In the Daytona 500, only one person is behind the wheel, but the race is not won by only one person. Dozens of other people change the tires, fill the gas tank and keep the car maintained. That is why auto racing is considered a team sport—you’re not in it alone.
In a similar way, destiny fulfillment is not a solo journey; every one of us needs a support team, which is where our family and friends come in:
Let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. — Hebrews 10:24–25
Destiny discovery and development cannot take place in a vacuum. You will never fully know yourself or your destiny apart from community.
Remember Your Vitamins
In the Kingdom of Heaven, God made us to need different “nutrients” to stay healthy, and He ordained that these various nutrients would come to us from different sources. Prayer and God’s presence are able to deliver certain spiritual vitamins, while the Word of God delivers others. Some necessary elements can come only through fellowship with other believers. When we cut ourselves off from true connection with others, we deprive ourselves of a set of nutrients that cannot be found in any other spiritual resource.
You need other people to provoke you into becoming the person you intend to be. Fellowship with others helps keep you accountable and encourages you to stay the course.
Each of us needs the support of others, which is why it is important to be part of a church and build lasting relationships with a healthy spiritual family. You grow best when others know your faults and strengths and when you invite your loved ones to challenge you toward maturity. It is life changing when you have people to celebrate your victories with you.
As you experience true fellowship, or what the Bible calls koinonia (life in common with others), you are able to access God’s resources in abundance and are empowered to fulfill your destiny in Christ. Interdependency is a vital key to your destiny.
Who’s Your Tour Guide?
Finally, remember that along the way, you will need journey guides—people who can help you map out your itinerary. We call these people mentors.
Some mentors are pastors, who will feed you God’s Word and help you develop spiritually. Others have expertise in your unique field and will help train you in your specific purpose.
Interdependency will open doors for you. It will cause you to thrive and strengthen you to bring transformation to your world.
