Open Heaven 14 February 2018 Daily Devotional – Pastor E.A. Adeboye

Topic: Holy Unto the Lord

Memorise: Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. Psalm 91:14

Read: Daniel 1:1-8 (KJV)

1 In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah came Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon unto Jerusalem, and besieged it.
2 And the Lord gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, with part of the vessels of the house of God: which he carried into the land of Shinar to the house of his god; and he brought the vessels into the treasure house of his god.
3 And the king spake unto Ashpenaz the master of his eunuchs, that he should bring certain of the children of Israel, and of the king’s seed, and of the princes;
4 Children in whom was no blemish, but well favoured, and skilful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans.
5 And the king appointed them a daily provision of the king’s meat, and of the wine which he drank: so nourishing them three years, that at the end thereof they might stand before the king.
6 Now among these were of the children of Judah, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah:
7 Unto whom the prince of the eunuchs gave names: for he gave unto Daniel the name of Belteshazzar; and to Hananiah, of Shadrach; and to Mishael, of Meshach; and to Azariah, of Abednego.
8 But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.

Open Heavens Devotional 2018: [Open Heavens 14 February 2018]

Daniel: 6:18-22 (KJV)

6:18 Then the king went to his palace, and passed the night fasting: neither were instruments of musick brought before him: and his sleep went from him.
6:19 Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste unto the den of lions.
6:20 And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?
6:21 Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.
6:22 My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.

Bible in one year: Leviticus 6-7, 1st Corinthians 1, Hymnal: Sing Hymn 5RCCG Open Heavens 14 February 2018 Daily Devotional

Message: Open Heavens 14 February 2018
According to Psalm 91:14, one sure weapon against experiencing destruction and calamity is a life of holiness. Opinions differ on what it means to live a holy life, and to some, such a lifestyle is unattainable. open heaven 11 February 2018. However, with reference to biblical heroes of faith, I have been able to explain what holiness is all about. Holiness simply means obedience to God’s instructions. As long as you obey God’s commands, He sees you as an acceptable carrier of His image and He will love you for that. In John 14:21 and 23b, the Lord Jesus Christ expounded on this truth, saying:

Open Heavens Devotional 2018: 14 February 2018: Wednesday daily devotional by Pastor E. A. Adeboye – HOLY UNTO THE LORD

“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him…. If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.”

Every child of God who knows God’s holy nature will also know that before the Trinity would decide to dwell within a person, he or she must be living a consecrated and holy life.

In our text for today, we see how Daniel guarded himself against the calamity and destruction that would have terminated his destiny later in life. Daniel 1:8a says

RCCG Open Heavens Devotional 2018: Open Heavens 14 February 2018

“But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank:”

Please note that a portion of the king’s meat and some measure of the king’s wine were part of Daniel’s entitlements as an undergraduate in the University of Babylon where he was studying in preparation for service in the king’s court, but he declined having them. Open heavens 26 January 2018. Glory to God that Daniel’s modest life of consecration to God paid off for him on the day of calamity when he was thrown into the den of lions. He could testify to his friend, King Darius, in Daniel 6:22, saying:

“My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.”

Beloved, endeavour to live holy through a modest life of consecration unto God, and you can be sure of divine protection because of God’s love.

Prayer Point: Open Heavens 14 February 2018 Daily Devotional
Father, please help me to live holy for You and keep me safe in the holiness of your Son, Jesus Christ my Lord.

Open Heavens 16 October 2018 Daily Devotional – Paid in Full

Open Heavens 16 October 2018 Daily Devotional

Open Heavens 16 October 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye

Topic: Paid in Full

Memorize: For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. 2 Corinthians 8:9

Open Heavens 16 October 2018 Bible Reading: 1 Timothy 2:3-6

1 Timothy 2:3-6 King James Version (KJV)

3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

Open Heavens 16 October 2018 Bible in one year: Jeremiah 1-2, Luke 7:18-35

Open Heavens 16 October 2018 Daily Devotional Message:
In ancient times, a ransom was a price paid to secure the freedom of a slave, captive or prisoner. It had to be paid in full in order to cancel a debt or obligation, set one free from liabilities and charges, or secure an exemption from punishment.

A ransom is associated with redemption, atonement, deliverance, and salvation. In every situation requiring the payment of a ransom, victims are helpless because they cannot effect the payment of their own ransom.

In the same sense, humanity was in a hopeless and helpless situation because we lacked what was required to pay the price for our liberation from the penalty of sin. Thank God that Jesus Christ stepped in as a substitute for all humanity, paying our ransom in full. Open Heavens 16 October 2018 Daily Devotional – Paid in Full

The ransom He paid is effective for anyone on the face of the earth who by faith in the word of God receives salvation as a gift of God through Jesus Christ. In Matthew 20:28, Jesus said:

“Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.”

Through his suffering, painful death on the cross and glorious resurrection on the third day, He paid in full every price demanded for the redemption, atonement, deliverance and salvation of humanity.

Open Heavens 16 October 2018 Daily Devotional – Paid in Full
Therefore, if you are still under any form of bondage, receive your freedom now in the mighty Name of Jesus.
Now that Jesus Christ has paid our ransom in full and completely wiped away everything contrary to our destiny in God, what next? The answer is found in Romans 6:22:

“But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.’’

God expects that having freed you from the shackles of sin, you will not return to its bondage again. You ought to remain free by walking in holiness, exercising the power to live above sin that God has deposited in you (Romans 6:14). The end result of staying true to this is everlasting life. 1 Peter 1:15-16 says,

“But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; because it is written, Be ye holy, for I am holy.’’
We are called out of sin to live a holy life. Jesus paid your ransom in full; now, show appreciation and reciprocates His love by living holy as from today.

Open Heavens 16 October 2018 Action Point: Thank the Lord for the ransom He paid in full on your behalf. Think over any area of life where you are in bondage and prayerfully

Open Heavens 16 October 2018 Daily Devotional Hymn 7 – WONDERFUL STORY OF LOVE

1. Wonderful story of love;
Tell it to me again;
Wonderful story of love;
Wake the immortal strain!
Angles with rapture announce it,
Shepherds with wonder receive it;
Sinner, oh, won’t you believe it?
Wonderful story of love.

Chorus:

Wonderful! Wonderful!
Wonderful, Wonderful story of love.

2. Wonderful story of love;
Through you are far away;
Wonderful story of love;
Still He doth call today;
Calling from Calvary’s
Mountain,
Down from the crystal-bright
fountain,
E’en from the dawn of creation,
Wonderful story of love.

3. Wonderful story of love;
Jesus provides a rest;
Wonderful story of love;
For all the pure and blest,
Rest in those mansions above
us, With those who’ve gone on
before us,
Singing the rapturous chorus,
Wonderful story of love.

Open Heavens 15 October 2018 Daily Devotional – Learn to Trust God

Published

Open Heavens 16 October 2018 Daily Devotional

RCCG Open Heavens for 15 October 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye

Topic: Learn to Trust God

Memorise: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose Romans 8:28
Read: Psalm 37:4-6 (KJV)
4 Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

Bible in one year: Isaiah 65-66, Luke 6:46-7:17, Hymnal: sing Hymn 11

Open Heavens 15 October 2018 Daily Devotional Message:

Trusting God is one of the best things a child of God can ever learn to do. The moment you learn to trust God, life will become beautiful because you will begin to experience a kind of peace you never knew existed.

Initially, it can be quite hard for use to trust God due to the fact that His ways are higher than our ways, and until we get to know Him well, His instructions and commands might seem strange. Nevertheless, as a child of God, it is important that you learn to trust God blindly. Even if you cannot see around the bend, you should trust Him enough to know that he will always lead you aright. No matter how unconventional God’s ways are, one thing is sure: He has your best interest at heart. Jerusalem 29:11 says.

‘’For I know thoughts that I think toward you, said the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.’’

RCCG Open Heavens 15 October 2018 Daily Devotional – Learn to Trust God

Trusting God involves talking the backseat and letting God handle the major decisions and suitations in your life. It involve letting your will be so lost in His will until you start see things His perspective and feel things through His heart. It takes a lot trust in another individual to able to let go of your own will and let that person’s will prevail in your life. You can only trust someone that you love; so if you don’t love God genuinely, you cannot trust Him.

Open Heaven 15 October 2018 Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Learn to trust God

There was a day I was driving down from llorin to Lagos and my fuel tank was almost empty. Unknown to me, a fuel scarcity was on, and so all the filling stations I saw along the way had no fuel. I cried to God and he asked me to take my eyes off the fuel gauge and continue driving to Lagos. Although my fuel tank was already on reserve at the time he told me to do this, I said to Him ‘’Yes Lord’’ and I kept on driving. To the glory of God, I kept on driving on till I got to my house in Lagos. After I parked the car, I looked at the fuel gauge and it read empty! If I did not trust God completely, I would have parked my car in a safe place along the way and gone through the stress of finding an alternative means of getting home, instead of taking the risk of getting stranded along way.

The devil specializes in sowing seeds of doubt in our hearts so that our faith in God will diminish, because he knows that the moment you start doubting God, you will not be able to receive anything from Him (James 1:6-7). For this reason, it is very important to remind yourself of the good things God has done for you and others in the past. Encourage yourself with these testimonies in order to rekindle your faith. Learn to trust God, because it shows your love for Him.

RCCG Open Heavens 15 October 2018 Daily Devotional Key point:

If you don’t learn to trust God, then don’t expect anything from Him.

Open Heavens 15 October 2018 Daily Devotional Hymn 11 – O GOD, OUR HELP IN AGES PAST
1. O God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal home.

2. Under the shadow of Thy throne
Thy saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is Thine arm alone,
And our defence is sure

3. Before the hills in order stood,
Or earth receive her frame,
From everlasting Thou art God,
To endless years the same.

4. A thousand ages in Thy sight
Are like an evening gone;
Short as the watch that ends the
night
Before the rising sun.

5. Time, like an ever-rolling stream,
Bears all its sons away
They fly forgotten, as a dream
Dies at the opening day.

6. O God. Our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Be Thou our guard while life
Shall last,
And our external home.

Open Heavens 14 October 2018 Daily Devotional – Mercy Prevails Over Judgement by Pastor Adeboye

Topic: Mercy Prevails Over Judgement (Open Heaven 14 October 2018)

Memorise: “For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.”- James 2:13

Read: Psalm 51:1-14 (KJV)

1 (To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba.) Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

Bible in One Year: Isaiah 61-64, Luke 6:24-45

Open Heavens 14 October 2018 Daily Devotional MESSAGE:
For us as human beings, mercy is one of the most essential attributes of God, because this is God’s character by which He faithfully keeps His covenant, fulfils His promises and maintains His relationship with His children, despite our shortcomings, unworthiness and unfaithfulness (Romans 9:15-16). Mercy connotes goodness, grace, favor and steadfast love (Ephesians 2:4). The most prominent aspect of mercy is the compassionate disposition to forgive an offender in order to help his or her sorry situation.

The Bible shows that Jesus is God’s mercy personified, and by His death and resurrection, we have open access to God’s mercy. 1 Peter 1:3 says:

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,”

Open Heavens 14 October 2018 Daily Devotional – Mercy Prevails Over Judgement by Pastor Adeboye

God’s mercy brings about the conversion of sinners, instructs the ignorant, counsels the doubtful and comforts the sorrowful. It also forgives and overlooks injurious acts, and patiently puts up with human errors and weaknesses. The mercy of Jesus Christ earns us His free legal representation before the Father, and secures the Spirit’s continued intercession for us with groaning which cannot be uttered. Against this background, we can boldly say that God’s mercy prevails over judgment, as stated in today’s memory verse. Interestingly, two terms are commonly used to explain the relationship between mercy and judgment in this passage. One says mercy “triumphs over” judgment. Both descriptions paint vivid pictures of victory and celebration in seemingly hopeless situation.

Knowing that judgment is the deserved consequences for sin, the intervention of divine mercy that turns things around and makes a culprit “rejoice against” and “triumph over” judgment is indeed a miracle. The ultimate act of God’s mercy is the work of substitution that Jesus Christ performed on the cross of Calvary. 2 Corinthians 5:21 says:

“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”

Open Heavens 14 October 2018 Daily Devotional – Mercy Prevails Over Judgement by Pastor Adeboye

God’s mercy is still flowing from the throne of grace today. Irrespective of your shortcomings, go before His throne in humility, and you will receive mercy to triumph over sin, sickness, failure, poverty and everything that is working against your peace.

Open Heavens 14 October 2018 Daily Devotional Prayer Point:
Father, please let Your mercy prevail over every unfavorable judgment against my life, in Jesus’ Name.

Open Heaven 14 October 2018 Daily Devotional Hymn 3: What Can Wash Away My Sins?
1. What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Chorus:
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

2. For my cleansing this I see,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my pardon this my plea,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

3. Nothing can for sin erase
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of works, ‘tis all of grace,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

4. This is all my hope and peace,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This is all my righteousness,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
