God has a plan, a purpose and a destiny for each one of our lives…
New Living Translation (NLT)
16 You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.
17 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.
They cannot be numbered!
In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will.
For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
God’s way ALWAYS follows the path of faith, trust and absolute reliance upon the reliability and trustworthiness of God’s word and the leading of the Holy Spirit, day by day, moment by moment, and step-by-step!
And God’s timing is ALWAYS much different than ours.
Where as we always want things to happen yesterday and are always looking for the path of least resistance; from God’s point of view, your current path that’s fraught with challenges, obstacles, trials and tribulations, is the training ground that God is using to prepare you for your future destiny.
For Joseph, it took 13 years of first being sold into slavery by his brothers, then being falsely accused of a crime he did not commit, and being thrown into prison!
16 Moreover He called for a famine in the land;
He destroyed all the provision of bread.
17 He sent a man before them—
Joseph—who was sold as a slave.
18 They hurt his feet with fetters,
He was laid in irons.
19 Until the time that his word came to pass,
The word of the Lord tested him.
20 The king sent and released him,
The ruler of the people let him go free.
21 He made him lord of his house,
And ruler of all his possessions,
22 To bind his princes at his pleasure,
And teach his elders wisdom.
Now mind you, to the extent we don’t walk with God, by faith and obedience to His Word; when we instead take our little rabbit trails, asserting our own will and our own way ahead of God’s, doing our own thing, or worse walking in out right disobedience, this is the nature of what sin is; and it is also what will either permanently sidetracked and most certainly, at the very least, delay our progress towards our God given destiny, until such time as we repent.
This pilgrimage that we are on is most certainly an Adventure of a lifetime, one for which we each have been made for; but it requires of necessity that we travel our path in cooperation and union with God, by faith, walking and being in communion with Him, through the Holy Spirit, moment by moment, and step-by-step.
So are you game, are you ready for this Grand Adventure or not?
You totally should make the decision today, because you may not be here tomorrow!
Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Savior
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD!
