PREPARED - PLANTED - PLACED - PRUNED - PROSPERED

      Notice, God placed the man in the garden, "eastward in Eden."  its not enough to be in the garden, you've got to be in the right location. You must pray, "Lord, "place" me in My garden."

    You learn a lot by raising children. You're older and wiser, saying, "Don't do that. Don't go there."  But you can't cut through the process. They have to stumble, because that's how they learn to walk and find their way. Maybe you yourself worked at several jobs before figuring out what you were supposed to do. That's because you weren't "placed" yet. At some point, if you're wise, you begin to pray, "Lord don't let me spend my life trying stuff, "place" me"!   You can be in the right "place" and not know it--because the "place" has not been planted, not created! 

  Dave Thomas, the founder of Wendy's, was the child of an unwed mother. He recalls being ashamed of not having a decent pair of shoes to wear.  Imagine: a school dropout, wearing shoes that don't fit, working as a busboy waiting tables--but he has a six-billion dollar business inside of him. It doesn't matter where you start, it just matters where you finish.

    You need to look in the mirror and announce, "There's something in me that hasn't come out yet. God, help me to be steadfast until You pull out of me what You "planted" in me."

  Don't let anyone convince you that you're a failure because you don't wear the right shoes, or have it all together right now. God has a "place" in mind for you.   Just walk with Him and He'll get you there.
