There are steps you must follow to reach your destination of living life in abundance, to the full, until it overflows. If you have arrived at a destination that you don't like,
stop, back up and start over with the Word of God. With the Word as your
foundation, you will be able to change your thinking, emotions,
decisions, actions, habits and character, which will bring you to God's
destination for your life.

  1. The type of character you develop will determine your destiny.
    1. Jesus came so that you might have an abundant, full and overflowing life (John 10:10, AMP).
      1. An abundant life is part of your destiny, but to ensure that you receive it, you must develop the character of Christ.
    2. Character is doing what's right, because it's right, and doing it right.
      1. In order to know what's right, you must know the Word.
      2. You have to be careful not to judge what is right and wrong based on your own thinking and experiences or by society's values. Right and
        wrong should be based on the Word.
    3. Character is the end result of the sequence that leads to reaching your destiny; it all starts with the Word.
      1. What words are you listening to and how are you thinking? Both will determine your character.
    4. Good character involves doing what's right so others can prosper.
      1. Evaluate yourself: Are you a consumer who is always taking from others, or are you a producer who is always adding to others?
    5. The type of character you have determines what people learn to expect from you.
      1. You will never rise above the limitations of your character.
    6. Spiritual conflict will never stop until you develop the character of Jesus (love and the fruit of the Spirit must be formed in your heart).
    7. Until you can rule your own life and spirit, you won't become a conqueror in the world (Proverbs 16:32, AMP).
      1. You can't conquer your enemies if you can't conquer yourself.
    8. You create character with every choice you make.
      1. Every day is an opportunity to demonstrate the type of character that you have.
    9. Daniel was a man of good character. As a result, he experienced promotion and prosperity (Daniel 2:48).
      1. Daniel demonstrated godly character in his diet, motives, honesty, discipline, integrity, convictions and loyalty.
