There are three stages of human existence that influence the details of your destiny. First is before birth, at birth (when God releases you on earth), and at the New Birth.
Before Birth: You existed before you were born and there are still some human beings existing in this realm. The Bible tells us in the Scripture above that when Abraham paid tithe, Levi was in his loins. Abraham gave birth to Isaac, Isaac gave birth to Jacob, Jacob gave birth to Levi, yet Levi paid tithe in Abraham, three generations before he was born; therefore Levi existed before he was physically born. In the same manner, all humans existed as spirits in the presence of God before birth. It is in God’s predestination that He determines whether to give them each a male or female body.
At Birth: The second stage begins at birth but covers the period from birth to death. God’s view of this stage of your life is split in two stages: life in Christ and life outside Christ. God looks at everybody on earth in terms of whether they are in Christ or outside Christ. Are you in Christ or outside Christ? If you are outside Christ, He looks at you in two ways: a Jew or a Gentile. Until you become born again, your divine destiny cannot start. Don’t let the devil take advantage of you. I tell people that when God saves an old person, his soul is saved. But when a young person becomes saved, his soul is saved and his life is also saved. This is so because the remainder of his or her life will be available for God’s purpose to be fulfilled.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to redeem lost time on the earth. The years I spent in sin, please give me another chance to fulfill my destiny in Jesus’ name.
