DESTINY,   “WORTH CONSIDERING”   12/13/19   (Across my desk this morning.)

Today’s Scripture
“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way…  Psalm 37:23
He Holds Your Destiny

Oftentimes, people who aren’t fulfilling their destiny will try to discourage you from fulfilling yours. They may not do it intentionally, but they’ll tell you what you can’t do and how things won’t work out. They’re quick to remind you of all your impossibilities. Your relatives, coworkers and friends may try to talk you out of your dream, but that’s because God didn’t put that promise inside them; He put it inside you! You have to remember that other people don’t determine your destiny, God does. He holds your destiny in the palms of His hands. If you will keep believing, God will not only bring it to pass, He will do more than you can ask or think. Friend, don’t let someone else’s unbelief keep you from believing. Don’t let other people talk you out of your dreams. It’s time to get into agreement with God. He says you are well able. He says you are equipped. He says you are qualified. He says you are anointed, called and appointed to fulfill every dream and desire He’s placed within you!

A Prayer for Today
“Father in heaven, I trust that You are leading and guiding me today. I trust that You hold my future. I choose to tune out the discouraging voices and tune into Your Word. Fill me with Your peace and joy as You direct my steps in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

My Thoughts:
This is so very true,  you are the only soul that will ever be like you.  Once you come to the place of accepting the fact that there is Intelligent Design in the Creation around us.  Then comes the questions of: Why am I here and where am I headed in the scope of things?  What is my destiny.  We are far too wonderfully made to only live a few years and then be terminated.  Seems to me that we were created to fulfill a given purpose, a destiny,  but due to also having a free will we have to want to know it and to seek it out.  Otherwise we would just be a junk pile of robots parroting our given programs.. 

As for me at 87, as I look back over my life I am amazed at how the time has gone by so very quickly.  I remember very clearly being a very little boy and eating green apples in the apple tree in the farm yard like it was only yesterday.  I had blond curly hair and one day I plastered down with molasses.  Flies in the chicken yard really loved me that day.    And I am sure that you life is spinning by just as mine did.   So in light of your soul being created to be eternal where are you going to find good directions?   You already know that without good directions you may not get to where you want to go.  So where do you want your eternal soul to go for eternity?   Don’t think you have one?   But what if you do???????

The best information on getting to where anyone want to go usually comes from some one who has already gone there and left good directions.  In April of 1955, my personal decision was to trust Christ Jesus for the needed directions.  So, for the last 65 years,  with a few detours,  I have sought to learn from HIS experience and directions.  So at this point in my life I have very little doubt at all that HIS directions are good..  And that my Creator is pulling for me to keep on coming to HIM.  But bottom line,  It has been my quest and my victory through HIS grace.  But my family,  wives ( Outlived 2 and married to a 3rd) and my kids and family and friends have,  in many ways, stood in the way.  Their well meaning suggestions and fears have tended to side track me In my walk through life,  I have found it true, in my life,  that either Christ Jesus is LORD with HIS commandments in my life or that the map HE gave me will not work for me at all.  In fact,  I have found that The Creator will not alter HIS TRUTH at all to accommodate the carnal nature that I inherited from Adam at all no matter how I beg , connive and manipulate.  That HE loves, a proven fact.  That HE wants the very best for me, absolutely.  But that I can change his mind, a waist of time, a lost cause.  And I am learning that walking in HIS Loving Truth has far more Joy that being caught up in the worlds lies.   What we sow, is exactly what will grow in our garden of life and will reap many many times over.

Yours in HIs great love and wonderful grace and mercy.   Ken<><
