Joshua‬ ‭6:26‬ ‭

“Then Joshua charged them at that time, saying, “Cursed be the man before the Lord who rises up and builds this city Jericho; he shall lay its foundation with his firstborn, and with his youngest he shall set up its gates.”

-Destiny re-aligners are people who revoke words that may have been spoken against a person, family or nation, to cause delay or destroy its destiny. After the battle of Jericho, Joshua pronounced a curse on the city. Many years later, at the time of King Asa of Judah and King Ahab of Israel, a man did rebuild the land. 1 Kings 16:34 discloses that, “In his days Hiel of Bethel built Jericho. He laid its foundation with Abiram his firstborn, and with his youngest son Segub he set up its gates, according to the word of the Lord, which He had spoken through Joshua the son of Nun.” The curse caused the area of Jericho, its waters and land to cause miscarriages. The water was tainted, and in-turn caused the ground to be fruitless. The trees would miscarry their fruit because of the water, but even more it caused plants, animals and women to miscarry. Elisha became the destiny re-aligner of the city of Jericho. 2 Kings‬ ‭2:19-22‬ reveals that, “Then the men of the city said to Elisha, “Please notice, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my Lord sees; but the water is bad, and the ground barren.” And he said, “Bring me a new bowl, and put salt in it.” So they brought it to him. Then he went out to the source of the water, and cast in the salt there, and said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘I have healed this water; from it there shall be no more death or barrenness.” So the water remains healed to this day, according to the word of Elisha which he spoke.” The Lord used prophet Elisha to change the destiny of the people of Jericho. Sometimes we may be going through certain challenges in our lives, families or nation. It is the Lord who changes our destiny through His prophets, and we should be ready for a shifting both in the spirit and in the natural.

We pray for a shifting in the mentality of our leadership and the people of this nation. May You proclaim an end to corruption, injustice, idolatry and poor governance in our nation dear Jesus. We pray for a shift in our economical, social, psychological, political and spiritual landscapes of this nation. May You do a new thing in our lives, families and nation.

Genesis‬ ‭18:23-26‬ ‭

“And Abraham came near and said, “Would You also destroy the righteous with the wicked? Suppose there were fifty righteous within the city; would You also destroy the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous that were in it? Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” So the Lord said, “If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.””
-We all know this story of Sodom and Gomorrah. Before it’s destruction, Abraham made an appeal to God, that He may save the righteous among the wicked. Possibly in his mind, he had the idea of God saving his nephew Lot from destruction by fire along with Sodom. Here Abraham demands the righteousness of God, and in his appeal, he implies that if God expects justice from Abraham through faith, surely He Himself must be just. Abraham maintains from God’s own character that God must treat the righteous justly. He asks a fundamental question that, how can God destroy a city that has fifty righteous residents? Abraham contends with God in prayer and realigns the destinies of Lot and his family. Many brethren among us pray for us, and often so without our knowledge. Sometimes everything goes well, and we think it is only by God’s favor. Often times it is through the prayers of our parents, pastors, friends, mentors etc, for the prayers of a righteous man avails much (James 5:16). Some among us came to salvation through the prayers of our own mothers. This is a reason to praise God, for we have the sure of hope of having received the gift of eternal life, having been saved from everlasting fire.

We give thanks to You Lord for You are good and Your mercies endures forever. We praise Your name Lord for You are Righteous and Your righteousness is everlasting. We exult You Abba Father for You are Just and Your justice transcends to all generations. Oh Lord You are worthy. Oh Lord You are able. Mighty Father You are loving and Your love is immeasurable. We come to Your feet dear Jesus with humble adoration asking You to forgive us all our trespasses and wash us with Your precious blood. May we decrease as You increase. May You be glorified in all the earth. We pray for Your gift of salvation among our family members, friends, our nation, and all the nations of the world. May You remember mercy dear Jesus. May Your revive spring forth in this nation, and help us to be partakers of it. May You touch our hearts and respond to our needs according to Your divine will. May You heal all the sick among us and restore the destinies of those who wonder aimlessly in the streets. May You restore our business and our economy dear Jesus. May You restore our marriages and future plans. No witchcraft or evil snare will work against us dear Jesus, for You have redeemed us with Your blood. Your blood speaks better things than that of Abel. May Your justice and peace be felt in our lives, homes, societies, nation and all the nations of the world. Thank You Jesus for loving us. We pray all this trusting in Jesus Mighty name. Amen

Joshua‬ ‭2:1-4‬ ‭

“Now Joshua the son of Nun sent out two men from Acacia Grove to spy secretly, saying, “Go, view the land, especially Jericho.” So they went, and came to the house of a harlot named Rahab, and lodged there. And it was told the king of Jericho, saying, “Behold, men have come here tonight from the children of Israel to search out the country.” So the king of Jericho sent to Rahab, saying, “Bring out the men who have come to you, who have entered your house, for they have come to search out all the country.” Then the woman took the two men and hid them. So she said, “Yes, the men came to me, but I did not know where they were from.”
-Joshua trusted the promises of God to give them the promised land. Jericho was often referred to as the “City of Palms” for its abundance of palm trees (Deuteronomy 34:3; Judges 1:16; 2 Chronicles 28:15). In dramatic contrast to its desert surroundings, Jericho thrived as a fertile, spring-fed oasis. Joshua applied wisdom and sent men secretly to spy on the land of Jericho, given that previously spies had gone out publicly turned out badly for Israel and majority of the spies were discouraged (Numbers 13:28). Rahab having knowledge that God had given the Israelites their land, displayed faith by hiding the men on the roof of her house oblivious of the threat they might have posed on her. She also acted bold by defying the order of the king of Jericho and lied that the men had escaped from the city. She participated in God’s plan of securing the land of Jericho as an inheritance to the Israelites, and thus became a destiny re-aligner. Similarly, the two spies re-aligned her destiny and saved her and her family from destruction of the city (Joshua 6:23). As Ecclesiastes 4:9, says that two are better than one, there was mutual benefit from both Rahab and the two spies, which secured an entire generation and brought glory to God.

Father You are glorious and clothed with power and strength. Lord You say in Your word that a three code strand cannot be easily broken. We trust in You dear Jesus. May You cement our relationships and marriages with Your love so that we may be effective in all areas of our lives. May You realign our destinies and make us fruitful in every way. May Your blessings and favor surround us, that we may occupy until You come. May You cover us with Your blood and deliver us from the snares of the evil one. Our Father who art in heaven; hallowed be Your name; Your Kingdom come; Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptations but deliver us from evil; for thine is the Kingdom the power and the glory; forever and ever. Amen

Galatians 3:13

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”

-The curse of the law brought death until Christ came to redeem and set us free. For instance, Coniah, Jeconiah or Jehoiachin; was cursed and cast out together with his descendants (Jeremiah‬ ‭22:28-30‬‬‬). All his children died in the captivity, and none could succeed him on the throne. He was the last legitimate king of Judah as traced in Matthew 1:11-16 until the birth of Jesus Christ. Such is the love that God demonstrated to us for when we were still sinners, Jesus died on the cross for us. He became sin so that we may become the righteousness of God. God has made us His children and legitimate kings and priests so that we may rule on earth. We therefore need to have strong faith in Him for His name is our strong tower, and when we run into it we are safe. Christ is our destiny re-aligner. He is able to do what no man can do. Whatever challenges that we might be going through, Jesus is able to deliver us from them all. Whatever ambitions or plan that we have, Christ is able to perfect everything that concerns us for the glory of His name.

We cast our eyes on You Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. We look to You in our situations and we have the sure hope that You are worthy and able to do great and mighty things in our lives. We cast all our burdens unto You Jesus for You care for us. May You break every chain that comes to delay or hinder our progress. May You fight for us all our battles and renew our strength. We commit all our works unto You for You shall establish our plans. Lord You shall perfect all that concerns us. Your lovingkindness is everlasting, great is Your faithfulness Oh Lord our God. May You bless the work of our hands and make us fruitful dear Jesus. May You teach us to number our days, so that we may obtain hearts of wisdom. We love You Lord, thank You for loving us first. Thank You for dying in the cross for our sins. Thank You for redeeming us with Your blood. Thank You for loving us dear Jesus. May You cover us with Your precious blood, and make us whole in You according to Your divine purposes. Amen

John‬ ‭5:3-6‬

“In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had. Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?”‭‭

-The parable of the man at the pool of Bethesda is a classic example of Jesus as our destiny re-aligner. Jesus healed the man who had suffered for thirty-eight years and was unable to access the stirred water. Jesus heals all our sicknesses,  weaknesses, addictions, limitations, and transforms our lives in a special way. We are called to trust in Him in whatever situations that we might be faced with, for He loves us and cares for us. 

Destiny re-aligners are people who God sends to help and re-direct individuals, families, societies, and nations in fulfilling their purposes in Him. Joshua pronounced a curse upon the city of Jericho that anyone who builds shall lay its foundation with his firstborn and the gates with his youngest child (Joshua‬ ‭6:26). The land became barren and many women and animals miscarried. During the time of King Asa of Judah and King Ahab of Israel, Hiel of Bethel rebuild the land. He laid its foundation with Abiram his firstborn, and with his youngest son Segub he set up its gates (1 Kings 16:34). Elisha became the destiny re-aligner of the city of Jericho. He sprinkled salt on the water source and healed the nation according to the word of the Lord (2 Kings‬ ‭2:19-22). The land was productive before it was cursed, and Israel came to besiege the city. When Joshua sent two spies to the land of Jericho, Rahab a harlot hid them on the roof of her house and they were successful in their conquest. When the city was destroyed, Rahab and her family were saved (Joshua‬ ‭2:1-4‬). Both Rahab and the two spies realigned the destinies of each other, and the entire nation. Abraham also re-aligned the destiny of Lot when he prayed for his salvation in Genesis‬ ‭18:23-26‬. Jesus loves us and re-alignes our destinies. He redeemed us from the curse of law by His blood on the cross (Galatians 3:13). ‭‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‭‭‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

Dear Heavenly Father, we come before You today at Your throne of mercy. We exalt You and honor You for there is none like You. You are worthy to be praised and worshiped. Great are You Lord and great are Your works and promises. We thank You for all You have done for us, and this far You have brought us. You have been with us, guiding us and protecting us, we thank You God and appreciate You. We declare that no weapon formed against you shall prosper, and no tongue that rises against us in judgment shall prevail in Your name Jesus. Father, we pray that You will continue re-aligning our destinies to what You have called us for Oh Lord. May You send us destiny re-aligners to help us where we struggle or need help. May You strengthen us and walk with us. Father may You give us with Your divine wisdom to know who are our destiny re-aligners, destiny helpers and to discern them. May You help us to accomplish that which will please You and benefit us, and Your kingdom for Your Glory. May You walk with us in this journey of purpose and straighten our paths in You. We pray for the sick and suffering, may You heal and deliver them. May You provide for the needy and all those who are struggling. Mighty Father may You bless us and keep us, may Your face shine upon us and be gracious to us. May You turn Your countenance towards us and give us peace. Amen.
