ACHIEVE GREATNESS WITH YEMI AND BIMBO DAVIDS
Day 21 November 2019
Your destiny is determined by God
Scripture Reference: “Listen to me, you descendants of Jacob, all the remnant of the people of Israel, you whom I have upheld since your birth, and have carried since you were born. Even to your old age and grey hairs, I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you” – Isaiah 46: 3-4 NIV
You are a child of destiny. Your future is not determined by your parents, culture, background or gender. Your greatness is determined by what God has destined for you.
If greatness were determined by background or how educated you are, not many people on earth would stand a chance, not even Jesus’ disciples. They were described as ‘ignorant and unlearned men’ (Acts 4: 13), but the distinguishing factor about them was that “they had been with Jesus’. And from this group of unlearned people, great miracles were done.
You may not be called into the ministry as a pastor or prophet but it is obvious that having Christ in your life gives you a great chance of becoming a sign and a wonder.
God actually delights in choosing people that ordinarily would not stand a chance of being anything in this world so that He can amaze the obviously ‘gifted & talented’, and so that He can have all the glory.
If greatness were also determined by who our parents are, and how much worth they have in the society, someone like Esther would not even be named among the greats in the Bible. She was an orphan, who was also a servant in a foreign land. Talk about the least of the least! But by God’s agenda, she became the queen of the empire and was used to preserve her people from alienation.

Prayer: Make me know Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You, I wait all the day.
