Open Heavens for Teens 19 May 2019 – Target the root

DATE: SUNDAY, MAY 19, 2019.

MEMORISE: For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, Job 14:7

Read: Mark 7:14-15, 21-23 
14. And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:
15. There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
21. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
22. Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
23. All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

Open Heavens for Teens 19 May 2019 Message

To effectively deal with a problem, wisdom demands that you take it from its roots. A tree that is cut down can still grow; with time, it will spring up again. The only time you are assured of total victory is when the enemy is uprooted. It is not enough for Goliath to fall, he can rise again after recovering strength. Until his head is cut off, there should be no celebration.
There are some problems that should not be taken at face value. Think deep and hard before you take any action against them.

Open Heavens for Teens 19 May 2019 Prayer Point

There are some problems that could exist in the life of a fellow as a result of secret sin. For instance, if as a teenager, you have problem with sex, you find it hard to say no to sexual advances, even when you know you will regret it afterwards. The root you need to pull out might be pornographic movies or pictures and bad friends. Until you deal with this, you will find it difficult to be totally free from the sin of fornication.

Lord, please remove every root of sin in my life.

2 Kings 23-25, John 7:1-31

Hymn 6
1. Our God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal home:

2. Under the shadow of your throne
Your saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is your arm alone,
And our defense is sure

3. Before the hills in order stood
Or earth received its frame,
From everlasting you are God,
To endless years the same.

4. A thousand ages in your sight
Are like an evening gone
Short as the watch that ends the night
Before the rising sun.

5. Time, like an ever-rolling stream,
Soon bears us all away;
We fly forgotten, as a dream
Does at the opening day.

6. Our God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Still be our guard while troubles last,
And our eternal home!
