OPEN HEAVEN 2023 DEVOTIONAL WAS WRITTEN BY PASTOR E.A ADEBOYE, PASTOR MRS FOLU ADEBOYE OF THE REDEEM CHRISTIAN CHURCH OF GOD (RCCG) NIGERIA.
Open Heaven Devotional, 5th Of June 2023
TOPIC: No Holiness, No Miracles
MEMORISE: “Having, therefore, these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” – 2 Corinthians 7:1 (KJV)
SCRIPTURE READING: Ephesians 5:1-5 (KJV)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Job 39-42
Some people query God for not answering their prayers because they have been praying for so long. This has made them conclude that God is not real. The problem, however, is not with Him; after all many other people receive answers to prayers from Him daily. If there is a problem at all, it is likely to be from the fellow who is praying. Isaiah 59:1-2 tells us that God can always hear us but our sins separate and hide our faces from Him. If He doesn’t hear your prayer at all, how is He going to answer? How can you continue in sin and expect grace to abound? The Bible’s response to that is, “God forbid” (Romans 6:1- 2).
Some people sow in Church and get no harvest, then they turn around to say that God’s word is not true, whereas the issue may be that God rejected their offering because of their sins (Proverbs 15:8). He must first accept you before He can accept your offering.
A lady attended one of our programmes because she had heard that Pastor Adeboye has a special anointing for making the barren fruitful after praying for them. She met with me and I prayed for her. While praying for her, I laid my hand upon her and she fell. When she came around, she rejoiced that she had fallen under the anointing and was sure her miracle was on the way. A year later, she came back with a query because she had not given birth. I was already thinking that maybe God wanted to give her a second touch when all of a sudden, I heard God say, “Ask her how many boyfriends she has”. If I hadn’t known the voice of God, I wouldn’t have asked because she was a highly placed person in the society. I managed to ask her and she said she had six boyfriends! I was shocked. How can you expect a baby from God when you are keeping six boyfriends apart from your husband? How would she have known the real father?
Many people want a miracle, whereas what they are really asking for is magic. God is Holy and He is a miracle worker, not a magician like the devil. Begin to live holy from today so that when you call on God, you can rest assured that He will answer you.
Holiness is the master key to getting God’s attention.
OPEN HEAVEN HYMN 23: Take My Life, And Let It Be
1 Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord to Thee;
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise,
Let them flow in endless praise.
2 Take my hands, and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love;
Take my feet, and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee,
Swift and beautiful for Thee.
3 Take my voice and let me sing
Always, only, for my King;
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee,
Filled with messages from Thee.
4 Take my silver and my gold;
Not a mite would I withhold;
Take my intellect, and use
Every power as Thou shalt choose,
Every power as Thou shalt choose.
5 Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine:
Take my heart, it is Thine own;
It shall be Thy royal throne,
It shall be Thy royal throne.
6 Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee,
Ever, only, all for Thee.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Please say this pray
I come to You, Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. Wash me away from all unrighteousness and cleanse me clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised.
Thank you for saying that prayer, you are in CHRIST now, Old things have passed AWAY………….HALLELUYAH
