OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 8th APRIL 2021 MESSAGE
When I was younger, I loved studying because I liked to perform excellently and get the accolades of my father. I remember when I scored 70 in a subject and ran to my father in excitement. He looked at the result and asked, Why didn’t you score 80? I was sad that he didn’t appreciate my effort, yet, I planned to do better.
The following term, I scored 80 and expected to be patted on the back; he asked again Why didn’t you score 90?. Rather than get discouraged, it gingered me to work harder in order to score 100 in all subjects.
This is how God is to His children; He smiles when you achieve big things especially when He gets the glory but He won’t make you settle there. He will motivate you to do greater things.
In John 14:12, Jesus said that we would do greater things. What you have achieved so far in your studies, home, fellowship, neighbourhood or church is nothing compared to what God has in store for you. There is room to do better. God is saying to you, come up higher.
