Topic – Designed For Excellence; Destined For Greatness [Seeds of Destiny 16 June 2019 Devotional]
Mankind was created to look like God because man originated from God. This is very important because knowing our source in life determines our success in destiny.
SCRIPTURE: And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. Genesis 1:26
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Knowing our source in life determines our success in destiny.
The Scriptures make it clear that our God is a God of excellence and distinction (Genesis 1:31, Psalm 8:1). Excellence is a character of God; authority is the nature of Divinity.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that we were created in God’s image and have been destined to produce after God’s own kind and likeness. It is very clear that mankind was created to look like God because man originated from God. This is very important because knowing our source in life determines our success in destiny.
Let me give you an example: an eaglet does not struggle to fly; a cub (young lion) does not struggle to roar and a calf (young elephant) does not struggle to be big. This is because each of these animals has the gene of their progenitor in them. Now, just as an eaglet does not struggle to fly, a cub does not struggle to roar and a calf does not struggle to be big; a child of God does not struggle to be great.
Beloved, there is a seed of greatness in you; you cannot struggle to be great in life; you cannot struggle to live in the realm of authority, distinction and excellence. So, it is important to be consciously aware that there is a potential for great destiny in you; you are destined to live in the realm of authority, distinction and excellence just like God.
The lack of this revelation is the reason why many people live in timidity, fear and inferiority complex on earth and have been robbed of fulfilling their destiny of greatness. But this shall not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.
Beloved, make up your mind to know who you are in God in order to maximize your potentials and fulfil your destiny.
Remember this: Knowing our source in life determines our success in destiny.
- Refuse to live a lifestyle of timidity and inferiority.
- Make up your mind to know who and what you are in God.
PRAYER: O Lord, I reject every lifestyle of fear and timidity. Help me to know Your purpose for my life, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
