PRO 16:9  In his heart a man plans his course, but the
LORD determines his steps. 

Your destiny is the sum of all of the overall circumstances or conditions in life (including everything that happens to you). We also call destiny your fate or your portion. However, your starting place is not a determinant of your destiny

EXO 2:5  And the daughter of Pharaoh came down to wash
herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river’s side; and
when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.6  And when she had opened it, she saw the
child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said,
This is one of the Hebrews‘ children.

Exo 2:1 says that a Levite married a Levite and the woman conceived and gave birth to a son. A simple story but in terms of the world the child was born under a death sentence so his destiny was to die as a babe.  The word of God says in  Isa 42:8 that God will not give His glory to another so God only God could take one who was destined for death and destruction and raise him up so that all would know his name, Moses. Instead of dying as a baby God caused Moses a Hebrew slave to be reared in the Egyptian court of the pharaoh as royal prince. God elevated him to be the deliverer, the receiver of the law and the mediator of the covenant.

The life of Moses is cogent evidence that where your life starts does not determine where your life will lead or who you will be. Moses started out as a slave floating on the river but he went from being a slave to being a prince in a matter of minutes. He went from being royalty to being a fugitive in one violent act. He went from being a fugitive to being a husband, father and shepherd of his father in law’s flock. God a plan for Moses and every event and each act led to the fulfillment of that plan.  All of his ups and downs were in preparation for him to go to the back side of the mountain where people didn’t normally go. God anointed a man who was a fugitive with a record to be a pastor, deliverer, the receiver of the law, and the mediator of the covenant to lead more than a million person congregation thru the desert.

DEU 28:6  You will be blessed
when you come in and blessed when you go out.

Regardless to who you are and the circumstances of your birth or family heritage when you dwell in the presence of the Lord, He insures your destiny so that you always receive your portion. Participation in the promises is not a matter of ancestry or merit but it is a matter of connection. By virtue of the relationship that you have with God He places you in an exalted position and protects you with strength that is beyond human.  Things that don’t happen in the usual course of events began to happen. You will not be able to predict the pattern and the flow of the blessing because blessings flow out of season. You will be blessed going in and out and everything that you touch will prosper.

 Is there anything that is impossible for God?

    I love this very positive post. It reminds me of my favorite Bible “character”, Joseph, and one of my favorite scriptures, Jeremiah 29:11.
