Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye
Memorise: For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after. Jeremiah 30:17
Read: Luke 6:6-10
God ordained the year of jubilee as a time of freedom (Leviticus 25:9-16). It is a time of freedom of movement, freedom to make progress and be fruitful, etc. Anyone who is in bondage slaves for his master, but at the dawn of jubilee, he is free to work for himself. Also, the time of jubilee brings freedom to worship God with your substance as you like. Some people desire to worship God but are limited by circumstances. Some people really want to praise God but they have certain situations in their life that makes others to question if God is truly in their life. Every reproach in your life, the Lord will remove it today in Jesus name. Do you crave the freedom to go in and out, do business, marry and serve God but circumstances are hindering you? Today, receive your freedom in Jesus name!
Another thing that is commonly witnessed in the year of jubilee is restoration. Restoration implies that you once had something; you lost it later got it back. Restoration is needed in different areas of life. Your health could be restored. This means you were once healthy but lost it; in the year of jubilee you can have it back. In Jeremiah 30:17, God promises to restore health to you. Were you once healthy but now in sickness? This year of jubilee, the Lord will restore good health to you. In Luke 6:6-10, we read of a man with a withered hand. For it to have withered, that suggests the hand was once whole. But when Jesus came into the scene, he restored the hand back to its original form. Is any part of your body drying up? Are you going through a withering experience? In the name of Jesus, command a reversal now. Your health shall spring forth this season. That hand or leg you could no longer use will begin to work again. Life is coming into that paralysed hand and leg now. Every good thing you have lost shall be restored!
Father, every good thing my family and I have lost, restore fully to us this year of our jubilee. Thank God for past evangelistic outreach programmes during Easter. Pray for uncommon Harvest of souls, protection and provision for all such programmes this Easter.
