Our Destiny is being shaped by a series of Defining Moments

  • Destiny -Where I’m Headed

  • Move on to the next assignment ordained for your life
  • Stay in the thicket of a bad decision (…and hopefully you learn from it)
  • Forfeit the next assignment ordained for your life

Unbelief – The Major enemy to Destiny! Heb3:19

    • Unbelief is: The lack of faith and trust in God that challenges his truthfulness and finds expression in disobedience and rebellion.
    • Also, noted as in-your-face-rejection
  • Manser, M. H. (1999). Zondervan Dictionary of Bible Themes. The Accessible and Comprehensive Tool for Topical Studies. Grand Rapids, MI: ZondervanPublishingHouse.

  • 12 Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; 13 but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, 15 while it is said:

l“Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”

(Heb 3:12-15)
