Topic: Keys To Fulfilling Destiny
[Seeds of Destiny 27 February 2019 Devotional]
You will never reach your destiny until you stretch your potential.
SCRIPTURE: This I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. Galatians 5:16
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You will never reach your destiny until you stretch your potential.
God’s original intention for creating us is to fulfil His purpose for our lives. The fulfilment of God’s purpose for our lives is the fulfilment of destiny. A life lived according to God’s purpose is a destiny fulfilled. Therefore, it is important to know what we must do in order to fulfil God’s purpose for our lives.
Now, what are the keys to fulfilling destiny?
1. Absolute surrender to the Holy Spirit.
Allow the Holy Spirit to take over your life. You need Him to empower your will so that you will be able to do what you want to do in line with His purpose.
2. Learn to deny yourself.
You must learn to say ‘NO’ to the flesh. You must learn to tell your flesh to do what your spirit wants it to do. When the mind is made up, anything is possible. You can only get the best of your mind when you allow it to work. You will never be able to reach your destiny until you stretch your potential.
3. Surround your life with disciplined people.
Let serious-minded people be your friends (Proverbs 27:17).If you are surrounded with unserious and undisciplined people who lack self-control, your life will also turn out exactly the same way as theirs. Wrong information from the wrong association can affect your life negatively.
Beloved, make up your mind to fulfil God’s purpose for your life by being absolutely surrendered to the Holy Ghost. Deny yourself and surround yourself with disciplined people.
Remember this: You will never reach your destiny until you stretch your potential.
1.Consciously bring your will under the control of the Holy Spirit.
2.Deny yourself the wrong things of life and associate only with people who are disciplined.
PRAYER: O Lord, give me the grace to deny myself the wrong things of life. Help me to be totally yielded to the leading of the Spirit, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
