From Adversity to a Greater Destiny

“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.” ‭‭(Romans‬ ‭8:18‬)

When Herod learnt about the birth of a new King in Bethlehem, he was threatened and wanted to find Jesus in order to kill him. Herod killed every child in Bethlehem to try to destroy the promise of Jesus Christ. (Matthew 2)

Joseph’s brothers tried to kill him because of the destiny that God had placed in him. They changed their minds about killing him, put him in a pit and then sold him into slavery. (Genesis 35)

The King of Egypt was threatened by the birth of the sons of the Israelites and demanded that all the male children should be killed. God had a great purpose for Moses and hid him in the King’s palace right in plain sight. (Exodus 2-3)

David was anointed King and his first battles started with wild animals and then Goliath. His victory over the enemies and his skill in battle later caused envy in Saul who tried to kill him. (1 Samuel 19)

We know the history of these great men in the bible and understand that they could not die until they had accomplished the destiny and purpose that God had placed in them. Herod could not kill Jesus and he lived to establish the message of salvation and died to redeem us back to God. (Matthew 27)

Joseph could not die because He would become Prime Minister in Egypt. He saved the country and his family from a great famine and made a way for them to live in a new country. (Genesis 46)

Moses lived to lead Israel out of captivity in Egypt and Saul could not kill David because of God’s promise that he would become. King. (2 Samuel 5)

No one can destroy the destiny and purpose that God has for you and remember that great trials will come to those who have a great destiny. This trial is sent to prepare you for where you are going and if you can endure it, God will bring to pass what has been spoken concerning you.
