Divine Destiny Versus
Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified
There’re two destinies for every person that’s born into this world: A natural destiny and a divine destiny. Most people only find themselves fulfilling their natural destinies. Natural destiny is guided and controlled by such factors as lineage and place of birth, where you grew up, and your existential values.
Divine destiny, on the other hand, is the destiny of God in or for a man’s life. It describes the course of events in one’s life, organized or structured by God to fulfil His divine purposes. In fulfilling divine destiny, your life becomes the expression of God’s grace and the unveiling of His love. Some have asked, “How can you tell whether or not one is fulfilling divine destiny?” It’s simple. First, who gets the glory in your life? Whose power is behind what you do? For whom do you live? If the answers to these questions turn out to be the Lord, then you’re in line to fulfilling divine destiny. Along with the foregoing is the specific leading of the Holy Spirit.
Are you treading the path of natural destiny or divine destiny? Divine destiny doesn’t start until you make that divine contact with the Spirit of God. Until Moses encountered Jehovah, his divine destiny didn’t begin. Saul of Tarsus began his divine assignment only after his encounter with the Lord on the Damascus road.
If you’re born again, let the Holy Spirit lead you into the destiny He has for you, and be faithful to fulfil it. (Colossians 4:17). But if you’re yet to be born again, it means you’re only fulfilling natural destiny. Ask the Lord Jesus to come into your heart today and set you on course to fulfil your divine destiny in Him.
I thank you for the blessing of the Word. Your Word, O Lord, is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path! Thank you for the enlightenment your Word brings to my spirit; I’m thoroughly furnished to be all you want me to be and do all you’ve destined me for, by the power of your Spirit and to the praise and glory of your Name,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
