THEME: DESTINY CONNECTORS
“The Spirit told Philip, “Go to that chariot and stay near it.Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. “Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked. “How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?” So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him…Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus”
-Destiny connectors can also have a special anointing that benefits the body of Christ.
Destiny connectors can be carriers of great mantles that they can release. Philip met the Ethiopian Eunuch who was the treasurer of the queen of Ethiopia, reading from the prophet Isaiah. Philip revealed the work of Jesus on the cross. Eventually the Eunuch was baptized received salvation. If the Ethiopian eunuch had not met Philip, he may not have been saved.
Destiny connectors can basically be defined as people who divinely connect you to your destiny. They are mandated to help you achieve what God has predestined for us. We know that God predestined us to adoption as sons according to the good pleasure of His will (Ephesians 1:5). There are destiny connectors and destiny destroyers. Destiny destroyers are individuals who do not do not build but kill your God given purpose. Destiny connectors are firstly, people who are assigned to help you reach Your God given mandates. Some are of lower ranks and social status. Naaman, was a skilled and great commander in the Syrian army but he had leprocy. It took the intervention his house girl, a young Hebrew slave to inform his wife of prophet Elisha (2 Kings 5:1-3). The young girl, although she was low in social and economic status, was able to connect Naaman to his miracle. The second class are people who have the right ladder you need to climb into greatness, also called destiny introducers. They have networks and connections required to move you to the next level. The cupbearer remembered Joseph after two years of accurately interpreting his dream. He was in the dungeon and after he revealed Pharaoh’s dream, he became prime minister in Egypt (Genesis 41:8-14). The third category comprises of people who have great gifts and talents but remain unknown. When the Spirit of the Lord departed from king Saul, and a depressing spirit bothered him, he needed a skilled harpist to calm down his soul (1 Samuel 16:17-19). David a skilled player of the harp was brought to comfort the king. Probably his skills would have remained unnoticed or his destiny altered. The Bible reminds us that your skill will make room for you before kings. The fourth group are burden bearers. The word “borne” means “to lift up and bear away. Ruth clung to Naomi even when she did not fully comprehend her journey to Bethlehem (Ruth 1:16-17). Jesus has promised that He will lift our burdens and give us His peace that surpasses all understanding. The fifth category are men and women with spiritual anointing. God does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7). Prophet Elijah gave his mantle to Elisha and released a double portion. The Ethiopian Eunuch did not return home empty had received the gift of salvation. Destiny connectors are people who have been assigned by God to offer assistance in a certain area that you may receive open doors, breakthrough’s, and new opportunities that will transform your life.
You are Holy Lord the fountain of all holiness, we bless Your holy name. You are Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Shalom, our Creator and our Father. We humbly beseech You dear Jesus to forgive us all our trespasses and heal our hearts, soul and bodies. We seek Your presence in our homes, work places, nation and everywhere that we go. We seek Your favor in all our going out and coming in. We seek Your favor before You and before men and women. We seek Your divine connection pertaining to our destiny connectors that we may receive the required help for the glory of Your name. We seek You divine graces to help us transcend from one glory to the next. You are able dear Jesus and nothing is too hard for You. May You fight all our battles for us, for the battle belongs to You Lord. We are more than conquerors in You dear Jesus. No weapon fashioned against us shall prosper and no tongue raised against us in judgement shall prevail in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. May You protect us and preserve us with Your precious blood. May You make us fruitful in every area of our lives and increase our productivity for Your names sake. May You bless us and keep us Lord. May You make Your face to shine upon us and be gracious unto us. May You turn Your countenance upon us and grant us peace. Jesus we believe and trust in You. Amen
