No Destiny Reversal

7th February 2022

Scripture Reading: Matthew 14: 1-20


“At that time Herod the tetrarch heard of the fame of Jesus,” (Matthew 14: 1)

Our Focal Scripture throws light on Herod the tetrarch, ruler over Israel in the days of Jesus. The lineage of Herod came from Edom, who were descendants of Esau. Recall that in Genesis 25 vs. 23, God has said to Rebecca, “…the older will serve the younger”. God had destined Esau to serve Jacob; God destined Edom to serve Israel, but several generations later, there was a destiny reversal and Edomites began to rule over Israel.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: in 2022, there will be no destiny reversal. You will not move from the front to the back. You will not move from the top to the bottom. You will not move from the mountain to the valley. You will not move from relevance to irrelevance. You will not move from being in charge to being under suppression. You will not move from where God has kept you to where the devil wants to keep you.

Israel was meant to rule over Edom, but the reverse happened, and people who ought not to rule over Israel began to rule over them. Hear me as I hear the Lord: whatever is not meant to rule over you, in 2022, it will never be said that it began to rule over you. Whatever the Lord has placed under your feet will not suddenly rise above you. Whatsoever the Lord has given you victory over, will not turn around and gain victory over you.

I pray for you: you will not make mistakes that will put you under when you should be on top. You will not, by your actions, reposition yourself wrongly at the back when the Lord has originally positioned you in the front, ahead of your contemporaries. You will not make destiny mistakes that will demote you in 2022. You will not be caught in the midst of people who will help you to pull yourself down. Your destiny won’t be exchanged.

Nothing, and no one, that is meant to be under you will rise to rule over you. Your greatness will not be reversed.


My destiny will not be reversed; what I am meant to rule over will not rule over me, in Jesus’ name!
