Your part is to jump and keep jumping. Jump into the arms of the One who knows, the One who created you with a destiny. Jump into a destiny that was suited, not just “for” you, but was created “with” you. So often we behave as if we were pulled from dust, only to then be considered for a purpose. That could not be further from the truth. Your soul and its purpose emerged together, not separately. Read Jeremiah 51:19-23 and acknowledge its prevailing pattern. Here it is: “With you!” Yes, you were created with a purpose; it is WITH YOU as His partner that He fulfills the destiny of the universe. What an infinitely powerful and profoundly humbling reality!
Your destiny has been woven into your DNA. Yet most of you have avoided its discovery. It seems so much easier to live small. Yes, the implanted vision of your ever-loving Father for your life is available to access, but you must prefer “meat over the milk” if you wish to step into your destiny (Read 1 Corinthians 3:1-3). Oh, and we would be amiss not to mention that Yahweh means for you to jump into the fire to find it. Yes, it is through the fire you will find your vision (Read Daniel 3:14-28). Do you think that Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego lament their decision to trust Yahweh? “Our Mighty One whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace.” (v. 17) And still, so many of you tend to feel the heat of the flames and either flee or bow down to the false “god” of expedience. Yahweh would rather you jump into the fire!
Keep jumping, keep reaching, and keep extending your conscious behavior, so that you might know for exactly what purpose you were created! Soon and very soon the only safety net you require will be hearing His command to come (Matthew 14:28-29). Once you know and understand the purpose of the fire of Yahweh, stepping onto the water to walk will be a soothing and calming experience, one in which you jump to reach, rather than jump to be caught. You have a destiny loved one; it’s as sure as you breathe. Ask your Father to reveal it. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full. (John 16:24)Click to listen highlighted text!
