Topic: Your Destiny Is Yours Alone
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV)
Joel Osteen Devotional 5 August 2021 Message
People can’t see what God sees in you. He sees your potential. He knows what you’re capable of. He’s the one who breathed life into you. Don’t let people talk you out of His plans for you. Don’t let family members convince you that you don’t have what it takes. Don’t count on your friends to keep you encouraged. They may not get behind you, and they may even try to talk you out of it. You don’t have to have other people.
When your destiny calls, that’s between you and God. Some things you have to go alone. You have to say, “God, others may not be for me, but I know You are for me. You put this promise in my heart. I’m not going to be moved by who’s not cheering me on. I know that You being for me is more than enough to get me to where I’m supposed to be.” Keep believing, keep being your best, and keep moving forward. Your destiny is calling.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You have plans for my life, plans that are full of hope and an abundant future. Thank You that what You are calling me to is not dependent upon other people. I believe that You are for me, and that is all I need to take me to my destiny. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
