Open Heavens 1 August 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor Adeboye

Topic: Kings of the King

Memorise: But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. 1st Peter 2:9

Read: Daniel 4:28-37 (KJV)
28 All this came upon the king Nebuchadnezzar.
29 At the end of twelve months he walked in the palace of the kingdom of Babylon.
30 The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?
31 While the word was in the king’s mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee.

Open Heavens 1 August 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor Adeboye – Kings of the King
32 And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.
33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles’ feathers, and his nails like birds’ claws.
34 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:
35 And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?

Open Heavens 1 August 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor Adeboye – Kings of the King
36 At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me; and my counsellors and my lords sought unto me; and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me.
37 Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase.

Bible in one year: Esther 4-7, Matthew 12:9-32, Hymnal: Sing hymn 2

Message; “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak in the day of judgement.” Matthew 12:36

It is unfortunate that King Nebuchadnezzar did not know the above scripture; perhaps he would have been spared the agony of experiencing God’s humbling judgement for seven years. While the strolled in his palace on a day like any other, he flippantly attributed his conquests and success to his ability, forgetting that there are kings and there is the King of Kings. He did not consider the benevolence of God Almighty in his rise to greatness, and this attitude sent him to God’s school of humility. May you never have to learn humility by passing through this school in Jesus’ Name. As children of God who have been made kings unto God, there are many lessons we should learn from King Nebuchadnezzar. Open Heavens 1 August 2018 – Kings of the King

As revealed in today’s memory verse, the reason for our divine election as Kings is to show forth the praises of the Almighty Abba Father, who has called us out of darkness into the marvellous light of His Son, Jesus (Revelation 1:6). We have indeed been made joint-heirs of the throne of our Lord and Saviour (Revelation 3:21, Ephesians 2:6). Based on Nebuchadnezzar’s experience, it will be dangerous for us to forget that we are who we are only because of God’s grace. The Holy Spirit reminds us of this in 1st Corinthians 4:7, saying:

For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?”

Open Heavens 1 August 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor Adeboye – Kings of the King
Children of God should be conscious of the fact that we were not redeemed to boast or to please ourselves. Revelations 4:10 reveals that the elders in heaven lay their crowns at God’s feet in worship and adoration; this is exactly what the King of kings expects from us also. The question is, how seriously do you take the Lordship of Jesus Christ over your life?

Christians who live in lawlessness due to unlimited liberty are saying that they have no King above them. Therefore beloved, examine yourself today to see whether you have taken control of your life away from the King of kings. If you have, quickly return the authority over your life back to Him. Furthermore, do not forget that your crown as a king under the King is called the crown of righteousness; therefore, walk and reign on His behalf in perfection (2nd Timothy 4:8).

Action Point: Open Heavens 1 August 2018 Daily Devotional
Confess to the Lord your submission and loyalty to His lordship over your life.

SING HYMN NO: 2 – I NEED THEE EVERY HOUR – OPEN HEAVEN 1 AUGUST 2018
I need Thee every hour,
Most gracious Lord;
No tender voice like Thine
Can peace afford.

Chorus
I need Thee, oh, I need Thee;
Every hour I need Thee;
Oh, bless me now, my Savior!
I come to Thee

I need Thee every hour,
Stay Thou nearby;
Temptations lose their power
When Thou art nigh.

I need Thee every hour,
In joy or pain;
Come quickly and abide,
Or life is vain.

I need Thee every hour,
Teach me Thy will;
And Thy rich promises
In me fulfil.

I need Thee every hour
Most Holy One;
Oh, make me Thine Indeed,
Thou blessed Son.

Teens Open Heavens 18 October 2018 – Who’s The Waiter?

Published

Teens Open Heavens 18 October 2018

Teens Open Heavens 18 October 2018 

Topic: Who’s The Waiter?

Memorise: Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof: so he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured. – Proverbs 27:18

Read: Isaiah 40:29-31 (KJV)

Bible In One Year: Isaiah 65-66, 2 Thessalonians 1

Teens Open Heavens 18 October 2018 MESSAGE:

Although prayer cannot change God, it can however change weakness to strength. Our Bible reading for today says that there is an exchange of strength when you wait on the Lord in prayer. This means whenever you access God’s presence, go with all your weaknesses and failings. Go in as an empty vessel that is ready to be filled.

Never enter His presence with the notion that you have it all, that you have arrived or that you do not really need Him. You may lose what you think you have and return empty. When you wait on the Lord, you are to the waiter and He your Guest. Serve Him only what He likes and not what you like. Unfortunately, because many of us do not understand what it is to wait on Him, we turn Him into the waiter and we the guest; we bombard Him with orders. From today, go into God’s presence and be the waiter.

Key Point: When you genuinely wait on God, men will wait on you.

Teens Open Heavens 18 October 2018 Hymn 16:

1. Christian, seek not yet repose
Hear thy gracious Savior say;
Thou art in the midst of foes:
Watch and pray.

2. Principalities and power
Mustering their unseen array
Wait for the unguarded hours:
Watch and pray

3. Gird the heavenly armor on,
Wear it ever night and day;
Ambushed lies the evil one:
Watch and pray.

4. Hear the victors who o’ercame,
Still they mark each warrior’s way;
All with one sweet voice exclaim,
Watch and pray.

5. Hear, above all, hear thy Lord,
Him thou loves to obey;
Hide within thy heart His word:
Watch and pray.

6. Watch, as if on that alone
Hung the issue of the day;
Pray, that help may be sent down:
Watch and pray.

Open Heavens 18 October 2018 Daily Devotional – A Son Indeed?

Open Heavens 18 October 2018 Daily Devotional

Open Heavens 18 October 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye

Topic: A Son Indeed?

Memorise: But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. Hebrews 12:8

Bible Reading: Hebrew 12:4-11(KJV)

4 Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.

5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:

6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.

Open Heavens 18 October 2018 Daily Devotional – A Son Indeed?
11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

Bible in one year: Jeremiah 5-6 Luke 8:4-2, Hymnals sing hymns 2

Open Heavens 18 October 2018 Daily Devotional Message:
Discipline is the act of training a person to obey rules and follow instructions, which sometimes involves corrective punishment for wrongdoing.

The bible clearly establish that God expect parents to discipline their children (Proverbs 23:13-14, Ephesians 6:4) Parents who failed in this responsibility suffered great consequences, as seen in the example of Eli (1st Samuel 2:27-34).

Being a just God, he cannot require discipline from earthly parents and fail in his responsibility to discipline his own children, as the Heavenly Father. All act of disciplining God’s children ultimately come from God, and the methods used are determined by Him.

However, His motive is always love, while His goals remain making us partakers of His holiness (Hebrew 12:10). God discipline His children as part of His covenant with them. Consequently, only disciplined children of God has access to His covenant blessings. Job 36:10-11 says:

‘’He openeth also there ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity if they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and there years in pleasures.’’

Interestingly, God in his infinity wisdom has set discipline as the number one criteria ascertaining true children of God. Hebrew 12:8 says

‘’But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.’’

Consequently, if you notice that you are getting away with sin and immorality without any type of warning or discipline of God, then you can be sure that heaven does not recognize you as a true child of God.

As soon as a person accepts Lordship of Jesus Christ, he or she become a genuine member of God’s family, and the love of God will immediately kick-start the process of discipline in order to bring the new convert to perfection in due time. May you always cooperate with God for the purpose of receiving proper discipline in Jesus’ Name.

Open Heavens 18 October 2018 Daily Devotional – A Son Indeed?
As a child of God, receiving divine discipline with humility comes with great benefits. Discipline prevents children of God from going astray and brings us to perfection.

Disciplined Christian’s easily overcome temptation. They are like smooth stones in the hands of God and are mightily use by Him against the kingdom of darkness. Open your heart to receive Godly discipline and correction today.

Open Heavens 18 October 2018 Daily Devotional Prayer point: Father, as I commit myself to your discipline today, help me to humbly receive your correction in Jesus’ name.

Open Heavens 18 October 2018 Sing Hymn 2 – WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS
Verse 1:
What a Friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

Verse 2:
Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged,
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness,
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Verse 3:
Are we weak and heavy-laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge,
Take it to the Lord in prayer;
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer;
In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
Thou wilt find a solace there.

Open Heavens 18 October 2018 Daily Devotional

Open Heavens 17 October 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye

Topic: Ready-Made Provision or Trap?

Memorise: There is a why which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Proverb 14:12

Open Heavens 17 October 2018 Bible Reading: Proverbs 7:6-23 (KJV)

6 For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,

7 And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,

8 Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,

9 In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:

10 And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.

11 (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:

12 Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)

13 So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him,

14 I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.

15 Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.

16 I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt.

17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.

18 Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.

19 For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:

20 He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed.

Open Heavens 17 October 2018 Daily Devotional – Ready-Made Provision or Trap?
21 With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.

22 He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;

23 Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life.

Open Heavens 17 October 2018 Bible in one year: Jeremiah 3-4 Luke 7:36-8:3, Hymn sing hymn 5

Open Heavens 17 October 2018 Daily Devotional Message:

In these perilous times, life is so full of struggles and hard labour that do not always result in success.

All around the world, people invest precious time and money into obtaining high school and college education, only to graduate and discover that jobs are nonexistent.

In some cases, people invest years into specialized training in various crafts and trades, only to graduate and begin to source for financial backing and start-up capital without success.

There are some who manage to gain employment with private companies or who succeed in starting small scale businesses, but some years down the line, they find themselves back in the labour market due to harsh economic realities.

These hardships have made the availability of ready-made provision very attractive to the average person, especially in developing countries like we have in Africa. Click To Read – Open Heaven 16 October 2018

The dire economic situation in different parts of the world has led some Christians to wrongly assume that every opportunity that comes their way is Gods providence, not realizing their error until contrary events begin to happen to them in the process of exploiting these ‘’opportunities’’.

I pray that no matter the prevailing conditions in your community, the Lord will divinely open doors of genuine opportunities to you in Jesus’ name.

In Africa and several developing countries, the difficult political and economic situation couple with security challenges has led a lot of people, especially youths, into traps that initially appeared like ready-made provision.

Open Heavens 17 October 2018 Daily Devotional – Ready-Made Provision or Trap?
These traps could come in form of employment with very attractive pay packages,’ juicy marriage offers,’ fantastic’ business opportunities or even invitations to travel abroad.

Hidden behind these seemingly great offers are terrible vices like prostitution, drug trafficking, criminal syndicates, fraud, occultism and the like. For example, many young people have honored invitations to travel abroad only to get get trapped in sex trafficking or being used as drug couriers.

Some people have entered neck deep into what they thought was an ordinary business relationship, only for them to later discover that they have been initiated into powerful occult groups.

Many vulnerable youths are enticed into armed gangs which eventually result in untimely death for so many. As seen in today’s bible reading, you must recognize that the devil’s ready –made provisions are nothing but deadly traps.

God has assured you that He will provide for all your needs and settle all your problems (Hebrew 13:5, 1st Peter 5:7). Therefore, beware of devil’s traps.

Open Heavens 17 October 2018 Prayer point: Father, preserve me from ever falling into the trap of false opportunities, in Jesus name.

Open Heavens 17 October 2018 Daily Devotional – Hymn 5 – I HAVE DECIDED TO FOLLOW JESUS

1. I have decide to follow Jesus;
I have decided to follow Jesus;
I have decided to follow Jesus;
No turning back, no turning back.

2. The world behind me, the cross
Before me;
The world behind me, the cross
before me;
The world behind me, the cross
Before me;
No turning back, no turning back.

3. Through none go with me, still I
Will follow;
Through none go with me, still I
Will follow;
Through none go with me, still I
Will follow;
No turning back, no turning back.

4. My cross 1’ll carry, till I see Jesus;
My cross 1’ll carry, till I see Jesus;
My cross 1’ll carry, till I see Jesus;
No turning back, no turning back.

5. Will you decide now to follow
Jesus?
Will you decide now to follow
Jesus?
Will you decide now to follow
Jesus?
No turning back, no turning back.
