DESTINY-ATION 3

Get you out of your country, and from your kindred, and from your father’s house, unto a land I will show you

God. (Genesis 12:1)

Abram’s instruction was to leave not just his home but his country as well, his family. Not so cool, right?
However, before you do anything rash, this was Abram’s instructions not yours but nonetheless we can learn something from it still and note this:

The call always propels you out of your comfort zone.

If your ‘call’ keeps you in the norm, along the lines of what you know and consider familiar or what you feel is feasible, then listen again.

Now notice something peculiar; Abram’s call did not specify his destiny-ation per se, it only made one thing clear, he would have to rely totally on Gods geographical mastery and faithfulness to see this through. So God says go , my friend just go. You don’t have any idea as to where you are going but go. No idea how long it might take, still go. God says,
“Trust me, that is good enough”.

To my folks who are not so sure about where exactly you’re heading to in this ‘destiny’ thing, well things are not as bad as you paint them in fact God is excited to lead you just the way you are. So the answer to your question on how to discover destiny is quite simple:

Trust God. Follow God

Beautiful, ain’t it?
But hey that’s just the call, we ain’t got there yet. Stay put, read on and yeah before I forget the promises that follow this call are always spectacular, something too big to comprehend, too massive to believe but I tell you it is possible. You’ve got God on this one with you.

Seriously read on!

DESTINY-ATION 2

Now this is the point where you might want to get a Bible and read through Genesis 12&13. (I’ll be making a lot of reference to that)

THE CALL

You know that nagging feeling you’ve got in your chest, that certainty that you have what it takes to be great, impactful, that thing that makes you look to the mountain tops and see nothing but possibility; you just know there’s something more and yeah, you can’t shut down that feeling so quit trying because you my friend has heard the call.
“What now?” you say…

I tell you it’s your innate identity calling forth for manifestation. This call leaves you yearning for heights you’ve not yet reached. It promises you the world at your fingertips. When you got it you got it. You can deny it but please don’t numb it, don’t ignore it, now is the time to listen carefully. Suffice me to say that if you go ahead to do something about this without God being involved you might find yourself in a good old shipwreck and oh how great your frustration would be. So please do yourself a favour,

GET GOD INVOLVED

If you have not given your life to Jesus Christ’s care, you desperately need to now. I tell you it was the best decision I ever made and I’m undoubtedly sure that it would be yours too.
(If you have no one who you can talk to immediately, just say the salvation prayer at the top right pane of this page in faith and then you can send us a mail to our official address: christapoet@gmail.com for further questions, prayer or counselling)

So now that you’ve got God in, what you want to do is listen, instructions are on their way.

Stay tuned…

DESTINY-ATION

Watch your thoughts; they become words
Watch your words; they become actions
Watch your actions; they become habits
Watch your habits; they become character
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny
Frank Outlaw

As many times as the word destiny is used, it is quite a shock the number of people who are left clueless at the question of their destiny. Now this ain’t a quick fix so I don’t want you to read this looking for a definite answer to that one question as it applies to you, rather I hope by reading you’ll find yourself  map, because in my opinion as humble as it is I believe you’re in search of not just your destiny but a destination; hence the coinage Destiny-ation.

Now for folks who like my dictionary feel I’m talking about fate and its inevitability: you may not get me. Be aware that I speak of purpose, I speak of a predetermined course that holds the key to your fulfilment as a human being; it is as easy to miss as it is to obtain. Better put, I’d say it is the reason you were created. Many don’t believe in this but history has proved over time that those who don’t have often come to realize at their sunset days that they were dismally wrong.
So yes, we all got a destiny; something we ought to do, someone we ought to be in the nearest future. It is our purpose, it is the reason we breathe, in it lies our fulfilment. The question however that bugs more than a few is how to discover it, to know it, so that one can focus and achieve that one thing that makes all the difference.

In this short series, we look to understand and wield the truth of destiny.
