Destiny is the divine purpose that God has for your life. Jeremiah 1:5 tells us that before He formed Him in the womb, He gave him an assignment to fulfil on the earth. In this post, I won’t be talking about the Satanic agents assigned to hinder your progress, as I believe it is a discussion we have way too much. Instead, I will be discussing how we can be our own destiny killers.
As far as I am concerned, the religious institutions have hoodwinked us into believing that we are not responsible for arriving at our place of purpose. The notion of personal accountability has been eradicated from the pulpit. Instead, when someone is financially irresponsible, their inability to become economically fruitful is blamed on demonic forces. Congregations will spend all night crying out to God for deliverance from financial strongholds when that time could have been invested in educating themselves on financial literacy.

“I am waiting on God” is a popular slogan for those who don’t have the drive to work for what they want. Instead, some church members are taught that the Lord will open the door at the right time. Meanwhile decades have passed by and nothing has been achieved because before God can open the door, you’ve got to do some work.
When God told Jeremiah that He had appointed him as a prophet to the nations (Jeremiah 1:5), his response was, “Alas, Sovereign Lord, I don’t know how to speak I am too young” (Jeremiah 1:7). What he was saying was that he did not have the ability to take on such an important role. He was insecure about his position in life. What Jeremiah said is a form of self-sabotage.
Many of us are guilty of sabotaging our destiny’s through inaction. If you truly believe that God has called you to something, you are going to do everything in your power to prepare yourself for the work you have been given to do. Preparation meets opportunity, if you are not ready when the door opens, you have no right to blame the devil for your failure.
May God bless the hearers and the doers of His word.
