My Destiny

”Everything has already been decided. It was known long ago what each person would be. So there’s no use arguing with God about your destiny.“ Ecclesiastes‬ ‭6‬:‭10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

You’ve heard this debate before, right? If God already knows how it all turns out, why try? But have you really thought about what the text means? Not everything can be taken at face value, so I chose to delve deeper.

As humans we define our existence through linear time, “time that is perceived by the human senses as a referential point that has a beginning and an end.” (

Where you end up is based on your actions and choices. The outcome, or your “destiny,” is not one that’s been decided for you. The reason God can already see the result of your decisions is because He is not confined by time. His existence isn’t linear. He has the ability to see the end while we’re still operating in a present that hasn’t concluded, yet. Mind blowing, isn’t it? Another way of looking at it: “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” – French philosopher, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
