I am becoming more convinced that it is crucial to find your destiny in life. Once you discover your God-given destiny, then you must pursue it until you get your breakthroughs.
By definition, your destiny is something bigger than you. It isn’t something you can come up with on your own. It’s what you were put on this earth by God to get done. You can go after plenty of careers, but none of them may be your destiny in life.
The mistake many people make is that they feel they must get a job with the most money-making potential. They go after the jobs that seem the most popular. They get excited when they see those paychecks coming in. They fall for the trap that the big money is what it is all about.
Responsibilities build up and the expenses to raise a family get larger and larger. Thinking about what you were placed on this earth for tends to get lost in all this shuffle.
Find Your Destiny Miracle
Then something miraculous happens. You start realizing that you are in the middle of your best years and you start wondering what you really were supposed to do with your life.
If you are over 50, is it too late to find your destiny? The answer to that question is most definitely NO. I know that for a fact because I am 52 years old and I still haven’t achieved my destiny.
FIND YOUR DESTINY – MEN OVER 50
Men over 50, you are uniquely positioned to find your destiny and then achieve it. This is true for several reasons.
First, God never gives up on us. Moses was about 80 years old before he found his destiny and fulfilled God’s calling on his life.
Second, the life experiences of 50 years can bring much wisdom and the ability to handle pressure better. It also will hopefully enable you to work better with others. Ronald Reagan was 56 years old when he became the governor of California and was a grand old 70 years when he became President of the United States. Wow!
You tell me whether you think Ronald Reagan’s true destiny was playing the Gipper in Knute Rockne or playing a significant role in the tearing down of the Berlin Wall and seeing the Cold War with Russia come to an end.
Third, after 50 years you are more focused and determined to accomplish something meaningful with your life. Abraham Lincoln was 52 years old
when he became President. He was determined to see an end to slavery in America and endured the anguish of several lost elections and failed businesses before he achieved a place of authority that allowed him to shape the course of a nation.
Fourth, many men over 50 years of age have learned the value of thinking beyond themselves and creating opportunities to benefit others. Mahatma
Gandhi was 52 when he took over leadership of the Indian National Congress which led numerous campaigns to improve the conditions of the millions
of destitute poor in India.
It is within this fourth reason that we find a true key to help you find your destiny. Your God-given destiny will always point to improving the lives of others and not just meeting your own needs.
If you are a man over 50, do not count yourself out. There are destiny teams waiting to help you FIND YOUR DESTINY now. If you are under 50 years
old, your youthfulness will still be appreciated and welcome.
