Claiming Your Destiny

“Unclaimed Promises”

OPEN: Welcome to Restoration Fellowship Church! I’m glad you’re here today!

Story: Each year, about $800 million worth of lottery prizes are not collected, according to gaming officials.

Two Scriptures: Ephesians 3:20 & Hebrews 11:1

Two Questions:

1) Are you satisfied with your life?


Do you believe that God could

have so much more for you



Now all glory to God, who is able,

through his mighty power at work within

us, to accomplish infinitely more than we

might ask or think. Eph 3:20 NLT

Faith is the confidence that what we

hope for will actually happen; it gives us

assurance about things we cannot see.

Heb. 11:1 NLT


“destine” - : “to decree beforehand”

(The Bible is called “the Law”)

destiny – : “something to

which a person or thing is destined”

“decree” – “an order usually having the

force of law

So how can I claim my destiny? # 1 – Be Future Focused

i. don’t allow remorse or resentment to chain you to your past

i. Many aspiring writers wish to know the key to becoming a great author. It’s simple: start writing something every day. The secret to your success is determined by your daily agenda. Dreams appear impossibly unachievable when viewed in their entirety. However, you don’t have to make them happen overnight;

a. wecannotundothepast,butwe

can shape the future

b. yourfutureisshapedonedayata


you only need to make the

most of the present day.

ii. One person said

iii. The greatest ideas might be within you

iv. The greatest invention might be within you

v. The greatest company might be within you

vi. The greatest cure might be within you

vii. But what will you do today that will change your future and claim your destiny?

c. Fast-Forward Your Life

i. In other words, ask yourself now what your regrets will be 10 years, 20 years or 50 years from now and do your best to live a life of “no regrets”

“the journey

of a thousand miles begins

with just one step”

ii. Dr. Anthony Campolo tells about a sociological study in which fifty people over the age of ninety-five were asked one question: “If you could live your life over again, what would you do differently?” It was an open-ended question, and a multiplicity of responses came from these elderly senior citizens. However, one answer consistently surfaced: “If I had it to do over again, I would risk more.” Don’t let fear of failure prevent you from trying new things.

iii. The saddest summary of a life

contains three regrets: I could

have, I might have, and I

should have.

# 2 – Be Faith Filled

If we are going to claim our destiny, then it means we will have to do these three things:

a. Believethatyouarebeingguided

by God

things is not you, but Christ IN
