Every person born has a destiny. Each of us was created with a purpose. And no one is ever born a mistake. We are all born planned, and purposed by God, and each of us was born, as the bible says, “for such a time as this.”
We are born in the time, location, family, and circumstance we were chosen for. God has personally designed us for the season in which we live and no other. The whole concept of bing born “in the wrong century” is completely wrong. We were born for this time and for this season. Unfortunately we tend to screw things up. We have chosen to go our own way, and do what we “feel” is right for us, and we have totally screwed up our world, our families, and our lives. God never intended us to live this way. But our choices to live our way have led us to it.
We were chosen and designed by God and planned from before the world was formed. Scripture says “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. “ And He chose us for a purpose. Tbhe bible also states “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Our chose is whether we live out our plans for our life, or discover and fulfil our destiny.
God designed each of us with a plan in mind. “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” And we can never reach our destiny unless we connect with God. A friend of mine says it this way, “We all have a unique song to sing, and only we can sing it, and the greatest tragedy is for us to die and the world never hears our song.” We each have a purpose, song, and no one else can live it out for us. And our song was meant to be sung in this time. And most of us carry our song to the grave never having sung it, or even learning what our song is.
In order for us to find out our destiny we have to come to know personally the one who created us and planned us. Without that we can never know the reason why we are here. Only as we come to know our creator will we come to know and fulfil our destiny. There is no other way. To put this in familiar terms, this is Christianity. Coming to personally know our God and Savior, letting him touch our lives, find his purpose and live it out each and everyday. Doing that with other fellow believers in a nutshell is Christianity. Not the rules and regulations the church has spouted for generations. We can never know, or achieve our destiny based on our merit. Only by coming to know our designer, and following His direction for our lives can we ever truly “Be all we can be.”
