From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. – Acts 17:26 (NIV)

We can certainly say that we had nothing to do with the time and place of our birth! Your nationality and heritage were chosen by God. So even if someone were born in the outer mountains of Mongolia, God has set things in place so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out and find him. The apostle Paul gives us hope and a mystery for those who wonder about the faithfulness of God to His creation. Just like the Greeks that Paul was addressing, the question is not “What is God doing in the outer reaches of the world?” but rather “What is God doing in me right now?”
