Topic: Understanding Destiny [Wednesday April 4, 2018]
Scripture: For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11.
Thought For The Day: The right mentality is key to destiny fulfilment.
It is important to know that Destiny is one of the most misunderstood subjects today. Some people think that destiny means fate or misfortune. That is, whatever happens to a person is his destiny. For example, when a man marries and his wife runs away from him or he has an accident and one of his legs is amputated, people think that that is his destiny. No! far from it.
Destiny is not fate or misfortune. Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that whatever is evil cannot be of God; if it is not peaceful, it cannot be God and if it is not what is expected, it cannot be of God.
Now, we shall look at one key fact about destiny and man’s creation which is: man’s creation is God’s Decision and Design.
This means, your creation is God’s Decision and Design. Before God formed you, He knew you (Jeremiah 1:5).
This also implies that no one on earth is an accident of creation; you are not a biological accident. Even an illegitimate child who was born out of wedlock or a child whose parents are unknown is not an accident of creation. Even if your parents had told you that they had stopped child bearing before you came unexpectedly, still, you are not an accident of creation. Your parents might not have planned you but God planned and created you. This is very important because the right mentality is key to destiny fulfilment.
My counsel is, equip yourself with the mentality that you are God’s decision and design; this will make you pursue and fulfil your destiny.
Remember this: The right mentality is key to destiny fulfilment.
1. Debunk every negative information or misconception about your birth and creation.
2. Decide to understand what God said about you in His Word; believe it and pursue it.
Prayer: O Lord, equip me with the right mentality concerning your purpose for my life, in Jesus’ Name.
