I been trying to understand lately of what is destiny and what is faith. As a born again christian, I been thought that faith is something you can receive when you believe you can have it and it will reveal to your destiny. But sometimes I have to remind myself that destiny comes by strong faith, and faith needs personal relationship with God.
I attended the last Cathedral of Praise-Kasagaan and Business Managers Executive Fellowship (COP-KBF) www.cathedralofpraise.com.ph and I learn a lot from our undersheperd Pastor David Sumrall's teaching about faith and destiny, it makes me want to learn more. Truly hearing a good news makes spirit grow.
Faith is something we can hope for to happen. Faith is word comes from the Bible? Something that you believed that can be done. Faith is substitute word for belief, hope and trust.
From http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faith Faith is confidence or trust in a person, thing, deity, or in the doctrines or teachings of a religion. It may also be belief that is not based on proof.
Based in religion, faith often involves accepting claims about the character of a deity, nature, or the universe. While some have argued that faith is opposed to reason, proponents of faith argue that the proper domain of faith concerns questions which cannot be settled by evidence.
Faith comes by hearing the word of God everyday (Romans10:17). If you want to grow your faith make an everyday practice to pray (Psalm5:3), read your Bible and hear the word as much as possible and watch God to turn your life new.
Every one of us has a destiny. Destiny should come by faith. "Destiny comes 100 percent from God." Pastor Sumrall said.
Whatever you do in life, you're destiny will be there for you. It's is not determine by economic crisis and it cannot be hindered by anybody, it cannot be control by anyone.
God is a good God, he promised that he will do it and he will do it no matter what. We need to believe what He promised. God is faithful and he will not promise what he cannot do. All we need to do is continue to live right. Now, I am telling to my self to relax and live a life according to God's commands.
Guaranteed from God and not by your doings
Destiny will come into your life no matter what you do. If it is your destiny to be sharing God's goodness, you cannot run from it. Maybe it will delayed because of wrong decision and other circumstances in life but you cannot run from it. Destiny will delayed but not denied.
We should remember that God plan the lives of people before they are born (Jeremiah1:5).
Like King David in the Bible we should always ask God's mercy and ask God to help us to go on with your faith towards your destiny. God works everything out for his plan (Proverbs16:4).
I am excited now for my destiny and through faith I know it will happen. How about you whats your faith telling you about your destiny?
