Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye
Memorise: He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Psalms 91:1
Read: Psalms 91:1-3
It is important to meditate on the awesomeness of our God. When you catch the revelation of how great our God is, your problems will pale in comparison. Besides being King of kings and Lord of lords, our God is also the Most High because Philippians 2:9 says He was given a name that is above every other name. If you have a problem that is identified by a name, it is below the name of Jesus and therefore will be solved at the application of the name of Jesus. His throne is also above every other throne because it is in the Heaven of Heavens far above all principalities and powers. In addition, His army is larger and stronger than any other army know to men and spirits. He controls all the hosts both in Heaven and on earth. He is so powerful that His influence extends to all spheres, whether Heaven, earth or underneath the earth.
Having understood that He is the Most High, there are several underlying truths that we can tap into. One of these is that, He has the last say. If you have a case in court and you are declared guilty at the magistrate court, you can go to the court of appeal to seek redress. From here you can go on to the Supreme Court. If a guilty verdict is maintained at the Supreme Court, then there is trouble. The only one who can save you from such situation is the president. But there is someone who is higher than the president of nations. When Moses asked Pharaoh to release Israel from Egypt, the latter denied knowing Him. But by the time the Lord was through with him, he had to send them packing by night. Is anyone sitting on your benefits? That fellow shall let you go this season. The most High can overrule the verdict of presidents. Psalms 33:10-11 says God rubbishes the counsel of the heathen while His counsel stands forever. It does not matter what your enemies are deciding concerning you; simply cancel them and replace them with God’s counsel. The Most High can also overrule sickness and diseases. In Mark 2:1-12, the man that was brought through the roof was carried in wearing the toga of impossibility but Jesus overruled the sickness and he returned home healed.
Lord, every negative decree against my destiny, turn it around now for my good.
