Destined for Greatness are big words, wouldn't you agree? Most of us would not consider
ourselves ever destined for greatness but the Lord says we are!
Deut. 28: 1
And it will be, if you will listen diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, to observe to do all HIS commandments which I command you this day, that the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth!
Those are powerful words from our God almighty. The context is talking about our blessings as the people of God. Now I know your flesh is telling you that there is no way you should be above all the nations. So let me ask you this... if the bible is for all men who would believe God, if he is not man that he can lie, if you are saved and believe with all your heart that Jesus came to die on the cross for you.... WHY CAN'T YOU BE DESTINED FOR GREATNESS?!
You were made in the image of God. You are destined by God for his purposes under heaven. Each of us have a calling on our lives that bring us to our own individual fullness through God the creator. When you see yourself, it is important that you see who you are through GOD's eyes. Who you are, was designed and cultivated long ago. God sees the end from the beginning. So, it is without question he knew who you would become. Some of us follow our destinies perfectly, they know their calling and they follow without hesitation.
But what if you don't know your calling... or you do, but you have no direction or understanding how to get there?
Revelation 4:1 says;
After these things I looked, and there was a door that was opened in heaven and the first voice which I heard speaking with me was like a shofar saying, "You must come up here and I shall show you what must happen after these things."
John is narrating this portion of the scripture, he then receives great revelation from God. I don't know about you but that tells me that God showed him the things to come. Not because John was so special but because he moved in God's spirit and glory. It is exactly what he calls all of us to do. Once Jesus died on the cross he offered all of us the opportunity to have a relationship with the Father that included the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He is our helper our comforter and the mind of Christ in us when we accept Jesus as our Savior.
God is deliberate in his actions and knowledge of the things to come. You have been made deliberately for the plan, purpose and will of the Father. You have been searching for the reason to this life. GOD has it! He rejoices at the very mention of your name! God is almighty but he is love and filled with great grace to find him where ever you feel you are in life.
The best thing about God is that he is full of intentions for your life! At the beginning of time, he knew he would create you for such a time as this, mindful of your place and position to be made in the image of the most high God for a plan and a purpose under heaven. There is nothing about you he didn't know ... and yet most of us think we are alone. Alone in mind, body and spirit. Yet, that is a fallacy, Placed there by a corrupt and torturous being called the enemy. His divine purpose, spoiled thousands upon thousands of years ago so he seeks to destroy yours as well!
The enemy has no lot in life. His purposes destroyed by his own actions, yet from your childhood he plots and plans your demise. The first thing he attacks viciously and with malice and forethought is your destiny in God. If he can divide you from the calling of God on your life he can derail the possibilities of a future that is both noble and good. He can rise out of you doubt and unbelief to the point that you would never believe that God's intended purpose for you ever existed.
I am here to tell you that it is a lie from the pit of Hell. God's plan is ALWAYS for your good. He lavishes upon his servants that which they could not believe themselves they deserve... HIS great pleasure!
Your dreams are doors that HE intends from the beginning of your life to build on and create in you someone special. Beautifully and wonderfully made for His creation! The Enemy cannot create, only destroy. Your belief that you were never made for anything special is a complete and total lie from the enemy. God can create in you the exact plan that is the most fulfilling to you. It will fill you up and take into account all your hopes and dreams. At that point God then takes you further and bigger than what you thought you could ever accomplish.
Let me conclude, that your destiny was made by God for God & the Kingdom for which you are called.
There is no other entity in this universe that knows you beyond what the Father sees in you. Your potential grand and your savior waiting in the wings to take on the massive destiny that lies before you. There is light at the end of your tunnel! It affords you great honor and hope to be the person you were created to be ... Divinely destined, Upright in your calling and filled with the Holy Spirit to be your guide. Gifts are just one part of your calling. God has the other in his hand.
How you use and develop yourself is all part of Gods plan. Destiny is calling! Get out your book and let God begin to write the story that is YOU and ONLY YOU. He has a great plan and a wonderful path to take you down. My God is great and a glorious God and he does NOT design destinies halfway. They are to the fullest extent he can think of... Dream BIG!
Never allow your path to cross what doesn't belong to you. By that, I mean the enemies lies.
It is NONE of his business. You are not the reject he would have you believe, but so, so, much more . YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL and filled with His purposes and love. There is NOTHING GOD can not make right in your life. NOTHING that is to hard God cannot fix! YOUR life means something that no one else can fill for HIM. He made you uniquely gifted, and he is calling you to your rightful place next to him.
Allow God to transform you and fill you with his love and hope for the future he desires for you.
This is not a test, it is a decision to be made from your core. You have to make the decision with your will, your mind and emotions. ALL IN ... as they say.
If you struggle with heartbreak, he can restore that which was lost. It is His right and His love for you that bring you to him. He can change everything. Dig in deep my friend, and see what God has been waiting to do in your life since you were born. There is nothing deeper or stronger or has more grace for you to grow in... than His love. Do not sit there in devastation and not ask God for HIS help.
He loves you and there is nothing more pure than the love of the Father to His child. There is destiny in your way... will you capture it? Will you follow the path to an almighty God that will fight for the very breath you breathe. You have been called and you have been found complete in the Father.
ALL you are and all you should be is in the Father that cries out for your holiness to reach him. He is your ultimate destiny. He is your riches in glory. Come find what the Father says when he reveals you are Destined for GREATNESS!
