We have a glorious destiny in God. As a child of God, you are destined for greatness. It is inevitable.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. (Jeremiah 29:11 KJV)
I am thinking of you, saith the Lord! The thoughts I have about you are thoughts of peace, not of evil…
Pastor, you don’t have an idea of my situation. How can you say God’s thoughts for me are good?
I just committed an abortion.
I just got jilted.
I have suicidal tendencies.
I have delay in marriage
I am divorced.
I was raped once.
I cheated on my spouse.
My father sexually abused me.
I was abused by my cousins.
My boyfriend of three years just walked away and abandoned me after sleeping with me several times.
I am a coded commercial sex worker. I have to survive.
In my family, women don’t get married, and if they do, they pack out of their matrimonial homes.
In my family, nobody lives past 50
In my family, we have a history of Diabetes.
My mum died of cancer, and now I have lumps in my breasts.
I cannot stop masturbating.
I am born again, but I am into oral with my boyfriend.
I keep dildos in my handbag.
I cannot stop Jeru trap!
… and so on and so forth!
The situations are as seemingly hopeless as they are numerous! But all these situations do not change God’s dispositions one bit!
Listen to me, all that has happened to you, every ugly happenstance that seemed a stain on your destiny…all of them happened because of a glorious destiny!
Listen to this carefully, the devil only fights what he fears! The intensity of the fiery trial you have been through is a pragmatic indication of the greatness that lied ahead of you!
Do you remember Yahushua Mashiach / Christ? As soon as his star shone at birth, the devil moved in through Herod to try and destroy him! Remember Joyce Meyer? Her father slept with her several times as a teenager, but she wouldn’t allow that to stop her! Today, she is a mender of souls in the very area she was once broken.
The devil has a way of locating a bright destiny, he is not all-knowing or omniscient, but he is vastly experienced having been around for thousands of years!
Now, when you are up against a devil that is experienced with an organised hierarchy of demonic powers and principalities, who can see you but you cannot see, it is the highest level of foolishness to say that you don’t need God here on earth!
You see, embracing God by accepting His son into your life as your personal savior and getting filled with the Holy Ghost changes all the equation!
Listen to me, your future is so bright, you need a sunglasses!
When you come to know Yahushua, you come into grace! There is something called grace that makes God to forgive and forget your past! As in, he forgets about your past!
And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. (Hebrews 10:17 KJV)
Look at the Message translation:
He concludes, I’ll forever wipe the slate clean of their sins. (Hebrews 10:17 Message)
When you come to God, He gives you a fresh start. You have a clean slate! That is difficult to swallow, but that is exactly what happens.
Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it! (2 Corinthians 5:17 Message)
Listen to me; don’t tamper with the process of God by going back into the past again. If you don’t let go of the past, the new will become jeopardised. Grace makes you to appear before God as if you have never done any of those sorry pasts!
Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert (Isaiah 43:18-19 KJV)
Let the former things go. Let the old habits die. Leave that partner in sin. That is how to let go. Leave that colleague alone who is not your spouse. Stop the amorous expressions of feelings in the office and focus on your spouse. That is how the new life will burgeon. Stop living in that guy’s place who is not yet your husband.
“Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand–new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? There it is! I’m making a road through the desert, rivers in the badlands (Isaiah 43:18-19 Message)
God is about to do something new in your life, but don’t keep going over old history.
He tells you to be alert! Stay away from sin. Don’t go back there again.
Then He says be present. Don’t be missing in action. Read your Bible daily. Use this space (FOC) daily. Cooperate with my plan.
I see a brand new thing that God is doing in your life. He will make you to forget the shame of your youth. It is a new day for you. Be committed to your spiritual progress.
You see it now. God doesn’t hate you. It is the devil that hates you and wants you to hate God. But it is foolhardy to quarrel with your maker. You don’t quarrel with the Almighty, you align yourself and let the process of a glorious life emerge in you! Believe it, He has made all things new for you! Hallelu’YAH! It is a new day for you!
