Discovering Our Destiny In God

Updated on August 15, 2011


Our destiny in God is like a huge picture puzzle. Like the puzzle, the picture comes in many small pieces. We need to be patient to correctly connect and place each piece together. Unfortunately, with the destiny pieces, they are not located in one box or even in one location, but they are discovered as we travel along the road of destiny.

As we walk the pathway of our life in God, we will find more and more of our destiny pieces in which we have to fit together in the right places. The decoding of our destiny is dependent on our life of faith. God in His ways does not reveal all in one go, but tells us enough to move forward and keep us dependent on Him at the same time. The main thing here is faith.

The bible says that God told Abraham to get up, leave the place where he was, and go the place where God would show him (Genesis 12:1-3). All God said was go! The bible doesn't indicate God saying turn left here, turn right here, travel 5 miles in this direction. Abraham was given one instruction, to go. Abraham believed God and set out on his journey with his close family not knowing where he was going. After passing through various cities and dealing with various issues on the way, Abraham ends up in the land promised to him by God. He was divinely lead by God Almighty

It was the faith inside of Abraham, with which he believed God, that directed him through the wilderness of the unknown to his destined place. Abraham had to be dependent on God because only God knew where he was meant to be going. It is the same with us. We are to hear God, obey Him and move with what He has revealed to us, and as we make progress He will reveal more. When God says get up and go, it's our time to move, even if we don't have all the details yet.


Believing God has our destiny in His hands, and has the power and wisdom to cause us to reach there in His perfect timing, is to be our foundation for success. One of the problems God has in telling us all the details of who we are going to become, where we are going, and the great impact we will do, is that we will naturally want to take the responsibility of performing God's word in our strength. We will try to make God's Word come to pass with our limited mind and ability, and a lot of us will even try doing it without Him completely. But God says ‘My ways are not Your ways and My thoughts are not your thoughts (Isaiah 55:8-9). In another words, the way we plan to do it is not the way He has planned it do be done. And that’s it right there. What we are planning, God has already planned before the foundation of the world. In fact, the bible says in Isaiah that He sets the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10). In other words, He finishes what He wants to do, then starts on it. He determines the outcome and then begins the process.

When God had already determined our destiny, He then breathed us into being at our conception with our destiny trapped on the inside of us. This is why our discovery of it is truly dependent on ability to hear and obey Him because only God knows why we are here on earth, and what He had in mind when He created us. He knows how He has designed us to function so we need the original manufacture, God, to reveal to us how we should operate for optimum potential. The more we travel with Him, the more our eyes will open up and see it. The treasure is within us and only God has the keys to unlock it.
