Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye
Memorise: Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation? Hebrews 1:14
Read: Daniel 6:6-23
God is the King of kings, and as a result He is in control. He controls the heavens and the earth, as well as those in them. He controls human beings and can use them to render help to the needy. In 2 Kings 5:1-14, God prompted a young maid to speak of His ability and the word got the attention of a needy general, which helped to link him with his much-needed miracle. When God prompts you to do or say something, do you obey? You cannot tell the far-reaching effects of that obedience! God controls all His subjects including earthly kings. When a king controls his domain and wants things done, all he may be required to do would be to instruct people to carry out the assignment. Everyone God needs to command to work in your favour will receive their commands from the Almighty God this season in Jesus name.
Moreover, the angels are not outside God’s sphere of control. They do His commandments and follow the voice of His word according to Psalm 103:20. Whenever He wants something done for you and there is no human being around, or the task is above the ability of humans, God can send an angel. In Daniel 6:16-23, when God was to deliver Daniel from the lion’s den, He sent an angel. Also, in Acts 12:5-11, when He was to release His servant from prison, He sent an angel. You can be assured that no security guard or prison door can stop an angel. Every task to be done in your life that requires the attention of an angel, that angel will manifest speedily in Jesus name. In addition, God has authority over demons. Job 1:6-12 shows that even the devil cannot do anything to God’s children without getting permission from God. The devil and his cohorts have to operate within the sphere of limitation God has set for them. No demon can do anything to you without God’s permission. The devil cannot hurt you at will. He cannot touch you whenever he likes except he comes to obtain permission from the King of kings. It should gladden your heart that the King of kings watches over you on a daily basis.
Thank God for being in charge of your life and circumstances. Command that demons, men and angels respond to His will concerning you.
