Open Heaven for Teens 8 March 2021 Devotional MESSAGE:
As a first child and daughter, leadership was thrust on me at a very young age. I became responsible for directing and instructing my younger ones and ensured they complied with the instructions of our parents. Little did I know that God was preparing me for a major role of leadership for His kingdom advancement here on earth. I went through many unpleasant experiences that eventually brought my husband and I to the Lord many years ago. As I got deeper in fellowship with God, He dealt with my weaknesses, pruned me, healed me and I started growing in the fruit of the Spirit.
My dear daughter, a virtuous lady is a whole lady (complete package): good morals, wise, domestic, sound and godly. To be a virtuous lady, you need to first allow God into your heart so that He can mold you according to His taste. You also need to take lessons from your mother; learn how to do chores, cook, bake and clean the house. Dont be lazy especially if you live in a house where there are maids, offer to do some chores. Remember, you will not become a virtuous woman suddenly when you get married, you have to grow into it and this is the time to grow. May you become a virtuous lady in Jesus name.
ACTION POINT: Celebrate all the women you know today with kind words.
HYMN 16: My Faith Looks Up To Thee
- My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Now hear me while I pray,
Take all my guilt away,
Oh, let me from this day
Be wholly Thine!
- May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart,
My zeal inspire!
As Thou hast died for me,
Oh, may my love to Thee
Pure, warm and changeless be,
A living fire!
- While life’s dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread,
Be Thou my guide; i
Bid darkness turn to day,
Wipe sorrow’s tears away,
Nor let me ever stray
From Thee aside.
- When ends life’s transient dream,
When death’s cold sullen stream
Shall o’er me roll;
Blest Savior, then, in love,
Fear and distrust remove;
Oh, bear me safe above,
A ransomed soul.
