October 21, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional : Topic – THE DANIEL’S SENSE OF THE DESTINATION (1) – Jeremiah 29:11, Deuteronomy 32:10-12
God always has a place in mind that He is taking you; He has a destination in mind for you. When the Bible describes God as the Eagle, it shows the training nature of the Father. He is not just looking to gather a family; He is a Gatherer who cares, but He is also a Trainer, and the goal of God, the ultimate purpose of God for your life, will come as you embrace Him as a Trainer.
Most people enjoy Him as the Gatherer; He gathers us together in church and we see ourselves. God wants us to recognize that He is a Trainer. You must always have the destination in your mind because God has something in mind. When He called the children of Israel and formed a nation out of them, He had something in mind. He had a place where He was taking them and those who embraced that process entered into that place. Those of them who didn’t embrace it found themselves moving backwards as God was moving forward.
If you are travelling and you find yourself in a tunnel, in a stationary vehicle while other vehicles are moving fast beside you, it won’t look like you are static, it will look like you are moving backwards. There is no place for stagnancy in the spirit realm; you are either moving forward or going backwards in the Spirit. The only way to keep moving forward and making progress is to discover God’s destination for you (God’s purpose – what He has in mind) and team up with it. You may not have a precise picture of where He is going with you, but you know He is going somewhere. So what God gives you is a sense of going somewhere.
PRAYER: Father, I ask that You sharpen my sensitivity to the destiny and purpose You have for me in Jesus’ name.
