What do people want to help me do? Acts 16:10 Paul had a vision, but all of those with Him immediately picked it up and willing to go with it, that happened when destiny is there. People sense it get involved. Churches, business, Ministries, that are born of God attract people, and like a magnet, get them involved with the vision. Department in the church or in businesses that are destined to prosper attract the necessary people to make them succeed. When no one is interested and no one will get involve, it could be (though not always) that this is not a part of your destiny. 10 STEPS TO YOUR DESTINY • What is the deepest desire of your heart? • What stirs your passion? • What flows naturally out of you ? • Where do you bring fourth fruit or produce good results? • What is the witness of the Holy Spirit in your spirit? • What do mature Christian see in you? • What career or Ministry do you feel the peace of God about pursuing? • What thoughts, visions, or dreams are impossible to put out of your mind? • To what can you give 100 percent of yourself for your whole life? • What people want to gather around and help you accomplish?
