Open Heaven Devotional For 24th April 2023
TOPIC: More Than Victory
MEMORISE: “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” – Romans 8:37 (KJV)
SCRIPTURE READING: 2 Chronicles 20:1-25 (KJV)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Kings 17-18
God is so generous that when He wants to give you victory, He makes you more than a conqueror (Romans 8:37). He doesn’t just give you victory, He gives it abundantly. David said in Psalm 23:5 that God did not only give him victory over his enemies, He also prepared a table for him right in their presence. Now that is a different level of victory.
In our Bible reading for today, three kings came against Jehoshaphat, but God used them to destroy one another and then all their wealth was transferred to Jehoshaphat. Without fighting at all, Jehoshaphat and his people enjoyed victory and gained so much spoil that it took three days to transport it all to their country. This is in line with God’s promise in Deuteronomy 28:7:
The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
The Almighty God says that because He has decided to help you, those who are incensed against you shall perish and become as nothing (Isaiah 41:10-13). The Lord says He shall fight for you while you just hold your peace (Exodus 14:14). He says further in Colossians 2:14-15:
Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
You should be rejoicing if you are truly a child of God. Those who don’t know Jesus Christ don’t know what they are missing. The One inside you is greater than he that is in the world. To qualify as one of those who God loves and abides with, simply obey Him (John 14:23). If you want to experience victory over your enemies without a fight, obey all His commandments.
PRAYER POINT: Father, please give me the grace to obey all Your commandments, in Jesus’ name.
HYMN 10: IN CHRIST ALONE
1 In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when striving cease,
My Comforter, my All in All,
Here in the love of Christ I stand.
2 In Christ alone who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless Babe
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save
‘Til on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied,
For every sin on Him was laid,
Here in the death of Christ I live.
3 There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day,
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory,
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine,
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
4 No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Could ever pluck me from His hand,
‘Til He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I stand.
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 clease 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
