When Destiny Calls.
When God calls you in the direction of your destiny, people are not going to like it. Notice what the children of Israel said when Saul was appointed as their king, “How can this man save us?” (1 Samuel 10:27) They were so infuriated at God’s selection that they refused to honour him. Saul did not try and defend himself; he was silent; he knew that the Lord had anointed him for the assignment, and he didn’t feel the need to convince others of this.
It is not your job to assure people you have been called by God, if those around you can’t discern it, that’s their problem, not yours. In Proverbs 18:16 it states that your gift will make room for you. When you are operating in a spirit of excellence, your works will validate your calling, you won’t need to convince people with your words, they will see the manifestation.
When you are clear about your life’s purpose, man’s opinion of you will no longer have an affect on you. The presence of God will operate so strongly in your life that you will become like David and encourage yourself. One of the reasons why people find it so difficult to walk in the fullness of their calling is that they want everyone to like them, they want a pat on the back for everything they do, and when they don’t get it, they feel discouraged.

Taking destiny steps is like walking in shoes that don’t fit, it’s uncomfortable. When you start moving in the direction of your calling, you will feel out of place. Not just because of the critics, but because you have stepped out of your comfort zone. Growth is impossible in comfortable surroundings; your destiny will challenge you, and that challenge often comes in the form of criticism.
Destiny is not for the faint hearted, it is for bold and fearless people, as the saying goes, “it is for those who can take a licking and keep on ticking.” When destiny calls, expect opposition. But instead of allowing the opposition to hinder you, see it as a clear indication that you are heading in the right direction.
May God bless the hearers and the doers of His word.
