You cannot spell destiny without the "i." Your destiny is not possible without you. You have to make a decision to fulfill the destiny God planned for you in Psalm 139:13-17. Decision has two "i's" which the Lord showed me this morning stands for "I will" and "I act." God showed me that:
- "I will" is a judgment. It is a decision.
- "I act" is the sign that the decision is real.
- We often fool ourselves when we say we decided when there is no corresponding action. This is more accurately defined as "I wish."
Your will determines if you will pursue God's will and purpose for your life. If we look at God's example in Ezekiel 12:25 and 28 we find God saying, "For I am the LORD. I speak, and the word which I speak will come to pass; it will no more be postponed; for in your days, O rebellious house, I will say the word and perform it," says the Lord GOD.'" There are four elements.
- I Am - Exodus 3:14
- I speak - Hebrews 11:3
- I will - Genesis 2:18
- I perform - Ezekiel 12:25 & Ezekiel 37:14
The first place in scripture the spirit of wisdom is mentioned is found in Exodus 31:2-3 where the Spirit of God has given Bezaleel wisdom, understanding and knowledge to build the Tabernacle of Moses. Bottom line, wisdom begins with a relationship with the Spirit of God. God's wisdom will give us knowledge and understanding as to how the world works. In Matthew 16:18-20 Jesus says He has given us the keys to the kingdom.
The Word for 2022
The word for 2022 is framed by two births. Rather than share all of the details here I'm going to encourage you to watch the video (click here for Destiny & Decisions 2022 on Youtube). The first birth which came on the last day of 2021 was truly a miracle birth. Here's a copy of the text that provides some context for the miracle birth on December 31, 2021.
In the second birth, God uses the names of the mom (Sarah Church) and her baby (Genevieve Adele Church) to speak to God's purpose and call for His Church in 2022. She was born on 1/1/22 at 10:45AM.
You'll find the following scriptures and definitions factor heavily into the word.
- John 1:1
- John 1:22
- Acts 10:45
- Genevieve name means "woman of the race."
- Adele means noble.
- Church of course refers to the ekklessia
- Hebrews 12:1-2
- 2 Timothy 4:7
- John 20:22 (Tim McClellan)
- Ezekiel 37:7-14 (Tim McClellan)
- Isaiah 22:20-22
- Matthew 16:18-19
- Amos 5:15
