Every believer is in a process, and I believe that what motivates us to continue in the love of God is a personal sense of destiny. Each believer is heading toward God’s ultimate purpose: eternal perfection. “He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6).
Through this personal sense of destiny, we guard against developing negative attitudes such as familiarity or withdrawing when we are tired. People are quietly able to withstand unimaginable adversity when they are motivated by a personal sense of destiny and an eternal purpose.
Think of it: We were predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son! This sense of destiny with an eternal purpose goes way beyond the pleasures of this life, far beyond natural success and materialistic gain (even though that can glorify God). We must never lose this sense of our personal destiny.
Always allow the breath of your eternal purpose to give life to your soul.
