The purpose of destiny coaching is tohelp you understand you in Christ and your humanness. We must die to self, and allow Christ to bring us back to life in him. Being in Christ makes you alive to the greater realities of the Christ that lives in you. Learning of Jesus and his "way of being" shapes you more and more not only into his image and likeness, but brings a wellness and wholeness that you were meant to know now-not just in the age to come. Living the cross-shaped life means when we die to self, we truly live; not in and of ourselves but from the inside out, and within the community of those who surrounds us everyday. That is our truest power and our truest identity-Christ in us the hope of Glory-the hope of resurrection, the hope of life everlasting affecting the world in which we live.
According to Oxfords dictionary: destiny: is the events that will necessarily happen to a particular person or thing in the future.
But I would say that destiny is linked to knowing who you are now and who you are becoming in Christ and in the earth. You were made for now but you can't flourish now, without allowing God to put you back together from the inside out. This involves many things, but one of the first places we will begin are the ancient paths of our fathers and mothers in the faith.
“Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls." Jeremiah 6:16
"This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength,
but you would have none of it." Isaiah 30:15
The secular malaise of this world and its ideologies has invaded all of society-even the church of Jesus Christ; and instead of just finding our worth, salvation, satisfaction and identity in Christ alone, we are longing and searching for it amongst the dead things of this world and not the living God himself.
"Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]." Hebrews 12:2
"Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wants to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and be following Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it. But whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what will a person be profited if he gains the whole world, but forfeits his life? Or what will a person give in-exchange-for his life?"
God doesn't call us once to follow him- notice the tense of the text- it's continual- we are to be daily "following him."
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."
“For you 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.”
“You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it."
I am the Bread of Life (John 6:35)
I am the Light of the World (John 8:12)
I am the Door (John 10:9)
I am the Good Shepherd (John 10:11,14)
I am the Resurrection and the Life (John 11:25)
I am the Way and the Truth and the Life (John 14:6)
I am the Vine (John 15:1,5)
But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.
Matthew 6:33 AMPC
We cannot know destiny apart from fully embodying the reality and truth of this scripture. Jesus Christ is our destiny! We are meant to be fully identified and established in Him, and from that place of identity, destiny is birthed in our lives.
Matthew 6:33 is the foundation scripture and truth to build our lives upon. Once we become new creations in Christ, we are now positioned for our destiny in Him, as we seek first the Kingdom and all His righteousness.
