Setting The Course Of Your Destiny

James 3:1-8

God has a plan for every life – we recognize it as destiny). Ephesians1:5 having predestined us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will

Some people dispute predestination, but the Bible is full of this truth.

 God predetermined that through Isaac he would bless all the nations of the world.
 God predetermined Jeremiah to be a prophet to the nations.
 God predetermined Samson to be a judge and a deliverer to Israel.
 God predetermined for John the Baptist to be the forerunner of Jesus.
 God predetermined for Jesus to die for the sins of the world, and to restore what Adam lost.

1 John 3:8 For this purpose the Son of God was manifested that He might destroy the works of the devil. And just as surely God has a perfect and divine plan for your life.

God is a God of destiny and purpose. Everything about God’s dealings with man is connected with purpose. There is a predestination that God has established for every person born, it is that they should be saved, and can be saved, and can be conformed to the image of His Son. But beyond this, there is God’s predetermined plan for your individual life (destiny).

It is a tremendous disappointment to the heart of God, that there are so many who will never fulfill their destiny. We will never find our individual destiny until we have fully embraced our collective destiny. That is to say, unless we act upon the Word of God and seek to be conformed to the image of Jesus, following after Him daily through obedience and faithfulness, God will not reveal more to us if we have not been faithful to do what He has already revealed.

Your destiny is not up to God, or up to the devil. God has already predetermined what He desires for your life. Now it is up to you to set your course for your destiny. We set the course of our destiny with our tongues: Set the course of your destiny by saying about yourself what God has already said about you and you will find yourself moving quickly in the direction of your destiny.
