…For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:8
“….and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins."
Matt 1:21 NKJV
How can I fulfill my destiny?
How can I fulfill my destiny? Is a question that heaven has answered, and is always answering those that call upon the Lord. In this message is divine answer to every yearning soul that wants to fulfill his/her Destiny. This sermon shows how you can fulfill your Destiny with good success. Let us enter into divine illumination, starting from the above scriptures;
“….For this purpose the Son of God [our Lord Jesus Christ] was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil”. NKJV
Son of man appeared for a certain ‘purpose’ on this planet earth to do an important assignment ordained by God. We can as well say, if not for this purpose, ordained by God the son of man may even not have come bodily. I mean in person and in Human nature. The verse; “And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name JESUS, for He will save His people from their sins." Matt 1:21 make us understand that the special purpose warranted His bodily appearance, for this task, which was ordained by God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. This purpose of His coming to this world bodily is called Destiny.
God has several purposes for every Human Being He created on this earth. No one is born into this world without God’s purpose for his life. Your bodily appearance on this earth, as you are now, means God sent you here for a special purpose. This purpose is more important than gold, silver, or diamond. It is very precious; something that make you a star. I mean when you are mentioned, it stands you out as a unique person on earth. It makes you a light to your generation. Just as I said earlier, if not for this purpose, ordained by God, one may not have come to this earth bodily at all.
This purpose ordained by God for you is called your Destiny. Your Destiny is the purpose of God for your existence. Your Destiny is the main reason for your creation and your reason for being present in this world. Your Destiny affects other people. It makes you a star of importance.
As you are reading this message, if you have not known your Destiny, God will reveal it to you in Jesus name. This is why God has placed this message in your hand now. You may say I don’t know my destiny, don’t drag it too far, go on your knee and pray your way to break through until you receive divine answer. Ask for confirmation from Heaven first and you go ahead. Pray with pure heart unto God. He will show you His main purpose for your coming into this world which is your Destiny. God doesn’t keep His children in darkness. Have it in your mind; God is Love 1 John 4: 16. Take note, title of the message you are reading is; How You can fulfill Your Destiny so read on.
How I Can Fulfill My Destiny :
[i] We are going to have a real divine sample of Destiny fulfilled life for us.
[ii] And you need a Way of success to follow, that can never and will never fail
Now we need an understanding of destiny fulfilled life first:
Destiny fulfilled life:
What is a Destiny fulfilled life? Destiny fulfilled life means God’s purpose for that life is accomplished. God is glorified in that Destiny. Note; any earthly pilgrimage of a person, in which, God Almighty is not pleased with, is questionable.
Let us discuss number one point of How I Can Fulfill My Destiny.
We want God’s sample of Destiny fulfilled life.
Our Lord Jesus Christ is a perfect example of Destiny fulfilled life. Destiny fulfilled life of the Lord Jesus is divided into three stages, they are;
A) The heavenly purpose of His coming to this world - Matt 1:21
B) His earthly walk, with accomplishment of the will of God - Act 10:38, Phil 2:6-8
C) And Heavenly response to the outcome of the Lord’s work on earth - Phil 2:8-11
This is the best sample of Destiny Fulfilled Life from God.
We have seen the divine stages, followed by our Lord Jesus. Wisdom dictates, we should start to tread the same path of success showed with prayer. And success is ours in the name of Jesus. Amen. Let us move on to part of the teaching; How I Can Fulfill My Destiny.
How I Can Fulfill My Destiny
Take note we are following the Lord’s success stages;
The first stage:
A) you need to know Heavenly purpose of your coming to this world first. Let us go into the scripture and see how that of our Lord Jesus came about.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. John 1:1-3 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us… John 1:14. And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God [Jesus]." John 1:34 NKJV
We have seen where our Lord came from; He came from God the Father, beautiful. I doubt whether anyone will want to come from anywhere else. Anxious for the purpose of His coming? Wait for the next scriptures.
“..For He will save His people from their sins [that is, prevent them from failing and missing the true end and scope of life, which is God].” Matt 1:21 AMP
We have seen His purpose of coming to this world in Matt 1:21, fine. Where was it decided? And by who? The next scripture will show us;
“For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him [God the Father] who sent Me.” John 6:38NKJV
The Lord’s main reason for coming was decided in Heaven. His purpose is the Will of God the Father. ‘His purpose of coming [Destiny] is not selfish; it is for salvation and to reconcile Mankind to God the Father’. The success of The Lord’s Destiny was unparalleled because He allowed the Will of God to prevail. For us to have success in our Destiny, we too have to ask God to know His Will for our Lives and allowed His will to prevail over any other selfish interest. ‘Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus’… Phil 2:5 .NKJV
One of those important aspect of this message that impressed me is that our Lord Jesus and God the Father discussed and perfected the purpose of His coming [His earthly Destiny] John chapter 10 in Heaven and that of others John 1:2-3 before He came to this world. You may not know when your Destiny was decided in Heaven. But our Heavenly Father is a good God that always plans the best for His children, the best that no person or power can be able to match. Jer 29:11 (NLT) (AMP), Jer 1:4-5NKJV, Isaiah 49:5NKJV
Our Lord Jesus did not exhibit any iota of doubt towards God the Father, during His earthly walk, I believe we should have absolute trust in God the Father as our Lord did when He was with us as a man.
How Do I know My Destiny?
Let us look into these scriptures to receive understanding to know the Heavenly purpose of our coming to this world. Please read the verses below very well;
"Before I [God] formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I [God] sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations." Jer 1:5 NKJV
God said to Jeremiah, before he was born, God said He knew Jeremiah as a complete person. God did not stop at only recognition, He said, Jeremiah's purpose of creation [i.e his Destiny] was already mapped out by Him, before Jeremiah became flesh. This Word of God is true to all God's creations, including you. Your purpose of creation [i.e your Destiny] was mapped out by God before you became flesh. We can as well say, blue print of your Destiny is with God, according to Jeremiah 1:5.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. Ps 139:16 NKJV
David said; in God's book, all the days of his life were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them. Every information about David [Man and including you] is in God's Book .
“All things [including you] were made through Him [Jesus Christ], and without Him [Jesus Christ] nothing was made that was made”.
John 1:3 NKJV
This verse from the book of John makes us understand, that our Lord Jesus knows everything about all creations before they exist including you.
“He [Jesus Christ] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
For by Him [Jesus Christ] all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and ‘In’ Him all things consist”. Col 1:15-17 NKJV
“For it pleased [God] the Father, that in Him [Jesus Christ] all the fullness should dwell, and by Him [Jesus Christ] to reconcile all things to [God] Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.”
Col 1:19-20 NKJV
From the above verses, we can see that all knowledge and information of all creations is with God the Father and God the Son, the next verse will introduce another very important personality into this exposition.
“But the Comforter (‘Counselor’, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, Whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will cause you to recall (will remind you of, bring to your remembrance) everything I have told you.” John 14:26
From the above scriptures we see that God the Father did all the creations through His son John 1:3 we do understand that God the Father has information of our purpose of coming to this world [our Destiny]. So also His Son Jesus knows everything about our Destiny since all things were made through Him and without Him nothing was made that was made. John 1:3 Holy Spirit the counselor, whom God the Father has sent into the world, to represent and act on behalf of our Lord, is available to counsel us on all things. Holy Spirit knows everything about all creations.
We have boldness now since we know that God created us through His Son. And we can only have access [way] to God through His Son Jesus Christ. Your Destiny is not difficult for you to know anymore. From scriptural expositions we’ve had so far, by wisdom, we know that any purpose or so called destiny that does not originate from God the Father or His Son Jesus Christ is erroneous and dangerous to touch. Note: Jer 1:5 NKJV, Ps 139:16 TLB, John 1:3, Col 1:15-17, Col 1:19-20. Even our Lord Jesus, during His earthly walk, subjected Himself to the Will of God the Father. He said, 'Behold, I have come….. To do Your will, O God." Heb 10:7-8. What a great Victory He had .NKJV
What should you do to know your Destiny?
PRAYER: Go on your knee and start to pray to GOD IN THE NAME OF JESUS. John 14:13-14 (“And whatever you ask in My name, that I [Jesus Christ] will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I [Jesus Christ] will do it.”) John 14:13-14 NKJV you might even receive more information than you are expecting using THE NAME OF JESUS TO ASK from God. The Lord will never ignore a pure and loving heart toward Him. Mark 11:24
God will reveal to you, your purpose of coming to this world IN THE NAME OF JESUS. Amen.
Please, a note of warning here, don’t say, my friend is a doctor, a lawyer, or an engineer and definitely my destiny must be one of them. Look at this verse in the scripture;
"With faithfulness and love He [God] leads all who keep His covenant and obey his commands" Ps 25:10.
No any other purpose is capable of matching God’s Will for you. God’s Will for you is always the BEST. God told Jeremiah his Destiny [Jer 1:4-5], God is doing it NOW. Seek the face of the Lord in your decision. Assuredly, the Lord will tell you your Destiny in Jesus name. I am assuring you and telling you the truth and with all sincerity, that our Lord Jesus is always telling people their Destiny. I bear witness to this. And I believe, He will continue, as far as Human being is existing in this world. Your present position is not too late to plug into your Destiny or to be useful to God. God is waiting for you to enter into your Destiny and be a blessing to man and to God. Note: Matt 19:26
After knowing your Destiny, another question is, Can God’s purpose for your life be achieved?
The answer is YES. You can fulfill your Destiny. Often God’s revelations may blow your mind, but you will succeed. Remember, we are scripturally, studying the success stages of Destiny Fulfilled Life of the Lord Jesus who is our all in all
A Way of Success to Fulfill My Destiny:
This will take us to the next stage:
B) Our Lord’s earthly walk, with accomplishment of the will of God and this will show us a Way of success to follow, to fulfill our Destiny that can never and will never fail.
Jesus came to this world and despite all things; He accomplished the Will of the Father for His Coming to this world. Our Lord is a perfect example we need. Take note: Our Lord is God that became flesh and dwelt among us as a person. How did He achieve God’s will, when He was in the world as a Man? What did He do to fulfill God’s will, knowing this, will help us to fulfill our Destiny. His way of success will be our way of success.
Way of Success:
Practical ways of success
(a) THE WORD OF GOD : The most successful and important tool our Lord used during His earthly life was the WORD. He stuck to the WORD OF GOD* (audio) The Word cannot fail you.
The WORD of God is proven.
This was Our Lord’s Tool of victory. How do I know, because He (Christ) said so. He showed and demonstrated throughout His earthly days, that the Word of God can be trusted. The Word of God is power; it is spirit and life. The Word works. Reff: Matt, Mark, Luke and John. No opposing challenges in this world, in the heavenlies, underneath the earth are capable of defeating the Word of God. The Word of God is God. When you are filled with the Word of God, you are filled with the power of God to succeed in your Destiny. The word of God is Living and endures forever.
Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke the Word throughout His earthly pilgrimage. Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke, lived and abided by the Word of God, all His earthly days. All those who SPEAK, LIVE, and ABIDE by the Word of God are Spiritual Giants.
Our Lord demonstrated how we should fulfill our Destiny by the Word of God. Don’t let the Word of God depart from your mouth; speak the Word. “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” Josh 1:8 NKJV
Stick to the Word of God, (1) Speak, (2) live and (3) abide by the Word of God, you will become a Spiritual Giant. You will fulfill your Destiny; become a success, a blessing to man and to God.
(b) Love God: God does not play with those who love Him. No mind can imagine what God can do for those that love Him. 1Cor 2:9. He makes a hedge around them that love Him. God’s loved ones are the apple of His eyes. See the relationship David had with God; develop a good relationship with God enough for Him to call you Man or Woman after His own Heart. Look this verse “…He [God the Father] gave testimony and said, 'I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.” Acts 13:22 Matt 22:37 NKJV
With the Love of God in your Heart, God will be with you and guide you till you fulfill your Destiny, He will reward you to your face and Hereafter.
(c) Love Jesus: "For in Him [Jesus Christ] dwells all the fullness of God bodily" Col 2:9 NKJV Have FAITH in Jesus Christ. Those who Love Jesus will see His manifestation. True and Pure Love of Christ will bring complete God Head into your life i.e. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost. They will make your Tent their Tent. John 14:21 & 23 what does this imply? it means you will be filled with divine Power to succeed in all your ways. No trial and error any more, but advancement and victories. It means the greatest [Power] in Heaven and on Earth is within you and accompanying you all the way in your Destiny.
(d) Love Holy Spirit : Loving the Holy Spirit and being baptized with Holy Ghost means you are having divine personality who will be your, Comforter, Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, and Standby John 14:16 AMP. With Holy Spirit in your Life, you won’t lack any spiritual power and many more.
(e) Let Love accompanies you in all your relationship with people." ...Put on Love, which is the bond of perfection".Col 3:14. Let your love be without hypocrisy... Rom 12:9 and
Let all that you do be done with Love 1 Cor 16:14.
Love never fails 1Cor 13:1-13, 1 Jn 4:7,
(f) Christ like Faith: It is a faith that sees God as God. It says that with God all things are possible. Matt 19:26
I will tell you a story of a Godly parent, who has a small child that was brought up in a christian way. The parents of this child taught him many things about God almighty. As small as the child was, he grew to Love God. Scripturally; this fine child was taught in all things of God.
One day, during their bible questions and answer in their home. His parents called their son and said, we have some important questions for you. In children bible class today, we are having an invited guest, and we want to be sure that you are alright in your understanding of God. He was asked to stand in their front as though he were in front of a class.
His parents asked the first question; how big and great is God?
This small boy looked directly at his parents; he said I will show you how big my God is.
He started to stretch out his two arms wide open, with his head bending backward, until he fell backward. His parents said, you mean God is so big that He has no Limit. He replied yes.
His parents asked the second question; how much is the love of God towards you?
This small boy told his parents, I will show you. He started to open his arms wide open towards heaven, with his head bending backward under the gesture, until he fell backward. Inquiringly, His parents asked, you mean God’s love toward you has no limit. Their boy replied yes.
His parents asked the third and last question; how great is God's faithfulness?
The small boy took his time and said at last to his parents, I will show you. He gradually started to open his two arms upward, with his head bending backward till he fell flat on his back. His parents said, you mean God’s faithfulness reaches to the clouds? Their son nodded in agreement. Ps 36:5-7
Christ like Faith does not limit God. Jeremiah 32:17
Christ like Faith does not limit the Love of God in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:32.1 John 4:16
Christ like Faith sees God as a faithful God.1 cor 1:9
Christ like Faith Trust God. Ps 37:3 & 5
Christ like Faith says God is Love. 1 John 4:8-10
Christ like Faith says God is Light. 1 John 1:5
Christ like Faith says “Father, I know You always hear me…” John 11:42
Exercise Christ like Faith in your walk in life, definitely you will fulfill your Destiny in Jesus name
(g) Prayer Communicate with GOD through prayer always, as our Lord Jesus Christ lived a prayerful life during His earthly walk. 1 Th 5:17, Phil 4:6 & 7,
Seven points of success based on the Word enumerated above are the ways of success for you to fulfill your Destiny without failure. The seven practical ways of success mentioned above, are the same ways for MAN to fulfill their DESTINIES with assurance of success. You are to WORK through the stages. You will succeed in your own Destiny and make Heaven in Jesus Name. Amen.
Divine Response to Destiny Fulfilled Life
We can now enter into the third stage of our Lord’s earthly destiny as a man and this will enlightened us on God's response to Destiny fulfilled Life.
C) Heavenly response to the outcome of the Lord’s work on earth, - Phil 2:8-11,
Our lord Jesus Christ said this word to His Heavenly Father when He was about finishing His earthly journey;
"I have glorified You [God the Father] on the earth. I have finished the work which You [God the Father] have given Me to do" John 17:4 NKJV
Our Lord's confidence to say this is because His Earthly journey
glorified His heavenly Father and He made God's Will His Will despite that He had a choice as a man in the world.
Every man God created is expected to make God's Will his Will and have true boldness as Our Lord, to make the same statements after completion of all his days on earth.
For Christ did not please Himself [He gave no thought to His own interests]....
Rom 15:3 AMP
God‘s response to the outcome of our Lord’s obedient to the Will of the Father is awesome; The scripture says:
“…Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. " Phil 2:9-11 NKJV God the Father did this, because His Son Jesus let the Will of God the Father prevailed when He was on this earth as a man.
To every Destiny fulfilled life, there is always Heavenly response determined by God. Most assuredly GOD responds to every destiny fufilled life in this present world and hereafter. The scriptures say
he who does the will of God abides forever. God will give each one whatever his deeds deserve. And there will be glory and honor and peace from God for all who obey him. He will give eternal life to those who patiently do the will of God, seeking for the unseen glory and honor and eternal life that He offers.
The Word of God in Matt 7:21 & Matt 25:34 say only he who does the will of God the Father, who is in heaven, will enter the kingdom of heaven, which is your inheritance prepared for you since the creation of the world. Heavenly reward supersedes any earthly gains. There is no comparison anyone can imagine. Obedience, adherence to the Will of God for one’s life and it's accomplishment, should be one’s goal in life. Whoever makes the will of God his will shall get his praise from God.
Follow the above stages with PRAYER; don’t try to copy another person’s purpose in life. God will definitely show you your own Destiny, you will fulfill your Destiny and you will make heaven in Jesus Name. The first step in fulfilling God's purpose for your life is by inviting Jesus Christ into your Life as your Lord. Please say after me, Father forgive me all my sins. Cleanse me with the blood of your Son Jesus. I accept Jesus Christ into my life as my Lord and personal savior in Jesus name I pray. Amen.
I am encouraging you to read your Bible all the time.
The above sermon is a practical one, work through it stage by stage and you will have success in your own Destiny in Jesus name.
