Lately, I have been hearing the Lord calling me into a specific destiny which I’ve been putting off for the past couple of years. Most of it has to do with fear of the unknown, and a lot of it has to do with trusting God. How we see our closest friends is the same way we see God. 

One thing I’ve learned in my twenty-six years of being alive on this earth is; never change your divine perspective. I have made many poor decisions in my life that have left me feeling hopeless at times, but the key is for us to learn from our mistakes and keep pushing forward because going back is not an option.

We must not be transformed by our negative experiences, but instead be transformed by the renewing of our minds as Romans 12:2 states.  The leaders I follow are those older than myself who have been through the fire and still have a childlike faith in God.

Everyone has bad days, but not everyone chooses to turn them into good days. Many times the reason God doesn’t seem to be talking to us is because He told us to do something years ago and we never did it out of fear. Fear is a demonic spirit that prevents God’s will from being displayed in full measure in our lives.

Sometimes our intentions are good for the things we want to do in our lives; take care of our families, show our co-workers God’s love, etc. But,what if God wants more from you? What if God wants you to quit your job and move to another country and start an orphanage, would you do it?

Would if God told you to sell all your possessions and move to another city away from the comfort of friends and family because He wants you to start a business, would you step into it? If we are waiting for the right moment to say “Yes” to God, then the truth is that we are actually telling God “No.”

Many of us are waiting for all the right doors to open before we do what the Lord has asked of us, when the only door that we need to walk through is the door He’s been waiting for us to step into from the beginning; the door that doesn’t have any answers or explanations behind it, but it does have the love and protection of the Father to guide us into our calling.

Many of us are doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results (the definition of insanity), when God just wants us to do one thing that will have a completely different result. When we are working against God we are striving, but when we work with God, we are co-laboring. 

God’s not going to tell us how to do everything, but He is going to tell us to do one thing.
