“Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being imperfect and in thy book all were written which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.”(Psalms 139:16)
The Psalmist here is talking about destiny. He says ‘You planned it all out as to how many days I would live. You wrote down the number of them in your books even before I had lived through even one of them.’ Every day of your life was already recorded in His book. All the stages of your life were spread out before God. Your story line is known to God.
You know Jacob who became Israel and had 12 sons. When he was a very old man, he became a prophet of God. So one day he summoned all his sons before him and we see how amazingly he revealed to them their destiny. You have a destiny that only you can complete. Help will be given but it is upon you to fulfill it. What you do with this one life determines your destiny for eternity. Yes this life is the only life to live out the will of God to the fullest in order to enjoy untold privileges in the eternity of God.
But you may have a good destiny but it won’t benefit you if you don’t develop self control. Satan has plenty of time to wait for you to fall. All the potential in the world won’t benefit you if you don’t develop self-control, especially in the area of sexual temptation.
You need to know that the actions of believers determine their future blessings in God’s program. It is not enough to just discover our destiny. We need to see that the events/works that are required should also be done. Even the choices we make today, will affect our destiny tomorrow. There are actions to be taken at the right time and there will be trials in our lives to bring us back to God. All the happenings in our lives and all the incidents that take place propel us in the direction of our destiny.
Some sudden crisis may come your way. Don’t worry. God has accounted for all that in His great plan and destiny. Fulfilling one’s destiny is not for people of weak standing. There is a price to fulfill your destiny. It may take you through valleys and shadows of death. But if you are sincere, God will be with you.
To fulfill your destiny God has given us talents, skills and wisdom. Use them to fulfill your destiny. All the talents you were born with, that you received after you became born again and that you developed and sharpened to earn your daily bread, should also be used for God’s kingdom.
Beloved don’t be afraid you will fulfill your destiny because it is God who works in and through you for His good pleasure. Keep these things in mind and I tell you, you will finish your race and accomplish the purpose God has for you.
Pray, “Lord anytime I go away from my destiny, You lead me back by your grace and mercy. I refuse to be removed from the divine agenda in the name of Jesus. I refuse to be limited by any power of darkness in the name of Jesus. Lord let every perverted destiny be removed from my life in Jesus name. I reject every satanic re-arrangement of my destiny in Jesus name. I refuse to live below my divine standard in Jesus name. Lord let every damage done to my destiny be repaired now in Jesus name. O Lord, restore to me your original plan and design for my life. O Lord, speak to me, lead me and guide me to fulfill what you have for my life. Let the spirit of excellence come upon me. The rod of the wicked shall not rest upon my life in the name of Jesus. I break every curse of backwardness in the name of Jesus. Every unprofitable hurt feelings, offences, distress and pain be gone out of my life in Jesus name. I break everything that controls my life in an evil way in Jesus name.”
