Can we really manipulate our destiny/fate?
Controlling and manipulating your destiny is the surest way to land flat on your face. The key to living with your destiny is to avoid excessive worrying and try not to control it. In scarcity, there are times that we act too harsh on ourselves. I’ll tell you to be kind to yourself. Search for help when you think you need it. And don’t try to hold back your suffering—feel it and live it so you can continue doing things right, learn, and live a happier life. For everyone have a divine destiny with God! And we know it’s wonderful.
For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.-Jeremiah 29:11
Everyone’s futures are great! We know that, but the longer it takes that we see the victory take place, the more it hard for us to achieve it. To destine is to decide something beforehand. So your fate or destiny is what God has pre-ordained for your future. Your destiny is the plan and program of God for your life. God did not send you here on earth to mess around. Your destiny is what you have been called for. You’ve been born with the expectation of heaven for your life.
For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay.-Habakkuk 2:3
While waiting for our destiny to be fulfilled, we let other people thwart our destiny. So beware, manipulators are everywhere they are like vultures attempting to rob, kill, steal and destroy the destiny that God has in store for us.
The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.-John 10:10
So believe in the Holy Spirit who will help you battle against those people who would try to manipulate and control you, attempting to pick-pocket you towards what God has destined you to become.
But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty… For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, … lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people. 2 Timothy 3:1-5
The Holy Spirit can Counsel us through a specialist in the field of spiritual abuse and false manipulators. Do not hesitate to get special counseling from people who are specially trained in rescuing people from all type of abuse. God used Daniel because he was specially trained, educated and equipped to perform a particular task.
Young men without any physical defect, handsome, showing aptitude for every kind of learning, well informed, quick to understand, and qualified to serve in the king’s palace. He was to teach them the language and literature of the Babylonians. Daniels 1:4
Ask the Lord to lead you to the specialist who had plenty of experiences. Don’t reinvent the wheels, identify their “models” and observe their style and actions, do not copy them but learn from their experiences.~~jhmenor
