As we continue to look at the account of Lot and how he had to make a destiny-defining decision, we get to understand that at all times and especially at critical moments in our lives, God himself has not abandoned the destiny defining decisions to us. He helps us. In this dispensation, we have the Holy Spirit who is our Helper. We have the Word of God. We have the Father Himself. We have ministering angels and we have children of God divinely placed to provide us with the assistance that we need. Whether or not we identify these help mediums, does not take away from the truth that help has been readily made available.
When it comes to people as destiny helpers, pray and ask the Father to help you first, develop love for people. Then also pray that your eyes will be open to recognizing whom God has divinely placed in your path to provide you with assistance. What you do with the help provided is your decision. The angels provided help to Lot in many ways. They were bent on seeing him and his family saved the proper way but Lot decided otherwise.
The role of destiny helpers in your life will vary depending on your situation. Let’s examine a few from scripture:
There are people the Lord will bring into your life who cannot help you but they know someone who can help you. They are called divine connectors - they will connect you to the help you need. 2 Kings 5 - Naaman and the little girl.
There are others whom at critical moments in your life, provide counsel/advice that will forever change your destiny for good. Exodus 18 - Jethro and Moses
Another category of destiny helpers are influential people who will talk well about you in high places and as a result, unusual doors of opportunities will open up for you. Genesis 40 - Joseph and the Baker.
Also there are some faithful people the Lord may bring into your lives that will serve many purposes. People who will share your burden with you on your way to destiny. People who will hold the ladder for you as you continually climb up to a place of victory, encouraging you all the way through. And people who simply believe in your vision and will do all it takes to stay with you until your vision becomes a reality.
So, whatever the case might be for you, our goal is for you to see that even as you make destiny defining decisions, help is available. True enough the Father determines purpose and we determine our destiny. However, we are never without help and direction if we choose to yield to it.
