A few years ago, a movie came out about a boy in Vietnam who’s father had been an American GI (The Beautiful Country). His life was miserable because no one in Vietnam accepted him. He was a half-breed. His mother wanted him to try to escape to America to find his father. But how, the boy thought, how could I ever find him?

Then his mother showed him a copy of their marriage certificate. This was the proof he needed. He went through a terrible ordeal trying to make it to America, and all along the way he would pull out that wrinkled marriage certificate to inspire him to keep going.

You and I have a similar certificate. It is called the Holy Bible. If you question whether or not you are predestined, I simply urge you to take out your Scriptures. Read the promises therein. Do you believe them? Do you believe that Jesus is God’s Son and that He died for your sins? If so, then you are part of that divine destiny. May God bless you in that awesome destiny.
