BIBLE PASSAGE: 1 Kings 11:1-11


Destiny is God’s ordained purpose for your creation into this world, it is a divinely pre-planned destination for your life. Destiny is the snapshot of God’s counsel for a person and what God has decided concerning a person even before conception Jeremiah 1:5. God has a prepared destination for us and we must surrender totally to Him so as to avoid destiny destroyers that may want to scuttle God’s plan for our lives Jeremiah 29:11. As good as God’s desired end for your life could be, arriving at that destination still depends on your attitude and agreement with God.





1.IGNORANCE OF DIVINE WILL: Lack of knowledge of what your purpose in life is could be a huge destiny destroyer Hosea 4:6; Proverbs 29:18. If we are aware of our destiny, we shall be free, focused and fulfilled. Being unaware of destiny however could lead to great frustration in life John 8:32; Isaiah 6:1-9; Hebrews 11:13.
2.PURSUIT OF VANITY: The focus on the pursuit of vanity by king solomon made him turn back from following God and eventually destroyed his destiny in life Ecclesiastes 2:10-11, 1 Kings 11:1-10.
3.LOSING FAITH IN GOD: Lack of faith in God as you journey through life is also a destiny destroyer Hebrews 4:2; 1 Timothy 1:19.
4.PRIDE: Pride is excessive self- esteem; it is a sinful attribute that leads to destruction and eventually cuts you off your divine destiny James 4:6; Daniel 4:28-33; Proverbs 29:23.
5.SINFUL LIFE CHOICES: Sins not confessed and forsaken are dangerous because they provoke God to anger. A man who is living in sin cannot fulfil his destiny or attain eternal destination which God has promised 1 John 3:4; Romans 3:23.
6.ANGER: Anger is another destiny destroyer. Uncontrolled emotional outburst has led many people out of God’s purpose for their lives Ecclesiastes 7:9; Proverbs 29:22.
7.LAZINESS: Proverbs 12:24; 22:29.
8.PRAYERLESSNESS: Prayerlessness can cause the enemy to take advantage of a man’s destiny Matthew 13:25; 26:41; Luke 18:21.


There are scriptural examples of people whose uncorrected character flaws destroyed their destinies, these include Solomon 1 Kings 11:1-11, Samson Judges 16:6-18, Judas Iscariot Luke 22:3-5; Matthew 27:3-5, Demas 2 Timothy 4:10, Gehazi 2 King 5:20-27, Reuben Genesis 49:3-4, Achan Joshua 7:24-25.


Run away from destiny destroyers and make up your mind to live a life that will enhance the fulfilment of your destiny.
