Bridge Into Destiny!

 

You have a destiny to fulfill!  You have a purpose to achieve! Yes, there are countless waiting for that very first step! Wait a minute!!! Several steps have already been taken. When? Where? How?

sb-quotes-a-bridgeThe writer of the script of your life put things in motion even when you were not aware you had destiny to fulfill!

Friends, Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you. Before you were born I sanctified you.  I ordained you a prophet  to the nations”. Can you beat that? No, I guess not! Destiny is been fulfilled even while you were in vitro.  From your birth till this moment everything created has been moving you towards your divine purpose!

You see , you and I had to garner some experiences along the way, some pain, discipline, character, heartache too, here and there to prepare us for this moment! This moment that we just became aware of who we are as Christ redeemed,  important part in the agenda of heaven! Everything that you have heard, seen and experienced is in the reservoir of armory / resources available to draw from to help another even as you move closer to ultimate fulfillment by the help of the Holy Spirit residing in you.

Every encounter with another is an opportunity to add into the armory of knowledge.  At the time we might not know, think or imagine, but God knows.

Some years back, I had just had my son with some complication at birth. I was at a Church service and heard give your son to the woman behind you. I was like what? Give that child to the woman to hold the voice responded! I didn’t know who was sitting behind me, how can I just ask a stranger to hold my child? Countless thoughts bounced through my mind. Then I thought Oh! maybe she has anointing to heal my son in her hands, I quickly turned and held out my son and told her God said I should give my son to you, she streched out her hands and held him for a while and that was it.

I can’t remember ever seeing her again since that day, and I didn’t see any dramatic change in my son either. Then few months down the road she was one of those dedicating children that very Sunday, her testimony was shared. Alas she had been praying for her own child for many years, waiting on the Lord ! It dawned on me then that it was not about my son.  It was about my ears been trained to hear,to discern the voice of God, my heart obeying, her receiving her own promise / confirmation from God that she will yet hold her own son and many more.

Just this past year I reminded her about that faithful day about nine years ago. What am I getting at here? Without your express knowledge God is always at work, working out His good pleasure through you. Philippians 2 : 13 For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

I pray Oh Lord that today, you in your Sovereignty bridge the gap between where we are now and where you want Us to be. Send us helpers of destiny that has destiny to fulfill themselves for your glory. Give us avenues to expressly manifest your greatness, the greatness you put inside of US all. May we not think too highly of ourselves even as you manifest your power by your Holy Spirit through US. May we never forget that you, Most High God, is the source of our being and may all glory, honor and adoration be yours Lord, eternity unending in Jesus mighty name I pray! Amen

 

Carriers of Good News!!

harvestLuke 4:43 But he said, “I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent.”

Our Lord Jesus after healing many went to a solitary place to commune with The Everlasting Father, however the “people were looking for him and tried to “keep” him from leaving. In the journey of life, the fulfillment of God ordained destiny I want you my friends to know that there will always be issues that will want to keep us from walking according to the agenda of heaven. There will always be people, situations and circumstances that will want to hinder us from walking in the fullness of our God ordained destiny.

We all have been commissioned to preach the gospel and make disciples of all nations. Our Lord Jesus stated emphatically the above passage that he was not only to heal and deliver in Capernaum, a city in Galilee, but also to bring liberty to other towns.

Are you saved? I mean born again, redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ and heaven bound? Transformed by the renewing of your mind? What are you waiting for? We are to work together to bring this good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the other towns – other people, culture, tribes and so on. It start from our homes, parishes, churches of course and it spread to the ends of the earth.

What are those things that constitute hindrances? People and things that might want to keep us from destiny? Challenges of life, health, finances, material and marital. There are countless issues that will mitigate against us. We however have to learn to stay focus and carry our cross. Jesus Christ was rejected in Nazareth by his own community, he did not let that stop him from going to Capernaum and other cities with the good news.

Friends, we have to be resilient in the pursuit of our destiny carrying our crosses trusting wholly in Him who has saved us. He wants to come back to receive us to himself however there is so many more nations and people that has to come to the knowledge of him before he can come back to reign on earth. The whole nations of the earth and people have to hear the gospel .which we have been charged to deliver

Do we even care that tonnes are dying in their sins and countless living without hope. You and I have unique gift-ens  to reach out to various others with the gospel of repentance and salvation by faith in the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. What are you doing about it? What am I doing with that which God has entrusted to me?

This is the hour, the season to rise up in faith and the power of the Holy Spirit to do the Fathers bidding. Arise and shine for the light has come and the spirit of God has risen upon you. You must share this good news come what may. You’ll find out that the moment you step out in obedience, opportunity and grace will align to give utmost pleasure to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Will you partner with God today? Those personal issues will be resolved, trust God. Paul the apostle had no wife or kid and yet had a thorn, how much more you and I with spouses, children, siblings and so on. With this thorn he preached the gospel, pull down strongholds of ignorance and built an enduring legacy that we are living on even now. What will be said about you and I? Will our excuses stand on that day.

Friends, let us do the work of our Savior with utmost urgency and singleness of purpose. Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and every other thing shall be added unto you.

Everlasting Father, we ask that you will strengthen us by your Holy Spirit in our inner man, that we might know the purpose for which you have called us. Give us courage and boldness to stand with you. We pray that we will be compassionate towards those that are suffering and clueless of your saving grace, warning them of the wages of sin and the need for faith in Jesus Christ. In Jesus mighty name we pray and receive. Amen
