THE ULTIMATE IS POSSIBLE Friday 6 January


Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye

Memorise: Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Ephesians 3:20

READ: Exodus 15:24-26

Our God indeed very generous! In Psalm 23:5, David said he was anointed to the point of overflow. At the marriage feast in Cana of Galilee, when they told Him they needed more wine, he gave them more than 600 bottles of the type of wine they had never tasted. With a meager provision of two fishes and five loaves of bread, He multiplied a boy’s meal to feed thousands, yet the leftover filled 12 baskets because His name is El-Shaddai – the God who is more than enough. This year, the Lord will multiply your little to meet your needs and there shall be leftovers in Jesus name.

God goes the extra mile with us and always wants us to have the ultimate. He does not just save your soul, he also cleanses you from all sins (1 John 1:7), and gives you the nature that does not sin again. When He wants to heal, He does it perfectly. 1 Peter 2:24 says we were healed by His stripes. He is not satisfied with just healing you of sicknesses, but wants to give you the opportunity never to be sick again. Have you been battling with a particular ailment? Receive your healing now! By His grace, enjoy divine health from today in Jesus name. Exodus 15:26 says:

And said, if thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in His sight, and wilt give ear to His commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians for I am the Lord that healeth thee.

Beyond divine health, He wants His healing virtue to flow through you to the sick so that they too can be healed. Hence, in Mark 16:17-18, he says as a believer in Christ, you will lay hands on the sick and they shall recover. This is God’s ultimate plan for you in the area of healing. You should not be struggling with sickness but rather, getting others healed. What has been your experience in all of these? Ask God for the ultimate. Come out of a position where you are still asking to be healed, to a position where you are releasing the healing anointing to heal others.

PRAYER POINT:
Father, in my body today, fully effect the victory of the Cross over sickness and make me a channel of healing to others.
