CROWNED WITH GLORY Friday 30 March


Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye

Memorise: For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Psalm 8:5

Read: Psalm 8:4-5

The royalty a child of God is born into is an eternal one because our Father has an unchangeable Kingdom. When I was in primary school, we studied a subject called civics. During that subject period they could ask: Who is the minister of education and finance and you would give their names. But today, if you ask your child, who is the minister of education? That child may ask you: for which year? Because they change portfolio so often this days, particularly in a country like Nigeria. But in the Kingdom of God, if God makes you a minister or governor, it is forever! Praise God! Our Father also is the Great Physician according to Exodus 15:26 hence, all He needs do is speak and we are healed. Psalm 107:20 says He removes sicknesses just by the word of His mouth. Are you sick in your body, spirit, soul, finances, family or mind? Receive your healing now. You are healed by His stripes in Jesus name.

Psalm 24:7-10 describes our Father as the King of Glory. This is the reason He crowns His children with glory as stated in Psalm 8:4-5. Do you want to radiate that glory that will show forth your heavenly royalty to the world? All you need to do is to make your Father happy. Find time to always be in His glorious presence, feast on His Word, praise and worship Him and as you do these, before long, the glory that is on your Father will also be seen in your life. God’s glory can become a crown on your head. When God crowns you with glory, nobody – demon or circumstance – will treat you less than your royalty demands. It is then the enemies that come against you will accept their place under your feet (Luke 10:19). Whenever you go into His presence and spend quality time fellowshipping with Him, know that before you leave, He will crown you with glory! Never let any day go by without you wearing your crown!

PRAYER POINT:
Father, each day I come into Your presence, let your crown of glory be evident in my life.
