#NLSundaySchool:- 3 KEY Ways To Fulfilling God’s Destiny & Purpose For Your Life?
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” (Ephesians 2:10)
Your life is not an accident. You have a destiny, one that only you can complete. God knows everything that will happen in your life. He’s not surprised by anything, he knows your days have a destiny. Before you were born, God gave you a unique mixture of spiritual gifts, passions, abilities, personality, and experiences.
There’s no one like you in the entire universe because, infact, there’s no one with your unique mix of talents. It’s why your destiny is so unique. It’s your destiny. Not your mother’s, not your father’s, not your pastor’s. It’s your destiny.
But here’s the painful part, if care is not taken you can miss God’s destiny for your life. People do it all the time. In fact, you can go through your entire life and miss God’s purpose for your life by your own choices. God’s will is not automatic. He allows us to make choices.
Many of the things that happen to you are not God’s perfect will. In life, We all have to choose between God’s will and our own will. It’s highly important that you know that God has a destiny for your life, but he won’t force it on you.
However, Even when you mess up, you can have God’s will for your life. God can turn disaster into destiny. It’s never too late to have His perfect will in your life.
The question you may want to ask at this point is; How do I discover and fulfill God’s purpose for my life?
You don’t have to think too far, here are 3 ways to walk in the path of God’s destiny for your life;
1. WALK: In the discovering and fulfillment of your destiny, you must learn to walk with God. To walk with God means walking according to His word.
From Joshua 1:8, we can point out three powerful things that constitutes walking according to the word of God, they are:
A. CONFESSING the word of God, calling those things that are not as though they were in order to create them.
B. MEDITATING on the word of God and allowing what you meditates to form your character/personality.
C. OBSERVING the word of God, not only to capture what it has for you, but to also obey what you observed from it.
2. RUNNING: Allegorically, running means to engage in warfare; fighting and not getting weary, and never giving up.
When David engaged Goliath in a battle, the bible says he ran towards him. In the pursuit of your destiny, you must realize that warfare is a continuous thing. For any position God will take you to, there will be spiritual opposition to it, and it is through spiritual warfare that you can overcome and move to your next level.
The higher the level, the higher the opposition, the higher the opposition, the higher the grace (God’s ability) to overcome.
3. FLYING: Flying means promotion; a place of reward. Until you walk and run, you cannot fly.
This explains why God doesn’t answer some of our prayers, because most times our requests are all about reward and promotion. We have not considered about WALKING and RUNNING, yet we want to FLY, God cannot allow that to happen because there is high tendency of failure.
If the foundation is faulty, the building will fall! Get your foundation right first by WALKING and RUNNING before considering FYING.
May God guide you through the way, the truth and the right path to the fulfillment of your destiny. AMEN!!!
