#1. DESTINY DEFINITION
- Your destiny was designed before you were ever born
Destiny according to some people, is a path designed for an individual before that person is born.
This school of thought emphasizes the fact that one’s destiny is set by a force greater than all else, which is God. The individual is not in control of whatever is happening in his life. Everything that happens was destined to happen. So every situation is accepted with gratitude, belief, and conviction that it’s coming from God.
==> Advantages of this school of thought
- The individual lives a stress-free life and is content with his past, current and future results. There is peace of mind health conditions related to stress are quite favorable.
- They believe in the presence of a Creator
==> Disadvantage of this school of thought
- The individual tends to be content in their comfort zone.
- They easily give in or give up
- They are less ambitious.
- They don’t believe in reiterated efforts.
- At the sight of any difficulty, or after the first unsuccessful attempt, they let go.
Others believe that this life is a game of chance.
They don’t know where they come from, what they are doing here on earth, or where they are heading to. They make each day count according to their strengths and weaknesses.
==> Advantage of this school of thought
- Individual believes in hard work and reiterated efforts. They have great ambitions and take measures to achieve.
- They believe their life is entirely in their hands and they can do with it as it pleases them. They think life ends here and there is no afterlife.
- They don’t believe in the presence of the God.
Another group of people believes that their destiny lies in their hands, and they have the free will to do whatever they want to do and becomewhoever they want to become.
They don’t believe there is a handwriting on the wall that describes in great details what their life is meant to be. That handwriting is actually theirs, and they are the architect of their own future.
==> Advantage of this school of thought
- They believe in the existence of a Creator who has given them the free will to design their own life
- They are very hardworking and ambitious set of individuals
- It is difficult to identify one.
You might be asking yourself, which of these schools of thoughts are correct?
#2. WHAT IS DESTINY?
It seems to me we have been identifying schools of thoughts without necessarily understanding what DESTINY really means.
All the concepts presented above consider DESTINY as a MEANS TO AN END. How we will live (MEANS) to accomplish our ambitions. Future events that will lead to our future success or failures. In other words-fate.One of the definitions of Destiny I encountered in Google Search was:
”the events that will necessarily happen to a particular person or thing in the future.”
All the definitions of destiny are similar; they all refer to future events. And these events are uncertain. What if we have been defining ‘Destiny’ wrongly? What if destiny is referring to a FUTURE CERTAIN EVENT?
I do not have answers as to which concept is correct. But I can provide quotes from the most reliable book on this universe which will guide your understanding about destiny. Let the spirit guide you to make your own reliable conclusions.
#3. WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT DESTINY
Death is the destiny of all the wicked, of all those who reject God
The destiny of the Wicked and of the Good. Don’t be worried on account of the wicked: don’t be jealous of those who do wrong
Everything the Lord has made has its destiny; the destiny of the wicked is destruction.
The Destiny of the Righteous. But righteous people are protected by God and will never suffer torment.
The destiny of the wicked. The ungodly, however, will get the punishment their wicked thoughts deserve, because they rebelled against the Lord and ignored what was right.
We place our destiny in the hands of the Lord, not in human hands because his mercy is as great as hismajesty.
Lord, I know that none of us are in charge of our own destiny: none of us have control over our own life
In those days ten foreigners will come to one Jew and say, ‘We want to share your destiny because we have heard that God is with you.”
#4. UNDERSTANDING WHAT DESTINY REALLY IS
Needless to elaborate further.
The Bible attributes destiny to WHAT HAPPENS TO US AFTER DEATH, NOT WHILE WE LIVE. DEATH is certain, but how we live is UNCERTAIN.
DESTINY IS OUR REWARD FOLLOWING THE LIFE WE HAVE LED. Destiny is not becoming a lawyer or the president of a nation and other future possible/necessary events that all definitions tend to portray.
We have to live our lives preparing to face our destiny (OUR REWARD), because the destiny of all the wicked is destruction, and that of the righteous is eternity.
The awareness of the purpose of our existence here on this earth completely eliminates a significant amount of anxiety:
- no need to compete with others because each person has a completely different talent,
- you have free will to choose whatever you want to do with your life and bring out the best in you. Your choices, however, are conditioned by the obligation to remain righteous to achieve the ultimate goal (DESTINY) of ‘GOING HOME ONE DAY’.
It took me more than 30 years to understand this fundamental truth about my life. Yes. I only found out in 2017.
I kept asking myself what my true purpose on this earth was. I became easily anxious and constantly depressed because I wasn’t sure about anything I was doing.
My quest for happiness led me to those Bible verses I’ve just shared with you. This was indeed a breakthrough moment for my unconditional happiness, peace of mind and focus. All my anxieties have been completely blown away because now I know where I stand, and where I’m heading to:
Which is using my God-given talents and freedom, becoming the unique person I was born to be, without jeopardizing my righteousness. I must be loyal to God.
When you remain connected with your Creator, everything you touch will flourish, because even your failures will work in your favor. This spiritual bond, as this video suggests, is the ONLY SURE PATH TO SUCCESS AND DESTINY.
REMAIN BLESSED IN CHRIST JESUS
