Open Heaven 30 May 2019: [Thursday] Daily Devotional By Pastor E.A Adeboye – God still chooses for His own
GOD STILL CHOOSES FOR HIS OWN – Thursday May 30th 2019
Memorise: Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Proverbs 3:5
Read: Proverbs 3:1-8 (KJV)
1 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:
2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.
8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
Bible in one year: Leviticus 14, Jeremiah 46:1-19, Hymnal: Sing hymn 3
Open Heaven 30 May 2019 Thursday Message:-
In these perilous times, we must always keep in mind that God is still in the business of choosing and directing the manner of life His children should live. If God is trying to lead your life on a certain path, I rejoice with you, because this shows that He has special interest in you. When God shows special interest in a person’s life, it is because He wants to show His awesomeness to the world through that person. God will make you a sign-post to the world on the awesomeness of His power in Jesus’ Name. Jesus said in Matthew 22:14:
“For many are called, but few are chosen.”
We are the few? The few are those who allow God to chart the course of their lives and allow Him rule over their affairs. The level of which you allow God to have His way in your life shows how much you trust Him. Moses was a leader who would not do anything unless God approves of it. In his conversation with the Almighty, he emphatically told God in Exodus 33:15,
“…If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.”
How pleasant our lives would be if we make God the captain of our ship. David is another man who trusted God’s judgement and sought God’s direction whenever he was faced with difficult situations. When his camp at Ziklag was raided and his wives and children, as well as those of his soldiers, were all carried away as captives, one would have expected David, as the commander of the formidable army, to immediately ride out and pursue the raiders. On the contrary, he did not move until he got clearance from God (1st Samuel 30:8). Imagine the strength and confidence with which David pursued the marauding raiders once he got divine backing from the Lord of hosts Himself. When we allow God to chart the course of our lives, we can never suffer failure or defect. Children of God who gamble with their lives when taking critical decisions should blame themselves and not God when they fail or are defected.
Open Heaven 30 May 2019 Thursday Action Point
Today’s Bible reading is full of divine wisdom and loaded with several benefits. It encourages us to keep God’s law in our hearts and allow it rule our lives. The result is that we will live a long and peaceful life. When we live within the framework of God’s precepts, He will favour us and cause men to favour us as well. Whenever you are where God wants you to be, you cannot expect anything less than His favour because you are in His will. Earlier in my life, my ambition was to be the youngest professor in my chosen discipline. However, the Lord commanded me to carry my cross and continue from where my father in the Lord stopped. I am enjoying my life today because I answered “Yes Lord.” No other answer could have turned out better for me. Beloved, let God choose for you! Don’t be among those who think they can use and dump God for their selfish interest. In your career, marriage, where to settle in life and so on, acknowledge the supremacy of God’s judgement and align yourself with His purpose. You will not regret you did.
Yield to the Lord in every area where you have been battling with His choice for you.
