I was in Sunday service one blessed morning when choir raised the song ”destiny changer_come and change my destiny today”. During the ministration I was lost in thought and began to ask myself is God a destiny changer?
Virtually every christian in Nigeria is familiar with that song titled ”Destiny changer”. Have you ever asked yourself the following question?
1 Is God A destiny changer?
2 What of the story of Jabez?
3 What of lawyer/doctor that turns to a preacher?
After reading this post, you will get the facts right.
1 Is God a destiny changer?
The Bible made it clear that the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable meaning that it can not be changed.
Romans 11:29 for the gift and the calling of God are without repentance.
Gifts here can be seen as destiny just like Jesus told the parable of the talent which is equivalent to servants sent on a mission with different levels of talent(gifts/destiny). If the Gift of God is without repentance, God will not change a destiny He created.
2 Why would God Change A destiny HE created
Some will use the story of Jabez as a reference, you remember the story of Jabez?
Wait a minute, did God change the destiny of Jabez? You remember Jabez become honorable after he sought God? Now let us see the destiny of Jabez in 1Chronicles 4:9
”Jabez was more honorable than his brothers and his mother called his name Jabez , saying_ Because I bare him in pain.
Do you understand the above Scripture? God destined Jabez to be honorable but his mother’s curse on him seen in his name was affecting him. After Jabez prayed, God restored him to his destiny as seen in the scripture below
1Chronicles 4:10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou would bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him bis request.
The above scripture means that God did not change the destiny of Jabez, rather, HE restored his destiny to him just as written in the book of Joel 2:25 I will restore to you the years the locusts have eaten.

3 What of A lawyer/medical doctor that turned to a preacher
You might have seen some medical doctor that turned to a preacher Just like pastor Paul Enenche of The Dunamis International Gospel Center. You might also ask “what of apostle Paul that turned from a lawyer to a preacher? Is that not a change of destiny?
Have you asked yourself the above question? The fact that a medical doctor or lawyer turned to a preacher does not mean God changed his destiny, It simply means that God redirected him to his destiny. And atimes God allow people to venture to their own will first and gather experiences of life. Before the birth of any human, God has appointed him in a certain area of life not necessary a preacher. It might be business, teaching and other carrier.
Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as a prophet to the nations.
