God has a great plan and purpose for your life. 

I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11).


Worship is our greatest privilege, and the fact that God seeks worshipers must put it high on the priority list of every believer. It not unreasonable to suggest, that the fullness of our destiny might be graciously withheld from us, until we learn to worship. Attempting to carry out God’s plan without worship is possibly the greatest contributing factor for failure in life. Indeed, it is probably one of the main contributing factors in the lives of those who fall from ministry due to a misalignment of priorities. Working for God is what you are called to do, not what you are created to do. We will never know how many failures and unfulfilled dreams can be traced back to a lack of worship, but we do know that when we worship Him, we are set to discover the plans and purposes He has for us, and how to fulfil them.

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night (Psalm 1:1-2).


The psalmist delighted (strongly desired and longed) for God’s Word. It gave him a sense of pleasure, purpose, and direction. We cannot delight in something without having a sense of praise for it. Delighting in something or someone is the forerunner to praise. It is because he meditated on God’s Word that the psalmist took the right paths in life. Walking the right way in life is not a choice of paths; it’s a choice of books. When you meditate on God’s Word, He’ll meditate on you. When you delight in Him, He’ll delight in you. The time you spend with God is directly related to the time He will spend with you. When you delight in God’s Word, you will always get to the right place at the right time and do the right things with the right people. Nothing secures your destiny in God more than delighting in God’s Word with thanksgiving, praise and worship on your lips.

The generation in the wilderness complained instead of being thankful and forfeited the plans God had for them in the Promised Land. Your promised land (destiny) responds to your current attitude of worship to God in the land (circumstances) you are now in.
