It’s ALL a Setup: God sets you up…to lift you up!

Did you know you're being set up? Did you know your setup is inspired by you? Yes, it's ALL a setup: God sets you up to lift you up.

Here's an example of one of my setups. 

On April 10, 2014, I sat next to a gentleman at a book publishing seminar. When I spotted the seat where I wanted to sit, initially I hesitated because there were other empty seats in the room. But, since I prefer to sit near the front of a room, it was the perfect spot. I thought, “Maybe I should sit next to the lady at the table behind him instead?” But something inside my subconscious tugged at me to sit in the chair next to him. I figured there was a reason why I was drawn to that particular seat. So, without further consideration, I sat.

I greeted him with a hello and introduced myself.  He, in return, did the same. I asked if he were there to write a book. He replied, "No." He asked me the same question. I said, "Yes." He asked what my book was about. I paused for a second. Then, looking him squarely in the eye, I told him the title: "It's all a setup! God sets you up -- to lift you up.” He then told me of a time when he spoke to a church congregation and said to them, "God's going to take control of your life whether you want to or not." When I heard that, I knew exactly why I needed to sit there. His response spurred on a captivating conversation.

Listening to my inner tug positioned me for the setup. My obedience also opened me to receive what was intended to be accomplished during that brief encounter. I learned that he, Mike, is a Field Representative for a U.S. Senator. 

If I hadn't sat there, I'm certain we would never have met. I would not have had the pleasure of hearing the message he told the congregation. I learned about the character and values of a stranger who serves in the field representing our country. Mike also gave me his business card. If I hadn't sat there, I could not share this story. 

Mike Fenley, thanks for aiding in fulfilling God’s purpose to share this story in my blog, and in my forthcoming book. I'm so glad I followed the tug and sat in the seat that was meant for me.

Can you recognize your inner tug -- your setup? Do you know why it matters?

Get tuned in to who you are and why you're here.
