Stepping Into Destiny

Stepping into destiny isn’t a one-time event. It comes when we begin to learn how to fully depend on God. Everything which comes into our lives are meant to teach us how to do that. Everything. When we get to the point where we think we can handle everything ourselves, we’ve just stepped out of our destiny.

The Holy Spirit gives us gifts we can use on this journey, however we need Him to activate them. He will when we submit our plans to Him. We have to do what Proverbs 3:5-8 in the Message Bible says. “Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life!”

It’s not healthy to live in a state of chronic stress. It’s not only related to our overall health, but to our purpose and the destiny God has for us. These verses in Proverbs give us a good outline for stepping into our destinies. They will also help us achieve overall health. That’s logical because if we aren’t healthy we cannot fulfill the destiny God has for us.

In this episode, we talk about the steps to health and relief from stress outlined in this passage.

  • Trust God From the Bottom of Your Heart
  • Stop Trying To Figure It All Out
  • Listen for God’s Voice In Everything You Do and Everywhere You Go
  • Don’t Assume You Know It All
  • Run to God
  • Run from Evil

God has a greater-than-you-can-think-imagine-or-dream goal for each of us. His destiny for you is something you won’t know until you get there, but when you do, it will blow your socks off. You only reach your destiny by surrendering to God and totally trusting Him.

Stepping into our destinies means we are living totally sold out to Jesus. It means we are listening to God and watching for how He is moving and directing us. His goal for us was planned before we were born. He will get us there even though we may feel like we’ve blown it.

At the end of this passage is a great promise from God that tells us when we follow the steps outlined, the results will be that our bodies will glow with health and our very bones will vibrate with life. I’m looking forward to that promise!
