Nothing Just Happens

But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord JESUS, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

Acts 20:24

“Whereas your destiny is not your decision but your discovery, fulfilling it is your choice and responsibility.”

One of the mistakes made by people in certain circles about destiny is the erroneous belief that whatever God has predetermined for you to be is what you will be; and that where God destined for you to end is where you will end. This is not only a fallacy but opposes a fundamental truth which is that God created man a free moral agent with inalienable rights to choose what to do or not do per time.

Whereas your destiny is not your decision but your discovery, fulfilling it is your choice and responsibility. Apostle Paul had a destiny, and like we have seen, he determined to actualize it. It cannot happen any other way. Just because God ordained and designed it so does not mean that is what it will be. Destinies can be aborted and can suffer miscarriage. Simply put, destinies can be stopped from happening.

  • Satan entered into Judas, used him to betray the Master and tragically aborted the destiny of Judas. Acts 1:16-20
  • On the other hand, we see how Daniel refused to defile himself with a portion of the king’s meat, he walked in in total dedication and emerged a champion of nothing. Daniel 6:26-28

It is all up to you. No excuses will suffice. God, the author of your destiny uniquely created and engraced you to actualize it and there no challenges you will ever face on your way to destiny realization that Heaven has not made you victorious.

Just Do It

  • Take full responsibility for your destiny.
  • Make a string resolve to actualize it at any cost.


  1. Spirit of the Living God, fire into my heart the burden to make my destiny happen.
  2. Let every power manipulating me against my destiny fulfillment be paralyzed, in the Name of JESUS.
  3. By the Blood of JESUS, I destroy and defeat every plan, programme of arrangement to abort or stop my destiny, in the Name of JESUS.
