I didn’t choose IT…  IT chose me.  Is this destiny…or fate?  There’s very little difference between destiny and fate, in fact, I’m probably not smart enough to detect the difference.  But my feeble attempt would be that God controls one and the “big-bang-theory” controls the other.  Which is which?  Either way, the point is this: For some people, they are destined for greatness (loose term), rather they like it or not.  Some people “fight” certain issues all their lives, trying to do the opposite of what is being forced or imposed
on them.  An example might be the story behind “Harry Met Sally.”  They fought throughout their lives, never realizing that they were meant for each other, and ultimately they married.  Another example would be Joel Osteen; who never wanted to be CEO/Pastor of Houston’s Lakewood Church.  He was a “behind-the-scenes” director of sorts; but because of his Father’s sudden death, Joel Osteen was thrown into the pastoring of the soon-to-be MEGA Church.  Under his leadership, Lakewood has become, probably, the largest individual church in America, claiming to have some 30,000 members….all from the foresight of a person who didn’t want the job.  He didn’t choose the job…the job chose him.  That’s my point.  Further, many of us are destined for greatness, and while not realizing it, once exposed to the opportunity…seize it, and excel in it.  Much is the case when we “fight God.”  He tugs on us,
maybe for many years, but we resist His Love, but because of His Grace…He chooses us.  Romans 8:29 -30 – For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the first  born

among many brethren; and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.  John 15:16 “You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you. …Blessings…cjlb…2/22/14
