I love the word destiny. It means that something is already going to happen, regardless of my control. It doesn’t matter if I screw it up in the present moment, destiny has a different outcome.
But the bigger reason I love destiny is because it reveals that there’s a purpose for my existing, a calling over my life, and a caller who orchestrates the entire thing.
Wow, what a relief! Right? Knowing I was born to do something for God keeps my entrepreneurial engine running, keeps the fuel going, keeps the fire burning.
But the trouble we run into as entrepreneurs is we want to control as much as possible. If we could control destiny, we would. But we can’t, and that might paralyze some of us.
Destiny wasn’t meant to be controlled, it was meant to give us faith and hope that what we’re doing today will have an impact for God’s kingdom in the future.
We can’t control destiny, but we can live a life of purpose and passion today for.
We entrepreneurs have a duty and obligation to live into our destiny. And although we really won’t fully know our destiny (especially since it outlives us beyond our existing on earth), we can know what we were born to do today, right here, right now.
The Bible says
“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5 NLT
God planned us from way before you were conceived. It’s your spiritual birthright to be a Godpreneur. He has planned out your days and prepared the good things we’ll do.
Personally, I was born to help people find out what they were born to do, and help bring those visions to Life. That’s my identity. My destiny is still to be told, but I know it’s amazing! This is what keeps me going everyday through the grind.
What’s your calling? Are you letting destiny take its course so you can focus on the here and now?
We all can use destiny to fuel our born to do identities today.
Godpreneur Rule #57: Godpreneurs don’t control destiny, they use it to fuel their ‘born to do’ identity today.
