This is a season of understanding your destiny and life purpose! But where do you even begin?
I’ve often said that discovering your destiny is like working on a connect-the-dots drawing.
When you look at the dots individually, you’ll probably have trouble understanding the big picture. But when you connect the dots and step back — suddenly everything makes sense!
Plus, God embeds hidden clues about your destiny into your daily life. Here are a few to look out for.
What are you good at?
All of us — yes, you — have been given a measure of talent. As a prophetic life coach, I’ve heard a lot of people say things like:
“I’m not good at anything.” Or, “I have no talent.”
But really, it isn’t that you don’t have any gifts or talent. You may just not think that what God has given you is important.
Think about it. Are you wonderful with children?
Trust me, not everybody is! Or are you great at organization, taking big ideas and breaking them down into small steps? You need to know how valuable that is! And, how valuable YOU are!
Many gifts or talents aren’t the kind where you stand on a stage, but they’re important and needed for what God wants to do in the Earth!
What are you drawn to?
Maybe there’s something you’ve always been drawn to, but you don’t necessarily have the talent to do it yet.
God has told us over and over again that starting small will produce larger-than-life results!
“He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you,”“ Matthew 17:20 NIV.
“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously,” 2 Corinthians 9:6 NIV.
Let your interest in this particular talent or gift be your seed. Begin taking small steps every day to grow this seed and watch how it starts to grow. It may surprise you!
What makes you light up?
How much time do you spend each day doing things that make you feel joy? Many people are simply going through the motions of life and not really living intentionally.
Decide to do one thing each day that simply makes you happy. This could be going for a long walk, reading a book, writing, drawing, etc.
There doesn’t have to be a purpose to why you’re doing it. Just do it for the joy of being alive!
Whom do you admire?
Who are you naturally drawn to? When you think of these people you say, “I’d like to be more like them.”
Notice the characteristics they demonstrate. Are they bold? Are they brave? Are they trustworthy, kind or virtuous?
You’re drawn to these people for a reason. Once you figure out why that is, it can give you a clue to the type of person God has called you to be!
Connect them all together. What do you see?
Take these four clues to your destiny and connect them together! What picture do you see? Let me know in the comments below.
Get ready to finally see the full picture of your destiny!
