What does God require you to do with your life? Are you fulfilling destiny?
If you’re not yet certain about what fortune God has for you, the answer doesn’t have to remain a mystery any longer. By seeking a closer relationship with your Creator, you can determine and fulfill what He has created you to do.
Here’s how to find and fulfill your destiny:
Rethink why it’s significant to start living according to your destiny: Living out your destiny will give you greater fulfillment, concentration, firmness, significance, identity, and provision in your life. Don’t settle for less than the greatest God has for you, which is to discover and fulfill your destiny every day that you live.
Don’t confuse business with purpose: While it’s honorable working for God, ensure that you’re seeking God’s will for your work rather than just hopping into activities that seem to be valuable. Too often, people dedicate their time and energy on activities that are good but don’t reflect God’s purposes for their lives. Decide to seek God’s guidance for your life every day.
Measure what you do according to what God has created you to do. Have a rethink whether or not to pursue some activities on the basis of how they will or won’t help you fulfill your destiny. Keep in mind that your fate is “the modified life calling God has bestowed and fortified you to accomplish in order to bring Him the highest glory and achieve the maximum enlargement of His kingdom.”
View yourself as God sees you: You are being created by God as a masterpiece, and that’s how he sees you. As a masterpiece, you are: exceptional, distinct, valuable, titled, and recognized. Ask the Holy Spirit to prompt you of that every day, to help you live with assurance.
Seek God’s kingdom first in your life: Place your relationship with God at the center of your life and turn everyone and everything else around it. Once you make it your top priority to follow God, you won’t have to fight to find your destiny, because God will reveal it to you in the perspective of your growing relationship with Him. So make God the central focus of your feelings, activities, wants, time, endowments, and treasures, and expect Him to make miracles out of even the messes in your life.
Don’t discriminate between sacred and secular work: Understand that God has called all believers in all professions to improve His realm on Earth through their work. God can use your work in any field to achieve powerful aims that have eternal value. Make a word to God that you will do all of your work – whatever it is – with excellence to serve Him every day. View yourself in the workplace as one of God’s ambassadors.
Trust in God’s authority: Since nothing occurs without God’s consent, he is all-powerful and completely loving; God has a decent purpose for allowing every difficult condition into your life. Whenever you experience something confusing or painful, choose to trust God in the midst of the condition, and ask Him to show you how to respond to it in ways that best fulfill His purposes.
Ask God to unveil your passion and help you attach it with eternity: God has made you with precise yearnings and motivations; paying attention to those will help you realize what you’re passionate about. Question yourself such as: “What is my attraction?” “What makes me feel alive?” “What work can I do?” Once you’ve recognized what you’re passionate about, reflect how your passion connects to eternal values, such as those that the Bible describes. Pray about your passion, asking God to show you how you can follow it in ways that will increase His kingdom on Earth.
Move onward one step at a time: Don’t wait to act on the guidance that God gives you about how to fulfill your destiny. God’s assistance will frequently come gradually, rather than coming in a dramatic image that shows you everything you should do far into the future. Rather than allowing your partial knowledge limit you, respond to God on the basis of what you do know, trusting that God will continue to guide you step by step to embolden you to stay closely connected to Him.
Develop and use your natural talents and spiritual gifts: Ask God to help you recognize the gifts He has given you to use in the world and the gifts He has given you to use in the church. Once you know what these are, target to use them as fully as you can every day, and as you serve you will be accomplishing your destiny in the process.
Make the most of your time: Every day that God offers you on Earth has valuable opportunities for you to achieve your destiny as much as you can. So maximize your time by offering yourself as a living sacrifice for God every day, ready to say “yes” to whatsoever He may call you to do.
Dedicate yourself fully to God: Rather than chasing your own plans, seek God’s will and do your best to follow it in every part of your life, without holding anything back. You can do this best by welcoming the Holy Spirit to renovate your mind daily, enable you to change views that don’t replicate God’s truth with ones that do.
Unite with God as He trains you to depend on Him: Don’t fight God’s efforts to strip you of self-sufficient habits that disprove the healthy reliance God wants you to develop on Him. Have in mind that you can do much more while depending on God than you can ever do on your own. Recognize that your purpose will always be bigger than you, so you must learn how to rely on God to help you fulfill it.
Improve a routine of worship: When you approach every condition in your life with an attitude of worship (honoring God), you will start to identify God at work in your life and place yourself to hear from the Holy Spirit frequently, which will help you accomplish your destiny.
