Destiny Enforcers

23rd December 2020

Scripture Reading: Luke 2: 1-20


“1. And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. 4. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)” (Luke 2: 1, 4)

Our Focal Scripture speaks of that moment when Ceasar Augustus sent out a decree that a census be conducted. That decree forced Joseph and Mary to move to Bethlehem where Jesus was born. According to Micah 5 vs. 2, the prophecy of Jesus’ birth revealed that He would be born in Bethlehem. So the decree from Caesar propelled the fulfillment of prophecy. Caesar’s decree helped Joseph to fulfill purpose with precision.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: God will send you men who will propel you to fulfill purpose. God will send you men who will take actions that will help your destiny to move forward. God will send you men who will give decrees that will give you opportunities for progress and increase. God will send you men whose personal interest will align with your advancement. God will position men who will push you closer to destiny.

Ceasar was the King that ruled in the season of Jesus’ birth, and he gave a decree that propelled Joseph to the place of fulfillment of prophecy. Put differently, the throne of a King worked in favour of Joseph’s movement towards destiny fulfillment. Hear me as I hear the Lord: the thrones of other men will align with your destiny advancement. The thrones of the kings of this world will issue decrees that will work for your good.

Notice that when a decree came from Caesar, it sent Joseph to Bethlehem, not away from Bethlehem. That decree did not dislocate Joseph from the location of his prophecy. Hear me as I hear the Lord: no man will dislocate you from destiny. No man will send you away from the place of your miracle. No man will disconnect you from the divine release coming to you. No decree of a king will dislocate you in destiny.

Get set: your destiny enforcers are by the corner. The men that will help you fulfill destiny are on the way to you.


God will send me men who will help me fulfil destiny, in Jesus’ name!
