Do you ever question your destiny and purpose? Do you wonder if you will ever succeed at what God's called you to do? God has a plan for each and every one of us, and its a good plan! Maybe you feel like what God is asking you to do is just too hard, or your not smart enough, strong enough, or spiritual enough to see it come to pass. (Jeremiah 29:11) God has plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a hope and a future. When God drops hopes and dreams into your heart, its never to frustrate you or leave you feeling like you are constantly falling short. The Lord desires to see you fulfill your purpose even more than you do! When we face opposition, or when the rubber meets the road and God's plan requires a little work ( and it does.. there is no magical formula to replace hard work). Remember, God is the initiator of your destiny. He has had the purpose of your life in mind from before you were born. You are anointed to do hard things! Don't give up when following His plan gets hard, God is at work in you to will and accomplish His plan ( Phil 2:13)! This means not only has He enlightened, or awakened your heart to the desire, but He has equipped, and empowered you to see it come to pass. He started the work in you, and He will bring it to completion! The Lord doesn't give up on you, He has equipped you with what you need to fulfill your destiny! You are equipped! Thats right, He didn't mess up or make you a mismatch for the work He's called you to. He designed you perfectly.. personality, likes, dislikes, appearance, all of it- for a plan only you were created to fulfill! You are perfectly equipped! Don't fight against Him by speaking out all of the reasons you are deficient, but embrace how He created you. Then you will begin to embrace your purpose. When you commit to follow God's plan, you are empowered! If you know the Lord, the Holy Spirit lives in your heart and gives you the empowerment to fulfill your destiny, When things get hard, remember He that lives in you is Greater than anything in this world! Press through the hard things! Don't give up or back down, press through and see God at work on your behalf. When God asks you to fulfill a purpose, His anointing goes with you and breaks through the obstacles in front you! If you don't know the Lord, pray to receive Jesus into your life, He will awaken your heart to your beautiful purpose! You have been enlightened, equipped, and empowered to fulfill your destiny--- now walk in it!
