‘There are two greatest days in a man’s life, the day he was born and the day he discovers why. ‘ – Anonymous
I heard a story of a man who was 73years when asked by a reporter how old he was, to which the man replied, “I’m three years old’ the reporter protested ‘ that can’t be true’ the elderly man replied Chronologically, I am 73years old, but it was 3years ago I discovered the reason I was born. That is the reason I said, ‘I am 3-year-old. I have wasted 70years!’
od puts you here for a reason. You are destined for a destiny. You are assigned to an assignment. God has a purpose in mind while creating you. You are not a purposeless entity! There is a REASON for you. There is a reason you look the way you look. There is a reason you talk the way you talk. There is a reason you act the way you act.
You are customized and wired with peculiarity to fit in into God’s given destiny. You are not a mishap. You are not an accidental occurrence! God planned your life in advance. He selected your colour, your race, your background, your experiences to align you with your destiny. You are programmed for a purpose!

·You are designed for a destiny.
What is destiny?
Destiny can be defined as God’s intended meaning for a specific life. The purpose for a product is the product’s destiny. Put specifically, your destiny is your life assignment. It’s the reason you were born. It’s what you were born to do. Put generally, it’s the lives you were born to touch. The books you were born to write. The songs you were born to sing. The products you were born to invent. The discoveries you were born to make. The problems you were born to solve. The sayings you were born to make. The paradigms you were born to shift.
That is why, you are uniquely unique. You are differently different. In the word of the Old Testament Author, King David “You are fearfully and wonderfully made.” You have no duplicate. You are similarly different from everybody alive. Your kind has never been. They will never be. When God finished creating you He threw the mold away. That is why nobody has your exact finger prints.
God gives you talents, potentials, gifts, passions as tools to accomplish your destiny on earth.
