"And now, behold, the Lord had kept me alive, as He said, this forty and five years…”
Caleb was forty years old when he said we are well able. At eighty-five he was unchanged. All his colleagues at that time had died. In fact the night of their negative confession, they died already. Unbelief kills men. When you refuse to embrace your destiny, the devil will wipe you out. When you embrace your destiny, God will help you to accomplish it.
Faith in God will keep you alive. After forty-five years, he said, “As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me…”. Faith preserved his strength; he looked like he didn’t grow old. When you choose to believe God, He preserves you. “…as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out and to come in”.
When you embrace your destiny, you will accomplish things as the Lord said it not as the enemy says."... I shall be able to drive them out, as the Lord said.” The word of the enemy is not important in our lives, it’s the word of the Lord our God that is important. It doesn’t matter where you find yourself, if the Lord put you there, you will accomplish what the Lord wants you to do there as the Lord as said.
You must step up to the field of destiny and play. The credit does not belong to somebody criticizing, anybody can criticize but it’s the man that steps into the field of his destiny and embraces the challenges (that his destiny brings his way, fight the fight not just talk the talk) that the credit belongs to.
When you go to a football match, you will discover that the best footballers are the ones in the spectators stand. They know how the man should play and how the man shouldn’t play but they can’t even kick a ball themselves. Don't spend your life or your time in the critic section of life, get into the participant section of life and embrace all that your destiny requires.
PRAYER: Lord, I choose today to embrace my destiny and all the challenges it brings, I receive the divine preservation that only comes by embracing destiny demands. I declare it shall be to me also, as the Lord has said in Jesus name. Amen.
