How To Find God’s Clues To Your Destiny

Looking through window blinds, sun light coming inside. Conceptual

We are all born with an amazing potential to fulfill the highest destiny and purpose in God, yet we settle for what we think we can do. What is your destiny in God? Let’s find some clues to your destiny and look at some tactics the enemy uses to keep those clues hidden.

What Is Your Amazing Potential?

God’s love and power are limitless and what we can accomplish with His Holy Spirit working through us is also limitless. But the enemy comes in with what I call spiritual identity theft. This occurs when you do not think you have any potential or a clear destiny.

When Fear Held My Destiny Back

In my case, I had a recurring nightmare from an early age that I was being chased by something evil. I would be frozen in place and could not move in the dream. For years I would wake up running and screaming loudly through my house. This was alarming to my family and later my roommates. They thought I had psychological problems, but what they did not realize was that I had a destiny in God that Satan did not want me to fulfill.

After I began pursuing my destiny, the nightmares went away. God had given me this dreaming gift early on in my life, and He intended for it to be used for good. But, Satan caused it to be mixed with fear to try and stop me from seeing it.

Where have you been attacked? It is a major clue to your destiny. Here are some of my favorite destiny-tracking tools:

  • Look at the area of attack. I have found after working with thousands of people through life coaching and my seminars that the areas of your life where you experience the most attack or resistance may very well be an indicator of some of your gifts and callings. Why would Satan waste time attacking you if you did not have a great destiny to fulfill?
  • Night dreams. I help people who are stuck and not able to move forward in their lives. I also have discovered that there are many dreams you have at night which point toward your life dreams. I have developed a free ebook Night Dreams that Reveal Your Life Dreams on that very topic.

Spiritual Identity Theft Derails Your Destiny

Next I want to talk about 2 destiny-stealing, spiritual identity theft tactics designed to keep you from fulfilling your highest potential and destiny in God:

1.    You Have to Be Perfect to Experience Your Destiny. 

There is a viewpoint held by some Christians that if you can avoid sin at all costs and become holy, then you will have a close relationship with God and can start walking out your destiny.

Although there is some truth to that, the downside is—you can become so focused on avoiding sin that it becomes all you think about. If you are spending a lot of effort on being holy, then you can feel guilty and condemned in areas of your life that have not been worked out yet.

2.    Your Identity Is Based on Rules Not in Relationship.

Condemnation is a strategy of Satan to steal away our most basic and profound identity: the identity that you are a son or daughter of God. You can have a close relationship with God that is not based on rules but on the Father’s great love and the Son’s great sacrifice for you.

Get right with God and trust that the Holy Spirit will convict you of sin. Notice when Satan tries to condemn you, causing you to feel separated from God when you sin.

better approach to holiness and relationship is getting a closer with God by placing your focus on His goodness and love for you. Yes, repent when you fall short. But if you put your energy toward doing good and loving others instead of avoiding sin you will find yourself sinning less.

    I’m drawn to work in multiple areas of healing, reading tarot, mediumship, priesthood and excorsims. I know its a strong mixture of sorts. I was given jeremiah to read, which I did and then genesis followed twice. I get woke up early mornings, but I’m a little frightened to meet who it is. Just need guidence.

    Thanks so much for posting!
    So True!
    The biggest area of attack has been with my four children being taken away by Dcf after calling 911 for a domestic violence situation against me.
    I have always had a deep yearning to adopt children and be a foster parent.
    Also, when I needed a Christian domestic violence shelter, I couldn’t find one, only state run.
    And, I feel I would love to open a Christian domestic violence shelter offering Love, Healing and Hope

    To Deborah,

    I’m 63 and I haven’t used my greatest gift yet. Sometimes God makes you wait until you are mentally and spiritually mature enough to handle it. Look at Moses, he was 80 before he led the Israelites out of Egypt. Age means nothing to God.

    Every time I have tried to walk out in my calling I was slammed dunked. The enemy would attack me viciously in all manners. I was convinced and absolutely refused to use my gift except with my own family because I was tired of the warfare. Now God is calling me out and I have a opportunity to use this gift but now Im 30 years older then when God first called me and Im feeling like how in the world can I be used in an area that 20 and 30 year olds are the norm? Im 53.

    Doug, should I be asking God to send me a healthy man, one who plays music or and is willing to work in Ministry with me.
    My Husband passed in February.
    Even though I continue alone. I really would rather have a mate who could watch over me. And be two in agreement.

    Wow, Doug, this is fantastic news…I have been struggling with some areas of my life trying to determine if they were sins. Your words really help me stop focusing on those “maybe” sins and put my focus on my Lord Jesus Christ. I also have been struggling with agoraphobia, the fear of leaving the security of my home, but have recently started pushing through this fear and actually living again. I’m finding by pushing through this fear I have strength and actually enjoy getting out again! Thank you for your encouraging words and visions from Holy Spirit!

    I have had many dreams about houses–small and plain or big, old, ornate houses. One had a huge ballroom in it and one had a massive dark basement. They are always in the same neighborhood with giant, old growth trees, bordering on Dinkytown (the U of MN) on one side, downtown Minneapolis on the other side. The sky is always clouded over – which I know means spiritual darkness. As I travel through this neighborhood, I’m constantly aware of being watched by something sinister but though I’m cautious, I’m not afraid.

    I get the spiritual darkness part, but the specific meaning of the entire dream is a mystery to me. I have read books on dreams and I still don’t get it.

      Denise, I wish I had enough time to interpret all of the dreams I get. I’m buried in them 🙂 But I poured everything I know about them in my Understanding Your Dreams crash course. It’s free and should help you!

    Thank you Doug for this insightful word in regard to our destiny. As I was reading several ongoing blocks in my life became clear to me and this discovery is helping me to understand the greater dynamic of the enemy in and around my life. My greatest attack has and is in my finances. I used to think it was because I came from a family that constantly spoke of ” not enough”. We don’t have enough… There isn’t enough… We just don’t have enough… These statements have been spoken over me for over 50 years! And even though I have tried and tried and tried to have enough I have only succeeded with “just enough” to get by. Just getting by is not the quality of life that my God has for me or what He wants for me as His daughter and servant. I can see more clearly now, with your help, that these lies and chains must be broken! Please pray for me Doug that I receive the final key from the Hoy Spirit to break this curse for me and my family in the name of Jesus! Thank you Doug and God bless you <3

      When my children were little God told me specifically to knock off saying the words we cant afford it, we don’t have the money etc. etc. He told me to use words like, we will pray about it and see if that’s what God wants us to do with our finances. It totally changed our outlook on money. Instead of feeling like we always had lack our perspective changed. Then bit by bit the finances began to grow. Whatever you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth becomes so. Let your ears hear your mouth speak the truth. There is absolutely no lack in His Kingdom. I am a single mom of 3 grown children, they all have been blessed financially because they grew up believing God was a wonderful provider. They are givers, and as soon as the money pours in they pour out. I love to watch it. I wish I had grown up they same way but I can tell you that God has redeemed all lost time and has blessed me far above what I deserve. Look for His blessings everywhere, whatever they may be. It builds your faith for finances. If He give you a gorgeous blue sky thank Him for it, there are things to praise God for all day long. Hope this helps.
