Who knows, that there are unchangeable variables in the Word, but dear friend, to all degrees, you pretty much determine your own future. God may present His plan for your life via prophecy, Word, Vision, Rhema, etc.
But will you stay the course till the fulfillment of the plan God has for you? The progressive Destiny of the Soul deals with issues that can help you along the way, to hear correctly, and follow-through.
What can detour us from God's plan? Simply sin. Why does God's children not enter their Divine Destiny if we sin, does God not love us anymore? No, but there is another character out there called Satan that will take action against your action. Remember this truth, there is always, a reaction against action.
I had to learn this the hard way...So then, if we make quality choices, this sets our destiny and God-given calling in motion. Abstaining from any form of futile choices will reap its harvest...
What is a mistake? Quite simply what it says, "you take amiss". Let me explain, with every choice you make you collect unto yourself..true? Many collect unto themselves pain and sorrow, to sin means to miss the mark, or God intended will and purpose for your life. Can we recover from a mistake, yes, but usually there is a time frame process for recovery from sin. What I mean by that, well, it took Adam 4000 years to recover from sin.
Whatever a man sows that he reaps. Sow sin, your return for this pocket investment is death. Choose to do the right thing, and you earn a far greater exceeding wage eternally and in this life on this earth.
Some have this idea, that we are rewarded for all our Good one day in Heaven. That is semi-true, but not the ultimate, these spiritual laws will work now but render eternal benefit. Many that only believe in heavenly treasure, often drift away, with no sure hope for today and tomorrow.
We also learn that there is an eternal plan for man and an individual plan for man. What happens when you get married, well firstly God put people together, Jesus said, what God joined together, let no man separate...amen God has a collective family plan, but like the prodigal, some leave under the wrong circumstances, and pursue their own interests. But don’t worry, they will come back. In these last days, God will return the Hearts of the Sons to the Fathers...
God just reminded me of something else. When you where a sperm (Seed), this contained not only the genetic sequence of your makeup, like looks, etc. But at this point, your spiritual destiny and essentials is evident, but most importantly God's plan for your life.
For example, if you plant a daisy seed, you’re gonna end up with a "daisy", sorry for this terminology, but if you plant a rose, you might just end up with a beautiful fragrance, sometimes, we inherit from our parent's involuntary attributes up to the 4th generation.
But then, you get the God-intervened plan for your life. Regardless of your genetic makeup, God can change all this for you. Sometimes, God will allow you, like a Good Father, to be like a prodigal, but when you have wasted your life on unseeing pleasure, and you end up feeding the swine, you can at that moment collect enough sense with the help of the Holy Spirit, to return to your home.
So what happens when you are called and intentionally move from the call, well, if you are detoured, you can return, but your calling may be adjusted according to the present circumstances.
Let me give you an example, lets say you moved to India and started a family there, where God wanted you in South Africa, instead of feeding people braaivleis, you might up feeding people bananas..hehe God may keep you in India and adjust your calling. What happens when you are married with children and even if this is God-ordained as it always is. And let's say you get divorced, well, there God will amazingly adjust your calling, sometimes for the greater even..amen...it is amazing how amazing God's Grace is...
Then you get levels of God's plan and will. Firstly the perfect will of God, then the acceptable will of God, then lastly the good will of God. I don’t know about you, but I want to be in the perfect will of God for my life.
What is the perfect will of God for our lives, when your actions align with the Word in you, what is the acceptable will for your life, when you still operate in the dimensions of your call but have lost way along the way, and lastly the allowed will of God I believe is where you still have salvation.
Don't lose heart if you moved from the perfect will of God for your life. We have all sinned and fallen short of God's intent. Can we return to the perfect will of God...YES! Search the Word in you and let your actions align with this. The Word says: "Your Word is a lamp unto my feet" it also says, the footsteps of the righteous are ordered by the LORD...praise God.
I once heard someone say, once you were anointed and lose your perfect call, that the Anointing will never come back. I have to say, this is not true. The gifting is without repentance.
God also says He will never leave you nor forsake you, He did not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance, it is not the healthy that needs a physician but the sick, where sin abounds Grace much more abound...Praise God! He came to heal the brokenhearted, to set at liberty them that are abruised, to give you beauty for ashes, to declare the ACCEPTABLE year of the Lord in your Life...
Many are selective listeners, let me explain, some, like I used to be, would only want to hear what they want to hear, in other words, mentally ready to receive anything that does not hold contradiction to your own desire.
This is can also be a measure of self-opinionated thinking. Meaning, if God speaks to you to Join Bible School, which is everyone’s call, selectively, many refuse this higher call.
