What Is Destiny?

grenepages_Sanmi Akintayo WORD ALIVE_What Is DestinyGrowing up, destiny was one of the most ambiguous words to us in the Christian circle. We heard people mention it, but no one really seems to have a clear understanding of what destiny was all about. The meaning of destiny was elusive to us. 
I have heard people equate fate to destiny. Fate is not destiny. Fate is like saying, “what will be, will be” irrespective of what you do or what you don’t do. Fate is perceived to be an unexplainable force that makes something to happen to people irrespective of their choice, decision, action or desire. That doesn't describe destiny. 
As believers, we should not think of destiny like the world thinks of fate because if you think that way you will accept anything the devil throws your way in the name of destiny. Destiny is not fate and fate is not destiny. In fact, as far as we are concerned as believers, there is nothing as fate; we only have destinies in God. Every man has a destiny in God.
What then is destiny?
Your destiny is the sum total of the PURPOSE, the PLAN and the WILL of God for your life. What do I mean by this? Your destiny includes all of the purpose, the plan and the will of God for you. Your destiny is made up of what God purposed that you should become and do on the earth. It also includes the plan of God for you and what God wants you to do on the earth. Sometimes, the words destiny and purpose are interchangeably used. Also, destiny can sometimes be used to refer to the plan of God for your life or the will of God for you. My concern here is not the semantics of those words but to help you get an understanding of what your destiny is. 
God has a purpose for your life. He has plans that He wants you to fulfill. When you walk in the purpose, plan and will of God for your life, you are fulfilling your destiny. If you don’t, irrespective of how successful you might be, then you are not fulfilling your destiny.
Your destiny is from God and from God alone. Your destiny is not a product of your circumstances and situation. God has a plan for your life. Your problems or the environment in which you were born doesn’t determine your destiny. God already predestined you for His plan and purpose long before you were conceived in your mother’s womb. 
Ephesians 2:10 AMP
For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned before hand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].
Ephesians 2:10 NLT
For we are GOD’S masterpiece, He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Do you see now? Your destiny is from God. Your destiny doesn't depend on who your parents are. It doesn't matter whether they are poor or rich, or if they are believers or not. God determines your destiny and where you were born or who your parents are can’t alter it. Each one of us has a destiny in God.
Your destiny is the good life that God prearranged and made ready for you to live Eph 2:10 AMP.

Your destiny is a good life in God. Don’t let anyone tell you that you have a negative or evil destiny. God didn't create anyone with a negative destiny. All our destinies in God are good and pleasant ones. It is the lie of the devil and religious misconception as well as unfounded myths that tell people that their destiny is negative or evil. God has planned that you should live a good life. He is a good God that has destined each one of us to live a good life after the manner of His life. If you have been religiously brainwashed into thinking that the negative things that are happening in your life is your destiny, it is time to spit out that garbage and live the good and blessed life that God has ordained for you.
