In order to understand the scope of your divine destiny, you need to realise that there are three stages of human existence, namely: before birth (your existence before you were born), at birth (when God releases you to the earth) and after death (you will continue to exist after death).
Before Birth: You existed before you were born and there are still some human beings existing in this realm. The Bible tells us that when Abraham paid tithe, Levi was in his loins and paid tithe in Abraham; three generations before he was born. Therefore, Levi existed before he was born. Accordingly, all the children you will give birth to in life exist as spirits in the presence of God. The destiny that God has for them informs His decision to give a male or female body.
At Birth: The second stage which is the stage on earth covers the period from birth to death. For a deceased person, you say, “Mr Akin lived from 1901-2000” because he has lived and died, but for the living, you say “1947- ” because the person is still alive. As far as God is concerned, man's journey on the earth has two stages: life in Christ and life outside Christ. God looks at everybody on the earth in terms of in-Christ and outside-Christ. If you are outside Christ, He looks at you in two ways: a Jew or a Gentile.
After Death: Everything you do on earth is recorded and if you live your life outside Christ, the end is damnation in hell, even though God planned a glorious destiny for you. Always live in the light of eternity.
PRAYER: Lord, I believe in Your purpose for my life and I dedicate my life afresh to what You have chosen for me in Jesus’ name. Amen!
