Destiny

Greetings My Friends

Destiny is a word that seems to puzzle a lot of people. The dictionary says : a predetermined course of events, often held to be an irresistible power or agency.
I for one do not believe that everything in life is unavoidable. We go through life from the time we first know we are alive until we die, making all sorts of decisions. Part of the problem is we generally don't consider the outcomes of those decisions.
Many people base their choices on the emotion or circumstances. The definition of destiny indicates that you have no choice in the matter. At any time you can change your future. For example, if you go to college you will probably have a better job and make more money than someone who didn't. People have all kinds of excuses for inaction, only they call it reasons. I think some people use destiny so that they can feel better about themselves. Life is full of choices, nothing is chiseled in stone ahead of time.
 God has a plan for each person. You might say that His plan results in a good life for each person, and eternity with Him. In spite of the fact that He is God, and can make you do it, he does not force you. It is your choice who's plan you follow, yours or His.
 God provided the way for us to be saved, by grace through Jesus. Big choice here. You pick your eternity. When you choose Jesus as your Savior you also get the Word of God, the Bible. At the same time you will receive the Holy Spirit. The Word is God teaching you how to live, and the Holy Spirit helps you to understand that Word. The Holy Spirit also helps you and guides you in God's plan for you. You will hear that tiny voice in your heart guiding you. Things that seem impossible will happen for your good.
Remember this. At any time you can choose your own plan. Lightning will not strike you but you will have to live with your choices. God will not force you to be blessed.
So what do you think? Is destiny something real or just an excuse to distance yourself from the life you chose?  You can decide. You are not a slave with no choice. Choose well

God Bless You and Remember
Jesus Loves You

Prayer of Salvation

Oh God in heaven, I believe with all of my heart that Jesus has been raised from the dead. I receive Your Word, and I repent of sin. I renounce the past. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus. I receive my forgiveness. I receive the new birth, cleansed and washed in the Word and in the precious blood of Jesus. Fill me with Your Spirit, in Jesus name. Amen
