Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye
Memorise: That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish. Isaiah 44:25
Read: Isaiah 44:24-26
The one you have as a father determines the number of doors that can open to you. A friend of mine was coming from America to attend our Convention but decided to stop over in Kenya thinking it would be easier to get a visa there. On arrival, he was told to wait for three days. He told them that the convention he was going for would have ended by then. Then somebody asked him, “which Convention are you talking about?”, “The convention of Redeemed Christian Church of God”, he replied. The officer then retorted: “You should have said that earlier”. An hour later, he got his visa. Are you a bona fide child of God? If you are not, give your life to Jesus today! Has a particular door you have been knocking refused to open? In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I command that good door to open to you know.
One of the most important responsibilities of a father to his child is to provide security from external aggression. Our Heavenly Father in fulfilling his responsibilities promises to neutralise any kind of weapon that has been manufactured against us - be it spiritual, physical, psychological or intellectual (Isaiah 54:17). In Mark 9:17-27, a child was brought to Jesus with a particular demonic manifestation. From childhood, these stubborn demons threw the child into fire just to get him completely roasted and at other times, he was thrown into a body of water to drown him. He was preserved by the sheer vigilance of the people around him who normally rescued him but he was totally set free by the word of Jesus. There is a user of this devotional; something keeps pulling you into fire. Even after the fire burns you slightly, you still see yourself attracted to it. The Lord is setting you free. That satanic hold over your life is broken today. I decree enmity between you and that spirit of destruction. It shall not see your direction again from this moment. As the Lord effect your deliverance, testify to His glory in your church. Our Father will neutralize every device against you and your family.
Every negative force -visible or invisible- pulling me or members of my family into destruction, be destroyed now in Jesus name.
Bible in one year: Isaiah 16-18
