God created every human being with the potential and abilities to fulfil divine purpose.
According to John 1:12, a very important part of Gods plan for every human being is to attain full sonship. Now, sonship starts from being born again then growing in the Spirit.
This is where being with Jesus comes in. It is absolutely impossible for anyone to take this journey and exhibit Christ-like behaviour unless the person has been with Jesus. Acts 4:13 says:
“Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.”
Knowing that Peter and John were ordinary fishermen, the people marvelled at their confidence, boldness and wisdom, realizing it could only be the result of a divine encounter.
A divine encounter is the special visitation of the Holy Spirit. Without an encounter with the power of the Spirit, you would live far below your potential. To fulfil your destiny, you must partner with the Holy Spirit by seeking a divine encounter with Him.
Peter realised his potential. Although initially full of fear, after Pentecost he became so bold that not even the council’s threats could stop him. He had originally lacked the fire, zeal, and direction because after Christ’s death, he stopped fishing for souls and returned to being an ordinary fisherman (John 21:1-3 ).
However, after Pentecost, he was able to perform according to Heaven’s expectations. Like Peter, you need to encounter Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit, and everything you require to fulfil destiny will be provided in the mighty name of Jesus.
Make a habit of spending time with Jesus daily; it will determine how far you will go.
