Your Destiny, Your Choice
In Christian circles, people often speak of "your destiny" or God's plan for your life. Many people fail to realize that God's plan for each and everyone one of us is different. There is a God-given calling or plan for every single person. That calling was placed on you and I even before we were born. That's right… God has placed a specific calling on your life. But there is an incredibly stark reality that we need to grasp concerning this calling. The fact is that if you do not answer and fulfill that call, God will raise someone else up to fulfill it. Look at the words of Mordecai to Esther as he pleads with her to go before the king on behalf of their people. "For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews FROM ANOTHER PLACE" (Esther 4:14 ). Without question, God WILL carry out His plans and purposes on the earth… which leaves us with only one question: will you be a part of that plan and purpose, who will you toss aside your God-given destiny and thereby allow another person to fulfill your purpose, plan and destiny? Yes, what I am saying is that you and I can absolutely lose or miss our destiny by refusing to submit ourselves to God's master plan. God will not force you to follow Him, but He is going to move forward, with or without you.
