She has been thinking of starting the venture for a while. A lot of thinking, praying, calculations and all that. But they all ended up without action. The moment she decided to step out, everything began to align. In her words, “I never knew that God has something big as this for me.” She is working the talk and fulfilling destiny.

Friend, destiny fulfilment is not just for talkers; it is for workers. While it is good to think and talk about what God has said to you or shown you, it is important that you work the talk. Thank God for positive confessions but without positive actions there would not be positive results. Talk plus work equals success.

God has already given us the formulae for success in His word when He said that, “This book of the Lord shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so you may observe to do according to all that is written in it, then you would make your way prosperous and you will have good success” (Joshua 1:8). Here we have information, mediation, confession and action as keys for success.

Of all the recipes for success spelt out in Joshua 1:8, the one that people do not pay much attention to is the doing, the action. People engage in a lot of information gathering, thinking or meditation, lots of confessions and the likes but little or no action. Did you notice that the responsibility to make your way prosperous is yours and not God’s? God has ordained you to prosper but you would have to make your way prosperous! This is where your action comes in.

Enough of singing, “standing on the promises of God…” while all you are doing is sitting in the premises. Listen, you will never know what God can do until you go all out doing what He has said. Miracles are not for loafers. Destiny fulfilment is not for those who sit in the valley of decisions (Joel 3:14). It is for those who take actions like Abraham, even when they do not know where they are headed (Hebrews 11:8).

As you go into this week, make up your mind to take steps along your destiny. What is that thing you have been thinking and planning to do? What is that thing you have been afraid of doing but you know it’s God’s will for you? What is keeping you from stepping into the waters of your destiny? Like Esther, you need to rise up, with the promise of God, and take your destiny in your own hands (Esther 4:14-16). You will succeed!
