A date with destiny (May 2010)



Every significant thing in life has everything to do with a date for instance your birth date, your wedding date, your graduation/convocation date, even up to the date of your death.

Life is all about dates, no wonder why when a man meets a woman, the first question he asks is, can I take you for a date?
Some dates in our life brings joy while others bring sorrow. The wisest man that ever lived summarized it in Eccl 3:1 simply put “To everything there is a season (date) and a time (date) to every purpose under the Heaven.
The truth is that the end product of a man’s life is dependent on his date (time) management. There is even a course in our generation now called Time-management! Listen it is the discovery and application of the truth that makes a life of impact. If you can successfully discover the mystery of times and seasons you will live a life of guaranteed laughter!
It is times and seasons that brings about order in creation. God ordered his creations by giving a particular timing to the functions of the greater and lesser lights; (Gen 1:6) permit me to say therefore that He beautified His work by timing. He later crowned it all in Gen 8:22 telling us the secret to a fulfilled and abundant life while we are still here on earth.

“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest and cold and heat, and summer and winter and day and night shall not cease.
Every manufactured product has an expiry date so also every night or heat season has a cold and day season attached to it.
The wisest man that ever lived said: My Son get wisdom and in all your getting, get understanding (Prov 5:1, 4:5) before you can operate any gadget excellently, you need to understand how it functions; therefore to operate excellently in life, there is need to understand the principles of excellent living.

We need to always pray that we don’t miss our date with destiny. David on that day was in the bush and almost missed his date, but because he was a man of prayer the Holy Spirit made Samuel understand that the sons of Jesse weren’t finished 1st Sam 16:11. Say this prayer with me, oh! Lord let me be at the right place at the right time in Jesus name! Amen.

Joseph suffered many woes but when his date came, the king sent for him. Ps. 105:19. Until the time that his word came, the word of the LORD tried him. When you successfully stand in and arrive for your divine date, the king always sends for you!
After David’s date with destiny at the battlefield with Goliath, the king sent for him, after Esther’s date with destiny at the house of preparation of virgins the King sent for her! I want you to realize that not only did the king send for all these people, the king choose them for that vacant position!!
My friends in this season of your date with destiny, the king will send for you and choose you to fill up that vacancy in this generation!
