Read– PHILIPPIANS 3:3-8
THERE ARE DIFFERENT PATHS OF DESTINY and these are in the life of every human being. The purpose of God however, is to get everyone on the divine path that leads to the destination according to His design. In the next few days, we will consider the different paths of destiny.
The first path in the life of every human being is the hidden path which is the path that your hidden destiny is charting for you internally. This path is unspoken, you cannot plot it on a map or on a chart. It is a path inside you that you want to walk after; it hooks to your desires and inclinations to go its way.
Motivational speakers encourage people to go in the direction of their passion and whatever they enjoy. Paul had a passion for killing Christians and he enjoyed it; he was wrong even though he thought he was right. The hidden path inside everybody is charting a path originating from eternity but entering into the realm of time because your spirit and your soul are a part of the eternal part of you. Your body is the only part of you that is in the natural part.
Apostle Paul could have been a priest if all he yielded to was the hidden path of his life. I wanted to be a Catholic priest (because that was the closest thing to a man of God I was familiar with). My desire was swinging towards the field of my destiny.
I believe that almost everybody that founded a false religion had a destiny to be a significant apostle of Jesus but they did not interpret it correctly. Most were not born again, but that destiny pushed them towards God and they fought idolatry. The devil hijacked the force of their destiny and determined what they did, luring them to do something that looked right to them but wrong before God in their destiny.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to interpret the eternal pull of my destiny in Jesus’ name. I reject every plot of the devil to hijack my original destiny in Jesus’ name. Amen!
