Destiny Pt.2

Destiny is discovering God's purpose for your life that will outlive you and leave a legacy. You have to have an Encounter with God in order to know your true Destiny. Not just an experience because many can have an experience and not be moved or changed, but you can never have a true Encounter with God and not be changed, delivered, healed, and made whole!
Destiny is more than the promises for your life, but rather the Purpose of your life. Destiny is not a moment, but a journey that takes a lifetime to achieve. True destiny even supersedes this life! Destiny is Eternal!
Don't get so discouraged that you settle for what is second best, rather than what is best!  Your life and destiny should not be left up to your second choice!  There is the Secret Design (ultimate mission), then there is the other stuff. Your true mission, which is your destiny, comes with a sacrifice.  You cannot reach, nor can you complete your mission alone.
Do not seek ungodly counsel or even consult your flesh when you are trying to pursue your destiny. This is especially true when you have hit the roadblock of stagnation, complacency, and unbelief in yourself.  The flesh and ungodly counsel is your enemy in your time of uncertainty.  Desperate situations give way to doing things that you would not normally do.  Do not let the uncertain you mess up the real you during a time when you don't know what to do!  Lift up the inner-you, the Word, and the Worship that is already down on the inside of you.
Discover God's Dream for You…
It is Destiny!
·         There is a price to pay for the anointing & destiny on your life!
·         Don't Fear the interruptions in your life!
·         You have to keep moving when preparing for destiny.
·         You have to suffer with Grace when you pursue your destiny!
"If you can't Fly, then Run, if you can't Run, then Walk, if you can't Walk, then Crawl, but by all means keep moving!"
It is a PRESS to Make it to Your Destiny!

Destiny Series Pt.1

What is DESTINY?
God never has to recreate you in order for you to achieve your destiny in becoming the person you were always meant and created to be.  God just presents great opportunities in your life in order for you to become all that He has spoken over you.
"You must be certain of who you are, who God is, and what He has called you to do when you are preparing for your destiny!"
There are literally thousands of books about Destiny.  I am inclined to believe that discovering Destiny is one of the most important aspects of life.  Destiny is Life! Your Life is not being lived unless you are living out your Destiny.  Destiny is defined as an event (or a course of events) that will inevitably happen in the future. It is your overall circumstances or condition in life (including everything that happens to you). Destiny is an inevitable or necessary fate to which a particular person or thing is destined, one's fortune. 
 Destiny is also a predetermined course of events considered as something beyond human power or control.  The quest for Destiny is the Search for True Significance.  In preparing for your destiny, you have to know what is of God and what is just good.  Not everything that you think is good for you is the best that God has in store for you.  God gives Destiny, but it is up to us to pursue it. 
 Is what you are pursuing at this moment in your life God-ordained, or is it just good to you? The greatest failure and tragedy in life is to get to the end and realize you succeeded at the wrong thing.  How tragic to reach the world's standards, but miss God's purpose.  It is the battle of God's Purpose vs. the American Dream.
Tell yourself, "Don't Succeed at the Wrong Thing!"  When preparing for your destiny, you have to know what is not destiny and what is not for you.  You have to be able to say to yourself, "It isn't for me!"  When you are truly ready to prepare and pursue your destiny, you have to say to yourself, "NO MORE EXCUSES!"  It is time for you to quit making excuses about why you are not in pursuit of your destiny. It is time to get yourself together and start going after the things of God.  God is waiting on you.
