Salvation as it relates to destiny is the God-given power to become what God has eternally decreed you were before the foundation of the world. Grace is God’s divine enablement to accomplish predestined purpose. When the Lord told Paul, “My grace is sufficient for thee…” (2 Cor. 12:9), His power was not intimidated by Paul’s circumstances.
You are empowered by God to accomplish goals that transcend human limitations! It is important that each person God uses realizes that they are able to accomplish what others cannot only because God gives them the grace to do so. Problems are not really problems to a person who has the grace to serve in a particular area.
The excellency of our gifts is of God and not of us. He doesn’t need nearly as much of our contribution as we think He does. So it is God who works out our internal destinies. He gives us the power to become who we are eternally and internally.
