Of Fate and Destiny

by Josey Miller on Tuesday, March 9, 2010 at 9:24am ·

First thing that comes to my mind when I started to learn things about life is, " Do we really have control of our life? Do we really have our own choice or is life a flow where you just want to follow using all your potentials to fulfill your destiny? The Bible says,"Everything that happens in the world is made to work out according to God’s purpose. Evil exists, but it is not allowed to thwart God’s providence. God uses even sinful men for His purposes. “The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD;He directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases” (Proverbs 21:1). God worked in the hearts of the Egyptians (Exodus 12:36) and King Artaxerxes (Ezra 7:27) to bring about His purpose. Even when Man’s intent is purely evil, God can still bring about His will, as in the case of those who crucified Jesus (Acts 2:23; 4:27-28).

Therefore, it's God's will for the Egyptian Pharoah to stop the Israelite from leaving and through God's power that He brought plagues to Egypt so that Israelite would believe that there is God who created them and to whom they shall avow obedience.It is also God's will for Peter to be blinded and to spread God's love and salvation. However, is it also God's will for a person to be in totally living a very distressful life so that he soon discover that there is God whom He should trust to direct his life? Is it also fate while on the process of choosing your destiny suddenly died of an accident?

The Bible teaches that Man was created with the ability to make moral choices and that he is responsible for those choices. Did Adam and Eve predestined to disobey God?. On the contrary, Adam and his wife had the ability to choose obedience or disobedience . They knew what the result of their decision would be, and they were held accountable .The same thing when we make decision to the choices presented to us.

There are many of us who are wandering around aimlessly through life, wondering where we are meant to go, and we look at other people's success and wishing they were ours. No matter with our own exhaustive effort aiming of following our dream destiny, plans are still thwarted due to unavoidable occurrences? We may have choices, however choices presented are limited and no way to reach your aim destiny.
Example -you dream to be a doctor however, your parents cannot afford to send you to school. You work hard , but still not enough to support your ambition.

On the Psychic point of view,our own fate may be said to be determined by the time, date and place of your birth. We may say that in some ways it outlines the things to come which are out of control. However, Other aspects of fate are not out of our control. They deal with our inner mind, our conscious ideas and beliefs, our moral standards and other aspects you can recognize as the like. example: when we chose a partner we know what would be the effect in our future- we chose to go with a lazy, drug addict person or to cohabitate with a married person.

Destiny is something we choose to go after.... Fate is something that happens to us, and seemingly takes away our choices, but in fact actually leads us back towards the choice of Destiny we already made before we were born. Does this ends to saying, each one of us has our own destiny?
