Regardless of your Background… The destiny is still yours
How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you. Psalm 31:19
God’s plans for you are good… very good.
But sometimes “life” seems to get in the way.
What do we do then?
Always remember… God has a plan… and it includes you.
You see, the enemy would like you to believe that because of “stuff” in your life, you will not be able to walk into God’s plans for you. But let me tell you the truth about the matter.
It doesn’t matter what culture you were born in, or what nationality you were born into or what you have done in the past. God’s purposes can still be fulfilled in you.
Let’s consider Ruth. We can find her story in the book of Ruth in the Old Testament. By all appearances she was born into the “wrong” nationality. Scripture says that she was a Moabitess, a widow without much hope, from the city of Moab, a foreign land, of a people who worship foreign gods… idols.
She was not a part of God’s chosen people or God’s chosen land, but she made a choice, a choice to follow Naomi and the one true God. And that made all the difference
What kind of difference?
Because of her choice to follow God’s direction and leading, rather than her past, she ended up marrying her kinsman redeemer, Boaz, one who would care for her and protect her, one who would help position her for greatness. She ended up part of God’s family and plan.
According to Matthew 1:5, not only did she live a blessed life, she became the great grandmother of King David, one who God said was a man after His own heart and who wrote a large portion of the book of Psalms. And if that wasn’t enough blessing, she became the great, great, oh so great grandmother of our King Jesus Himself!
Don’t tell me God can’t bring forth your destiny because of your circumstances. He can and He will!
Choose Jesus… Choose the Life He gives.
He will do the rest!
He loves you.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
