I read in your letter what you wrote about me, And I’m coming to the party you’re throwing for me. That’s when God’s Word entered my life, became part of my very being. So I said, “I’m here to do it your way, O God, the way it’s described in your Book. (Psalms 40:7- 8 and Hebrews 10:7 MSG)
God in His manifold wisdom has encoded the destiny of each and every one of us in His Word; and He has commissioned the Holy Spirit to reveal it to us progressively as we fellowship with Him. It is therefore important that we commit to knowing what has been written concerning us in the realm of eternity so we can express it in the realm of time.
As you study and meditate on the Word, you will discover that there is a general destiny for all the children of God as the body of Christ, and there is a specific destiny for each child of God as a member of that body.
However, just like all the cells of your body bear the same genetic pedigree and are in that respect similar, all members of the body of Christ bear the genetic imprint of Christ and in that respect, have a common destiny. That common destiny is to be conformed to the image of Christ (Romans 8:29).
Consequently, as you become more conformed to the image of Christ you become more empowered to fulfil destiny. In like manner, the progressive fulfilment of your specific destiny should cause you to be more conformed to the image of Christ.
True success is when we live according to God’s ordination and fulfil His plan for us rather than our personal ambitions. It is only within this context – the context of living out God’s script for our lives – that we can bring glory to God.
