Your Destiny has been Decided.

Everything has already been decided. It was known long ago what each person would be. So there’s no use arguing with God about your destiny.

‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭6:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I am always asking God to help me fulfill my purpose, sometimes even asking him what my destiny is. I guess we have a tendency to think that we can choose our own destiny or somehow screw it up if we are not perfect along the way. Ecclesiastes says otherwise. Everything has already been decided. Every job we apply for. Every relationship we pray about. The future we struggle with has already been decided.

A great example of this is your family. Were you ever asked what type of family you would like to be in? What part of the world you would like to be born in? How many siblings you would like to have?

Nope! You weren’t asked a single thing in regards to the family, culture, or nation that would best suit you to fill the call of God on your life. You were chosen to be a citizen of the country you live in. Your gender was chosen for you. Your family was chosen for you. Your looks and personality were chosen for you. And your destiny was chosen for you.

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.

Psalm 139:16

God choosing our destiny and planning out our days is an exciting relief! We do not have to strive to become something we are not. We only have to rest in the Lord and trust that He is leading and guiding us to fill the ministry He’s given us.

Takeaway:

You cannot be someone else other than yourself. You cannot for fill someone else’s destiny. Be content with who you are and what you have. It is good to look forward to what God has in store. I believe if you look to him in faith you will be surprised at the good He has planned just for you!
