Wouldn’t it be great if there was a science to destiny? You could know a formula to hit your target. What’s interesting about that whole question is that there was research done for 30 years in Fuller Theological Seminary by a guy named Bobby Clinton. His research was specifically on destiny and fulfillment, which is an incredibly relevant subject because so many people are interested in the prophetic. Not just because they want to know about what’s going on in the world around them, they want to know where they fit in the picture. Where do I fit? Am I fulfilling the purpose for which I was created? Am I on schedule? And Clinton’s research came up with a term which I think is kind of fascinating. He referred to it as convergence. The fantastic thing is that the language in this is hidden in the Bible!
It’s almost in a coded form. It’s referred to as the work. Many of us can be involved with working out salvation, working in the ministry, and working in business. And all of that can be part of God’s plan. But there’s a moment when you literally step from working into the work, the assignment that God has given you.
