TOPIC: Destiny Destroyers 

MEMORY VERSE: Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV)

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”

BIBLE PASSAGE: 1 Kings 11:1-6 (KJV) (RCCG Sunday School Student Manual 16 June 2024)

1 But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites:

2 Of the nations concerning which the Lord said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.

3 And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.

4 For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as was the heart of David his father.

5 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.

6 And Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord, and went not fully after the Lord, as did David his father.


Destiny is God’s purpose for a man’s life. It is a divinely pre-planned destination. It is the totality of God’s counsel for a person and what He has decided concerning a person even before conception (Jeremiah 1:5). As good as it is, at several points in life, it still depends on one’s attitude and agreement with God. God has a prepared destination for us and we must surrender totally to Him to avoid destiny destroyers that may want to scuttle God’s plan for our lives.




Some destiny destroyers are mentioned below:

  1. Ignorance: This is a destiny destroyer (Hosea 4:6). If we are aware of our destiny, we shall be free, focused, and fulfiled. Failure to do so may lead to destruction (John 8:32).
  2. Pursuit Of Vanity: Solomon pursued so much vanity until he became a complete backslider. The privileges of wealth and lack of self-control ruined his destiny (Ecclesiastes 2:10-11).
  3. Lack Of Faith: This is also a destiny destroyer (1Timothy 1:19).
  4. Pride: Pride is excessive self-esteem. It is when you are filled with an exciting sense of credit due to yourself. Pride is a sin and it leads to loss and destruction (James 4:6).
  5. Sinful Lifestyles: Sins not confessed and forsaken are dangerous because they provoke God to anger. A man who is living in sin cannot fulfil his destiny or attain the eternal destination which God has promised (1 John 3:4; Romans 3:23).
  6. Anger: Uncontrolled emotional outburst has led many people out of God’s purpose for their lives (Ecclesiastes 7:9; Proverbs 29:22).
  7. Laziness: This will make an idle person perpetually under the industrious person. (Proverbs 12:24).
  8. Prayerlessness: It can cause the enemy to take advantage of a man’s destiny (Matt.13:25).

CLASS ACTIVITY 1: Students should mention some of the things people are engaged in that are capable of destroying their destinies.


There are cases of people who, by one means or the other, had their destinies destroyed. They include Solomon (1 Kings 11:1-11), Samson (Judges 16:6-18), Judas Iscariot (Matthew 27:3-5), Demas (2 Timothy 4:10), Gehazi (2 Kings 5:20-27), Reuben (Genesis 49:3-4), Achan (Joshua 7:24-25).

CLASS ACTIVITY 2: Mention why you think some people are bent on destroying their own destinies e.g. smokers.

CONCLUSION: Run away from destiny destroyers and make up your mind to live a life that will enhance the fulfilment of your destiny.


  1. Mention five destiny destroyers that you know.
  2. Identify four cases of people whose destinies were destroyed as found in the Bible.

ASSIGNMENT: Mention five people in the Bible whose destinies were destroyed and the cause. (2×5=10 marks).
