MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT DIVINE DESTINY (2)
Read- PSALMS 32:8; ISAIAH 45:1-4
Today, we continue by answering a few more questions that lead to misconception about divine destiny.
- Does everybody receive the call of God? Yes, God calls everyone, though how He calls you may be different from how He calls another. After God calls you, He gives you the power of choice to decide whether you will respond to His call or not. This call is not about the call to ministry but the divine calling that God sends your way to call you from a wrong path unto the right path in life. The first call that God has for every human being is a call from darkness unto light. Colossians 1:12-13 tells us we have been delivered from the power of darkness and translated into the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ. Only after this crucial decision can you begin to apprehend God’s plan for you.
- Do I have to be a pastor to fulfil my destiny? No, you do not have to be a pastor but you must become born again in order to be in the right condition to fulfil your destiny. The divine destiny that God has for every human being cannot be fulfilled in a state of enmity with God. When you accept Jesus as your Lord and saviour, i.e. you become born again, you have taken the first step that qualifies you to come into an awareness of God’s plan for your life. After salvation, as you attend church, God intends to train you unto the destiny He has ordained for you.
PRAYER: Lord, I choose to cooperate with Your will for my life. I refuse to run my life on my own terms because I know I was created for Your pleasure. Lead me Lord, I will follow You.
