Mastering our predestination


Proverbs 20:24. . .”Man’s steps are ordained by the Lord, how then can a man understand his own way.”
Doesn’t sound like man totally masters his own destiny does it? God directs a man’s steps whether you know Him through Christ or not. Of course the common response is since God directs man’s steps then He’ll make sure everyone gets to heaven. Wrong!!! The other response is God will only save who He chooses and predestine the rest to be separated from Him (Calvinism), which isn’t biblical either since hell was created for Satan and his angels.

Our eternal destiny is based upon your heart’s attitude toward God. If you insist upon living in sin, which is basically trying to get your own way instead of trusting God to guide you, then your heart will harden and He will eventually give you over to the world. Of course God loves you and doesn’t want this to happen so He sent His only begotten Son to die for your sins.

God may direct the course of your life but He only saves those He has mercy on, those who put their faith and trust in Him through the blood of the Lord Jesus. I know one question a lot of christians ask is how nonchristians make it through their trials-the answer is by the grace of God.

The only difference is they aren’t aware of it and take full credit for getting themselves through their problems without seeking God. Which means the grace of God is at work to some extent in the lives of every person on the face of the earth. So the earth isn’t totally depraved at least. That would be a lack of the grace of God-which would be in a word-hell.
