Open Heaven 22 April 2019: [Monday] Daily Devotional By Pastor E.A Adeboye – The Great Shall Serve Thee
THE GREAT SHALL SERVE THEE– Monday April 22nd 2019
Memorise: I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Psalm 2:7
Read: Isaiah 49:22-26 (KJV)
22 Thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I will lift up mine hand to the Gentiles, and set up my standard to the people: and they shall bring thy sons in their arms, and thy daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders.
23 And kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow down to thee with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am the Lord: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me.
24 Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered?
25 But thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.
26 And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the Lord am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.
Bible in one year: Genesis 25-26, Jeremiah 23:1-15, Hymn: Sing hymn 7
Open Heaven 22 April 2019 Monday Message:-
God’s promises to His children are great, and their scope cannot be fathomed with the human mind. This is because our God is the Almighty, the beginning and the End of all things, the All-knowing and the All-powerful God. Colossians 1:16 tells us that all things in heaven and earth were made by Him: visible and invisible, thrones and dominions, principalities and powers. All these were created by Him and for Him. Heaven and earth adore Him, and angels bow before Him. He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He is the final authority, and His word is settled in heaven. In 1st Corinthians 2:9, this great God said concerning His promises:
Anyone who has walked with this great God and has tasted of His goodness will testify that the words of this verse are true. A cursory look at the stories of Abraham, Moses, Esther, Rahab, David, Solomon, Job, Joseph, Nehemiah, Daniel, Samuel, the nation of Israel, Mary the mother of Jesus, and many other too numerous to mention also confirms this truth. Indeed, God is in the business of doing new thing of great proportions in the lives of His children from generation to generation. Just as He did for those in ages past, He will visit you with a record-breaking blessing today in Jesus’ Name.
Open Heaven 22 April 2019 Monday: Prayer Point
By the grace of God, I can also testify that I have experienced in my own life and ministry blessings of the proportion that eyes have not seen and ears have not heard; they are far beyond any human imagination. The manifestation of God’s glory being experienced by the Church of Christ in all the nations of the world simultaneously is indeed beyond human comprehension. Therefore, I can boldly say that God’s promise in today’s Bible reading, which says that great leaders and kings shall serve children of God, is not empty promise. It is part of our heritage as beneficiaries of God’s mercy and unmerited favour. Hallelujah! As God used great kings and powerful leaders to favour Abraham, Moses, Joseph, Daniel, Esther, Nehemiah, David and Ezra, He will do the same for you today in Jesus’ Name. Isaiah 60:5, 14 and 16 reiterate that the abundance of the sea shall be at your disposal. Those verses also say unbelievers will labour for your sustenance, kings will become the source of your livelihood, the children of your oppressors shall bow before you, and those who despised you shall be humbled in your presence. So shall it be in Jesus’ Name.
Father, please bring Your wonderful promises to pass in my life in Jesus’ Name.
