Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye
MEMORIZE: “For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.” (Prov. 23:18).
READ: Proverbs 23:17-18
“Redeeming the time, because the days are evil” (Eph. 5:16). The truth is that many of us have wasted so much time and lost several opportunities that God has given to us, either as unbelievers or after we met the Lord. What time we have left is short; hence, we need to redeem it. This means, while giving no room for further wastage, we should also try to accomplish more than we could possibly do within the normal 24 hours. May the Lord help you to recover your lost time in Jesus name.
“And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage” (Exodus 2:23). After holding the Israelites in slavery for many years, the Egyptian king died. This means that no problem lasts forever. If this powerful king could die, then human enemies don’t last forever. Why? According to Hebrews 9:27, they must keep an appointment with death. Every problem in your life has an expiry date beyond which it can no longer trouble you. In fact, at the point of expiration, some problems become the solution you have been seeking. What is more important is that you do not expire or retire before the expiration of the problem. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, you will see the end of that problem: it shall not see your end. You shall not expire before the expiration of your problem.
“For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off” (Prov. 23:18). If you were in doubt before, do know today, that there is an end to your problems. Your human enemies cannot operate beyond a certain limit. If the Egyptian king could die, every strong man or woman in your life has an end. That strong man is limited. You shall see the end of satanic agents troubling you. This season, the Lord will cut off everything standing in your way to your breakthrough. God will cut them off so that your expectations shall be realized. For a user of this devotional, you have been wondering when God’s promises to you will be fulfilled because of the strong presence of the enemy. Rejoice! The lord will cut them off just to enable Him grant your expectations and fulfill His promise. Worship the Lord with all your heart and thank Him in advance.
Thank God for causing your problems to expire and making you to see their end.
