God 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. ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ Paul to the Athenians, Acts 17:26
I was just reading an article on the individuals with the highest IQs, and got a little stressed. Their figures were far higher than mine!!
Then I remembered God determined the exact places we should live. He determines the precise IQ we should have to do the precise work he has determined for us to do. So my IQ is perfect for the work he has called me to do– not so high that no one can understand what I am saying; not so low that no one would be bothered to.
Relax, Anita; relax everyone. God has given us the precisely perfect set of intellectual, physical, social and emotional skills to do the work he has intended for us to do perfectly, if we walk through our lives step by step with him.
