We have reached the end of our journey with Mark Batterson's Chase The Lion, and he truly goes out with a bang. In this devotion he reminds us that our life has a purpose and that our destiny precedes us.
The most important thing to realize here is whether you believe it or not your life has a purpose. The desires you have, the things you do they all mean something. God will always work out your decisions for the good of His Glory. It's so easy to get caught up in the bewilderment of not "being where I want to be" but it doesn't matter where you want to be, it matters where God wants you to be. That's not to say you won't get to where you're trying to go, but we have to get there on Gods path and his timing.
We must realize that we may never know the extent of our destiny, because even as it predates us, it also outlasts us. What we do today affects our tomorrow, not only for us but those around us. What kind of legacy are you trying to leave? As long as we continuously align ourselves with Gods will, we can never go wrong.

“Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose.” Phil 2:1 -2
