The Light Daily Devotional – Understanding Destiny
Focus: Understanding Destiny
The word for today
Destiny is a predetermined or foreordained condition by the will of God. You will only find the life God wants to give you by understanding that you have a destiny!
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5 NKJV
You have a destiny! The fact that your existence was never your idea makes it very imperative for you to do the will of God. The beauty of a man’s life is the conformity of his life to God’s master plan for him. Joseph aligned his life according to God’s will for him and fulfilled his destiny. Queen Esther also cooperated with God, and she became what she was destined to become.
The Lord has ordained you to fulfill a course in destiny, and this will only be possible when you deny yourself and do the will of God at all costs. When you circumvent the will of God through human wisdom, it is a sale of destiny. It is also an act of rejecting the life God wants to give you (in terms of your job, career, spouse, legacy, location, or anything else). Till this very time, we don’t know to what extent God wants to use Gehazi if he hadn’t traded his destiny.
The best you can be is to be who God wants you to be. Whatever you do or become through unrighteousness is never the will of God for your life, and such a path leads to destruction.
Is your life according to the pattern ordained by God?
Prayer: Lord! I will not miss out on destiny, and my life will not be alien to your ordained pattern for me, in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: There will be a large deviation between the life God wants to give and what your life will turn out to be if you fail to do God’s will!
Have an inspired week ahead!
