Matthew 2:10 They could hardly contain themselves: They were in the right place! They had arrived at the right time! (The Message Bible)

The “they” here are the Wisemen and this is The Message Bible version of “When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.” Maybe it is an overinterpretation of what’s intended by Matthew but isn’t being in just the right place at just the right time one of the great joys of life. You know the feeling. Everything seems to fit in that moment and there is no place you would rather be in that time. Christians would call that being in God’s will; being with God in the place God has put you and knowing that is where you are. We generally only experience that in fits and starts in this life but it is great when we do. We get there by reading the scriptures, praying about what we find there, and trying to conform our lives to it. May you experience being in just the right place at just the right time often in 2022.
