Until you are in the grave there is always the chance for you to reach the destiny God has for you. Every single person who is born has a God given purpose. A scripture that is quoted by many believers when it comes to destiny and future is Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you," says the Lord, "thoughts of peace and not evil, to give you a future and a hope."
Isn't it an awesome thing to grasp?! The Creator of the universe and everything that exists, is thinking about you! He has plans for us! All of us!! What a blessing! Even more interesting, the Lord does not renig on His plan for us. Romans 11:29 says, "For the gifts and calling of God are irrevokable." Whatever God has for us in our destiny, we can be assured it is ours for the taking.
God is all powerful. He spoke and the sun came into existence. Even our mishaps cannot thwart the great things God has for us. He has already worked everything out for His glory. All we have to do is receive the Gift given to us over 2000 years ago, Jesus. As we celebrate Christmas, each time you give or receive a gift, think of Him, what He has given to you and wants to give to you. They are all wrapped up under the tree of Life with your name on them. Perfect tining. It's Christmas. Go get 'em!
