Journey to Destiny Fulfillment requires Strength. The strength of the Spirit.
Strength that produces extra-ordinary result is internal. And it is always generated from within. It comes through the Holy Spirit.
Many people are limited in life because they depend on external strength. They rely on their muscles, intellects, brainpower, jobs, certificates, human connections and experiences.
But if you are really passionate about your destiny , the first and most important understanding you need is to acknowledge that your own strength can do nothing.
“No man can prevail by his strength (1Sam 2:9). Your strength is limited and will limit you in life if you depend on it.”
There’s a story about internal and external strength demonstrated by Elijah and king Ahab (1 Kings 18:41-46).
This story describes how strength is generated. It also reveals the limitation of external strength and the unlimited, surpassing, exceptional, outstanding and superiority of internal strength.
Ahab, the king rode on chariot and went ahead of Elijah. During this ancient period chariots probably represented the principal strength of the Israelite army in open battle.
They could run at a very high speed either to weary the enemies pursuing them or to catch up with enemies from escaping. But the Scripture says, “The hand of the Lord came upon Elijah and he girded up his loins and ran ahead of Ahab to the entrance of Jezreel.”
The hand of the Lord that came upon Elijah is strength of the Spirit.
Though Ahab rode on his chariot and went ahead of Elijah who ran with his legs, yet as the strength of God came upon Elijah, he outran Ahab.
You can never imagine how well you can achieve for God when you depend on the Strength given by the Holy Spirit.
The king with his expensive Royce Roy Car rode on his external strength. But the prophet with his legs rode on internal strength supplied by God and still surpassed the one who rode on man-made external strength.
That’s outstanding proof of God’s power that can be released to an ordinary person who depends on the strength of the Holy Spirit.
Elijah demonstrated to us that our internal, God-given strength is what we need to surpass in our generation, achieve the unbelievable, do the impossible, and carry out great exploits.
I hope you’ll also take the strength factor highly from now. And that you will stop depending on your external supplies of strength – relying on your abilities and expertise.
But you’ll begin to draw strength from the Holy Spirit to be internally equipped for exploits in your generation.
Tapping into this God’s provision of strength that comes from the Holy spirit towards fulfillment of Destiny is a personal responsibility. When we tap into this provision, we will enjoy speed, ease and wonders as we pursue our destiny fulfillment.
