God wants you to live in the destiny He’s prepared for you. No matter how interested you are in living out His destiny for your life, God is exponentially more interested. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been on a quest for your destiny for years, only just begun, or never thought about it before; God has a destiny planned just for you!
Destiny is considered a course of events that will be defined by the end result. What does God want the end result of your life to be?
God’s destiny for your life is your receiving salvation through Jesus Christ. “ For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:9
So the question is, Are you living in the destiny God has planned for you? Are you living in the place of deliverance from wrath? Are you living in salvation through Jesus Christ.
God says in Romans 3:23, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” That means you cannot come into God’s presence on your own. There is no merit to enter God’s place of perfection on your own. Unless the course of your life is altered, the wrath of God will be your final destiny. Romans 6:23 says the wages of sin is death (wrath), but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ.
Your destiny depends on what you do with the gift of God, Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ was God, yet He decided to come to earth as a man in the form of a baby. When he was on earth, he lived a perfect life. He always obeyed the law of God. He had no sin, separation from God, until the day He hung on the cross and became the punishment for your sin. The disobedience in your life that separates you from God, was laid upon Him. Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried, and rose from the dead. It is Jesus Christ’s life, death, burial, and resurrection that makes the destiny of your life possible. (Philippians 2:5-11, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Isaiah 53:5, 1 Corinthians 15:4)
Without the shedding of blood there is no taking away of sin. God accepted the shedding of Jesus’ blood as payment for your sin. The question is, do you? Are you confident that Jesus Christ is your destiny? Are you assured the way to God’s destiny for your life is believing on the Son of God to take away the sins in your life that separate you from God? (Hebrews 9:22, 1 Corinthians 15:22, Hebrews 11:6)
God willingly gave His only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him would not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) The destiny God has planned for you is everlasting life. It is deliverance from the wrath of God, punishment of God, separation from God. “ For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Thessalonians 5:9
