In 3 1/2 weeks we move to live in the USA for a time. As I pack, organise & make the mulitude of decisions that comes with transition, much have been my ponderings on 3 nations – Australia, USA & UK.

As an Australian leaving my home country, it is natural for friends to think that our focus now is all about where we will live. But not so. It is I believe a shift in vantage point.

In a sense, we are all being confronted by a shift in vantage point.

I was struck several weeks ago by a report from the Australian Media stating that the Australian government is in process of readdressing its international military support as the USA declines in being the sole world leader. Australia’s attention turning to the immergence of China.

This is but one of several & increasing reports coming out of the Australian media reflecting the shift that has been made from a single world leader to a dual world leader that now includes China.

Since January 2008, when the Lord gave us a picture of 3 nations – Australia, USA & UK with jet streams frequenting between them, we have been drawn to watch for what is on God’s heart in these days for these 3.

God has plans for these 3 nations in this hour of the shifting of the guard.

God’s word says that “He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, & has determined their preappointed times & the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord..” (Acts 17:26-27)

We know that God called us to encourage & exhort people to seek the Lord.

As it is true for nations, so it is for each of us as individuals. We have a preappointed time & boundaries of influence. What will we do with it?

I invite you in this critical hour, seek the Lord… for change is here & only He knows the path for which we are to walk in a way not gone before.
