Your Divine Destiny Begins In Christ by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Your Divine Destiny Begins In Christ by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a
new creature: old things are passed
away; behold, all things are become new
(2 Corinthians 5:17).

Every human being that’s born into this world
has two destinies, a natural destiny and a
divine destiny. Your natural destiny is based
on your parentage, nationality, education, peers,
environment, and everything that’s natural to this world.
All of these can affect you and determine the course of
your life. For example, there’re some who are rich, not
by virtue of anything that they’ve done, but because of
the family in which or to which they’re born. That’s
natural destiny at work.

Some people suffer, not because they were
responsible for the problem but because they just
happened to live in a particular place. There’re certain
places that are filled with crime and violence and those
who live there are victims of the lawlessness. That’s
natural destiny. However, there’s the divine destiny,
which is based on God’s choice. Two things affect
divine destiny. The first one is the choice that God
makes for the sake of other men. For example, the Bible
says God delivered Israel from Egypt by a prophet, and
by a prophet, Israel was preserved. God chose Moses
to deliver other men.

Then secondly, and more importantly, is the
divine destiny that begins when Jesus becomes the Lord
of your life. When you declare the Lordship of Jesus
over your life, God has a right to alter the circumstances
of your life to align with His perfect will. That’s when He becomes your Father and starts leading you. That’s
when He sends His Holy Spirit to live in you and to
guide you. You’re thus separated and distinguished
from the rest of the world.

Being born again, the Lord’s mark is on you;
His seal designating you a child of divine destiny; His
treasured and favoured possession. You’re not of this
world, and therefore can’t and shouldn’t be affected
by the natural courses of life; the corruption, evil, and
decadence prevalent in this world of darkness. Now
your journey in life is one direction only: from glory to
glory; upward and forward, as you walk in His Word
daily.

PRAYER
Dear Father, thank you for the blessing of your Word,
which indeed is a lamp unto my feet and a light
unto my path. Thank you for the enlightenment it
has given me. I’m thus better equipped to be all you
created me to be, and fulfil my divine destiny in you,
for your glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
