Your destiny will always involve a test. That test will always be aimed at whether you want to be a blessing or whether you merely want to be blessed.
Because once you reach that test, God uses it to examine your heart.
Are you here for Him?
Are you here for how He can use you for others?
Or is this only about you?
If it’s only about you, that’s selfishness and self-preservation. That’s removing yourself from God’s Covenantal￼ covering of favor as you seek to grab as many treasures as you can stuff in your pockets.
Your value in the kingdom of God is found not in how much good you can get from God, but to what extent you let Him use you for the kingdom.
One of the reasons why God often doesn’t do much with His people is that they aren’t willing to be used by Him.
“But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth.”
Exodus 9:16 NKJV
