MILTON MONDAY: A PEOPLE OF DESTINY


A People of Destiny
By Milton Dykes
Someone said that destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. It is not something to be waited for; it is something to be achieved. The Apostle Paul put it this way: "I press toward the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 3:4, NKJV). Two words stand out in obtaining destiny. They are press and achieve. Too many people have the notion that great destinies are without effort and determination. That is just not so. God's Word does not support such an idea.
What can you do to achieve God's best--His highest destiny?
1. Be focused on His plan.
2. Be faithful to His assignment.
3. Be fearless to risk according to His challenge.
4. Be fervent with holy passion.
5. Be forceful and firm in your determination.
Denis Waitley says in his book, The Double Win:
"Losers live in the past, for the future. They see a problem in every solution.
Winners learn from the past, live in the present, and set goals for the future. They seek a solution in every problem.
Double winners learn from the past and work in the present to accomplish goals that benefit everyone's future. They help others solve their problems."
Milton, here: Be a double winner. That is God's plan for you. We are a people of destiny by both His choice and our decision.

Love the five point plan! I will have to dwell for a while on the "be fearless to risk according to His challenge." So good. So necessary. Thanks for the uplift again today.

I'm a few days behind but boy, was this right on time! I especially like Winners learn from the past, live in the present, and set goals for the future. They seek a solution in every problem.

Let's determine to be winners! In marriage, in life, in whatever we set our hearts and minds to do.
