that was where he received his call from. He will have missed this invitation had he being anywhere else but at this post.
It’s about time we took clear note of where we find ourselves on a regular basis. We can’t just be anywhere at anytime because we want to. You should know that some opportunities will not chase you down, but come to you when you are rightly positioned to receive them; else they pass you by.
This may seem to suggest staying at the same exact location waiting for opportunities to stride along but that is far from true. If your current location is where you are supposed to be, then fine- you can play the waiting game. If not, then it may be time to take a leap of faith and change your location. Find that place where you will be appreciated for who you are and what you have to offer. That is the start of great things.
Remember # Changing your location, can change your life.
