Fulfill Your Destiny

Gloria Copeland
For those whom He [God] foreknew [of whom He was aware and loved beforehand] He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren.

A sense of urgency has been implanted in the Body of Christ, in our spirits, by the Spirit of God, because the end of this age is very near. Time is running out, and God is fulfilling His plan in us. He is preparing for Himself a glorious Church without spot or wrinkle. He is raising up a people who will walk in the things He has prepared for them.

God is bringing forth a multitude of believers who will fulfill the divine destiny prepared for them since the beginning of time. That destiny is defined clearly in Romans 8:29. Our destiny as believers is to grow up in Jesus. It’s to be fully conformed to His image, which was placed within us the moment we were born again.

It’s a staggering thought that you and I could ever truly be transformed into that divine image. It seems almost impossible that we could be like Jesus. But God says we can be. In fact, the Bible says He has equipped us with everything necessary so that we might continue growing and developing and being conformed into His image (Romans 8:29).

Not only is God able to do that, but it is His will for us. It is His end-time plan. But whether or not that divine will comes to pass in our own individual lives is up to us. If we want to be a part of God’s plan, we must do our part of God’s plan. Our part is simply this: to walk pleasing before Him—to think His thoughts, to speak His Words. In other words, to walk in His ways.

When we do that, we will fulfill His will, and then He can manifest Himself in our lives just as He manifested Himself in Jesus’ life.

If we truly want to fulfill our divine destiny and enjoy the fullness of the power of God in our lives, we must make a decision and a determination to start living every moment of every day to please our Father. We must walk out the prayer the Apostle Paul prayed for the Colossians: “That ye might be filled with the knowledge of his [God’s] will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power…” (Colossians 1:9-11).

Make your decision today…and fulfill your divine destiny!
