Years ago, I heard a pastor say that God could care less where a person lives or what house they decide to buy. 

I disagree. 

Sure, in the grand scheme of things, purchasing a particular home may not seem like much, but …

God is sovereign. 

He alone knows our future. He alone knows if a house will become a home. He alone knows how one family could impact a particular neighborhood or neighbor. He alone knows the details. 

The Word says the Lord knows the number of hairs on our head (and the true color! :) 

Why even the hairs on your head are all numbered.Luke 12:7 

Since He cares enough to count strands of hair, why would He not delight in leading the way for us to find a place to live, work and do life with others to His glory? 

I confess this subject is on the forefront of my mind because we’ve decided, Lord willing, to sell our 100-year-old home.

I can envision myself and our family in certain places — but above all, we want to hear God well and follow Him closely in this process — confident that He is at work for our good and for His glory. 

Is there some area in your life where you need to rest in God’s sovereignty today? You’re not alone, my friend. 

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5
