All of us have Seasons of Destiny in life. We have dreams and visions of what we would like to do and become for God while here on this earth. Some of you are walking in your Season of Destiny right now. You are exactly where God wants you to be…in the center of His will and purposes doing exactly what you were destined to do and to be. But others may say, “I don’t know what my Destiny really is and I don’t know how to recognize it.” God has always had a purpose for you…even before you were born. In Jeremiah 1:5, God’s Word states, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.” You have to always maintain your Faith to believe that God is “working ALL things for good to those who love Him and who are called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28-30). When you seek God first and commit your destiny and dreams to Him, His plans will unfold one step at a time. Learning to rest in Christ and leaning not on your own understanding will surely bring a lot of peace and resolve to your heart, mind and spirit. In God’s timing, your Destiny, Dreams and Desires will unfold if you maintain a tender, humble heart with a teachable spirit toward Him. I’ve learned to pay close attention to the “stirring in my heart.” If it’s in agreement with scripture, that’s where I know I can find God.
A “Season of Destiny” is God’s purpose for you while you are in a particular season of your life. Every season has a destiny connected with it. Your destiny unfolds along each journey of life. Your “Total” destiny is the combination of ALL the Seasons of Life you’ve gone through. It includes the people you’ve influenced and others that have influenced you. At different stages of life is God’s unfolding of your destiny for that season. Whether you’re a young adult, a single parent, a married couple with children or a grandparent, be faithful over the season you’re in now. Discover God’s purposes for that season, step into your dreams and walk in His purpose. That is where you will receive your fulfillment and begin to bear fruit for the Lord.
However, Seasons change! When you are sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit in your life and situations, it will be like a barometer that lets you know if your season is changing or not. Everyone needs keen sensitivity in life whether it is in relationships, family, career, ministry, health or emotional needs. We become better Christians from experiences we encounter along life’s journey. Always remember that if God is pressing you, it builds character! When life’s situations begin to change around you, it may be an indication that God is at work in your Destiny.
2012 is a New Year and a New Beginning! God is calling each of us this year to step into the dreams, callings and desires that He has given us. Your Season of Destiny means that you are making a difference right where you are now. Look around and see where you’re planted at this time in your life. It’s time to gird up with Faith and a knowing in your heart to understand that God indeed has a plan and purpose for your life. As you become sensitive to the Holy Spirit, He will daily lead and direct your life’s journey.
“Happy New Year” Everyone! May God’s richest blessings be your portion with a brand new beginning and purpose-filled destiny like no other. I’m praying that you will begin to find favor where you work, live and worship. My prayer for you is that God will open doors and allow your dreams and purposes to become a reality as you Step into your Season of Destiny in 2012!
