God Determined Dwelling Place

Ever wonder why you were born where you were?

Was it just a matter of chance?

Acts 17:26-28 (ESV)

26 And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place,
27 that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel their way toward him and find him. Yet he is actually not far from each one of us,
28 for “ ‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said, “ ‘For we are indeed his offspring.’

From one man arose every nation.

Each nation has an allotted time period.

Each nation’s boundaries are predetermined by God.

  1. From one man, to the current world population of 7 billion people.

    And, throughout the ages, no one was a surprise to God. How could that be, when He knew who would be who, before we were even born?

    It tells us in the Psalms that He knows the stars by name.

    He knows us.

    Absolutely nothing catches the Lord by surprise. That is quite comforting. Those of us who have been privileged to grow up hearing the gospel need to be very thankful.
