Elder Twanna House shared:
"Know Your Place, Know Your Purpose"

I remember as a child that sometimes my parents would tell me to “know my place.” It meant that I was not to get involved with grown folks’ conversation or be disrespectful. It was a directive to make sure I knew how to act appropriately in any given situation.

As I have grown and now have children of my own, I realize knowing your place is more than just doing what your parents told you. It is to have an awareness of who you are and your purpose in God. I have come to the understanding that knowing your place has its benefits. How so? You perceive your life with a different pair of eyes. Rather than looking at things negatively, you see them positively knowing that it is for your making for greater in your life. “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” – Romans 8:28

As long as I know that I love God, then He called me. He has already orchestrated everything to work for my good. That is the hope we can hold in our hearts through the storms of life. We have security in God in us because we know our place and our purpose to serve Him. Don’t let life shake you up. Stand firm, and know your place.
