BELIEVE IN YOUR DESTINY by Dr. Christian Harfouche
JESUS WANTS TO USE YOU
Now let me state something that’s going to sound sacrilegious to you: If Jesus wants to talk today, He’s going to have to use your mouth. If He wants to rebuke a storm today, He’s going to have to use your mouth, and He’s going to have to use your heart in faith. The Lord wants to use us, because He said:
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” – Luke 10:19
Who has this power, and what kind of power is it? We have it, and it’s power to heal sicknesses and cast out devils.
EXERCISING UNLIMITED POWER
Our power is unlimited down here, because Jesus said, “All power is given unto me in Heaven and in Earth” (Matthew 28:18). That means all power belongs to whom? Jesus. And to whom did He give it? To us. It belongs to us! When the disciples woke Jesus up, they complained, “Don’t You care that we’re dying?” That’s a guilt trip if I ever heard one. Have you ever tried to put a guilt trip on God in your prayers? “Don’t You care what I’m going through?” We think we’re going to get a response from God. “Don’t You care that we’re dying?” The disciples didn’t get any sympathy. Instead, Jesus rebuked the wind and said to the water, “Peace, be still.” Jesus was a man anointed by the Holy Spirit, so He did not talk to the Sea of Galilee as God. People think, “God can talk to the sea,” but that’s not what Jesus did. He talked to that body of water as a man. As a matter of fact, who has authority over the elements here on Earth? Man through God does. I know this seems “far out,” but it’s in the Bible. Jesus got up out of a deep sleep and said to the wind, “Stop,” and to the sea, “Peace, be still!” Calm prevailed.
A REMNANT WILL LEAD
And there will be a remnant in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ who will be strong and will take the headship of our authority upon Earth. Furthermore, they will be able to divide this inheritance with other believers. The Bible says, “Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises….” (2 Peter 1:4). What are they? The verse continues, “that by these ye might be partakers [or associates] of the divine nature….” The original Greek says, “partners with God in His divine nature.” This gives me partnership with God. When I feed on God’s Word, it is spirit and life to me. It goes into me and forms God’s nature on the inside of me. Why can I talk to things the way I do? God’s nature is in me. It’s natural for God in me to give orders, and it causes things to work. Nothing the devil can do will stop me from reaching the place where I’m going in God — nothing, nothing, nothing!
BELIEVE IN YOUR DESTINY
In light of our partnership with God, can you persuade investors to come and help in your business? Can you talk to promotion in life? Can you call the things which be not as though they were? If you merely think about it, without speaking to it, it won’t happen. You can’t rebuke the storm silently. Some will argue, “Well, I don’t want to say, ‘Peace, be still,’ and nothing happens.” You’re already in fear. You’ve got to learn to speak out of your inward convictions. You’ve got to learn to believe in your destiny! Living a miraculous Christian life puts you in a realm where things work out. Does that mean you won’t encounter persecution? No. Does that mean you won’t have obstacles? Absolutely not. You’ll have them. But through the obstacles, you’ll be victorious, and you’ll laugh at the obstacles.
Repeat this confession: “I am going all the way. I’m not going to die prematurely. I’m not going to die sick. I’m not going to live in poverty. I’m going to fulfill my destiny. I believe in my God-given future.”
