The Calling of Your Destiny

August 13, 2020

Ephesians 1:9-12

Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 10That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: 11In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: 12That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.

The Calling of Your Destiny

              What great things lie ahead for those that are walking with God in this hour and time.   Doors are about to open that were never dreamed of and your potential in Christ has never been greater than it is at this moment.  If we settle for less than God’s best and His highest for us then we, in affect, are forsaking and selling our birthright even as Esau did.  This is not the hour to forsake the Lord or to stray from Him.  It is an hour to draw near with all of your heart, your mind, your soul and your strength.  What is coming forth in the earth will require a people who are walking in the Spirit and living out of the divine nature of Christ.  What God wants to bring forth through His people is not a work produced by flesh.  It is not larger, prettier buildings, better programs or outward showings.  It is a manifestation of Himself through His people.  It will be a move of God brought forth through a people that are fulfilling their destiny in Him.  If we find we have settled for less and sold our birthright we will mourn deeply the loss.  Hebrews 12:15-17 says, “15Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; 16Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. 17For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.” 

              This is not an hour to compromise our faith and the high calling we have in Christ Jesus.  It is an hour to draw nigh and ready our hearts before Him in humility and repentance.  It grieves the heart of God that He speaks the Words of life to us, we may say our amen, but then we turn, go our way and so quickly forget our instruction and exhortation.  James 1:22-25 says, “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” 

              It is important that in every facet of our life we have our eyes fixed upon Jesus.  He is not just the religious or spiritual part of our life.  He is our life.  He is not just a compartment in our lives; He is the whole package.  All that we are and all that we are becoming is through Him and in Him.  If you want to fulfill your destiny in Christ then move and live and have your being in Him.

Blessings,
