Destiny

Our lives are like a seed. We are born with the potential to fulfill the destiny that has already been established within us, because God always makes us with the end in mind. It’s all there in that tiny seed, but what we do with it determines our destiny.

And what, in a nutshell, is potential? It’s the unexposed ability, reserved strength, unused success, dormant gifts and hidden talents that lie within each of us. It is the person we are still to become, where we can go but still have not been, all we can do but have not yet done, what we can reach but have not yet aimed for. It may be in seed form right now, but if we diligently sow, water and nurture that seed, by faith it will come to fruition. How do we sow that seed? By listening and reading Gods word. And listening to the holy spirit who is within us and always directs us. Taking one step a time as He directs you.

Majority of us spend a lifetime doing something completely opposite. Our lives are like a seed. We are born with the potential to fulfill the destiny that has already been established within us, because God always makes us with the end in mind. It’s all there in that tiny seed, but what we do with it determines our destiny.

Most people do the complete opposite of their God given purpose. And no wonder many people are miserable, even develop illnesses caused by stress by being in something He didnt create you for. Your purpose should come naturally and be enjoyable as you perform it. But as long as we put money at the forefront, we are unlikely to walk in His will for us. Yet He is faithful, and He will feed and clothe you like the birds of the air and the lilies of the field if you will obey. Just recently when i got clear direction from God as to what my purpose is, i could not fathom it. I thought i didn’t have what it takes to write and speak. I imagined speaking before a congragation and i just could not see myself having the confidence. Then today, i got the revelation that, most times am actually required to speak to just one or two people at a time. I even realised that i have been doing that all my life, encouraging people. Without knowing that was my purpose. Needless to say, the confidence simply checks in when needed. Because He is with me!

Almighty Father, i thank you for making my purpose known to me. I know i can do anything through Christ who strengthens me! Open my spiritual ears so i may hear your every whisper. Give me the humility to obey instantly. Amen!
