God desires that we live lives of superabundant quantity and superior quality (John 10:10, AMP). The Word of God produces godly thoughts, healthy emotions and wise decisions, which
leads to godly actions and habits that develop into godly character.
Godly character is the prerequisite to reaching the destiny that
fulfills your desires, achieves your purpose and pleases God.

  1. To reach your destiny, you must renew your mind with these four truths:
    1. All people, regardless of the circumstances of their birth, their life history or current situation, have a God-ordained destiny.
    2. External influences do not control lives; it is the information inside a person that controls his or her circumstances.
    3. If you give your best, you will have the best.
    4. Order and balance are essential characteristics to meeting one's destiny.
      1. Your priorities should be in line with God's will for your life, not your personal schedule.

  2. You must be willing to leave your comfort zone and step out on divine ideas to reach your destiny.
    1. A selfish idea, one that only benefits you, is not a God idea.
    2. Never quit a job to get a job; this is especially true for men. Instead, always support your family and provide stability while pursuing
      your entrepreneurial goals.

  3. God knew you and predetermined your specific purpose before you were conceived in your mother's womb (Jeremiah 1:5, AMP).
    1. God set you aside for the time period in which you were born so that you could be a part of His plan for this generation.
    2. Never determine your own purpose, discover the set path and race that God has already planned for you (Hebrews 12:1).
    3. Following the "life sequence" by using the Word to shape your thoughts, emotions, decisions, actions, habits and character will guide you to
      the set destiny that God has for your life.
    4. Your purpose and destiny allow you to utilize your natural gifts and abilities so that you can sweatlessly make a mark in the lives of other people.
    5. Don't manipulate your anointing to gain money; instead, use it to bless others.

  4. God has appointed a time and season for everything He has called you to do (Ecclesiastes 3:1).
    1. Doing something when it is not your season will result in struggle, frustration and possible failure.
      1. Fruit that is eaten out of season has a bad taste, likewise, gifts and callings used before their time will seem sour.
      2. Until it is your time, be a servant and become equipped for the job you are destined to do.
        1. The hardships you experience as a servant prepare you to survive as a leader when you use the lessons you've learned.
        2. Be willing to be faithful where God has placed you now in order to be promoted to the next level. iii.
        3. Never neglect small beginnings because Christians start small and end up excessive.
      3. Make confessions concerning your destiny.
      4. Do everything you can to dominate the world for the kingdom of God.

    1. Think about the true desire of your heart, regardless of what people say.
    2. Determine what stirs your passion, drive, zeal and excitement.
    3. Know what gifts flow naturally though you-the things you can do effortlessly that have been embedded in you by God.
    4. Seek counsel from mature Christians, people who make decisions in line with the Word (Proverbs 11:14; 20:18).
    5. Listen to the witness of the Holy Spirit in your spirit; be led by the peace of God, and if you don't have peace, don't step out.
    6. Understand the things you can or cannot commit to 100 percent to achieve your purpose. In other words, determine your priorities.
    7. Recognize which abilities and talents produce good fruit in your life.
    8. Follow the peace of God; allow the Holy Spirit to direct your path.
