Role Of Destiny And Religion In The Life Of A Man

Role Of Destiny And Religion In The Life Of A Man

I have seen people been criticized for sharing their sincere thoughts on certain topics especially when it pertains to religion but I refuse to allow anything or anyone to kill the voice calling out from deep inside of me, for God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)

I will like to talk briefly on two very sensitive topics; destiny and religion.

Permit me to begin with a definition of both.

'Destiny' is the events that will necessarily happen to a particular person or thing in the future while 'Religion' is the belief in and worship of superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods.

That being established, many sadly have misplaced destiny for religion (vice versa) and there's bound to be havoc in the life of a man until this is understood and properly addressed. You can't substitute one for the other, they work hand in hand whether we like it or not.

Moving further, I will like to swiftly establish a point as I remind us that every man was created with destiny before religion (Christianity) was introduced by the Westerners. Please come with me...

At creation, man's primary destiny is to be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. (Genesis 1:28). That however became questionable when Adam ate the forbidden fruit. We lost all that privilege and had to suffer for everything. Even from the land that was given to us freely, through painful toil, we ate. (Genesis 3:17)

Then, came religion (#Christianity) through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Before this, Idols were worshipped, evil altars were created and covenants were established. The summary of it all is that the destiny of man was altered and truncated and that's what the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ came to do; to redeem US.

There was no mistake with our creation. Everything God made was good and perfect but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way. (Matthew 13:25 KJV).

Please follow me carefully...

Many destinies due to the wickedness in the world have been altered (especially in #Africa). I mean, the depth of evil in the black continent is unfathomable compared to other parts of the world but that's a story for another day. Some (evil covenants and manipulation) were conceived/established by the ignorance of our parents just as in the case of Jabez.

Many today were destined to be doctors and lawyers but finding it difficult to feed off the menial jobs they find themselves doing and quite frankly, nothing will change no matter how educated they are unless they prayerfully change that destiny as #Jabez did.

Unfortunately, many still blame their misfortune on the government but it goes way deeper than that. And just before I continue, permit me to ask a few questions relating to this:

Wasn't it God that created Jabez?

How come he was destined for sorrow?

We all know how miserable his life was before the encounter that changed everything, wasn't he a child of God?

Please hold that thought as I continue...

A man's life can change at any time but first, we must understand -that he (Jabez) acknowledged his misfortune (unfortunate destiny) before he could provoke the change.

Sadly, many today disregard their's, thus wasting away, hiding under the pretence of being a child of God. They believe ALL has been taken care of when Christ shed His blood on the cross of Calvary (which was actually) but forgot it came with a price and living in #sin defeats that purpose.

Sin is the major weapon by which the devil cheats man of his great destiny and we all know him to be the accuser of brethren.

Don't we?

However, how many of us can boast of a blameless life in Christ and that's only a scenario out of many, by which man makes it impossible for religion to override destiny.

I conclude, destiny till today still has a powerful hold on what a man will become, religion only qualifies him for a new life through Christ Jesus, which endows him with the grace and arsenal of weapons to change his destiny as Jabez did.

The fulfilment of destiny is a battle of life, a conscious and intentional one for that matter. You must fight your way through and that's where religion comes to play.

Your being a child of God does not mean you do not have demons to fight. Remember, agreements were made long before you were born and it's not a child's play to overturn such covenants.

Many were ever since concluded and it only takes the grace and mercy of God, with, of course, a consistent and deliberate effort prayerfully to break away and break through.

Thank you
