Topic: Stepping Into Your Divine Destiny
“Do not be afraid to enter into what God has called you to do.”
“When God chooses you, do not make any excuses.”
Psalm 139:16 – Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.
“We have to say “Yes” to God!”
“Overcoming our fears”
Isaiah 41:10 – Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
Exodus 3:7-14; Exodus 4:1-17
“Just like Moses, we are to rise up to the challenge.”
Here are some of the Hurdles
1. A sense of unworthiness of being chosen by God.
1 Corinthians 1:26-29 – For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.
Daniel 11:32 – Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.
Psalm 46:10 – Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!
Hebrews 1:1-2 – God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds;
“Do not worry. Just do what God wants you to do.’
Proverbs 16:7 – When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.
Luke 2:52 – And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.
2. Focusing on your weaknesses
Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Revelations 21:8 – But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
“There’s no place for cowards in the Kingdom of God.”
