Long journeys can create deep hunger. That is true metaphorically as well as nutritionally. For some reason after long day of travel, I develop a hankering for buffalo wings, the spicier the better. I am thankful for the invention of voice activated, GPS guided, smart phones that can lead you to a desired destination by voice request. One time, I made the request to navigate to the nearest wings place and could almost smell the heavenly mixture of mango and habanero. But instead of leading me to my destination, the reply I received was “location not found”.
My personal journey guide was confused because I had turned off my location services while on my flight. I could not be found, so I could not be directed. If you don’t know who you are, you can easily lose your way in life. Before you can discover your destiny, you must understand your identity.
There are some things that will change along your journey in life: function, assignments, and skills are all adaptable. There are three things that form your identity that will never change because they were imprinted into your DNA by God.
He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.
