This can be a challenging question. Many people do not want to take responsibility for owning the destiny God has made them for. I see people often avoid the hard questions and find it so much easier to live in the routine, sleepiness of religion.
These ‘hard’ questions are actually the ones that lead to life and freedom as we release who God has made us to be:
- What are your core values, those things that truly are most important to you in life (tombstone-type values)?
- What passions and purposes has God shaped in you through your experiences and His Word in you?
- How are you best equipped to serve this world with Kingdom purposes?
- Where is God sending you to serve Him? (This could refer to geography, but also to what place of influence, or what group of people, or what vocational situation, etc.)
Does answering these questions bring immediate movement in the direction of our destiny? Not, but it’s a start in hearing His voice speaking uniquely to us. Then the adventure begins as we daily listen to His leadings (and His truths within us) and walk that out. Daily allowing Him to direct us into His full destiny. Can life be any fuller than that?
