What has God called you to do? Are you stepping into your destiny?

On a recent episode of "The Linda Fields Show" on the Charisma Podcast Network, life coach and business professional Linda Fields challenges listeners to do just that.

The key, she says, is to recognize the opportunities that come your way, opportunities that are often cleverly disguised as problems. "They look like criticism; they look like things that aren't working; they look like resistance," she says. "And can I just say you're going to have resistance? And don't be surprised by it."

Sometimes resistance takes the form of an opportunity to take offense, she says, when we personalize the problems we face. "We begin to say, 'Oh, they don't like me; they don't want me; there's not room for me; they don't see me,' Fields says. "And those are the kinds of offenses that will literally stop you in your tracks ... and keep you from advancing in your destiny.

"Now God is a good leader, and God says, 'In the world, you're going to have some trouble,'" she adds. One key to not taking offense, she says, is to follow Jesus by agreeing with what the Father says about us. "Well, what does the Father say about you?" He says you're seated in heavenly places with Him," she says. "Can you think of one thing you need that you couldn't find, seated right with God in the heavenlies?"
