“Let the hearts of those rejoice…who seek and require the Lord as their indispensable necessity” Psalm 105:3

Ages before your birth, God put your entire life in order. He assigned you to this hour, and to the exact location where you reside, years in advance – so that you might seek and find Him!

“…He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us” (Acts 17:26-27).

You are not where you are, when you are, merely by chance. God put you here in this moment so that you would seek Him together with others in unity and passion.
