Editor’s note: This is an excerpt from Aimee Colbert’s book, “A Sense of Destiny: From The Prison To The Palace,” which is available on Amazon.com.
Your destiny is your discovery not your decision.
Our lives are a gift and we are put here in order to give our lives as a gift back to God. So once we understand that God created us for a purpose, it’s our responsibility to fulfill whatever purpose that might be. So when you find out that you have a purpose, it’s time to stop thinking about what you would like to do with your life to make money or to fulfill your desires for accomplishment in some other way. It’s now time to learn how to pursue your real purpose.
Fortunately, our true purpose is actually something that we would already want to do. It’s something that we are already doing hidden in what we do every single day. I feel that once we decide that we want to do something opposite of what God would have us do, we are living in rebellion to God.
Not everyone knows that they have a purpose but if you know that you have a purpose and you decide that you don’t care about what that purpose is or that you’re not interested in doing what God would have you do, I feel you are living in open rebellion to the will of God. What God wants you to do should matter to you if you say that you love Him.
