What was I passionate about?
When someone is really passionate about something it
shows. I have to admit that I love watching the West Coast Eagles AFL team play. Whether I am at the game or watching at home,
I am usually pretty involved. I find myself jumping about and cheering loudly when they score a goal. Let me just say that
it is fairly obvious which team I am going for!
The same goes for my calling or destiny. I am very passionate about telling people that God loves them and wants to a part
of their lives. This drives me and is the major reason why I am involved with PASSION Australia. This passion moves me to
action and I am compelled to do something about it.
What naturally flows out of me?
Another good way of finding your destiny is to reflect on what naturally flows
out of you. By "flows out" I mean, what sort of things do you naturally do well and come easy to you?
Imagine if you are a teenager who is five foot six inches tall, with a solid build and you can do one hundred push ups
or chin ups with ease. It would be fairly safe to say that you might be a good gymnast. Or perhaps you are a naturally bubbly
person who loves talking to people, there is a good chance you might work in customer service or greet people as they come
into church. What naturally flows out of you can be a key to finding your destiny.
What do others see in me?
Mature Christians like your Pastor, your family members or other leaders in your church
can be a great source of wisdom and encouragement and they can also help you to find your calling or destiny.
I remember several years ago I met with my senior pastor. He said that he believed I had an evangelistic calling on my
life. Part of his reasoning was that he noticed the things I was passionate about and what came naturally from me, but it
was also part of his gifting to recognise and release people into ministry. That conversation gave me the confidence to move
forward when I felt God speak to me about founding PASSION Australia. He recognised my calling and encouraged and released
me into that area.
So wherever you are, I would encourage you to prayerfully seek God for your destiny. Remember to look
at the things your are passionate about, at what flows from you naturally and seek the counsel from the people God has placed
I thank You God that Your are a God who has a plan and destiny for my life. I also thank You that the Bible
says You have plans prosper me and not harm me. I pray and ask that in the coming weeks and months You will speak to me about
my destiny and the plan You have for my life. I pray that You will bring people around me to recognise and encourage me in
this area. Please help me now and always to live for You. Amen
