In Him 11 also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, 12 to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be to the praise of His glory.
When I think of the word destiny, I think of two things. One is a good friend I had in high school named Destiny. She was dependable, brutally honest, and could easily make me laugh. The other is the classic 80’s movie “Back to the Future”. If you remember, George McFly, reading off some notes that Marty had written for him, goes up to his dream girl Loraine in the diner and proclaims, “I’m your DENSITY…I mean, your destiny.” It is a line that Melissa and I have said to each other repeatedly over the years. The irony in the movie is that George doesn’t really understand the full truth of what he is saying. On the other hand, Marty knows that these two are his parents, truly destined to fall in love during the Under the Sea dance.
