Recently, I was in a major city, so I decided to do some shopping. As I entered one of the stores, I noticed some of the items had tags on them. I moved closer to check what’s on them; it was the price tags. The merchants were detailed enough to communicate the value of each item via the price tags. I left the store thinking; there is a price tag on my life.

Friend, there is a price tag placed on your life and destiny. This price tag is first determined and revealed by what it cost God to redeem you from sin; it cost the blood of Jesus (John 3:16). The price tag is also determined by the effort the devil applies to take you out of the journey of destiny (Judges 16:1-5).

The battle you face is a reflection of the mantle you carry. The bigger the mantle, the bigger the battle (2 Corinthians 11:24-28). The people who have the greatest problems often have the greatest destiny. The devil is too afraid of them to allow them to live out their destiny. Mary Magdaleen carried an evangelistic calling but was perfectly demonised before she met Christ (Mark 16:9-11, Luke 8:1-3).

The promiscuity of the woman of Samaria was because of her great destiny (John 4:15-30). For some people, the devil takes them more seriously than they take themselves. While you cheapen God’s call on your life, the devil does not. He strategises when you are still loafing about. He is busy scheming and devising to truncate your destiny (Job 5:12, 2 Corinthians 2:11). People live casually when they lack awareness of destiny.

The kind of pastor, ministry, or teaching you are exposed to is also a reflection of the kind of destiny you carry (1 Timothy 4:12). If you want to know how greatly God thinks about you; check the messages and messangers that He sends your way. Saul thought he was just looking for a lost donkey. He never knew that a great destiny awaited him until he met Samuel (1 Samuel 9:15-21). Don’t joke with your Samuel.

You are not cheap. You have got a huge price on your life (1 Corinthians 6:20). You are expensive to the economy of Heaven. You cannot afford to live anyhow. Marrying wrong would not only affect you but would also affect generations. It would significantly affect the program of God (Luke 1:26-35). Marriage for you is beyond just finding a guy or lady around to marry. It is about destiny.
