Other people they say: ” Destiny is not a matter of chance, it s a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved”
But, I would like to say: ” Destiny is not a matter of chance, it s a matter of God’s plan. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved” Bible verses for example 1 Samuel 16; 1 Samuel 21; 2 Samuel 5:1-10; 1 Chronicles 11-12; Psalms 133.
Many men of God use Josua 24: 15 to believe that Destiny is a matter of choice, no. God first chose Josua.
Josua was chosen by God, Read this:
Numbers 27: 16-18 ( …16“May the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the congregation, 17 who will go out and come in before them, and who will lead them out and bring them in, so that the congregation of the LORD will not be like sheep which have no shepherd.”18 So the LORD said to Moses, “Take Joshua the son of Nun, a man in whom is the Spirit, and lay your hand on him;… )
Josua 1: 1-4 ( 1:1 After Moses the Lord’s servant died, the Lord said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ assistant: 1:2 “Moses my servant is dead. Get ready! Cross the Jordan River! Lead these people into the land which I am ready to hand over to them. 1:3 I am handing over to you every place you set foot, as I promised Moses. 1:4 Your territory will extend from the wilderness in the south to Lebanon in the north. It will extend all the way to the great River Euphrates in the east (including all of Syria) and all the way to the Mediterranean Sea in the west )
I want to say David destiny was to become King according to God” s plan, but David did not wait, yes, he fought for his destiny, that is an achievement.The same like Joseph, Joseph knew his destiny through dreams but he had challenges, at the end, the destiny of God upon his life was achieved because he did not give up. As children of God, Destiny is a matter of God’s plan but we have to exercise in action our faith we achieve.Praise God. As Christians we are, we believe in predestination, We do not choose our destiny because our God has already prepared it for us,we are the chosen ones. God knew that you will become His child ( who you are in the Lord ), and you could not run away from that destiny no matter the challenge you faced,
the grace of God assisted you to fight for your destiny which you did not choose because God gave you only one option: it is what you are today.
Even thought the devil can present us another destiny or option, but children of God will definitely follow the plan of God not by their power but by His power and Grace.
Let us stop using philosophy or materialism to comment the bible.
God is the Source and Force of Destiny in Christian Life, Destiny that He makes happen by His Grace.
